THE FAS DIFFERENCE
We deliver the full range of consulting solutions for corporate clients.
WITH ONE IMPORTANT CHANGE:
YOU ENGAGE CONSULTANTS DIRECTLY
THE STALLED PROJECT
Your software implementation project hasn’t gone well. The vendor either built something that doesn’t work or isn’t able to build it at all.
You’ve switched consultants and changed project teams. It hasn’t worked—the solution falls short.
The company has already committed to the software. There's no going back, yet the feature you want is simply not going to happen.
THE USUAL PROPOSALS
The proposals you’ve received ask you to stake everything on the vendor's reputation and experience.
You refuse to sacrifice 80% of your budget and allotted time on fact-finding and Powerpoint presentations.
You want project requirements satisfied with real accountability. You refuse to hide behind a consulting firm’s brand name when it doesn’t happen.
IN-HOUSE APP SUPPORT
You’ve completed a software/IT project and the app needs occasional changes, customizations, and fixes.
People keep leaving, poached by other teams or other firms.
with your implementation. By the time new people get up to speed and gain familiarity with your app, they’ve moved on. Meanwhile, your reputation is tied to the continuity of support.
TRADITIONAL CONSULTING FIRMS DON'T HELP
“We spent 8 months and $500K with a traditional consulting firm, and I think all we got in the end was a PowerPoint presentation. It was the most expensive PowerPoint we ever had.” - anonymous CEO
THERE'S A BETTER SOLUTION
INSTANT PROBLEM RESOLUTION
The consultants in front of you can solve your problem. They have authority to revise project scope, revisit what is delivered and solve issues, without "kicking it upstairs". There is no partnership model.
YOU CHOOSE CONSULTANTS
We never ASSIGN from a bench to drive billable hours for under-utilized consultants. You get OPTIONS to assemble the exact team you need from the open market of consulting professionals.
NO PROPRIETARY METHODOLOGIES
Instead of elaborate proprietary methodologies that drain time and budget, we are agile practitioners who solve your problems in the most direct way possible.
Consultants are a seamless part of YOUR organization. There’s no silo between "external" and "internal" team members. You get open communication that improves speed and efficiency of delivery.
RE-ENGAGE ANY CONSULTANT
Re-engage consultants or extend engagements. We never "rotate" consultants off your project against your preferences. The resulting continuity preserves your accumulated institutional knowledge.
YOUR PRIORITIES ALWAYS WIN
Our consultants provide an independent perspective with no requirement to present a centralized corporate position. They are loyal to your goals and to your project success.
Keep the Knowledge You Invest in Consultants
The next time you need the same consultant, contact him/her directly and engage under the existing vendor agreement.
Consultants become part of your extended, flexible workforce. No need to go through a gatekeeper.
