We make the complex simple
Saros Consulting was established in 2012 and is headquartered in Dublin city centre. We provide independent, impartial IT advice, project and vendor management services. We work with clients in all sectors of national and international business. Our service enables you to meet your business objectives by having a solid, robust and scalable IT strategy. A Saros strategy will align your IT investments with your business goals.
IT is a vital component of modern business, be it big or small. However, all too often the proposed solutions create more problems than they resolve, adding expense where they should create value.
Our vision is simple; we believe that great IT is transformational, driving business development and connecting people to their goals. Our approach is equally simple; we put our expertise to work in your best interests, we are part of your team, and on your side always. We will examine, explore and evaluate, doing so without fear or favour, in a manner that is clear and actionable.
We provide the advice that empowers positive change. We transform IT from a mandatory business component into a vital engine powering simplicity and security, connectivity and control, all unified by our in-depth understanding. This is not about technology; this is about creating the springboard that drives business where it needs to go next.

We used Saros Consulting to help us with the tendering out of our comprehensive IT contract, our IT strategy and a project review. They helped us focus our requirements and as a direct result of their help, we found an ideal IT contractor to partner with, have reduced cost on a range of projects and are now implementing our IT strategy.
We understood we needed to invest in our IT infrastructure, focusing on disaster recovery and business continuity. Aware that there are many different IT solutions available, we required expert IT advice and thus engaged Saros Consulting. A pragmatic approach was taken by Saros using their own methodology. A full strategic assessment of the requirement was undertaken and findings presented back in a clear, concise manner. Following the assessment Saros developed an IT strategy that included independent solutions to our business challenges. We have been very satisfied with the service and professionalism of Saros and are continuing to use their project management services for additional projects.
Saros Consulting have been charged to work alongside our property services division on the build and fit-out of our new international offices. Saros clearly have a comprehensive understanding of our IT requirements and have the ability to lay out precisely these requirements for each project. The property services team benefit greatly from working alongside Saros and without Saros’ efforts the projects would struggle to achieve the high standards required. I am hugely impressed with the Saros team.
Our organisation, an international financial advisory group, was in the process of transitioning our European entity to Ireland. We required assistance with the planning and implementation of IT systems and services to ensure this transition was seamless. We engaged Saros Consulting to manage the project in its entirety and have been impressed with their agility, knowledge and ability.
