Senior IT Leadership Consultancy
Bailey & Associates

Bailey & Associates are a group of seasoned IT experts with a track record of successfully directing the IT Strategy for hundreds of businesses across the UK and the US. We are not your typical IT Consultants, but rather work alongside our clients at the most senior IT expert in their business.

Our role is to make your business more efficient, reduce your costs and help your business achieve it's goals through IT and technology on a completely flexible basis with no fixed term contracts. We are equally happy to work with business which are looking for a long term arrangement, or with businesses which just want help in getting their strategy off the ground but aren't yet sure if they need on-going support. For longer term arrangements we would recommend our Fractional IT Director or Virtual IT Director services, whereas for shorter term arrangements or for clients who aren't quite sure yet, we offer an IT Audit service in which one of our Associates will work with the client to produce a full IT Strategy, with the option of it being led by our associate or instead by the clients internal teams.

With Associates strategically placed all over the UK and US, we can help your business no matter where you are. When placing an Associate in a business, we help find the Associate best suited to your business both from their geographical base, but also their experience. For example if your business is looking to implement a specific element of an IT Strategy, such as Business Intelligence Reporting, we'll place the Associate in your business with the most experience in that area, or, if our experience has a wealth of experience in a specific industry, such as travel then we would also look to supply your business with the associate most experienced in the travel industry for your business.

To see an example of both the clients our Associates have worked with in the past and the success that they've had, take a look at our case studies. We're still publishing new case studies on a regular basis, so if you're interested to hear about some of the different clients we've worked with then please get in touch.
