«Consultancy» is very en vogue today. But finally it boils down to only one thing: obtaining results.
Your first question would be without doubt: «What does it cost to achieve what we you are proposing? »
Followed by the logical second question: « What is this going to bring us? What do we gain from all this? »
If CHAMARAL would possess a universal formula it would be easy to answer these questions. Of course this is not the case, if you continue reading, you will understand why.
Your company is rich
Surprised? Anyhow this is really true. But riches is not only about money. It’s much more, I think in riches of procedures, divisions, reports, statistics and a lot of other elements that form the foundation of your enterprise. All these parts are produced by, but also used by your people. In my opinion it is this cocktail which is the most interesting of what goes on in your company. What is a part of your company makes also the fact that your organisation is unique and of course different from others. You as entrepreneurs, in executive positions or heads of a division, you all understand this and you are trying every single day to turn these elements of riches into a competitive advantage.
“Freddy’s ability to communicate accurately in Dutch, French, English and German as well, made it possible to implement our group strategy in other plants and in other countries.”

Taking in some ‘extra power’ in the enterprise
Based on internal audit and a basic SWOT analysis I quickly achieve the knowledge of your company needed to eventual redirect your organisation to obtain better results. I am the position to make you a list with recommendations or feedback. For me this is obvious and rather easy. But there is more!
I am not delivering consultancy services based theoretical principles. I prefer by far the « hands-on » manner going into the details. Based on the internal audit I verify if we can achieve improvements in the management of those specific points of guiding and controlling the enterprise. My specialities:
- Risk Management
- Fleet & Mobility Management
- Purchase Management
- Supply Chain & Facility Management
The optimization of your working capital is our first preoccupation and by modifying only those elements which are need to be changed. Some possibilities:
Streamlining the existing processes
Analysing your stocks
Managing accounts receivables
Interpreting your statistic (I.e. plaints…)
Analysing your insurance portfolio in order to mitigate your risks
With our 25 years of experience in different branches and a track record of results your company will come out much more competitive thanks to the force of CHAMARAL aboard. I can assure you that your company will have this benefit.
“A structured way of working and Freddy’s talent for diplomacy in negotiating better supply conditions, resulted in a overall cost-cut of over € 2,0 mio in one year.”
— Paul Huybrechts, CEO, Coldset Printing Partners nv
How long does it take and what is the cost of the «extra power»?
I am looking in your enterprise as a kind of very attentive spectator. This has a lot of advantages. I can see those things which without doubt you do not notice anymore as a result of traditions: « I am already working with this supplier for many years. » Or I discover certain habits which have been installed over the years: « We always have been working this way since my father was actively managing the company. ». Everything is in evolution, that is why it very important to follow all these evolutions from nearby. This can turn out to be in your advantage. I can help you in achieving exactly this objective. We can work together in two kinds of contracts: based on a project or as interim contract. This depends on the structure of your enterprise and the kind of work to be done. However and as a principle, a job or a contract will never last longer than necessary. More, we decide this together (3 – 6 -12 months)
“The negotiated terms were sharp but Freddy understood the real meaning of offering a business partnership and we met our goal at the end: a more competitive position for our company through optimisation of processes that resulted in strategic savings.”
— Dirk Dael, General Manager, Facility Services North ISS Belgium nv
Concerning costs, I have a philosophy which is easy to understand and transparent: At the end of a contract I have realised more gains for your company than my work costs. You are winning back my cost and of course much more. You will not find a larger guarantee than this.
