Stripe Consulting was established in 2005, which means we have over 15 years’ experience transforming our client systems with strategic technology.
Our CTO consultancy service provides you with the strategic oversight, operational planning and board level advice of a Chief Technical Officer, without the commitment and expense of hiring a full time senior executive.
At the heart of our business is the understanding that our customers require more than just technical expertise and support. That’s why we offer a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to provide strategic oversight of your entire IT infrastructure, including any other suppliers you have in place. This ensures you have the most effective and efficient systems to support your business ambitions.
We can provide high-level strategic oversight to all your technology projects, regardless of how they are being delivered. You will receive a whole of market view when making recommendations, drawing on Stripe OLT’s extensive experience of current and emerging technologies.
We work with your IT department and accounts team to document every single item of IT spend across your business, including licensing and salaries. From this, we will identify areas in which we can help you reduce costs by taking a more strategic approach – for example duplicated costs, inefficient processes, or unnecessary spend.
We begin every project by carrying out a detailed technical discovery of client systems to ensure we have a robust understanding of the entire network and infrastructure.
Here we are able to benchmark your existing technology against best practice, allowing us to make an informed decision about the systems required to bring your organisation up to date and performing at its best.
Utilising all of the information collected during the two previous stages, and in keeping with your business strategy, our technical team design your project road map.
Prior to implementation, we rigorously test any new systems before we migrate live technology – here we work alongside your team to ensure everything is running efficiently before we launch to your wider team.
Depending on your requirements, we provide annual reviews, quarterly updates, monthly site visits and weekly calls, to guarantee your technology is optimised and business empowered.
Working in direct partnership with you means we can help keep your business up to date and making best use of the latest developments in technology. In order to achieve this, our consultants maintain a set of essential client comms:
