Navigating Budget Planning Season: How an IT Advisor Can Be Your Financial Compass

The saying “The future belongs to those who plan for it today” has gained profound relevance, particularly during the final months of each year.   Get ready because budget season has arrived, and one of the most challenging responsibilities is finding ways to cut costs!  In this era of constant change, partnering with seasoned IT advisors isn’t just an option; it’s a necessity not only to survive but to thrive in the year ahead.

Technology Navigation’s role is to assist in tackling various scenarios for our clients.   Centering on where costs can be minimized and understanding the corresponding impacts, all aimed at achieving or exceeding objectives.  We significantly decrease the time and effort required for budget planning.

Drawing from over two centuries of combined industry expertise and an extensive portfolio of 800+ suppliers, we offer our clients realistic market cost assessments for current, competitive, and future solutions.

This is done by providing:

  • Market Research: Presenting current market research, supplier/technology trends and analysist reports for solutions. This aids in understanding the direction of each technology vertical and associated trajectory.
  • Supplier Quotes: Acquiring quotes from suppliers across our eight technology-focused sectors (see below). These quotes play a pivotal role in generating precise cost estimates. We collaborate with both your existing and rival suppliers to provide “real world” figures.
  • Project Scope Definition:  Assisting in defining a rational scope for each project requiring budget allocation.  Documenting the objectives, positive outcomes, and conditions of each undertaking.
  • Labor Costs:  Identifying the labor expenditures tied to the project and associated deployment. Factor in the time commitments of IT personnel, contractors, or consultants who will be engaged in the process.

In summary, remove uncertainty during your budget season without needing direct communication with suppliers.  We are here to help identify your cost-reduction opportunities and formulate solutions and strategies. Here are all the technology verticals in which we are experts:
