"The TCS IT Best Practices Audit did an excellent job in showing us where our infrastructure was meeting best practices and it helped
us focus our efforts to areas that needed improvement. The depth and breadth of the subject matter is impressive and revealed a few
surprise issues that we were able to address immediately. The reports provide a strong visual impact that made it easy to present to
our management team. We employed it to justify some budget issues and to help us formulate some tactical plans for upcoming projects.
The direct input from the TCS Consultant gave us valuable information that supplemented the written report. We have now established a
baseline of our environment and will use this tool on a periodic basis to assess our progress and as an easily understood aid to top
management's understanding of our mission. I highly recommend the services of The Consultants Source to all CIOs looking to improve
their operations and to make a strong business case to their management. Any organization that wants to effectively measure their use of
IT best practices needs this tool."Thomas M. Remakel, Vice President Information Management Systems - Metropolitan
