CMTC Teaches Companies to Cut Time and Costs on Administrative Processes With Lean Office

A CMTC Workshop for Any Business That Spends Too Much Time on Billing, Orders, Collections and Other Administrative Processes

TORRANCE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 9, 2006 -- Lean principles have been applied to business processes for almost 50 years now and companies that employ these principles have reaped huge economic benefit -- improving quality, costs and cycle time. Given the considerable time and resources companies spend in the front office, many managers, owners and executives want to know if there isn't a way to apply Lean to the administrative processes of their business.

California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC) has the answer. As a leading practitioner of Lean through its Speed-To-Market™ branded services and products, CMTC has developed a unique toolkit, coupled with a lean office simulation, to improve and deploy companies' effective administrative processes. CMTC will introduce the toolkit and other methodologies to interested Southern California companies at a Lean Office Workshop on October 25, 2006 in Anaheim. Details are as follows:

October 25, 2006
8:30am - 4:30pm
Embassy Suites Hotel
11767 Harbor Boulevard
Garden Grove, CA
Cost: $69
Interested participants should contact Sunny Lopez at (310) 263-3009 today. Space will be limited due to the hands-on nature of the workshop. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.

This workshop will help participants identify and eliminate waste in the office and will provide an economic framework for determining which lean techniques will yield the greatest payback. CMTC consultants will divulge strategies for identifying, implementing, institutionalizing and sustaining improvement to your office.

By employing CMTC's Speed-To-Market™ products, introduced and applied in this workshop, companies will be able to develop an office that gets more done with significantly less effort.
