Right-Sizing Project Management, Process Improvement and Engineering Solutions
According to Wendy Romeu, founder and CEO of Alluvionic, one should never underestimate the power of passion, timing and opportunity.
After earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Management and a Masters in MIS from Florida State University, Wendy Romeu spent most of her career in corporate America implementing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems. Yet, she desired more from her job.
“I’m passionate about making a difference,” she said. “I love walking into a company for a short timeframe, understanding the issue and creating a solution. When opportunity presented itself, I didn’t want the status quo. I left the corporate world to start consulting full time.”
Romeu successfully built Alluvionic, which she founded in 2013, by “right-sizing” project management, process improvement and engineering product design solutions to create a positive impact for clients. With more than 20 years of experience, she follows the natural flow of a company’s practices, procedures and processes based on its specific operations, needs and requirements. The result: a stronger baseline and foundation for continued growth.
By treating each company individually and understanding its unique culture, Alluvionic delivers comprehensive and customized project management solutions focused on doing the right things for the right reasons. “We look at what a company does well and build upon that specific system,” she said. “This innovative, forward-thinking philosophy generates unlimited opportunities and manageable risks from beginning to end.”
By utilizing a portfolio of best-in-class project management, process improvement and engineering product design systems, Alluvionic enables companies to learn, implement and achieve definitive goals and objectives. “We believe in doing things the right way for the right reasons. We look for clients striving for more than just Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) accreditation, but for an overall improved process management system,” Romeu said. “We set ourselves apart from competitors by offering a range of products and services.”
While CMMI, a necessary accreditation often required for U.S. government projects, is the cornerstone of Alluvionic’s services, Romeu and her team effectively lead extensive Enterprise Process Improvement, Project Management Office (PMO) and ERP implementations. In 2015, Alluvionic added engineering capabilities to the portfolio, diversifying and growing the business rapidly. Alluvionic’s speedy prototyping allows it to analyze for potential large-scale manufacturing concerns — all before the product hits the market.
“Clients will achieve timely results, while minimizing disruption to the organization,” she stated. “Alluvionic helps companies change processes in a less destructive way. The processes we deploy stick and clients appreciate our system, expertise and service. Too often, a company will make changes without a proper support system, performing metrics or mentoring opportunities. These companies fail and revert to their inefficient, untimely and mismanaged ways.”
Alluvionic’s national client base includes several key local and regional companies, including Craig Technologies, Jabil Defense and Aerospace, Orange County Clerk of Courts, DRS Technologies and Google. The company helped DRS Technologies implement its ERP systems throughout the United States and aided Google with specific engineering capabilities.
“Come to Alluvionic with an idea, and we will help it grow,” said Romeu. “Whether you’re a massive company looking to design something outside-the-box or a single inventor with nothing more than a napkin concept, we’re here to help you achieve your dream.”
Representing the Space Coast
In May 2017, Romeu represented 80 speakers from a variety of countries, backgrounds and experiences to share her knowledge of CMMI adoption and capability improvement experience at Capability Counts in Alexandria, Va. The series of workshops, keynotes and interactive sessions focused on delivering actionable insights on becoming a capable, mature organization.
“I was extremely excited to participate as an industry presenter,” she said. “To be surrounded by thought leaders from around the world was truly an honor. I led the session on CMMI Methodologies and the Courts and how it applies in the government sector by sharing our experience with the Orange County Clerk of Courts.”
In July 2017, Romeu led a panel on integrated delivery networks within healthcare at the ELE Live Healthcare Leadership Conference in Orlando. She discussed how Health First is leading the way in healthcare delivery by exploring the use of integration science.
Alluvionic was also a GrowFL’s 2017 Florida Companies to Watch finalist. “Being selected as a finalist was a wonderful honor,” said Romeu. “Garnering exposure such as this helps elevate our corporate profile. This was another milestone our company achieved in the short time span of four years.”
Alluvionic believes in family first and aims to make a positive impact on the lives of its employees. By striving for excellence and constantly improving each facet of the business, the company creates an environment encouraging the best from its employees. “We’re constantly looking toward the future and have each other’s back,” said Romeu. “Last year, we had two full-time employees. Today, we have 10 full-time employees, several part-time employees and various interns. For continued growth, we hope to hire another 20 employees.”
For Romeu, Central Florida is home, and she believes the resources Brevard County provides small businesses is tremendous. There are numerous assets a business owner can tap into for support, and her company is one of them.
