The project, carried out over several months, included:

- A capability assessment of the company's technologies, products and customer base enabling identification of key target markets.

Axess Technologies Ltd works for a number of suppliers on a retainer basis, working an agreed number of days each month. One supplier of security products, asked Axess Technologies to manage a range of product development and technical support projects to supplement their in-house resource. The benefit of subcontracting for the client were threefold:

- Axess Technologies Ltd provided project management expertise whilst in-house staff carried out the bulk of the work. This approach proved to be very cost effective.
- Axess Technologies Ltd consultants were able to avoid any internal distractions or pressures experienced by the in-house team. This ensured a timely conclusion to urgent projects.
- The client was able to draw on the experience of a number of Axess Technologies consultants who have a variety of skills and expertise that were not available for the client internally.

Axess Technologies Ltd reviewed an emerging technology to determine its suitability as a brand protection solution on behalf of a Venture Capitalist considering investment. The project included feasibility studies, market suitability reviews and projected investment requirements.
