IT service companies are a very fragmented sector, with 100K companies, all trying to get clients. Instead of cold calling, what do you think of quality based IT service outsourcing search ? Do you think this kind of search is valuable to IT consulting service buyer and also to IT consulting service firms? Thanks, Ruth

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

An IT consultant is generally someone who is NOT employed by a company but usually has rather broad access to a company’s network and data. Most large companies already have an IT staff (maybe a staff of one) so it would seem that those “shopping” for a part time IT person would probably want to research backgrounds or just go with a recommendation by a another person in their field. I can see a place for these types of sites, but I would see them more as a niche market that mainstream.
