Business Planning, Consultancy and Advice:
Do you have business goals that you need support with, related to technology, IT, apps, web systems, or staff training, or you are looking for systems support in planning overseas developments? we can help with developing strategies and plans for achieving these. Having worked extensively in the Asia – Pacific region Europe and North America, we can easily set up systems that you can use with customers, and recommend contacts and suppliers in those areas.
We are happy to work with senior staff, as they develop their knowledge and skill set for current and future positions. Generally our approach is through face to face meetings where we can discuss business and management issues that they are working to develop. Often our mentoring is linked to request from one of the local universities or to other support organisations.
Quite a lot of business comes our way from customers who have not achieved their expected outcomes when working with other suppliers, or their supply chain for projects and activities involving technology being implemented in the UK or overseas.
If it is important to audit the work of contractors or your suppliers against your project criteria, and report back on any issues and the steps that can be taken to remedy them, or to examine a quotation and comment on its cost effectiveness or quality of its recommended solution, and suggest missing elements, then our audit process will fit the bill and save you a packet.

If we are developing or project managing systems and web solutions for your organisation we can include resources for your staff or target audience, and arrange training of groups for projects we run.
