How well does technology support your five year business plan? Are your business processes efficient and do they complement your people and technology? Do your software applications give you the information you need when you need it? Is your information protected? Do you get alerted when critical business measures are off target?

Our Technology Consulting Process

Requirements Definition: Our approach is to identify with the client the key business processes to be analyzed and the corresponding personnel to interview. We then gather information in order to define the client’s current state processes, pain points, goals for change, and strategic goals for the process. Requirements are then derived from the information gathered and prioritized.

Project Management: We assist clients with the planning, organizing, and managing the resources necessary to bring about the successful completion of specific project goals and objectives. Our primary focus is achieving the project goals and objectives while adhering to project constraints including: scope, quality, time and budget. Our secondary objective is optimizing the allocation of resources to meet pre-defined objectives

Process Re-engineering: Our approach is aimed at improving efficiency and effectiveness of the processes that exist within and across an organization by facilitating the analysis and redesign of current business processes. With an outsider’s perspective, we interview employees and management to gain understanding of current business environment and future business objectives and goals. We create process maps and assist management in evaluating the value and necessity or all products.
