In a Nutshell...

You may notice our website URL reads ‘Phase 5 Group.’ That‘s because we got our start in consulting as Phase 5 Group. We later used our consulting expertise to develop EON, which we designed to help take the guesswork out of improvement.

Hence, EON: Powered by P5G.

Our Origins

EON began in 2005 as a consultancy called Phase 5 Group (P5G) and our mission was to help large, multi-site companies deploy sustainable operational excellence programs (OpEx). That’s consulting speak for “we helped companies improve.”  We were privileged to partner with some of the world’s premier companies, helping them make their OpEx programs more impactful and learning a lot along the way.

Our ‘Aha!’ Moment

What became abundantly clear to us during that time was that, while many organizations have very capable OpEx teams with the knowledge to implement OpEx methods and tools, what they lack is a solution to help them create internal buy-in, improve OpEx team productivity, and better manage their work.  Put another way, OpEx leaders and teams need a solution that makes them teams better at their jobs so they can generate more impactful, sustainable results from the work they’re already doing.

We knew there had to be a better way—so we set out to create it

‘Nacho‘ Average Software

In April of 2013, we began building the solution now known as EON. What you probably don’t know is that in the early development days we called it “Project Nacho” …because everyone loves nachos, and we wanted to develop a solution that everybody loves as well. We were officially on our way to creating the first ever comprehensive operational excellence platform along with a unique combination of content and services specifically designed to meet the needs of OpEx leaders and their teams.

The Big Picture

Although our business has evolved notably over the years, our roots are what give us the upper hand in helping our clients improve. We believe in a holistic and, above all, sustainable approach to business improvement. That’s why when our clients rely on EON.

Simply put, we believe that an awesome product and first-rate customer service is an unbeatable combination. Our clients feel the same way.
