- Expertise. FIVE x 5 Consulting Services has years of experience helping our customers solve their business needs while remaining compliant in a highly-regulated industry. Since we’re the #1 provider of Distillery Management software, we’re well-positioned to deliver the right solutions at the right price, and without wasting your time.
- Objectivity. Hiring an outsider gives you a unique perspective. For example, we once had a consulting services client who was considering expanding their operations and were struggling with the TTB’s Non-Contiguous Premises regulations. They had not considered that there was an alternative solution – opening a 2nd DSP, instead. For their particular case, that turned out to be the much better option. The point is, you don’t know what you don’t know.
- Risk minimization. We know what the TTB looks for because we help clients with their audits. It’s our job to read the regulations and keep up with the changes, which are frequent! This means that our consulting services can minimize your exposure to audit risk, and ensure you have your ducks in a row if it does come to an audit.
- Speed and flexibility. In comparison with hiring an employee or retaining an attorney, an outside consultant comes with serious domain expertise. They’re focused on your particular business and project, and are available for short, medium or long-term contracts. This lets you make moves or evaluate new lines of business quickly and without spending too much time or money.
