Strategic Planning

Even the best-in-class or the most innovative offerings need a plan that is engineered for success, and key performance measures to get there. That means not only scrutinizing your unique offer, but also understanding changing market needs and retail partner and distribution requirements. Mistakes can be very expensive to revisit after the fact.

Can’t afford full-time head count? With our broad network of associates, we can help you fill a needed role and get  the results you need during an interim time frame that you can define.

Sales

bluesalve partners will help you get full value from your existing or developing sales force. We've built and trained sales organizations and teams, and helped produce the kinds of data and support that are needed for maximum sales success. We've sold literally billions of dollars of products and services, and know that sales success comes from good execution.

Marketing

We've launched nascent brands into crowded markets and built them to success from scratch. We've pioneered new products and services in both the physical and online worlds. We've re-invented brands, their products and processes, and done this with the limited budgets that the consumer goods space often demands. Money helps, but marketing success is defined by execution and coordination.

Product Development

We have deep experience throughout the entire supply chain, from materials to end users. Whether helping to define markets and discover end-user needs and pains, or getting it made on time and on budget; we have collectively planned, built and executed on tens of millions of items that consumers and businesses have bought and used– and at a profit for our companies and customers.

Implementation

Appropriate first questions might be "Do we understand the unique advantage of our product or service, and we are articulating it clearly to all of our constituents? Do we really understand our competition? Do we really understand what our customers need and what their challenges are? Are we delivering what our customers are asking for, in all the ways they’re asking for it?"

Engineering Management

The bluesalve team has been successful in creating and reviewing cloud  architectures and software development for start-ups and some of the largest technology companies in the world. Many products in the market require efficient embedded firmware in order to meet the necessary price points and zero latency functionality. Whether software or firmware, we will work with your team to get it done efficiently.
