The road to excellence
Many times, simple things are most powerful. And this is the approach that Aurea follows. When it comes to delivering solutions to the clients, you need to understand Aurea’s Client Success Blueprint. It starts off with Aurea syncing with the clients to understand their goals and ambitions.
Once this is laid out, Aurea gets down to developing a work plan. Based on the client’s goals, a plan is chalked out, which also includes the necessary steps to achieve business impact. Critical milestones are tracked and executive check-ins are done.
Next follows the regular success calls. At the hearts of this program is Bi-annual Client Success calls with Aurea Executive Sponsor. During these calls, questions like “Are you successful?” are asked. And then, the target for the next six months is set keeping track on the client’s evolving business needs.
The Aurea website puts the last part of the work progress like this: “We believe there is a dramatic distinction between ‘satisfaction’ and ‘success.’ We measure progress against clients’ metrics with a simple yes or no answer to the question ‘Are you successful?’, eliminating ambiguity around the business value you expect - and we deliver.” The fourth stage of the work process involves raising Aurea to a higher standard.
Simplicity: Aurea believes that powerful products are easy to use. The software solutions from Aurea are user-friendly, focused, and flexible that adapts to the client’s needs, goals, and success.
Courage: When you build some long-term relationships with clients, you need the courage to make a few strategic investments. And over the years, Aurea has made some very strong ties with the clients- giving importance to the long-term interest.
Alignment: Syncing your success with the client’s success is a mantra that Aurea believes in. This is why a client’s business goals are aligned with the company’s. Regular meetings are held to ensure that everyone is on the same track and accountable. In the end, the client gets the value for their investment.
