Information technology is now an essential part of business strategy. All key players participating in your business (employees, customers, suppliers, media, government...) rely on your IT infrastructure like on a nervous system. We know IT. We know how people and IT interact. Computer consulting and people consulting: both are our way of life. Our IT consultants are in this industry since 1990. We know what works and what is hype. It's a pleasure for us to share our expertise and knowledge with you.
Our ICT consultants are business managers. We think it is a requirement to quantify the Return On Investment (ROI) and value of IT investments, and the impact on the entire business. We also think it is important to communicate the real value of IT to the people using it, in plain English, no geek speak.
If you are a business manager interested in increasing profits and lowering costs, in doing more with less, we can help you with your IT strategy and tactic. If you are an IT manager interested in maximizing the impact of IT on your business performance, and to show your management how your IT strategy improves the company's value: we can help you.
E-business. Consulting. Most hyped terms. Fortunately, e-business and consulting both survive the hype. It's more than e-commerce, much more. What is e-business? There is more than one definition of e-business, but essentially it's about the basics of how future companies will work, survive and evolve in the business world. The famous quote remains true: 'e-business or no business'. All businesses will be e-businesses eventually, making the 'e' superfluous. You better rely on independent e-business consultants-partners who's advice is not 'biased' toward some products, suppliers or service providers. We do not resell third party products or services. We advise and implement successful e-business strategies. We can work with your existing partners. We can advise you about new partners. You can trust us to pursue only your best interests, without any hidden agenda.
Intellectual Capital, Knowledge Management and Business Intelligence are the main resources for success in future business worlds. Working harder is not enough. Working smarter is necessary. How do you acquire it? How do you keep it? How do you breed it? We can help you.
Strategic Sourcing, Supply Chain Management, e-Procurement
Strategic Sourcing, e-procurement and supply chain management can significantly reduce costs and improve bottom line results. We can help your company improve the purchasing business processes and define a new performing sourcing strategy. By combining new strategic sourcing strategies with e-procurement and supply chain management, your company will dramatically improve bottom line results and business performance, thanks to the successful integration of people, solutions and technologies like telecommunications, information technology systems, computer hardware and computer software, wireless network solutions, VPN networking services and Web Services. It will be a pleasure for to share our knowledge with you.
Business Process Outsourcing
Business process outsourcing often starts with technical IT outsourcing. The growing complexity of IT and the difficulty to find and retain trained IT staff are key elements in the priority given to technical IT outsourcing. However attractive technical IT outsourcing is, it remains a very important decision with many complex aspects. Without an independent trusted IT consultant with experience in both business management and technology, some outsourcing experiences ended in disasters. Brainwin provides IT outsourcing consulting expertise you can rely on.
More importantly, IT management is not the core business of most enterprises. Real IT management requires a fundamental understanding of both business and technology, and a long experience. Such CIO's are near impossible to find, and extremely expensive. Can your company find one fast enough? Even if your company can find one, is your company big enough to need his expensive services full time over a longer period? In most cases, IT management outsourcing is much more flexible and cost effective for most companies. Let's talk about it!
Some companies feel uncomfortable implementing a full business process outsourcing strategy. Partial IT outsourcing, or IT co-sourcing, may offer a solution, temporary or final. It can provide a first step to a full IT outsourcing service, but first keep the full business process in-house, and delegate some tasks to outsourcing service providers. Whether technical IT outsourcing or IT management outsourcing, a flexible partnership with an external outsourcing firm has proven to be a very efficient and cost effective strategy.
IT co-sourcing is a good formula. A well-balanced equilibrium keeps in-house an important feeling of being in control, but provides many of the advantages offered by the integration of IT outsourcing and consulting solutions.
E-business process outsourcing is an obvious choice. Even for large enterprises, it is not possible to keep up with all the changes influencing e-business management. The lack of trained resources and faster time to market pressure accelerate this evolution. Cost reductions and higher quality results are free bonuses granted by an outsourcing strategy. But what e-business outsourcing services do we provide?
