How we work.
It's not complicated, but it does make a difference.
Small. Packets. Of. Work. Whether you have a massive Intranet or system integration project, or a small set of bug fixes to an existing application – first we undertake a small, fixed price engagement to understand your needs. We Discover. Then we analyse your requirements, and propose a program of mini projects that will bring you closer to your goals – we Design. Then you authorise whichever mini projects you like, and we make it happen – we Deliver. Simple.
Whether our client is a large government department, a corporate powerhouse, a growing SMB, or a 5 man shop – all of them tell us that they love our approach as is minimises risk, builds trust, and maximises value.
What else? Time estimates are provided for each of the mini projects – with each preferably being 2 weeks in length, but never longer than 4 weeks. The price for the mini project is fixed, but the scope will vary depending on what we are actually able to get done within the time period. As we successfully complete mini project after mini project – your confidence in our ability to deliver will grow, as will the realisation that you are getting good value – and that you won’t be left with a big invoice, and no solutions 6 months down the line.
Is that it? Yes. Basically this process reduces risk for both parties. We aren’t keen for fixed-price, fixed-requirement, time-limited work – as in order to mitigate the risk of that, a huge amount of negotiation work is required – and the price will necessarily go up. In other words – we all spend a lot of time talking about what we are going to build, and who is to blame if it goes wrong, but not actually building anything. Everyone loses. We find that building trust and being flexible is the much better methodology… and we are confident that you will agree.

Rochelle Oberholzer, Group Risk Manager
For this project The Solution Collective delivered global, multi-lingual Intranet and Document Management System that is now being used by Austin Engineering’s staff around the world. The platform includes targeted news based on geographic location and division, and a system of smart alerts to notify users when documents have been updated.
Brian Carroll, IT Manager
During this 12-week “Kickstart” project, we provisioned a new SharePoint Online Document Management System for MPK, migrated documents from a legacy SharePoint 2010 system – and prior to ‘go live’ provided a mix of onsite training workshops, and online training pages.
Gerard Ninnes, Digital and Creative Senior Advisor
The Solution Collective worked with CER to design and build a modern Intranet based on SharePoint 2016 technology. The Intranet (called REGi) delivers fresh targeted content, operates as an effective communication tool, and incorporates the principles of usability, accessibility, and intuitive navigation at its core.
Tell us about what you are thinking, and we’ll see if we can help.
