About Us

Our Mission

  • Josem Consulting has been established to improve the performance of clients.

  • We do this by helping them generate more revenue, cut costs, enhance their brand, and achieve operational excellence.

  • We recognise that by continuing to grow our own skills and working hard to exceed our client expectations we will grow our own business.

  • We will maintain a conflict-free stance on every engagement so clients trust our recommendations and guidance.

  • Our core skills allow us to reliably and comprehensively guide our clients in their use of Information Technology to achieve these outcomes.

Growing client revenue

  • Driving customer loyalty – good news for our clients; bad news for their competitors
  • We enhance the campaigns that drive traffic towards the business, and those that need attention to do better
  • We help clients get their channels cooperating for maximum overall business benefit rather than for one channel’s individual cause
  • We consolidate and cross reference data to deliver the knowledge and intelligence needed to improve the quality and effectiveness of marketing and decision making
Reducing client costs
  • Increasing staff productivity by aligning systems with business processes
  • Optimising staffing levels in stores
  • Making sure that capabilities within the business are shared across all channels of the business so there is no need to invent the wheel more than once
Achieving operational excellence
  • We use our extensive knowledge about retail operations and our network of like-minded experts to guide our clients on how to improve operations
  • We always focus on business benefits
Enhancing the brand
  • We use our retail and marketing knowledge and experience to build emotional connections between clients and their target customer segments

    We specialise in the ways experiential technology can enhance emotional connections to the brand.

We would be delighted to confidentially discuss and explore ways how we can help your business in a friendly and cooperative manner.  We expect to earn your trust, and value an opportunity to do so.
