The economic downturn since 2008 has been a troublesome time for most businesses. Many failed – but just as many entrepreneurs took this downturn as an opportunity. Keith Armstrong, founder of the multi-disciplinary ICT and Engineering consulting group - Noventus, took the plunge – and it has paid off. “There was not a great deal of CAPEX. Also it was challenging getting the word out that we could provide the same, and often better, outcomes than our competitors with superior value and service,” Armstrong says. “This was overcome by sheer hard work and belief in our business model.”
Noventus is now a preeminent national consulting firm specialising in customised advisory services for Government and large blue chip multi-national systems integrators across the full project lifecycle. Noventus teams are currently deployed in all Australian major capital cities and regional hubs. The Noventus diversified service offerings are solving complex problems by applying unified Systems Engineering, Project Management, Multi-Disciplinary Engineering, Test& Evaluation, Logistics, Security, and ICT solutions.
Moving forward, Armstrong has developed a “multi-faceted growth strategy”.
"It involves base retention (maintaining strong client relationships), moving in adjacent markets (creating new clients through new ideas generation and thought leadership), and increasing out market coverage and position ourselves in rising markets,” he says.
