Welcome to LODESTAR Advisory Services
LODESTAR is a leading consulting firm recognised for assisting organisations domestically and internationally in maximising their return on IT investment through better sourcing. For the past nine years we have created “win win” sustainable sourcing arrangements focused on healthy, mutually rewarding relationships between clients and suppliers underpinned by solid contracts, financials and governance structures.
The landscape of outsourcing is changing dramatically. With the positive impact that outsourcing can have on the bottom line, clients are now seeking to engage suppliers to improve business outcomes including:
- Driving cost savings to fund business value
- Increasing agility
- Accelerating market expansion and penetration
- Attracting and retaining customers
- Capitalising on new technologies – mobility, social media, big data, cloud
Fundamental to establishing and maintaining a productive partnership based outsourcing model is the development of viable cost estimates. According to recent publications, “the single most important task of a project is setting realistic expectations … unrealistic expectations based on inaccurate estimates are the single largest cause of project failure.” To address this issue as well as to assist clients in determining the costs of in-house initiatives, LODESTAR has become a reseller of one of the industry’s leading parametric modelling tools – SEER for IT and SEER for Software.
Based on extensive knowledge bases, these products facilitate the rapid development of realistic cost estimates balancing time, labour, quality and risk delivery factors.
