She was only 18 when she started her first business, The Mills of Perrineat Auriac-sur-Vendinelle. For 22 years, Perrine Guibal led this agricultural business, which experienced a flourishing development by transforming the crops from the family farm into finished products (oils, flour, bread, pasta, etc.) and then marketing them.
In November 2021, the entrepreneur turned this page in his life by giving his “baby” to three young farmers from Lauragais. After a break of just over a year, she decided to launch her consulting firm, which she gave the name Optimize with Perrine. With a very clear idea in mind: “I said to myself that I could get a lot of people to take advantage of all the tools that I was able to put in place these years to save time in my work and in the management of my business. “
An optimized working environment to increase efficiency
Now a consultant office organizationPerrine Guibal therefore offers to support its customers and in particular business leaders in the implementation of tools and working methods that aim to facilitate the management of their business and thus their daily lives.
Today, there are a whole lot of time-saving tricks. In particular, you can do a lot of things thanks to the computer tool, such as optimizing the use of your e-mail, setting up classification methods on your desktop, using Excel documents to, for example, automatically calculate profitability thresholds … These are tools that I have introduced for my business, which has been very useful to me and which is easy to customize.
The entrepreneur also insists on the importance of evolving into one cleaned working environment. “Having a desk and more generally a tidy work area necessarily gives peace of mind. When you work in a clean universe, you gain in efficiency”, assures the consultant, who therefore offers various more targeted services such as. sorting and archiving of administrative documentsI’organizing your computer but also securing your data.
Helps companies go digital
Perrine Guibal suggests that as wellsupport certain companies to turn to digital. She mentions in particular the example of farming, an activity sector where she has also gained a wealth of experience.
There is software that allows you to edit documents to calculate the cost per. hectares, others for rent … It is also possible to digitize many documents to save paperwork. I am thinking, for example, of delivery notes or invoices for farms that conduct direct sales. Many farmers still accumulate mountains of papers, but I think we can no longer ignore this need to optimize the management of this whole administrative part of a business. My experience has shown me that it was often an investment in the beginning, but which saves a lot of time afterwards.
A review before implementing an action plan
When she is contacted by a company director who calls for her services, Perrine Guibal first offers her a two hour revision. “It’s important to go to the page to see how people work and the universe they develop in. And it’s from there that I see what the opportunities for improvement are, and I make an estimate of the different initiatives, to be taken, ”she explains.
But the consultant also offers more specific services in just a few hours around more specific actions, and which can also appeal to individuals: online administrative proceduressupport for configuration of IT devicesestablishingtrees on computer desk… “I adapt to all wishes. And when I do not know how, I say it, ”she says.
It should also be noted that the services offered by Perrine Guibal, which fall within the scope of personal services, entitle them to a 50% tax reduction for the customer.
