Decade of Service – A Decade of Excellence
On May 5th, 2005 a new professional services consulting firm was launched in Richmond Virginia. The focus of the firm’s service portfolio would be centered on an organizations business operation to assist them in all aspects of their Information Technology investments. The goal of the firm was to supply consulting services of the highest quality at the most economical cost possible. The quality of these services and the performance of the firm would be measured by the customer’s satisfaction and so International Consulting Services LLC (ICS) was born. Now a decade-and-a-half later the firm has grown to be one of the best known firms in the Richmond public sector, serving Virginia State government and local governments across Virginia.
ICS knows that its goal of high quality services at an economic cost will never totally be achieved as we continually move the bar higher and higher but it has certainly been recognized by our customers, evident by an average satisfaction rating of 4.65 out of a possible 5. In addition 100% of the customer satisfaction surveys returned state that customers would willingly re-engage and highly recommend ICS.
It has been a rewarding and challenging ten-and-a-half years. Rewarding from one aspect of being able to assist Virginia state government in establishing an internationally recognized performance management system, challenging in having to navigate one of the toughest recessions in U.S. history which makes me proud of what we have achieved over the past ten years.
These achievements are only possible because of the professionalism, hard work and dedication that each and every ICS consultant brings to his or her daily activities. ICS is not an individual, it is a team of dedicated professionals that may not work together but share a common goal to ensure they provide their customers the highest possible quality services.
