Businesses are generally concentrated on one of two areas at a given point in their development depending on their specific set of circumstances; reducing operational costs, lowering risks, and eliminating complexity or they’re interested in maximizing income, improving efficiency and becoming more agile. Comport executives and partners are business-focused high performing experts in their skills who are extremely competent to help your company achieve all these objectives. We approach each situation leveraging the decades of experience, but also with eyes and ears open to learn first your challenges and then employ the right plan of action to maximize our positive impact.
We believe that many small business owners today miss out on truly growing a valuable company. Of course there is value in creating jobs and an income for the owner, but has the “true value” of the company increased. By “true value” we mean what the company would be worth if sold to a third party.
You realize that you can increase your sales, number of employees, square feet of facilities, and even the number of locations, but not increase the value of your business. In fact many have experienced growth in all these areas only to find their value to be zero or less.

Optimizing and transforming a business is more than building an advanced technical infrastructure. It also requires workflow processes that are streamlined with minimal task redundancies and periods of slack time. Automation is a step in the right direction to increasing productivity but it won’t achieve its full impact without best practice procedures and performance reporting systems in place with proper audit points and controls.
As technology advances and business information systems become more dynamically available, the levels of risk grow and maintaining privacy becomes a key challenge. Many businesses focus on securing critical business information through technical solutions but typically don’t reach full value due to a lack of policies, procedures and education and enforcement programs to drive workforce compliance. We excel at optimizing and automating processes to reduce cycle times, accelerate productivity gains, enhance reporting times and accuracy, while assuring regulatory compliance and confidentiality.
