STATS strategic trade alliance targets

Planning a web strategy is every bit as important as designing the perfect layout for your web site. It ultimately determines whether the project succeeds. IMS has repeatedly uncovered trends and opportunities within industries as we research, design and launch even the smallest of internet projects. Often we uncover what we call STATS -Strategic Trade Alliance Targets- for our clients. This allows them to tap into normally competing enities to capture a greater market share. Often re-engineering a company's direction leverages existing technologies they don't have within their legacy systems and strengthens their management. IMS visions can become the navagation aid for your business.

"Innovation requires us to systematically identify changes
that have already occurred within a business - in demographics,
in values, in technology or competition -- and then to look at
them as opportunities. It also requires something that is
most difficult for existing companies to do: to abandon
rather than defend yesterday." IMS 3-99

Thinking about how the business rules have changed?Incubating new ideas and business plans often requires paralleling the steps used in all real lab experiments. Isolate them from all current practices less they become tainted and useless. Moving an existing business model to the internet spells disaster, since it never addresses the true forces at play.

The consumer rules in the .com world and no salemen are allowed. Their perceived value better equal the actual value or that customer will seek competitive choices online elsewhere..... just a mouse click away!!

"Dinosaurs were highly successful and lasted a long time.
They never really went away. They became smaller, faster, and more
agile, and now we call them vultures eating at our business.

Long range planning does not deal with future decisions,
but with the future of present decisions. In these times

of rapid change prepare yourself. The learners inherit the Earth,
while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to
deal with a world that no longer exists." IMS 3-99

IMS consulting services delivers value to dynamic, knowledge-driven organizations through investigating all viable senerios for their clients. The web is a trail and error medium and their are no set rules. We call this decision-making process a "web enablement plan. IMS employs this process on all our web projects since 1994.
