How we make a difference
Your venture has unique business and technology requirements. We recognise this and it is reflected in the holistic approach that we take to consulting. We have experience that few can rival of working with a wide variety of ventures in many different environments. The result is advice that is objective, impartial, and well-grounded in the realities of building and supporting an on-line venture.
Internet Vision will work hand-in-hand with you to answer some key questions:
What are the business goals of your venture ?
On occasion a client can be moving forward rapidly towards a solution to a problem. We seek to ensure that the problem being addressed is that which will meet your business goals.
What are the timescales for action?
Knowledge of the desired and ultimate timescales for key projects or improvements is fundamental to selecting an appropriate course of action. Identifying what aspects of a project are 'critical', and which are 'desirable' is invaluable in helping to ensure that projects are delivered to everyone's satisfaction.
What are your plans/projections for the future ?
Understandably, rapidly evolving companies often spend a high proportion of their time trying to resolve today's issues, without being able to plan for the future. Our fresh perspective can help you to gain clarity on your longer term business and technology goals, whilst also identifying ways to improve current practices, processes and technologies.
Our strategic and tactical consulting services will bring tangible commercial benefits to your venture from the first day you engage us:
Assistance in translating your venture's business needs into implementation plans. We are capable of appreciating the costs and benefits involved in each approach and we will work with you to identify them.
Risk assessment. We can work with you to develop an understanding of the risks involved in following particular courses of action.
An assessment of issues yet to be duly considered during the planning, implementation and maintenance phases of an IT project. We are able to work to identify, document, scope and resolve issues that are capable of impacting on the project. This process can often generate considerable savings, both in time and money. Moreover it can lift project morale and reduce the costs of induction of new people onto the project.
Assistance in procurement. We have an extensive understanding of the IT marketplace. Our clients often benefit from this by obtaining hardware, software and services on better terms than they otherwise would. It is not uncommon for saving on procurement to cover our consulting fees, even though the value we bring is primarily in other areas.
Assistance with resourcing issues. Our technology expertise means that we understand the issues involved in building technology teams. Our clients have derived major benefits from us in this sphere. These benefits range from help with defining resource requirements, to proactive input into the recruitment process to assisting new hires to integrate into existing operations
Future technology requirements. Once we gain an understanding of your future growth we can assist in determining systems and software which will scale to meet the current and future needs of our clients.
