Information Management Strategy
A clear Information Management Strategy empowers your team to easily retrieve and save information whilst keeping your organisation secure.
We provide support across a range of strategic projects that typically fall into three areas:
An assessment of an organisations IT health or assisting in preparing for rapid change (i.e. COVID impact on hybrid working).
A strategy focusing on key capabilities that have broad impact; like selecting a primary application such as a case management or finance system.
Detailed assessment of all key ISO standards across organisational strategic pillars.
The difference in our approach is our focus on people, engaging with staff and understanding customers to ensure recommendations meet their needs.
