Do you know what you want your IT system to be capable of in 5 years? An IT Consultant can help you to plan your IT system. Most companies don’t truly know what they want from their IT system now, let alone in 5 years time!
To compliment your business strategy you will need an IT strategy that defines “competitive advantage” and the value technology can offer your products, services and business processes. The right IT strategy will enhance your businesses chance of success.
Take advantage of IT Consultancy to avoid costly mistakes
Many companies purchase IT services and products on an ad-hoc basis ie “we need a new laptop – lets buy one” However when you start to get into more technical decisions about more complex networking requirements or software purchases, this approach is not relevant. Ad hoc investments can result in wasting money on inappropriate goods and services and time and hassle to rectify poor decisions. At BWBD LTD we take a long term approach to technology and work hard to ensure that hardware and software recommendations will satisfy the company’s IT strategy for the foreseeable future.
If a company has a vision then their IT strategy should closely tie in with that. A company’s IT system can be the thing that sets them apart from their competition and can enable modern businesses to reduce costs, improve efficiency & enhance customer service.
What do we mean by IT Consultancy?
Here at BWBD LTD we know that every business is different and therefore needs are different. We don’t have a one size fits all approach to IT Consultancy and we truly do tailor the consultancy service to your businesses needs both today and going forward. In some instances we do single one off pieces of work for a client and for others we have an on-going long term approach.
In most cases we start by identifying the needs of the client – these can be issues which the business is facing or can be visions which the business wants to achieve. Generally we like to get a structured IT Strategy document produced for the client and use this as the basis to move forward. In some cases a client will already have an IT strategy and will know exactly where their IT systems need to move to so they can achieve the original goals which they have identified, in these cases we can work in tandem with the in house IT team to ensure that the right solutions are selected and that any implementations are carried out in a manner which has a maximum positive impact on the business.
I’ve never used an IT Consultant before – why do I need one and what will it do for me?
We come across new clients all of the time who have never used an IT Consultant and in some cases there is adquate internal resource to fulfill this role. In many cases we find that our knowledge and experience in dealing with a diverse range of clients of all varying size and spanning most business sectors brings new ideas to the table which have maybe not been considered or have been dismissed due to lack of experience in a specific product or technology. This expertise is not something that can be taught and only comes from long standing IT Consultancy companies who have many years experience and a wide range of clients.
Of course there are many common factors which we see in our clients and there are often a lot of quick easy fixes which can be identified to help a business succeed with improved use of IT systems.
We would expect that if your business uses an IT Consultancy service from BWBD LTD that you would see improved efficiencies throughout your business or department and that cost savings can be achieved by adoption of some of the strategies which we recommend.
