Approved Systems Consultancy Services covers numerous areas – From Basic IT Support for Professional Businesses to overseeing a Project during its development process.

Approved Systems have a number of Professional IT Service Consultants.

Some may already be actively enagged with projects and are subject to availability. These consultants can be made free to provide support for you during these times but are first be placed on a monthly retainer fee. This is to allow a number of hours per month put aside for you so they can give a proper indicative available hours to their current active clients and long term projects

For example,
Neil Symons, one of our main consultants may be enagaged to work with 3x Enterprise level companies for 15 hours per week each.This produces 45 hours work allocated to Neil and each of these clients want as much time from Neil as possible. If you require an hour or two of his time for support as you requested him exclusivley, this may be arranged via a booking, He will need to re-shuffle his hours of time with these companies and work a little extra overtime to cover his contractual agreement. This is not an ideal long term solution.

To be able to utilize this consultant you will be required to sign a retainer agreement.
