FCL Consulting Services

Flagship Computing has established itself as a provider of quality solutions across a broad range of organisations and can add value at all stages in a project's lifecycle. Our project team has a proven track record of delivering robust, enterprise-quality solutions on time and within budget, a key reason that we have won repeat business from several of our clients.
We design, build and deliver software solutions with scalability, extensibility and robustness in mind. Our consultants combine an agile and pragmatic approach with established best practices and processes to ensure quality is built in to each and every project. This has proven to radically reduce development, deployment and post implementation support costs ensuring our clients benefit from the maximum return on their investment in our skills and services.

Flagship Computing has been providing technical consultancy and software development expertise since 1997. In that time we have supported our clients in the successful design, build and deployment of on-premise integrated solutions, highly distributed architectures and systems hosted in the cloud on SalesForce, Azure or Amazon. Those clients vary in size from entry level start-ups to large multi-nationals, operating across a broad range of market sectors such as retail, finance, manufacturing and government and include:

  • Unilever
  • Astra Zeneca Pharmaceuticals
  • Dell Computer Corporation
  • AG Solutions (for British Gas)
  • Warner Brothers Home Video
  • The BBC
  • The Financial Times
  • Visit Britain
  • OAG Travel
  • HMR&C
  • NatWest Bank
  • Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS)
  • Threadneedle Investments
  • Henderson Global Investors
  • O2 / Telefonica
  • Allen and Overy LLP

Flagship Computing has also provided consulting services to other market leading consulting companies such as LOC Consulting , and CloudSense via Associate partnerships.

Benefiting from decades of IT experience within blue chip and government organisations, our team ensures that robust solutions are delivered on time and within budget by adhering to well established system development procedures, practices and software coding standards.
Our wealth of experience across the entire project life-cycle from system design and build, to deployment and post implementation, ensures that best practices can be applied within smaller organisations as well as the largest global enterprises.

The key services provided by our consultants include:
  • Business and systems analysis
  • Software architecture and design
  • Software development
  • Systems integration
  • Data migration
  • Project management
  • Implementation of best practices and processes within development teams
  • Developer mentoring

Whatever the project, our approach is always the same: We focus on working closely with our customers to deliver lean, simple, reliable solutions that best meet their needs in a timely fashion. In short, we always ensure our customers receive excellent value for money.

What we do.

  • We deliver elegant solutions that best meet the client's needs within the available time scale and budget.
  • We strongly believe that technology should support a business rather than constrain it. Our solutions are driven by business needs and processes rather than technology.
  • No matter how complex the problem, our solutions are intended to be simple and provide real business benefit rather than adding overhead. They are engineered to fit within the business, be easy to use, easy to maintain and ready to extend to support business growth.
  • We always aim to add value. If we don't believe that we can add value to an organisation or project, we will say so.

What we don't do.

  • We don't allow the technology to dictate to the business or expect business processes to change to accommodate technologies.
  • We never try to increase our margins by unnecessarily adding consultants to a project.
  • We don't deliver complex, over-engineered solutions that are inflexible and difficult to work with or require endless consulting services to maintain or extend.
