“IT Experts Exchange is the ideal forum for gaining access to a network of IT specialists to help supplement our own teams on consulting projects.  The calibre of expertise and the speed of accessibility which the Exchange offers are just two of the key reasons why we know we can always depend on it.”

Helen Ricardo, Marketing Manager, Alsbridge


“IT Experts Exchange supersedes the consulting “one stop shop” by bringing experts in every aspect of IT together with clients who have very specific needs. CIOs often struggle to find executive development organisations that “get” IT professionals, so we’re delighted both to receive exposure to those who don’t yet know us and to be able to work with proven experts who can deliver in areas where we cannot.”

Brinley Platts Chairman and Andy Foster COO, CIODevelopment

“GlassHouse is very much committed to the concept of “IT Experts” since it brings to bear a network of potential customers for both parties otherwise unavailable. The management has demonstrated clear value in enabling real business through its high level relationships. We have already generated success for both our organisations and look forward to fostering a mutually beneficial relationship moving forward.”

Matthew Wiltshire, General Manager, GlassHouse Technologies (UK) Ltd.


“We live in a connected world. Clients would rather work with people they know or come through their trusted sources. At the same time, boutique consulting organisations such as Qedis depend on referrals and relationships to win new business. The idea of IT Experts Exchange is a great way of bringing together trusted relationships.”

Paramjit Uppal, Managing Director, Qedis

“IT Experts Exchange brings together experienced, high calibre IT professionals with a range of industry backgrounds.  As an independent consultant I relish the opportunity to exchange experiences and best practice with fellow consultants.  From the client point of view, I have introduced IT Experts Exchange to an existing client of mine who was most impressed with the IT Experts Exchange approach and in particular the calibre of the consultants.” 


Tim Brister, Independent Consultant

 

 

“After many years in the ‘cut and thrust’ of one of the major consulting firms, my focus as an independent consultant is on finding interesting, value-adding work to do with interesting clients. Connecting my own network to the IT Experts Exchange’s high quality network will increase my chances of finding this work – or new clients finding me!”

“The challenge in the independent market is making the whole more than the sum of the parts. IT Experts Exchange works for both its members and its clients.  As a member I can collaborate with fellow members, share experiences and grow professionally. The deal for clients is the opportunity to source recommended individuals and teams quickly and flexibly. Clients aren’t paying for inexperienced, highly leveraged teams and neither are they gambling on word of mouth recommendations. They get genuine experts with proven track records.”


Allan Clayton, Independent Consultant

 

 

“Most IT Professionals do not make the most of the contacts they have. They are usually too busy delivering the services they have been contracted to deliver to do anything else. IT Experts Exchange provides a valuable resource enabling individuals to use the marketing expertise within the Exchange to develop their contacts and generate work for both themselves and other IT professionals. Clients also benefit from having a ‘known quantity’ from which to procure resources. This significantly decreases the risk of inappropriate resourcing which is often the case when using the typical recruitment agency approach.”

“The value to clients is that they know they are getting access to companies who have been carefully selected and individuals who have been chosen because they are seasoned, experienced and come highly recommended. The value to the individual members is that you get involved with peers who have achieved a similar level in their own discipline and on varied and interesting projects with a range of customers.” 


Roy Isbell, Independent Consultant

 

 

“Having been a CIO, COO, Consultant and Programme Director, I know the challenges of finding good technology companies or individual experts. There are many skilled and experienced people in the marketplace – the challenge is findings someone quickly who comes with the rights skills, good references and at an affordable price. The IT Experts Exchange allows buyers of IT services to find both companies and individuals that are recommended and tested as experts in their field. There are clear benefits for the expert members too. As part of a dedicated network of like-minded IT professionals, they have a direct route to connect to clients and to deliver quality services and solutions in what is often viewed as a commodity/value-added market.”

“In a world of integrated IT services providers, the adviser role has been abandoned. It is being picked up by new, entrepreneurial consulting firms. These firms need access to the full range of skills so they can ‘face off’ with the major firms on behalf of clients. The IT Experts Exchange is an innovative and cost effective way of tapping into sources of these skills.”


Mark Otway, Chairman, Alsbridge

 

 

“For the IT Executive, I think that IT Experts Exchange is a great idea because it enables them to access the depth of knowledge contained in specialist firms while achieving the breadth of capability of a large consultancy.  For the member firms, it allows us to come together to deploy our expertise with other firms and so achieve more than the sum of the parts.”

Sumit Ray, Independent Consultant

 

 

“The stringent entry requirements of the IT Experts Exchange ensures that I can confidently introduce other members to my clients. I provide a niche service and introductions by other members will prove invaluable in growing my client base.”
