Why use consulting services?

The benefits of using consulting services include

Access to a diversity of ideas from experiences outside your organisation. A service provider like Velvet Systems has a broad view of the local market from working with many similar clients, and we know what solutions work.

Scalability, and ease of termination when no longer needed.

Access to proven templates and processes – for example our information technology audit approach and checklists have been used in dozens of clients.

A consulting assignment is often lower cost than hiring and training a new employee, particularly if the need is short-to-medium term.

Access to specialised technical knowledge that isn’t available in your organisation. Velvet Systems has specialists in everything from cloud migration to hyperconverged infrastructure to project management to managed print services (and everything in between).

Speed of ramp-up and results – often happening much faster than hiring a full-time employee.

Providing blunt and honest feedback and opinions, untainted by “rose coloured organisational glasses”.

Because they are independent, objective, and without organisational baggage an external consultant can also be an effective change agent.
