UK NICHE CONSULTANCY OF THE YEAR (PROJECT MANAGEMENT), MAYER CONSULTING LIMITED

What does Mayer Consulting Limited offer the European business world? In a nutshell, we provide pragmatic tailored project management consultancy to support clients through their journey to the cloud. In addition, we provide cloud based solutions to businesses.

The three Cs

We started the business as we identified a gap in the market for a provider of solutions offering 'clean consultancy' regardless of business size. That is consultancy not tied to a product or vendor. Alongside we offer project and programme management implementation services with a strong focus on after care.

Communication – When onsite I urge our consultants to almost over communicate with their stakeholders, and to communicate honestly - to ensure that there are never any surprises for stakeholders

From a technology perspective, it is our cloud enablement experience and bespoke cloud solutions which are unique. From a consultancy perspective, it is our ability to create bespoke solutions for all our clients. SME clients value our large corporate experience. Our FTSE clients value the insight and agility that our consultants bring from the SME space. It is this ability to bridge the technology/business and SME/ Enterprise gaps that makes us unique. Why is a Cloud offering so important to businesses?

When looking at cloud services most are offered ‘ever green’ meaning that the solution is constantly updated and these updates are made available to subscribers on a periodic basis as part of their subscription. An obvious example of this is Microsoft’s Office 365 offering.

The on-demand model afforded by the cloud allows business either to offer additional office space for staff or a reduced need for office. From the financial point of view cloud services and servers work generally on a consumption model meaning that you only need to pay for what you need. How do you ensure your clients keep up with the ever-changing developments in technology?

Consultation – Acknowledge that you will not always know the answer to all the questions being asked of you. We have a strong peer knowledge network that is regularly tapped into by consultants. Underpinning this is…. Collaboration – We have an excellent collaboration environment – build on Microsoft cloud technologies – that enables consultants to reach out in real time to domain experts. What 3 priorities do you think all business should seriously consider? 1. Risk management and business continuity. It is a foolhardy CEO who believes 'it won't happen to me’ 2. Simplifying technology needs – asking what do we really need to help us deliver a better service/product and how can we work smarter with less 3. Investing in an audit of all systems and processes. If nothing else the company will learn something they didn't know about their business but most likely the company will understand what needs to improve about the business
