Management Consultants

Helping Management Consultants become more effective

It’s a well-known fact that nobody is an expert at everything. Why then do businesses whose core competencies have nothing to do with IT often choose to run and manage their own IT infrastructure? This tendency to try to take care of IT needs in-house more often than not leads to a number of adverse situations that draw a Management Consulting firms’ attention away from the bottom line.

It is far more efficient for firms to rely on IT experts. It eliminates the need for the managing partner to spend time trying to manage the personnel necessary for in-house IT. Management Consultants do not often have deep technical expertise, and when they do, it’s a skill better utilized by selling it as a service to customers than to be used to manage internal IT needs. It’s just more profitable!

Focus your time, skills and billing on your customers

In-house IT resources cost money. To keep up with ever evolving technology and security issues, internal resources must be trained and kept up to date with the latest IT trends. If, on the other hand, you invested in another Management Consultant, you would be able to focus on expanding you access to customers, increase your billing be able to focus on getting new customers.

Get greater access to smart minds and additional systems

Outsourcing provides another key advantage – you will access not to one, but an entire team of experts. In general, issues related to IT are such that a single person not will not have the capacity of diagnosing problems and resolving issues due to specialisation and complexity. Furthermore, when Management Consulting firms outsource their IT, they get access to services they did not have before such as: 24/7 support, scalability, access to reports which track confidential data access, deletions and improper data sharing.

Decrease your CAPEX costs

IT Outsourcing moves the cost-line from Capex to Opex as they are offered as a pay as you go service, so there’s no need for capital expenditure at all. And because moving into an outsourcing model is fast, businesses have minimal project start-up costs and predictable ongoing operating expenses and can immediately decrease the impact of IT costs in their balance sheets.

Increase competitiveness

IT outsourcing helps Management Consulting firms deal with customer data. How? A management consultant’s ability to successfully manage and deliver the right customer outcomes is directly related to the data that he gathers from customers (for analysis). Through an outsourced IT model, Management Consulting firms can ‘leverage’ the IT systems and analysis capabilities of the outsourcing company to better analyse customer data and provide management consultants with deeper insights at a fraction of the cost of building such capability in-house. Think about it: You can extend the services of your IT outsourcing partner into your customer base.

Increased and more effective collaboration

Cloud computing increases collaboration by allowing all employees – wherever they are – to sync up and work on documents and shared apps simultaneously, and follow colleagues and records to receive critical updates in real time. A survey by Frost & Sullivan found that companies which invested in collaboration technology had a 400% return on investment.

Competitiveness

Outsourcing IT grants Management Consulting firms access to enterprise-class technology. It also allows smaller businesses to act faster than big, established competitors. It removes laborious and time consuming IT related work to the outsource company, allowing David to once again out-manoeuvre Goliath.
