IT Cost Saving Measures: Fave Consultant

Sector:  Private Sector.  Catering Industry  

*****  Requirements  *****

The number of clients for a small but established business was dropping in the past year despite investing in Google Ads for 3 years.  Understanding and rectifying the problem was required.

*******  Solution  *******

Advised the client about updating the website to reflect the current “COVID” situation which meant highlighting delivery methods and party food to eat at home.  Additionally advised to move the website to a solution which updates changes quickly and also saves money on additional functionality without compromising the business.  Keywords were also refreshed.

The “conversion” rate (the number of visitors to the website that make a purchase), is increasing daily.  The overall operating costs will be reduced substantially once changes have been made, which includes the additional functionality that will expand the business further with some free tools.

The renegotiation of a main software commercial contract after a substantial and unexpected increase of end users.

*****  Requirements  *****

As part of the company strategy, reduce the IT budget, which was £115 million.  

*******  Solution  *******

Working in a team, we identified various software and hardware being used throughout the company.   Consolidated and standardised (where possible) to obtain better pricing on licencing.  Replacing some products for cheaper alternatives or removing the ones which were not cost effective.

Reviewed our outsourced 3rd party IT services’ workload.  Cancelling unnecessary work and ensuring upgrades were completed to N-1 (the version prior to the latest one), resulting in less repetition over time.

Archived old data to release storage space, identified and removed applications that provided the same functionality as others being used.  

Moved some work to the cloud.  Resolved some on-going support problems to free up support staff time.

Overall, saving just under 14 % or £16 million which included absorbing increased and additional costs.
