Transforming Business & Aligning IT

BLUE Profile began as a pure IT Consultancy in 1997 and continues to offer IT Consulting and Professional Services across the ever-changing technology landscape.

We work hard to understand the individual needs of all our customers, delivering specially tailored solutions to meet and exceed their business expectations.

We continually review the current IT landscape and work with several key partners and without spreading ourselves too thin, ensuring the partners we work with are able to support us and more importantly, you and ensure that our solutions provide positive business outcomes and importantly reduce both risk and cost.

As an independent IT consultancy, we offer unbiased and impartial advice to small and medium businesses across regions such Leicester, Northampton, Birmingham, Barnsley and London. Several customers work with us purely to vet and review IT Solutions recommended and provided by incumbent IT Partners, ensuring that any solution is right for the business and fit for purpose.

Our Consulting Approach follows a core methodology now dubbed DDIM (Discover, Design, Implement & Manage), which enables us to ensure every solution/service suits your business needs, not ours! This enables to ensure that each solution goes through the same core process of:

  • Discover – Understand your needs and identify the right solutions
  • Design – Working with you, we need to ensure that the right solution is designed to meet your business needs and that it resolves any potential issues currently being faced
  • Implement – Ensure that the solution can be implemented on time, with the right support and with as little disruption as possible
  • Manage – Determine the process to manage the project and the solution and ensure all teams are continually updated

Describe your problem

We begin with sitting down with you to really understand how your business works. We’ll ask all the right questions, including some you may not have previously considered, and because we don’t use jargon we’ll explain everything in a way you’ll find easy to understand. Once we’ve established your key requirements we’ll then begin the process of a careful and practical investigation of your entire network, quickly and explaining determining the next steps.

We’ll also look at any other pain points and identify areas that might demand urgent attention and a quick resolution, immediately devising practical strategies and suggesting appropriate upgrades. We’ll handle everything from detecting and filling holes in your network’s security to creating shortcuts to enhance your company’s performance, putting together a successful action plan in no time.

Our team discovers exactly what your requirements are, and instinctively know what sort of solution will best serve your business- which brings us to the next pertinent stage of our methodology.

Help and advice

Armed with detailed analyses of your requirements we can then brainstorm a comprehensive action plan which will tackle your specific needs/challenges.

Our team of highly trained and accredited professionals are able to draw from a broad base of design knowledge and past successes to provide you with holistic and practical solutions.  Like every other stage of the process, we’ll consult with you throughout so you’ll always know exactly what to expect and when.

We always keep your requirements and budget in mind.

Solution Delivery

The most hands-on phase of our consultation, the Implementation phase combines the skills and knowledge of our highly qualified project managers, site supervisors and installation technicians.

We insist that all projects are handled with the highest levels of competency and professionalism and with full collaboration with you and your team. This commitment to totally transparent communication means you’ll never be left wondering what’s happening and when. We can also be shadowed or shadow your staff to assist with any requirements for knowledge transfer.

You can be assured of timely, successful delivery with no unnecessary problems, delays or expense (unless unforeseen), but that’s just the beginning!
