Business Consulting

GFS Consulting has a strong background in delivering complex solutions in a variety of technologies. Since our consultancy formed in 2007 we have worked predominantly within the Financial Services and Public Sectors. We really focus our efforts on Business Consulting working with the business to ensure a smooth engagement with the Implementation Partner providing Quality Assurance as well as Business Consulting services. Recent projects have focused on Oracle Fusion – Cloud Services, SAP including HANA, Axiom and regulatory services such as Solvency II.

Business Consulting

We are a specialist consultancy with a background in ERP, Business Change, Business Transformation and Quality Assurance. We have found that many companies, both public and private, under estimate the importance of a robust engagement model to manage the implementation partner, this includes Quality Assurance, Change Management & Governance ensuring the solution being deployed is fit for purpose. We have recently been engaged on Business Consulting assignments where we have ensured the Business Interested have been protected and addressed ensuring the implementation partner deliver against the specification rather than relying on assumptions.

We are able to offer full time SME level consultants to support the business in soliciting requirements, assisting with complex business process flows, quality assurance against the functional specification, end to end test management including test script creation. We are able to deliver Packaged Reporting consulting i.e. suites of Reports (Financial, Procurement etc) that may be out of scope in the original fixed price implementation.

Quality Assurance: As mentioned we feel that the role of Quality Assurance is often overlooked which can have dire consequences. Ensuring that the implementation partner are on track to deliver against the requirement brief is often complex and requires significant depth of experience to be able to hold the partner to account but with a thorough QA consulting role a smoother implementation will take place leaving far less ‘wiggle room’ for the implementation partner. We know that change requests are inevitable within a large ERP Transformation Programme but they should not be signed off lightly without careful consideration against the original design brief or specification or Statement of Work
