Independent advice delivering real business outcomes

Whether you’re transitioning from older technology, upgrading your current technology, or rolling out brand new IT initiatives, designing the system and selecting the right service provider and technology can be a real challenge. But, it is also the difference between achieving your objective or losing your investment. This is where Initio’s consulting services can help.

Understanding your business requirements:
Our first step is to take the time to fully understand your business and its objectives. We then apply our knowledge of current IT trends and solutions, to analyse the most cost-effective and long-term options for your organisation.

Designing the right system
We then prepare a draft system design to meet these objectives in consultation with your team. At this stage of the process, we have identified three key commitments for the project to succeed:
1.Management needs to fully understand the functionality requested in the system design
2.IT needs to be embraced as an important part of the company’s business strategy
3.Sufficient internal resources must be committed to delivering the project to completion

Selecting the right vendor
Once the system design document is finalised, we discuss and agree on a selected list of suitable vendors that will be asked to respond with quotations. Initio assists in the evaluation of responses and makes recommendations as to their suitability.

Delivering the project Initio can assist in contract negotiations with the chosen supplier in terms of payment structure and processes such as sign off milestones within the project, functional acceptance testing, retention clauses, ongoing support structures, project planning, reporting and more.
