  8. 8. Custom Solutions 1. Problems with Undefinable Answers 2. Define “Creative- Constraints” 3. Leverage our Solution Network 4. Implement a controlled Live Pilot within 180 days 5. Build Case Study, verify ROI, Next Steps (for competitive advantage)
  9. 9. What We Ask FromYou Define one or more problem sets with “undefined answers” - Meaningful implications (mission critical) - Balance of constraints and creativity (we help you define) Commitment to Implement a Funded Pilot Project: - Controlled Risk, (minimum dollar commitment) - Reference-able, ROI/KPI Metrics + Case Study (we will create)
