This was a scam from the beginning. We were sold a promise that IPA could not, and did not deliver. We were promissed a 3-1 return on our investment in the first year, or they were forced to return our money. We were promissed that we would have specialist who had a consulting history specializing in our industry. Instead they spend weeks trying to understand how our industry worked, on our dime ($300+ an hour per person, which usually consisted of 2-3 analyst.
We were told that they could provide ways to capitalize returns and gain new business. Instead they took forms that had been created for different industries and tried to tie them in with our industry to no avail.
We were forced into rating them higher than what we wanted to each week. Every time I would rate them a 1 out of 5 it was high pressure meeting after meeting until I was more or less forced to up the score.
I tried to get them to leave on multiple occasions and was told that they were real close to getting the next phase accomplished and if they left then that the last week or two ($35K per week) would have been a complete waste of money unless they could finish.
I finally sent people home claiming that they were using personal time while charging us and they had no knowledge base of what needed to be done. Only then to have them fly a new clueless person in on my dime explaining that there had to be two people working there the whole time or else they were inefficient.
I could not be more dissapointed. We were promissed a complete binder full of different operating procedures from cleaning the office, to running superintendents and cash flow analysis etc, etc. Instead I get a cheap recordable CD with only a handful of files on it.
Please people, learn from my experience and hire a local consulatant no longer than three to five days. If they stay londer than that they are taking advantage of you.
If there are any attorneys out there that think I might be able to relinquish some money please contact me.
