Consulting

Deciding on a technology strategy, solution or approach for your business when so many options are available, can seem like a complex and bewildering challenge.

When you chose Astec as your technology partner, you’ll see that we always take a consultative approach in all our dealings with you, providing you with guidance and advice tailored to your business. We’re certain that you’ll find our approach refreshing and of great value to your business, but you may at times need a greater level of input. This might be to support particular projects or for ongoing input at a strategic or board level.

We understand business and we understand technology. We will get to know your objectives, whether that’s your overall business objectives or those relating to a project and we will build IT strategies and solutions that will support them both in the short and long term. Engagement can be provided in a number of ways:

Project Consultant

We work with you to build a technology solution or approach for a specific project and optionally provide project management and delivery. Examples might include;

  • Company acquisition or merger requiring IT system integration – use us to plan, manage and execute the integration of IT systems.
  • Office relocations – Moving offices can have big implications for your IT systems. Engage with us from an early stage to review options, plan and oversee the relocation.
  • Procurement of a line of business application – use us to provide supplier and product analysis and comparison or system specification design.
  • Tender or audit responses – often tenders or third-party audits require detailed technology responses. Use our services to complete these on your behalf.

Shadow IT Director

We will provide the services of an IT Director role either on an interim or permanent basis. Using our understanding of business and your business plan, we will not only create a technology strategy to support your goals, we will oversee its implementation and evolution, reporting progress to the board and adjusting strategy in line with evolving business needs.

However you chose to engage with us, you will find our breadth and depth of experience invaluable in helping your business make informed technology decisions and giving you competitive advantage.

“The joined-up and flexible approach to our system design provided by Astec, has given us real commercial advantage in a demanding market. Astec listened to how we wanted to operate and designed the system to fit and continued to develop the system as our needs evolved. Because of this, we have been able to provide a superior level of service to our members and offer a unique guest experience. We have efficient back of house operations and the key information we need to make important business decisions. Communication with members is simple and targeted at the right members at the right time. We really enjoy working with Astec and the support provided by them throughout the project development and since has been second to none.”
