What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
They’ve never missed a deadline. If they’ve ever been delayed, it’s been because of us. Their auditing and reporting help us stay secure; we’ve had no breaches over the last four years.
How did Shield 7 Consulting perform from a project management standpoint?
Shield 7 Consulting is an amazing group that’s able to keep and maintain their deadlines. They understand the importance of the client and how their work affects the ongoing success of the client. They’re very transparent in their communication with us; they keep us up to speed on what they’ve found and what they’d recommend. I give them high marks for communications, work product, and adherence to milestones. They’re a vendor I don’t have to worry about.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They maintain truly deep subject matter expertise. This is what they do. There are a lot of groups that try to spread themselves thin and say they’re experts in everything, while Shield 7 Consulting really focuses on being a mile deep. I trust and rely on their consulting because they’re constantly staying with new trends and seeing what’s out there. They’re very, very experienced.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, I’m completely satisfied. I’ve never asked them to change a thing, and they do exactly what I need them to do.
Any advice for potential customers?
I’d say to just hire them and understand that this group understands how to quote and build out project plans; if they say a project is going to take a certain amount of time, it will. These guys really have their stuff together.
