So where are your IT Systems taking your business? Are your systems delivering what you need them to?

An evaluation of UK business reveals they are employing huge IT resources which are not working in the best interests of the business. In many cases systems are not being utilised in a way which benefits the business and can often be a ‘money pit’ or hindrance to the business.

IT Consultant and Business Consultant

I am often contracted to work with industrial, commercial, and financial clients who seek help with a particular business project. On the other hand sometimes I am contracted merely to fill the shoes of a member of staff who has left an organisation whilst the organisation recruits a permanent replacement.

A typical project involves:

  • Consulting staff from different parts of a client’s organisation
  • Analysing an organisation’s data
  • Determining information system requirements and defining project objectives
  • Making recommendations, such as suggesting appropriate hardware, software and systems
  • Designing, installing and trialling new systems and software, and fixing any issues that arise
  • Compiling and presenting information
  • Writing reports and documentation
  • Repairing computer problems and removing viruses
  • Training users
  • Responding to feedback
