Customer opinions

Our customers appreciate the professional and cooperative cooperation.

"The involvement of BEG & Partners as an external partner in the steering committee of the Arcadia project was an important component for moving forward the urgent changes in the company and their implementation quickly and sustainably. (...) That's why we have enjoyed working with BEG & Partners AG for many years."

"With an experienced project manager BEG enabled us to achieve our goals within the required time and budget (CHF 11.5 million)."

"In a project of this dimension, it is essential to install professional quality assurance. (...) This can only be carried out by external persons with extensive project experience. BEG Partners has provided us with excellent support in this respect (...) BEG has made a decisive contribution to the success of the project through its focused effort."

"BEG helped us to identify savings potential in the four hospital regions of the canton of St. Gallen. The resulting analysis and proposed measures have led us to identify optimization opportunities throughout the canton that can be tapped in a structured manner. In addition, this was the trigger for the creation of a new Swiss-wide benchmark group beyond the established framework. I am very satisfied with the performance of BEG and look forward to further cooperation."

"BEG actively supported us in the preparation of the IT analysis and the IT strategy. It was important for us to use existing and proven methods, which allowed a comprehensive examination of computer science (...) and the classification of our situation within the industry. The systematic and careful handling of the complex issues of our hospital IT, the comprehensibility of the findings, the quality of the documentation and the consensus-oriented approach were particularly valuable. The cooperation with BEG was characterized by professional competence, practical experience and an efficient, goal-oriented approach."

"BEG has guided our management through the process of realigning IT methodically and with many examples. BEG & Partners also supports us with advice and action in the implementation."

"In the project, the existing IT strategy of the Swiss Paraplegic Centre of the year 2011 was replaced. (...) BEG has made a major contribution to the development of the Group-wide IT strategy. We are very satisfied with the result and look forward to further cooperation."

"The cooperation with BEG was professional and focused from the very beginning. (...) In addition to this expertise in project design and management, it should be emphasised that BEG has responded very well to the particularities and requirements of our company as the customer (...) I can therefore only recommend cooperation with BEG to other companies facing similar tasks.(...)"

"The cooperation with BEG was very successful for KSGR's IT department. (...) On this occasion, we found that BEG quickly built up a deep understanding of our individual situation (...). In my opinion, this is due to the broad practical experience and industry knowledge (...) as well as to the distinctive methodological knowledge (...) We were able to rely on the diligence and reliability as well as the quality standards and flexibility of BEG at all times. Overall, BEG's support in developing our strategy has made our work much easier and shorter."

"The collaboration with BEG and the University of St. Gallen has enabled us to deal with the complex subject of procurement and logistics in a very systematic, efficient and yet comprehensive manner. The high level of personal engagement and professionalism of the involved parties were important prerequisites for the fact that a large number of companies were already able to compare themselves in the first benchmark year. We look forward to further cooperation and further development of the benchmark."

"With the cooperation we are extremely satisfied. We would never be where we are today if we hadn't had the professional support of BEG. The commitment to the benchmark is exemplary and the personal exchange is always factual, professional, collegial and directed towards the future. I look forward to the further cooperation."

"Due to the good cooperation in the context of the previous IT analysis and strategy development, BEG also accompanied us in the preparation phase of the sourcing project. Together, the IT services were explored in-depth and a technically meaningful and economically viable proposal was drawn up. In the negotiations with the external service provider, BEG made a considerable contribution to reaching a consensus, which created the conditions for the successful implementation of the sourcing project."

"The build-up of a clinic (...) is a complex challenge. Against the background of the diverse topics in the field of computer science (...), BEG supported us from the very beginning with expert advice and interdisciplinary understanding. This has enabled us to design an IT landscape that is geared towards the sustainable operation of the new hospital, select the products and service providers suitable for MEDICNOVA, and realize significant cost savings in the final negotiations. We are pleased that BEG continues to actively support this demanding project."

"After BEG had already advised us on the assessment of the sourcing capability of our IT services, we were also supported in the actual transition project by BEG. The knowledge of hospital operations on the one hand and the comprehensive experience with hospital IT on the other hand were important factors for the smooth takeover of IT services by our outsourcing partner. We would like to thank you very much for the excellent cooperation."

"Cooperation has always been excellent. Our needs were clarified and understood. We have also greatly appreciated the suggestions for solutions and advice. Inquiries and changes were responded to flexibly and the solutions were implemented quickly. The system is stable and reliable. We are very satisfied with it."

"We were supported by BEG to establish a business/IT alignment across the entire Swiss Paraplegic Group. (...) BEG has understood how to involve the stakeholders in a heterogeneous environment and implement a solution that is optimal for all needs. We are very satisfied with the result and the procedure and look forward to further cooperation."

"The complete setup of a hospital IT system - parallel to the establishment of the entire clinic (personnel, processes, technology, building) - placed high demands on the professional competence, interdisciplinary understanding as well as the readiness and flexibility of all parties involved. BEG provided us with reliable, cooperative support in all questions of project coordination and the technical design of the new IT structures. BEG contributed to the fact that all the essential IT systems were available on time for the planned opening date of the clinic (...)."

"Managed iPads with patient data or a BYOD concept at the Lucerne Cantonal Hospital? (...) Based on these requirements, BEG defined the project procedure and scope: the elaboration and introduction of a mobile device strategy and the establishment of mobile device management. (...) BEG helped us a lot with its experience from other companies and provided their services with great commitment and to our complete satisfaction. Thank you very much!"

"Ad interim, BEG Partners performed the function of security delegate and successfully implemented security management with the divisions."

"Based on an analysis by the University of St. Gallen, in which it was already involved, the BEG & Partners team provided a very useful tool for the assessment of the major federal IT projects."

"BEG has proven that consultants do not have to be the same as consultants. To be judged by the practical feasibility of strategic goals that have been theoretically set beforehand is a, or respectively the USP of a company that sees itself not only as a consultant, but also as a PARTNER."
