  • Avoid project creep
  • Stick to budgets
  • Meet the client's requirements
  • Deliver the best quality

Need Support With Your IT Project?

Are you about to embark on a major IT project and concerned about the project going over budget? Perhaps you've already started the project and you've already seen some red flags about the project's costs and timings.

Hiring an outsourced IT Project Manager will put a senior figure with a proven track record in scope creep prevention and cost control at the heart of your project. They will ensure the accurate allocation of resources to keep your project running smoothly and within its deadlines.


PSP Agile IT

A full-time IT professional can cost as much as £100,000 per year, making building an internal team extremely expensive and cost-ineffective.

PSP's agile approach to IT outsourcing gives you access to a team of senior and director-level IT professionals such as a CTO, Business Analyst and Cybersecurity Officer for a fraction of the cost.
