Arc provides consultancy and advisory services to a number of organisations, many of whom have large IT departments or have outsourced to well known companies. These organisations come to Arc for quite varied reasons and at different times in their project life-cycle.
Typical reasons that Arc Consultancy is so valued is because organisations want truly independent analysis of an issue, or they need expertise that is deeper and more experienced than their own generalists, and in many many cases it is to obtain faster production of solutions than their internal departments can delivery. Often clients are perfectly happy with their existing suppliers, but a fresh perspective and bringing in people with wider experience ensures that a project runs smoothly.
Arc also provides consultancy services to organisations that do not have in-house teams who would like independent help delivering a project or to manage the consultants and suppliers effectively.
Arc consultancy provides powerful and deep experience for running IT procurements, researching options and making technology recommendations before projects are even started, before budgets are committed, and before suppliers start to become too involved. This can provide significant cost savings as bidders are not charging you for fact finding and for translating high-level business requirements into specifications that they can actually deliver or bid on.
Arc can provide alternative options and knowledge gained from years of projects and different organisations. In effect Arc provides you with years of lessons learned before you even start.
