Many organizations with growing dependence on technology face interesting challenges. Logical Developments’ specialty is dealing with technology. We partner with our customers to provide strategically sensible, practical recommendations that have long-term direction and value.
Our approach begins with the question, “What are the business problems you are trying to resolve?” Whether dealing with user productivity, data integration, security, word processing, document management, computer resources, financial services or taxation systems, our approach focuses attention on the business level of the problem, rather than on the technical issues that may be involved. It is our job to translate your business problems into technical solutions.
Our services deal with Information Technology on behalf of the organization by beginning with the Discovery Process, moving through Articulation, Solution Presentation and Action Planning.
We have been preparing and executing Information Management Strategies for both Local Governments and Commercial Businesses for over ten years. Generally speaking, our fees for this consulting service does not increase the final cost of a given project, meaning you don’t net out paying more – but you get more. Our organized approach highlights true costs, so that you are not surprised by the final figures for a project. We negotiate with vendors on your behalf, often covering our fees just in the net savings from the vendors. We are well known in the business, and the vendors will often start their Proposals with their very best price because of this, rather than force you through the “haggling” phase.
Importantly, your own staff can stay focused on the job at hand, and are not distracted by the management and evaluation of technology projects, or the need to educate themselves for what may be a one-time process. The savings in staff time, particularly in busy organizations, is considerable.
In over ten years of providing recommendations, we have never had a customer that has had to tear down one of our recommendations, or had a recommendation fail. The savings of never having to rebuild a solution is one hard to quantify, but one of which we are very proud. We translate business problems into technological solutions, identify the keystone issues and make problems go away.
Our unique layout for our IMS report, encapsulates the business problem as the primary focus of the topic being discussed, and presents solutions and the reasoning for change. This design allows the IMS to continue to return value for years to come, as solutions will got and go, or you may find yourself re-addressing a previous topic, whose time has come again, but the basic business problem and emphasise for change will likely still be valid.
