Who we are
BSG is a medium-sized, well established business and IT consulting firm with service capability from project inception through to implementation. BSG was set up in South Africa in 1997. Our UK operation was opened in 2005. Since then, BSG (UK) has worked for a number of global clients including Siemens Financial Services, Cazenove Capital Management, BMI, HSBC, RS Components, Mitsubishi Electric, Angel Trains, Nature Publishing Group and a global insurance market. ...more...
What we do
BSG globally has 15 years' experience in detailed analysis (process, data, systems) and this has resulted in a significant track record of ensuring that business is supported in making informed and accurate decisions on their investments. BSG’s South African development center has enabled us to deliver enterprise software to clients in the UK and across southern Africa. ...more...
How we do it
BSG’s engagement model is based on outcomes-based planning. We approach our work with an analysis toolkit that is world class and adaptive, making it applicable in different contexts. We are not resellers of any software solutions. This allows us to stay objective in our pursuit to ensure that client business interests are met when assessing client requirements and investment decisions. ...more...
What our clients are saying
Having BSG show us a range of options alongside our requirements set was a real turning point. This approach allowed us to make an objective assessment of which software best suited our needs.
We have five thousand contact records spread across seven data sources of various sizes. It is essential to the ongoing success of our organisation that we are able to build a single view of our contacts. With BSG’s help, we’ve chosen and deployed a single source to build an enabling platform for our organisation.
BSG delivered a tailored BA skills programme including training and coaching based on sharing their hands-on experience of change projects. After BSG’s BA training programme, I saw that our BAs were trying new tools and techniques in an effort to improve our own ability to deliver change.
I view BSG more as a partner than as consultants. A consultant comes in with a contract and programme, nothing meaty comes out of it. With BSG, they role up their sleeves, become part of the team and uncovered new processes. Not like the other consultants here. The BSG guys are always part of the team, to the extent that I would not call them consultants.
The one thing I love about BSG is that they know our business and it feels as if they have been in the business always.
BSG are industry leaders in terms of their systems development lifecycle knowledge. We collaboratively developed a new methodology which is flexible enough to use across our different IT functions and systems. Stakeholders across the business have reflected that the methodology has improved the quality of the relationship between Business and IT resulting in better specification of requirement and management of expectations.
We consider our relationships with clients as a partnership and not just a service provider. This enables our strong capability to co-create and collaborate during solution delivery. This is evidenced by many multi-year, multi-project relationships, the largest of which extends well over ten years where we have delivered over 100 projects. ...more...
Culture and values
We are a principle driven organisation. Our value set, created by the whole organisation, underpins our interactions with our customers and ourselves. They are reinforced internally in our culture and our reward structures. The respect that emanates from being true to these values is reflected in the strength of relationships we create within our organisation, with our clients and within the greater community. ...more...
Being passionate about positive change doesn’t end when the workday is over. We are inspired by creating opportunities to positively impact our community and environment. In whatever region we operate, BSG is actively involved in a number of initiatives to develop the IT industry, benefit the community and protect our environment. BSG runs a co-ordinated Social Responsibility programme with education forming a part of our core themes. ...more...
