Consulting Services

1. Information Technology Advisory Services

This service is manned by consultants who are a seasoned IT specialist, including former IT executives who have operated in both the public and private sectors. Our services include but are not limited to the following:

Development of business-aligned IT Strategies

We see IT strategy as an integral part of business and we work closely with key business stakeholders to define a strategy that is realistic and demonstrates the value of IT to business. The outputs of our engagements include situation-specific roadmaps for implementation of the strategy along with issues, risks and success indicators that are associated implementations.

IT Strategy Implementation Services

Where strategies have already been defined and agreed, we advise on the practicality of implementation and assist with planning services that inform programmes for rolling them out. We use our vast knowledge to offer advice on the supply and demand of IT services and the related controls implications.

IT Governance Design and Implementation

We help organisations to reach set strategic goals by assisting them to define and implement the processes that ensure the effective and efficient use of IT. We show them how to link this to the bigger picture that is corporate governance. We use internationally recognised IT Governance frameworks to define, implement and sustain IT Governance.

Interim CIO Services

We come in where an organisation needs someone to run the strategic part of IT while they are looking for a new Chief Information Officer. We help with selection and transition processes for new CIOs. We also provide advisory services to Offices of incumbent CIOs on different IT areas where help is needed.

2. Financial Management Services

Our financial management consulting division is led by a former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) whose past experience include getting a municipal entity in the city of Johannesburg to achieve an unqualified audit report for two successive years.

The following is a sample of typical challenges faced by many municipalities or similar entities:

  • No clean audit reports due in part to lack of robust financial processes and controls.
  • Billing systems are not properly and timely updated, which results in incorrect billing information.
  • Non-payment for services is not properly managed; follow ups are difficult due to inaccurate customer data.
  • Water and electricity losses cannot be measured reliably and it becomes difficult to manage.

Based on our experience, we offer the following services to address the foregoing:

  • Assistance in optimising current Revenue management and cash management processes.
  • Assistance in selecting appropriate Revenue and financial management tools or systems.
  • Compilation of Financial Statements in terms of Generally Recognised Accounting Practice (GRAP) requirements.
  • Improvement of existing financial policies and procedures.
  • Assistance in compilation of Business Plans to access the Municipality Infrastructure Grant (MIG).
  • Creation, enhancement and maintenance of Asset Registers in terms of GRAP 17.
  • Providing advisory services in managing Accounts Payables and Accounts Receivables.
  • Improving existing Financial Planning and Budgeting.
  • Development or improvement of Supply Chain policies and processes.
  • Implementing automated billing systems in line with municipality requirements.

3. Project Portfolio Management Services

This area is led by a senior portfolio, programme and project management consultant who also doubles as a lecturer on the same subjects at a local tertiary institution. He leads a team that is highly passionate about the structured approach to solution delivery.

We employ best practice frameworks to enable collaboration between all portfolio, programme and project management stakeholders. We use our in-depth understanding of the methodology of PMBOK to deliver on all areas where the organisation's business requirements so dictate. We also draw heavily from Prince2 methodology where the organisation's requires, especially within the information technology industry.

We are also very practical in our approach and therefore do not channel our solution delivery through strictly one methodology. Where circumstances warranted, we have carefully combined different methodologies to provide the best fit for the customer.

We implement on-premise and on-demand tools that increase productivity and improve efficiencies across all project portfolios in the public sector, information technology, mining, construction, manufacturing, government departments, municipalities and state owned entities and others. These solutions enable organisations to:

  • Become agile through swift responses to changes on projects.
  • Be more productive by improving quality and eliminating waste and rework.
  • Become predictable by confidently making commitments and keeping them.
  • Be more efficient by standardising on best practices that yield repeatable success.
