How can you future proof your consultancy?

Consultancy is a client driven industry. As clients’ needs transition, consultancy offerings must transition with them.

Over the last 10 years, consultancies have seen their clients adapt their business models to respond to changes in legislation, or developments in technology and digital. The way consultancies respond to and manage these demands, whilst still maintaining margins and increasing profitability, can make all the difference.

Current and coming trends in the industry include:

    • A hybrid workforce
    • More transparent pricing structure
    • Bespoke assets and products

RTI Health Solutions (RTI-HS), a business unit of RTI International, provides biopharmaceutical companies research and consulting services. RTI-HS realized that managing data in multiple systems that were not designed to meet its specific project-based needs was slowing down processes and impacting project deliverables.

Company leadership wanted one integrated system that would give greater control over data, speed up the proposal process and provide access to real-time project information. RTI-HS turned to Deltek, a project-based ERP tool specifically designed for professional services firms, for a userfriendly solution that could be customized to match its business processes and make it easier to manage its business in one place.

Growing environmental consulting firm empowers Project Managers, reduces DSO and increases efficiency by 50% using Deltek Vision.

 

Starting as a small office, SWCA recently celebrated its 30-year anniversary with growth to over 750 employees across more than 20 offices. But even though the firm experienced an average of 12% growth a year—despite the current economic downturn—SWCA still experienced some internal challenges when it came to project management and financial management.
Because the company had to rely on multiple, stand-alone systems, information was not getting into the hands of the people who needed it. “As the business was growing, we found that our data was being delivered to the finance and accounting teams, but not to the project managers,” said Michael Truax, Director of IT for SWCA. “PMs had a hard time wrapping their minds around the data, because it was in two separate systems with two completely different databases.

Also, most of our tools were homegrown, so besides not having a consistent feel, it would take weeks of back and
forth to report on how projects were doing.”

SWCA knew what it needed to remove its project management obstacles: a solution that connected the entire organization around its projects that was delivered on a single, secure system and provided accurate, reliable data in real-time as well as unlimited visibility for project managers into the health and status of its projects.
