ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Technical College can help you with your business.

Albany Tech's new Center for Business Solutions is an extension of the College's Economic Development division.

It is not just for manufacturers. It can help retailers or any other enterprise that needs to be more effective.

Whether it is workforce skills, technical skills or professional development, the Center for Business Solutions can design, develop and deliver training solutions to meet a company's specific needs in its time frame.

 "Walking into a business, getting to know what the issues are that that business i s facing, and then coming up with a branded solution specifically for that business, that helps address the issues or the problems that they might be having, and of course that affects their bottom line," says Matt Trice, Economic Development Programs VP.

This program is designed to help business owners reduce waste, improve effectiveness, and raise profitability.

Albany Tech wants the public to know that the school can offer business solutions not just for manufacturing, but also for retail or any other enterprise that needs to be more effective.

ATC's new Center for Business Solutions (CBS), is an extension of the College's Economic Development division to provide expanded business solutions for area employers.

Here's more from Albany Tech-

Dedicated to improving workplaces around all of Southwest Georgia, CBS will focus heavily on providing customized business training and continuing education, as well as provide outlets on the college campus for venues and services to clients.

Whether it is workforce skills, technical skills or professional development, the Center for Business Solutions at Albany Tech can design, develop and deliver training solutions to specifically meet the needs of any area businesses and within each company's time frame. Solutions are always customized to company-prescribed guidelines and delivered how, when, and where it is convenient to each business. "At our new Center for Business Solutions, we are dedicated to providing solutions to improve your business operations and impact your bottom line," said Matt Trice, Vice President for CBS at Albany Tech.

With the existing program offerings at Albany Tech, including Business Logistics, Lean Six Sigma, Operations Management, and the upcoming Project Management Program, the Center for Business Solutions provides comprehensive workforce training solutions and professional development for area employers and their employees. The Business Logistics program through CBS has been called one of the best logistics educational online programs in this region.

The program's goal is to teach the next leaders the business of logistics, which is more important than ever in ensuring our goods and services are delivered at the right time, place and costs in the global marketplace. Lean Six Sigma offers both green and black belt certifications through CBS's partnership with The Quality Group in Atlanta. This program is designed to equip individuals with the methodologies and tools that will enable them to make, at times, dramatic improvements to processes that can reduce waste, improve effectiveness, and raise profitability.

And, in comparison to other institutions offering Lean Six Sigma, Albany Tech's program remains the lowest in the state and is HOPE Grant eligible. Operations Management is a new program that will be offered through CBS in January 2013. This program is designed to plan, direct, or coordinate the operations of public or private sector organizations. Individuals earning the associate degree in Operations Management will complete the educational requirements for Certified Associate Project Manager (CAPM®) and have the opportunity to complete other requirements for certification testing.