Full website design, redesign or refining of you company web site. Creating a web site that is more than a simple online business card or catalogue: a real e-business tool contributing to your corporation's profit and its partners.
website marketing and web promotion
Without marketing and internet marketing, no e-business strategy can be successful. Creating a website presence is a first step in a succession of actions. Website marketing and website promotion should be essential parts of your e-business management strategy. The worldwide scale of internet access, and it's full time availability are two of the most powerful strengths of a website. No other media combines both advantages, not even television: always available, all over the world. Internet marketing and web site promotion are worth it!
search engine optimization
Why do you need search engine optimization? As we write this down, there are more than 5 billion web pages online. 2 billion web pages are indexed by the internet search engines and compete for visitor's attention. 75% of web sites are first found through the use of search engines like Google. The first ten to thirty web sites shown by the search engines as search results get 98% of the visitor's attention. Many words generate more than a 30 million searches per month. Don't let this targeted traffic run away to your competitors! Thanks to professional search engine optimization, many targeted visitors looking for your services or products could become visitors or customers of your web site! But search engine optimization is complex. Search engines keep their algorithms and rules secret to avoid manipulations, and change them continuously. If you want results, your web site should be present on page one, two or three of the search engine results. This is why search engine optimization is best executed by a professional team. We provide this expertise and prove our results with facts. Let us help you achieve amazing search engine positioning!
viral marketing and e-mail marketing
Internet reacts fast. Very fast. Viral marketing techniques can deploy very effective results in both a massive and quick way. We have the resources and the network marketing tools to get your message to the market. E-mail marketing is another very effective tool. We use multimedia tools and define a carefully targeted market to avoid spamming your prospects or customers. We know how e-mail marketing can be one of your best tools!
Chances are that you are not providing web services yet. But as your e-business activity is growing, web services will become an easy and cost effective way to interact with your customers, and to sell. Web services however, are new. They should be professionally set-up. Outsourcing to Brainwin provides you immediate access to our experience and expertise.
Do you think management capital is a major asset of your company? We think so. Your company's resources in management and leadership define your business future. How do you breed young management talent? How do you improve young management skills? Most employees execute many management tasks without training in any basic management skills. Some succeed, most fail at executing flawlessly. Exclusively acquiring or hiring external experienced managers is impossible. All successful companies, without exception, are successful by continuously improving the management skills of their young internal staff. A clearly defined management training strategy breeds and trains young managers with new ideas and the management skills required to be successful. It is clear the greatest resource for intellectual capital is your internal staff, and our management training courses provide the management skills it needs.
Brainwin provides custom made basic management training courses covering various important management skills: project management, self-management, time management and knowledge management. Brainwin's management consultants and trainers are experienced in both management and training. It will be our pleasure to help you.
Company employees provide great added value, but are very costly. In Belgium, the average company cost of a skilled employee is 100.000 Euros yearly! Working two hundred days per year, and seven hours each day, the hourly employee cost is more than 70 Euro. Improving and maximizing productivity and efficiency is therefore an absolute requirement for survival.
Many employees use computers during more than 6 hours a day. It is now by far the most used productivity tool in most companies. There is no need for employees to become computer experts, but optimizing each computing minute spent at work is a necessity. Learning how to use efficiently and securely computer hardware, computer software, computer networking infrastructure and internet access is essential.
Brainwin provides basic computer training, computer security training, network security training, it training, internet training and e-business training services. All improve productivity, efficiency, knowledge and motivation. An old quote says: 'information is power'. We think knowledge and know-how are empowering! Don't you?
Complementing our e-business outsourcing services, our e-business training services should become an essential part of your e-business strategy. Because it is important that your teams learn the power, the tools and the rules of e-business. They will include e-business solutions in their early strategy and concepts of new or existing services and products. The way it should be.
Outsourcing web design was an easy decision for most e-business managers. Later on, text and graphics modifications may be requested. Important modifications regarding coding or design of the website should be outsourced to the trusted website designer. For smaller text or images modifications however, internal execution may provide a faster and more efficient methodology. Training in web site design basics, copywriting and image manipulation for employees can be a very effective solution. Brainwin provides a basic training in website design for individuals of groups, in our facilities or at your business location.
web site promotion
E-business will be present in all aspects of a successful company. Therefore, it is important your teams get internet training to understand how website promotion works, and how web marketing can reinforce their internet marketing power. Internet training of your sales and marketing teams in website promotion provides new ideas and actions. We believe in the partnerships based on knowledge sharing with our customers.
search engine optimization
A successful search engine optimization strategy is a complex but highly effective way of web positioning your products and services in the forefront of the market place. It is therefore important your internal team and your web partners learn the basics about search engine optimization. Our e-business training sessions can guide and update your teams.
viral marketing and e-mail marketing
Not all actions request a large scale planning and execution. There will be situations where it can be cost effective or faster to execute small-scale actions yourself. During our viral marketing and e-mail marketing training sessions, our professionals will share with your teams knowledge, tips and tricks. We think sharing knowledge is what partners are for, don't you?
