ABOUT

We are a unique collaboration of seasoned business and IT professionals with diverse industry experience delivering top tier end-to-end solutions. Vendor agnostic, we are able to select best in class components to help you deploy world-class scalable solutions that will grow with your business. We’ve worked with all of the large service providers, we know how they work, we know where they make their money.

Invariably a large provider will propose a solution that is in their interests to provide you, maximizing margin and generating annuity business. They will propose their own components to a solution over the industry leading options because that’s all they will support and, conveniently there’s more margin in their proprietary solution.

Frequently, going to the ‘one stop shop’ to implement your business or IT strategy ties you in to the extent that exiting the agreement becomes so complex and cost prohibitive you’ll be with them, like it or not, for years to come.

We can see through this and help you arrive at a solution that is right for you, on terms that suit you, adopting a best of breed modular approach using industry standard interfaces. This gives you the flexibility and freedom to adapt to the changing demands of your business without being constrained by a master service agreement.

You can be sure that the specialists that engage with you are the best people for the job, not simply resources that are ‘on the bench’ waiting for an assignment in order for them to ‘earn their keep’. Take comfort in the fact that whilst we pull together a bespoke team for each engagement using agreements we have in place with our closed group of SME’s, continuity and accountability is maintained via the core team here at Red Parachute Group.

TESTIMONIALS

Many people choose to bash the vendor in a customer - supplier relationship. Mark Bailey of Red Parachute Group operates at a more effective and mature level: ensuring that goals are aligned and recognizing that success will come with a collaborative team effort. Mark always sees the bigger picture and was always thinking proactively, even though we worked in an inherently reactive operations area. Mark epitomizes the word partner.
