Through a portfolio of specialist technical advisory, project management and consultancy services, we bring together bespoke Professional Services engagements across a number of Business Verticals
We are big enough to deliver and small enough to care with our breadth of expertise that enable us to lead and manage successful Professional Service Engagements on your behalf.
We work with companies to help them confidently make technology-related decisions, ensuring their IT and operating models are agile and effective. Clients benefit from our extensive industry knowledge and rigorous focus on their strategic objectives, equipping them to cut through the latest technology and trends to not only meet pressing objectives, but also create enduring results. Our services deliver real, tangible results and, in some instances, are non-chargeable.
Crestwave Solutions work with clients and partners in consolidation, designing and implementing IT Infrastructure – IT, Audio Visual, Physical Security, Structured Cabling and Critical Systems from a new physical design of infrastructure, through to a complete physical refresh of existing estate. We listen to our clients’ business and IT requirements before designing and implementing a solution.
We have developed a global service for those Financial institutions that are looking to gain a clear competitive but cost effective edge. Technology has now developed to the point where the user requirements can and should be more effectively defined and managed. This is possible by working with us to meet, interview, and so ascertain exactly what your users need.
For a clear understanding of the current state of your business’s technology, we can fully assess your existing estate and hardware. Our comprehensive report will benchmark your current expenditure on telecoms, trader voice systems, market data and datacentre capex and opex, with recommendations on how to improve efficiencies and enhance quality and reliability, while streamlining costs.
Our approach is impartial, hands-on and specialist to meet your project’s scope. We gather the facts, co-ordinate the interest and present you with the information to base your decision upon. We can then act on your instructions and implement the solution. We are not tied to any specific provider, so you get the solution that is best matched to your current and future business needs.
A well-written RFP accurately conveys the full scope of the work desired, which enables Crestwave Solutions to address the project precisely and to make realistic cost estimates, technical and service evaluations across our 3 practiced areas. In addition, the wording of an RFI / RFP enables principals of our clients to recognise whether respondees will be a serious contender for the project, thereby sparing our clients the expense and time wasted of a poor proposal. Crestwave Solutions will work with our clients to capture all the elements of the project and deliver a written RFI / RFP and working alongside our clients, facilitating the process through to presentation and selection, if required.
Whether you are building your own facility, wish to procure a CoLo, require strategic advice, need multi-disciplinary services or require development monitoring, peer review or project status checks we are here to help.
We adopt the Lead Consultant role alongside the client and procure design teams on your behalf and carry out full and thorough project definition. Our in depth knowledge of traditionally constructed, multi-storey, and modular facilities allow us to provide clients with options that enhance the business case from cost, value, time, efficiency and risk perspectives.
Excellence in design is of little merit without co-ordination, integration, time management and financial management and our controlling work stages to build-in value and drive-out risk. We focus on the complete lifecycle of the building and systems to help you make informed decisions that include impacts on staffing levels and operating costs.
Capacity flexibility, net to gross ratios, load steps, security layers, energy efficiency, sustainability, resilience, redundancy and maintenance are at the forefront of our management activity. This enables us to constantly challenge design norms to lock-in the required benefits.
We have rigorous contractor/supplier selection processes to ensure that the right partners are selected with a focus on teamwork, experience, quality, cost, testing and commissioning.
Scoping construction and supplier packages and performing gap analysis to achieve cost, programme and quality certainty provide surety of outcomes and mitigates risk. With experience of both standard and bespoke forms of contract we are able to achieve excellence in the administration of site works. We advance testing and commissioning programmes at key stages ensuring that delivery is controlled, on time, and thoroughly checked.
Our communication and reporting is transparent and will inspire confidence in our ability to deliver facilities that will not only meet but exceed your expectations.
