Out of conviction
‘You cannot prioritise customer success without product and supplier-independent advice,’ says Michael Sandmeier, who uses the knowledge he acquired on the supply side to benefit customers: ‘We view ourselves as a translator and communicator between customers with their business requirements on one side and IT suppliers with their technological focus on the other. We also act as a “specialist solicitor” for our customers, providing them with objective support for quality assurance and negotiations. Our aim is to achieve optimal return on IT for each IT investment, which means optimising the benefits of an IT investment and reducing costs and risks. We assume responsibility for achieving this goal, which we view as a measurement of our success – that’s why we offer our consultancy services up to 100% dependent on success.’
