You need to know
before begin everything.

We provide consulting services, which means we help companies and businesses to identify, explore, and solve their challenges. The end-goal is to help the businesses understand and improve their positions, in terms of reduced costs, reduced risks, and smarter decisions. Our services focus on management consulting, accounting, taxation, organization management: strategy, buildout, and guidance.

A lot of people use these terms interchangeably. To clarify: - A consultant provides strategic guidance to company leadership - A technical contractor works in a staff-augmentation capacity You’d engage a consultant to set your direction, then possibly hire contractors to build out that vision. So, LUCENT works as a Consultant.

We prefer to keep things simple and straightforward: - We start with initial consultant. This is free, brief meeting in which we learn about each other and we get a deeper picture of your situation; - If there is mutual interest, we work together to scope out a project; - After that, we execute the standard paperwork and get started and That’s it

Our clients range from 2 – 200 employees and from pre-launch start-ups to companies with $275 million dollars in annual revenue.

We are a fixed price solution provider, who believes in providing ‘value’ to each of our clients and are committed to delivering results. We provide our clients with a not-to-exceed cost estimate before beginning any work. No one likes surprises, so we work with our clients to understand their specific business needs and then outline our plan of action and the associated costs to implement those solutions.

Typically, our clients are experiencing one or more of the following scenarios:
- Struggling with challenges or obstacles within their business that is holding their company back from achieving growth and higher profitability;
- Challenged by scaling their business or developing and implementing a growth plan that actually delivers intended results;
- The company has outgrown their existing business processes, causing problems with daily operations (errors, increased costs, unreliable results, slower than expected output etc.)

We believe the answer is, how can you afford not to hire someone to help you, as typically business challenges only get worse not better. More importantly, you need to portfolio with a consulting firm that can actually deliver ‘results’… not just any results, but results that will positively impact your business and breathe new life into your business. That’s why our initial consultation with a potential new client is a no-cost, no-risk meeting where we can determine if we can provide a viable, cost-effective solution to you, and more importantly, you can learn more about our firm and whether we would be a good fit for you and your business.

Every potential new client meets with the managing director within our firm. This initial consultant is not a sales call, we want to provide full transparency to who we are as a consulting firm and have an open dialogue with you to determine how we might help your business. We do not try to be all things to all people, if we don’t believe we can solve your company’s challenges or meet its goals and expectations, then we are going to openly tell you that. Our firm is built on strong values and the belief that ‘our success is achieved by helping you be successful.
