Why would you need a consultant?

In any business there are a number issues that need to addressed and monitored.  It is a constant juggling act that requires skill and commitment.  However, these business areas can become overlooked or stagnate due to time and resource constraints.  At Vistara we address these with a detailed analysis of the business situation and requirements and develop solutions to overcome these shortcomings.

I have used consultants before with little success, how is Vistara any different?

Success can be measured in a variety of ways, but in business it is generally associated with a monetary value. At Vistara Consulting we work with our clients to closely ensure that the solutions we provide will result in a meaningful monetary improvement. As part of our process we continue to monitor that success with our clients and build a solid relationship for future endeavours.

How long is the process?

Each engagement can vary depending upon the complexity and depth of the project and requirements.  We strive to minimize the length in order for the client to be able to move forward with the solutions we help to develop.

How do I know what I am getting?

Vistara Consulting provides a detailed scope of the project objects, goals and timeline. We discuss with our clients in depth regarding their expectations from the engagement and the timeframe of the project.

Are there any hidden costs?

No, there are no hidden costs.  Each engagement or project will have a clearly defined scope and cost associated with it.  Any additional requests beyond the scope will be discussed with our client and added if required or requested.

How is Vistara Consulting different from all of the other consultants in the market?

In our experience, most consultants will help you organize or prioritize what you already know about your company.  Others may act as coaches. However, the Vistara difference is that we take that further and help to manage and implement the solutions for small to medium enterprises that lack the internal resources.  In short, we help to ensure that the money you invest in business consultants is not wasted, that the insights and benefits do not evaporate.

Unlike some consulting firms that strive to maximize billable hours and focus on what is best for their own business, we at Vistara Consulting know that importance of obtaining value for services rendered.  We work with our clients to ensure that engagement involves the minimum amount of hours and the services and solutions are in the best interest of the client.
