NEW YORK, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SSA & Company has been named by Forbes as one of the nation's top management consulting firms. Specifically, the company was recognized in the Data Analytics and Big Data category. The list was compiled by Forbes based on independent market surveys—and SSA and Company was recognized for "a disproportionately high number of client recommendations" compared to direct peers.
To select the list of America's Best Management Consulting Firms, Forbes magazine collaborated with online statistics provider Statista and conducted two online surveys. The first asked 7,286 partners and project managers from management consultancies to recommend peer consultancies, excluding their own, across 15 industries and 16 functional areas. The second asked 1,316 management consultancy clients to make recommendations from a list of consultancies within industries that they have worked within the past four years. The surveys were conducted in the fourth quarter of 2015 and the first quarter of 2016.
"We're extremely proud of the data-driven solutions which have generated strong client recommendations to earn us this recognition," said Deb Henretta, SSA Senior Advisor and former Group President of e-Business at Procter and Gamble. "Our clients tell us that we have become their preferred partner because we help them create tangible, financial value that's tied to their businesses' strategic imperatives. Insights without action have no value. That's why we focus on helping clients integrate big data, new analytics tools, and advanced technology into their core operations to drive rapid results."
"When our clients recognize SSA & Company – an operations consulting firm – as a data analytics leader, it indicates the new direction that advanced analytics is taking. Big data has evolved from a set of tools and technology to new ways of solving fundamental business problems," said David Niles, President of SSA & Company & G100 Companies. "As the opportunities for gaining competitive advantage with big data have become real – in cutting costs, driving revenue, redefining operating models, or creating new business products or services – CEOs are looking for partners to help them achieve profit growth."
"We've built a data analytics practice and delivery model to help global business leaders advance operations to drive profit growth in today's fast-evolving business environment – we are honored to receive this recognition from our clients," said Jason Meil, SSA & Company's Managing Director of New Products & Innovation. "We continue to believe that helping clients drive data to insights and insights to actions differentiates us in the marketplace, and more importantly, delivers far better results for our clients."
