We have worked hard to create a business environment that attracts
and retains a high level of expertise and experience and our aggressive
training schedule ensures that our technicians and consultants are
continually at the leading edge of emerging technologies. It ensures
that our staff remain intellectually and technically sharp and fresh,
not burned out, and it is a major reason why our staff turnover is
less than 10% far lower than most similar companies around
Our goal at Independent
Consulting Solutions has been to create a world-class Professional
Services company offering business and technical solutions
better than, and certainly equal to, the major consulting
players around the globe. We've done that by establishing
a team of multi-certified, world-class, highly experienced
technical and business gurus capable of solving
the most difficult operational problems.
We believe no company in Bermuda can provide our combination of
both objective consulting and expert implementation. We live and
die by our reputation for independence, objectivity and knowledge.
Those are the reasons key decision makers come to Independent Consulting
Solutions. They trust us.
We dont have allegiance or exclusivity with one particular
manufacturer or vendor. We recommend whats best for the customer
for their particular business, based on listening carefully to their
challenges and goals. Very few large consulting companies can boast
the deep-nested technical skills that we possess in the best products
offered by Microsoft, Novell, Cisco, Lotus, Check Point, Nokia,
and VeriSign. And because we measure our success by global yardsticks,
not just those of Bermuda, Independent Consulting Solutions is increasingly
asked to work on projects overseas.
Knowledge is our product and people come to us for both our technical
knowledge and our business experience. We have built up knowledge
in vertical markets like banking, reinsurance, retail, utilities
and shipping which is not something thats easy to brand
or sell but when were on-site, its practical
knowledge that our customers greatly appreciate.
We spend a lot of time with CEOs and CIOs, helping them rationalize
the business reasons for their technology plans. Because of our
wide operational experience, we can suggest methods and techniques
from other industries that can make a difference to customers in
We believe in the power of relationships, both with our customers
and our vendors. One of the reasons our company grows organically
at about 25% per year is because of the relationships we have built
up over many years. It is extremely rare for us to lose a customer.
And our close relationships with key people in companies like Microsoft
means we have a direct channel to them that we can leverage and
bring directly to our customers.
At Independent Consulting Solutions we see a big future in wireless
and believe that telecommunications and application development,
particularly for bandwidth-hungry applications, are going to be
very successful. We believe that a trend will emerge with bandwidth
in the same way that Microsoft built applications to take advantage
of ever-accelerating microprocessor power.
We also believe theres a natural maturing of the market in
Bermuda. The infrastructure is largely in place and at the leading
edge were seeing the focus shift towards application development
and making the technology do more. Ninety per cent of businesses
are stuck in a maintenance mode where they can barely keep up with
technology. We move our customers past that with a three-year plan,
so that the maintenance problems go away and they can spend their
money and resources on developing applications and systems that
release the power of the network or the individual or both
and really make their businesses fly.
At Independent Consulting Solutions were working to build
an application development brand that associates technical excellence
and objectivity with the core values were already known for
in infrastructure and security.
It builds another compelling case for people to come to Independent
