The City of Budapest Transit Authority had developed a business case to introduce electronic ticketing but radical changes to its own structure and operations meant that an urgent review of the continuing robustness of the case was needed. ALCO Consulting carried out a thorough expert review and challenge, providing a report that enabled the city to move forward.
The success of any business activity is dependent on getting the strategy right from the outset. Where businesses are dependent on technologies and specifically new and emergent technologies, getting the strategy right and ensuring that the business continues to function in a technically sustainable environment can be a complex and daunting task.
ALCO Consulting specialises in advising our clients on strategic direction and road mapping to ensure that they move forward with confidence, focused on clear and achievable objectives. We work with our clients to focus on the development of practical and implementable policies that provide viability, sustainability and effectiveness within our client’s overall strategic direction.
It is key to ensure that resulting policies meet the requirements of all stakeholders. Our experienced team will ensure that full stakeholder buy-in is achieved and maintained throughout strategic development and will provide full support to manage the non-technical hurdles of agreed governance, business rules, the business case and the division of budget across stakeholders.
As required, we will provide assurance around the security environment, interface specifications and KPI requirements, all of which, we believe must precede any commitment to a technical solution if a project is to be successfully implemented on-time and on-budget.
In a wider context, our team is skilled and experienced in working across domains, jurisdictions and market segments. This enables us to take new concepts and models and relevant service providers from one market sector and introduce these to another, filling any gaps in the value chain. This can have great value in creating synergy among stakeholders from different market sectors, widening horizons, expanding opportunities and ultimately benefitting our clients and their customers.
ALCO Consulting has a wealth of practical experience in all these areas and best supporting our clients. For further details and references, please contact any member of the ALCO Consulting team.
I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for the great work ALCO Consulting undertook with the Post Office recently to enable us to understand the opportunities within the Transport Sector. You and your team clearly demonstrated the in-depth knowledge you have of this sector, and the fact that Senior Level Advisors and Project Managers within your team were used to deliver the Proposal, made a difference to the final delivery. We would have no hesitation in using yourself and your company again and would indeed recommend you to other organisations.
