At Praecipio Consulting, we love our name. Its meaning explains what we do. Most people, of course, have trouble orienting themselves with the name “Praecipio,” asking questions like:
- “wait, how do you say it?”
- “so, I’m curious – how do you spell that?”
- “is it…Spanish?”
For starters, Praecipio is pronounced “Prey-sip-io.” The letters a and e are special in Praecipio. Together, the letters make up æ, a fundamental unit of the Latin and Old English alphabets. This integration of letters is significant, since the solutions we offer are an integration of knowledge and technology.
Praecipio is Latin for the English words anticipate, advise, and instruct. We chose the name because its meaning matches our meaning. Praecipio, by definition, is what we do.
We build and implement custom technology for our clients. With time, our solutions make processes run well, and capture valuable data points that explain the health of the business in terms of efficiency and profit.
These data points help clients anticipate and identify business processes with issues – execution issues or training gaps – enabling them to pinpoint spots for proactive improvement.
Our solutions, therefore, advise our clients on how to become efficient and sustainable – a long-term ROI from our services.
We instruct our clients by helping them develop, implement, and monitor their business processes. While some consulting firms implement a solution and quickly get out the door, stay committed to our clients by monitoring the performance of our solution and making tweaks to ensure the highest rate of success. We believe our clients should get the most out of their investment. Additionally, our solutions facilitate continuous improvement – and can be changed easily in the long-term as the business and economy fluctuate.
Our goal is to make our clients’ businesses run like well-oiled machines, whose productivity can be turned up and down without adversly affecting the firm’s budget. We develop our clients into consistent, sustainable businesses.
Praecipio’s meaning – both as a word and as a firm – is to help others…even if we’re just helping others spell our name.
