​In addition to fixed-price project services built around specific deliverables, Ostratto is available on an ad-hoc basis to provide you with access to highly-trained, technical and non-technical resources. Unlike our other services where we work with you to deliver a planned scope of work, our IT Consultancy service allows you to access subject matter experts as you need them, leaning on our capability to supplement your own.

The service is ideal for covering shortfalls of resource within your own team, including Support Teams, Project Implementation Engineers or Project Managers. It’s also perfect for smaller pieces of work where a defined set of deliverables or outcomes are unnecessary.

With over a decade of knowledge across a wide range of the technology industry, you can be certain that Ostratto will enable your business with our consultation services.

Why would you need a Technical Consultant?

An Outside Eye
You know how sometimes when you’re dealing with an issue in your life, you turn to friends and family for their opinions? Businesses like yours often need this too, especially when making tough decisions. It's common that clients have a perspective on how to solve the problem they are facing but want to make sure that what they’re thinking is correct (or that they aren’t so close to the challenge that they’re missing the obvious answer). So, they turn to our consultancy to come in and provide their expertise.

Because consultants often work with many different companies and may have worked through this problem in the past with someone else, they can really provide a perspective based on what they’ve seen work (or not) before. And given this experience, they can often bring new and innovative ideas or possible challenges to the table that clients probably wouldn’t have been able to see on their own.
Extra horsepower
Sometimes the problems companies need solving are really important, but they don’t necessarily have the manpower to focus on them. Companies still have to focus on their day-to-day operations after all, and new projects typically require reprioritising employees’ core job responsibilities. But hiring new employees to fill these gaps doesn’t always make sense either, seeing as many of these projects are one-offs. Whether it’s a cost reduction program requiring a dedicated team of six for a year or even a post-merger integration that requires a team of 100 for a month, clients might struggle to get the teams in place to do this critical work.

In instances like this, consultants basically serve as temporary, highly skilled employees. We’re not full-time employees of the company, so it is often cheaper to use us than hire someone new. Because we switch around companies often, we’re used to the fast learning curve, and onboarding us is easier. And, by using consultants, companies don’t have to pull their employees away from their actual jobs.
Specialised Skills

Perhaps the most common reason that companies hire consultants is to gain access to a specialised skill set that might not exist in house. By engaging a consulting firm, you get access to a group of professionals that has skills ranging from web design to phone system installations. These highly specialised people would not only be expensive to hire for, but the company might not have enough work to keep said employees busy year round. But, thanks to our consultants, companies can bring in that skill set on demand when they need it.

Our consultancy services provide you with the strategic oversight, operational planning and technical advice, without the commitment and expense of hiring a full time consultant.
