Allied Health is different to an ordinary business with a product to sell. We are a helping profession and the business stuff doesn't come naturally! Luckily, with Ailin on board, the business stuff is natural to her and her mentoring means it is easy to incorporate into the planning of a health service. I feel confident that my business can grow and establish in a competitive market because I have a solid and clear plan that I can action as I move forward. I knew what I had to do after the first meeting. I had a plan with clear steps and goals to move my dream forward towards reality. I was very impressed with how thorough Ailin was. I have a practical meaningful business plan and have taken the initial steps to make my business happen. And gotten clients as a result!

When it comes to specialist medical services, it is imperative to have somebody who understands and is willing to adjust their thought-processes to the business environment of a niche industry. Alcumus achieved this and much more. We were grateful to have the input and support of people who cared not only on a professional level but on a personal one. To have such a winning combination is probably what sets Alcumus apart for start-up companies in the Dental and Medical industry

Theranostics Australia engaged Alcumus in the early stages of the business. Ailin was able to effectively work with the challenges and opportunities of a start-up company and map and develop systems and processes to bring structure to a vision.

Ailin’s skills in management reporting, budgeting and forecasting have been invaluable. She consistently ensured she added value and showed professionalism, a commitment to delivery against targets and a positive attitude that was great to work with.

I would happily recommend Alcumus to other businesses. The service provided shines a light on ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’ which is priceless.

Alcumus was recommended to us by dental colleagues who had used them for a similar start up dental practice in Perth. We were reluctant at the beginning to outsource the business plans to an adviser, as we felt we had a decent grasp on our financial requirements and forecasted projections. Well, we didn’t! Let’s just say if it weren’t for Alcumus we would never have managed to bring our plan to fruition. After having difficulty sorting out financing early on, we contacted Alcumus and asked them for help. They immediately took over and redrafted the entire plan in a way that was professional and realistic, and all in the space of two days. Even though we were starting a green site dental practice, the plan Alcumus finally put together for us resulted in full offers from each of the banks we approached. We were delighted with the speed, precision and professionalism we encountered at every stage of the process. I have little doubt that we will continue to use Alcumus for other facets of our business. They are our mentors, our confidants, they even helped us with our lease negotiations and marketing plans. In short, they are our go to guys now and it is a relief to be able to stop searching. We could not recommend them more.
