Value for money

Rates for contractors compare favourably to those of consultancies as you are only paying for the expertise of an individual, not hiring a firm or buying bundled software & services. Furthermore unlike many consultancies and systems integrators who often train their graduates on client projects, professional contractors must personally bring deep subject matter expertise because in a niche market, you are only as good as your last contract.

Access to delivery know-how without the strings

When engaging a contract resource, you are buying a specific skill set to complete a piece of work which requires expertise you don’t retain and typically don’t need to retain on a permanent basis. A professional contractor should bring expertise and a toolkit to enable them to hit the ground running. They should have a capability to quickly assimilate the business requirement, articulate current and future state, and lead users and stakeholders on solution design. Through build, test, implementation and training they will ensure the business is left with a legacy for lasting improvement by ensuring that grass roots users, managers and project sponsors have embraced the new processes and clearly understand their roles in making the change stick. Once complete they go.

Objective counsel

In not being commercially aligned to a software vendor or consultancy, contractors should provide impartial, objective and informed advice throughout the lifecycle of the project.
