Why consultancy?Sometimes it is easy to spot when a requirement goes beyond being training to having a specific issue in your work place that needs resolving.
Some (real-life) examples of consultancy:
1. (Leading Global Energy Company) Fixing and automating financial month-end spreadsheets, allowing users to be more efficient in report production, thus enabling faster and more accurate management decisions.
2. (Leading marine re-insurance company) Taking an existing Access customer database, adding greater functionality, query options and reports enabling the organisation to have better control of their data with greater efficiency.
3. Microsoft Project Server: A leading household insurance company were looking to leverage the enterprise solutions available with Microsoft Project Server. With a successful track record in implementation, testing, administration and end-user training, we assisted the client in implementation of Project Server and end-user training to over 80 users.
4. (Business Intelligence organisation) This involved consolidating Microsoft Word questionnaire templates to ensure best practise, and consistent corporate identity and operation. The work involved consultation, testing, and guided deployment.
