IT strategy consulting & review

A properly executed IT strategy ensures that all departments are aligned, that the IT roadmap is clear, that budgets can be properly planned, and that end users can make use of efficient technology that makes their job easier to perform. The IT plan should dovetail into your wider organisational plan and should reflect the needs of all departments in your business. Our IT strategy review service will enable you to have a roots and branch review of IT and document clear needs for the short- and long-term future.

Our IT strategy review, explained

We’ll first agree your specific objectives, then carry out a detailed technical audit to understand areas of the current system that may require improvement.

We will speak to end users to understand the ‘on the ground’ view of your IT estate, and we will also spend time interviewing key stakeholders from across your organisation. This is to ensure we are clear about what needs to be achieved by IT in the coming months and years.  

Next, we will document your key suppliers, understand how all services work together, and optionally, undertake a cyber readiness review. 

With all this complete, we’ll present a detailed report and an actionable roadmap to ensure that all stakeholders understand what needs to happen next.

What our clients say

Jan Lloyd, CGMA

“Relying so heavily on our ICT, but not knowing the condition it was in, had been a constant source of worry for the school for some time. Now for the first time we would be able to understand our situation, make plans for the future and budget appropriately.”

Changing IT support providers, like changing lawyers, is not a decision any business takes lightly or frequently. The decision is fraught with numerous questions such as whether the new team will understand my business needs, will it cause teething problems, and more importantly, will the reality match the sales pitch! We took that decision to move to Ramsac in January after ten years with another provider and we have not regretted that choice for a moment. Ramsac are simply great! From the get go we have been very well supported from the front line very helpful telephone support team right up to our relationship manager. We feel that the Ramsac team are very much an integral part of us . What however has driven us to write this review is the fabulous support we have received following a cyber attack this week. Something no business wants to happen but is increasingly a sad factor of modern cyber life. The Ramsac cyber support team were superb and really gave us first class support and guidance through what was frankly a horrible experience. Thank you Dan! Denise Herrington

We have worked with Ramsac since 2015. They offer a truly winning formula. We have been delighted by their support at all three levels: our network consultant (Colin) understands our set up and is great when we need to upgrade our infrastructure; we have ready access to our account manager who has been great with supporting our growth; and the helpdesk is always so patient for the day-to-day glitches. Very professional and supportive – thank you team ramsac!

I have known Dan May and Ramsac for 5 or 6 years now. Dan is such a great guy and really helpful with strategic advice and input on all things IT. He's so approachable and doesn't baffle you with IT jargon. If you are looking to outsource your IT or you have a problem you need help with Dan is definitely the one to ask.
