As a non-proprietary consulting firm, Heitzig Consult GmbH Austria carries out the entire ITC procurement process – both from an economic and a technical viewpoint. “This includes the analysis and benchmark phase, tender documentation, bidding negotiations and finally professional project management,” explains Helmut Browne, owner and managing director of Heitzig Consult GmbH Austria. “Our main goal for almost all of our projects is optimising ITC costs – and most of the time we manage to do this quite well.” A strong international focus is one of Browne’s key success factors.“Just recently we agreed on a close partnership with a consulting firm in the UK thanks to many years of previous project cooperation,” says Browne.

The international experience is one of several factors that make Heitzig Consult Austria so different from other smallscale consulting firms. “We also possess a very in-depth knowledge in our area of expertise, we are an independent consulter and we have a lot of practical experience. That’s what our clients value,” says Browne. “Furthermore, our team always keep up with the industry’s newest trends and developments. I think that’s something very critical in the consultancy business because it allows us to know exactly what our clients need.”

After we successfully implemented it, the project quickly became known in the industry – and several other projects followed!” www.heitzigconsult.net
