IT Consulting Services

Companies in the IT consulting services industry face a number of business challenges, including ever-changing technology, customer demand for leading-edge systems, globalization and increased competition as well as rising costs.

To be successful, IT consulting services companies have to attract and develop new clients – a struggle that’s likely to shape their businesses going forward – and they have to efficiently deal with a difficult economy and an increasingly global marketplace.

In addition to focusing on generating new business, IT consulting services companies are also under the gun to innovate and develop new ideas – more so than in other industries – and share those ideas with their customers and other influencers in the industry.

Because the market is so competitive, firms in the IT consulting services industry also have a more difficult time finding and retaining talent – always a business challenge but especially so in today’s economy. To compete in today’s marketplace, IT consulting services companies have to demonstrate their expertise, their thought processes, and generate results. The firms that succeed will be those that can show the world how they innovate.

Project based

The IT consulting services industry is always changing so companies have to pay close attention to the growing technology needs of their customers, e.g., services related to service oriented architecture, increasing demand for storage and security, and cloud services that allow corporations to make the most of their IT resources. IT consulting services firms have to offer both project-based and managed services across a variety of technology solutions.

To handle these many different pressures, companies in the IT consulting services sector will have to identify efficient strategic approaches. They will have to find ways to more effectively use time and resources to find new clients and ward off competitors.

Firms in the IT consulting services industry must go after new opportunities in new markets, in different regions of the world. It’s particularly important for IT consulting services firms to go global because most enterprises have worldwide dealings through direct subsidiaries, customers, and partners
IT consulting services firms also face the constant challenge of aligning their staffs, and executing software to the exact specifications of their clients, while delivering projects on time and on budget so they can remain profitable.

Challenges

Technology and data are critical parts of any business, and IT consulting services companies have to leverage this technology and data to improve their own bottom lines, and in the process the bottom lines of their customers.

To help manage the complexity and volume of data, most IT consulting services companies implement disparate project management tools but their business operations run less efficiently than ever. Advanced technology is key to helping IT consulting services companies deliver projects more efficiently.

Project ERP

To track complex projects, IT consulting services companies must implement a structured, controlled way of managing their projects via a Project ERP system. The system should enable them to monitor all the changes to the costs and progress of their projects and allow them to make adjustments instantly.

When problems arise, Project ERP helps IT consulting services companies rapidly respond to customer requests as well as better manage and execute their projects.

The premise of Project ERP is that accurate and timely information must flow seamlessly between the various business functions. That way decision-makers will not only have visibility into what’s going on inside the enterprise, they’ll also have greater control over all parts of the business.

Value proposition

By choosing ADEACA’s Project ERP solution to help manage day-to-day project operations, IT consulting services companies can meet their project goals and deadlines. With a true Project ERP system like the one offered by ADEACA, IT consulting services companies can:

  • Provide a more cohesive view of operations in real-time
  • Cut down on manual work, and make cost-effective maintenance planning possible
  • Meet the need for global standards
  • Effectively evaluate the profitability of projects in the sales phase and maintain that profitability through planning, design, and development
  • Ensure resources are utilized effectively across a portfolio of projects
  • Reduce margin variance and cost overruns by showing exactly which resources and equipment will be available prior to project start
  • Improve post-delivery service opportunities by coming in on time and on budget more often
  • Quickly respond to scope changes and other external delays, including the impact across their portfolio of projects
  • Provide a clear real time view of their utilization and profitability across their entire portfolio of projects and clients
  • Enable close collaboration between their people, no matter where in the world they are based
  • Effectively manage time, costs, resources, contracts, and changes in a single solution

Generic ERP just doesn’t work for project-based businesses like IT consulting services companies. In fact, implementing an enterprise ERP system could even hinder productivity and profitability.

Project ERP software from ADEACA, on the other hand, will enable IT consulting services companies to effectively manage and control their client engagements and all related processes while at the same time provide the required insights into business performance. This means they can operate more efficiently, make timely and informed business decisions, reduce risks and increase profitability.
