Our Methodology.

The 848 methodology Plan, Build and Run for IT Transformation.

The 848 plan, build, run methodology has been tried, tested and fine-tuned over more than a decade. This flexible approach ensures we capture every detail and requirement within your business, to deliver projects with minimal disruption and maximum value.  

After we gain a deep understanding of your business, we design and deliver solutions that align with your needs, goals and business strategy. 848 will support you throughout the entire IT lifecycle.  

We view client relationships as partnerships and guide you seamlessly right through from initial consultation to design and implementation, and ongoing aftercare, training, and support.
