A Consultancy Service is available to existing clients. The consultant's service is provided in addition to, and after, the provision of a report or database contract. A client can request the services of a consultant at any time for a period of 12 months after the purchase of a report or database, however in some instances (where for example the original report is likely to be out-dated) the provision of the consultancy service is contingent on the up-dating of the original client report.

Consultants are supplied on a day rate basis, plus expenses. The consultant provided will depend on the product, market, industry or issue the client wishes to explore and will be expert in that particular field. It is essential that client take care in specifying their needs to ensure that their objectives and expectations are fully met.

How does one specify the project?

The project objectives should be both specific and tangible and be designed to produce a known and quantifiable benefit for the client. The Data Institute do not supply consultants for brain-storming or the massaging of the already held views of company management. The consultants supplied will be experienced and expert and will attend the client company to do a job of work.

It is important that clients specify exactly what objectives and goals are sought.

How it works...

On receipt of a client service request we will review the client specifications together with the existing databases the client has accessed plus the background data we hold on the client company. We can then formulate a project plan and proposal and isolate one or more consultants whom might be qualified to undertake the work. We will then produce a consultancy proposal  and costing for submission to the client.
