The Service

Leading Resolutions cost transparency process delivers a qualified view of your cost base, delivering informed current market comparisons to underpin any cost management activity.

We enable you to safely reduce your costs while effectively collaborating with key stakeholders, investing the time to truly understand your business needs, and communicating the cost down strategy.

How We Deliver

Our structured approach categorises IT spend across key business services capturing the internal cost model at a level of granularity that enables greater understanding of the drivers and construct of core services and IT outflows. This clarity of data identifies opportunities for the IT team to optimise IT run costs and potentially divert investment for innovation.

As part of this service, we carry out independent diagnostics and benchmarking on specific areas such as telephony, network and cloud in order to deliver factual information on costs and spending.

Investing this time at the outset to understand the true costings and make-up of the IT landscape ensures that future spend is directed into those projects that deliver the most return on investment.

The output generated during this process supports the communication of the cost down strategy to key business managers and has proven to encourage them to engage and align with the process of employing the most cost-effective technology to deliver the goals and objectives of the business.

We secure the leading experts in our field and with more than 20 years of success in employing the best people and delivering change in every wave of tech, we have the resources and knowledge to assess your digital transformation requirements skilfully and fairly as an external adviser.
