In July of 2002 Bill Frankel founded the Ascher Group to share the knowledge gained
for the betterment of our clients. The background of the Ascher Group is from a small
group of sales and industry analysts within the facilities management outsourcing
industry. Our analysis processes have been proven to work across industries, corporate
disciplines and functional areas. We utilize a combination of qualitative, economic
and process analysis to meet our clients’ needs.
The firm has been started from a base of experience within the printing industry.
The majority of the work that was performed surrounded copy, print, facsimile and
mail centers but as the industry grew so did the level of expertise in additional
areas such as IT outsourcing, process reengineering, quality assessment, and acquisition

the program that are used to train and hire the sales staff, and evaluate the operational
and financial aspects of the outsourcing group.
The primary tenants of the Ascher Group were envisioned from the conception of the
group and remain as our benchmarks for service:
