2.1: Definition of Consultancy Firm

A consulting firm is a business that offers specialized expertise to its clients, which may be businesses or individuals. Different consulting firms offer different types of advice. Although there are numerous types of firms, some of the most popular are information technology (IT) consulting firms and management consulting firms. Other types of business firms include environmental consulting firms and human resource consulting firms.

Each business consulting firm operates its business in a different manner. Firms may offer consultants who concentrate on a specific project or consultants who help train and implement changes to a staff to accomplish specific goals. Project oriented firms typically specialize in a specific business function, such as supply chain or customer relationship management (CRM). These firms analyze their clients’ needs and manage development, implementation and training until it is completed.

A consulting firm that concentrates on staff augmentation begins its service after a client’s business has been analyzed and projects have been outlined and budgeted. Staff augmentation firms offer very specific resources, methodologies and training. Their job is also complete upon implementation.

In some cases a business may need to hire multiple consultants for different areas which need improvement. For example, a large company may contact a management consulting firm to help it increase production. After a company analysis, the management consultant recommends implementing new computer hardware and software. If the business does not have the knowledge or capability to implement the new technology, it hires an IT consultant to complete the project.

3.10: Achievements

Considering the electronic payment industry, ITC has achieved the supreme position and after acquiring of its earlier prime rival Bangladesh Electronic Payment System (BEPS), market position of ITC has strengthen greatly. At the moment ITC serving as third party processor to the Q-cash consortium of 22 member banks and by acquiring BEPS further 7 banks comes under the umbrella of ITC. Overall, ITCL is covering more than 90% of electronic payment industry as a third party processor.

Some of the achievements of ITCL are as follows:

ATM: ITC provided ATM machine Wincor-Nixdorf, the German manufactured, has taken the NCR market position gradually in global market as well as in Bangladesh. The reason to such rapid growth of Wincor-Nixdorf is that currently WN is the only ATM which still manufactured in Germany and it clearly maintains the quality of European Standard and its R&D is continuous to develop new technology in this industry like: WN is the first ATM manufacturer who uses Robotic Technology rather conventional belt system in cash dispensing unit of ATM.

POS Terminals: ITC provide cutting-edge POS solution that is capable to operate as Merchant POS and Bank POS. The competitive advantage for ITC is, the POS application software is developed by ITC itself and it can customize the POS application as per Bank/clients requirement.

KIOSK-Deposit Machines: International Acumen started the KIOSK business in Bangladesh but the market has captured by ITC through its own manufactured KIOSK which operation system is supplied by world famous Wincor-Nixdorf. The KIOSK application software has developed by R&D team of ITC; hence ITC can provide total support to clients resulting almost 90% market share controlled by ITC.

Mobile VAN ATM: ITC has first time introduced the latest concept, Mobile VAN ATM, in Bangladesh. The concept is widely appreciated by Banks and they are interested to commence the concept in their operation.

3.11: About the Departments I Worked

In the business development department I worked as an Internee. During my tenure in this department I have acquired various knowledge and skills. In Chapter-4 I explain about the department I worked.

4.1: Business Development Department

I worked as an internee in Business Development Department of IT Consultants Ltd. Whenever a service or product needs to be sold to the market, it is essential that there are employees who can sell the products or services so that consumers are aware of its uses. The business development manager and its team play a role that may involve visiting companies so travelling is required as well as the need to carry out presentations and write up business reports in order to successfully sell the product or service.

Communicating with other departments of the company would enable the business development manager and team to keep up to date with any company news, development and strategies. The business development team will most likely be given objectives and targets to achieve, so it is therefore important that they are able to keep up or be in line with it. The business development manager will need to constantly be in search for new business opportunities and help with the company’s business strategy. The more customers and clients the business development can bring to the company, the better reputed the company will be and the better the revenue will be generated.

Business development includes a number of techniques designed to develop a Business organization. Some of the techniques are:

  1. Research & assessments of marketing opportunities
  2. Target markets
  3. Intelligence gathering on customers and competitors
  4. Generating leads for possible sales
  5. Follow-up on sales activity
  6. Formal proposals submitted to clients
  7. Good planning and presenting our products and services to prospective clients
  8. Negotiate with future clients
  9. Developing new revenue streams from new products and services
  10. Communicate with people at all levels and most importantly, closing deals and bringing on new clients to the network.

On the whole, business development team play an important role within any company in generating new businesses and helping the company achieve its objectives and targets.

Assessment of Internship

5.1: Learning through my tasks

The tasks that I have learned working with the Business Development team are as follows:

  1. I learned the procedures, workflow and understanding of company products and scope of business.
  2. There are many foreign clients of ITCL. I learned how to talk with the clients.
  3. Have learned how to write Business letter/ offer letter, which is sent to the banks. Also understood the legal requirements of the company by reading the master agreements and Addendum to the agreements and other documents like Service Level Agreement (SLA), Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA’s).

5.2: Comparison between textual work in school and in internship

IT Consultants Ltd. is a great working environment. All of the staffs are professional and personable. I was able to learn and gain a lot of information, experience and build strong connections. My internship experience was wonderful. By taking the internship I was able to take away many more experiences and lessons than I would have been able to in a regular semester class.

6.1: SWOT Analysis

A scan of the internal and external environment is an important part of the strategic planning process. Environmental factors internal to the firm usually can be classified as strengths (S) or weaknesses (W), and those external to the firm can be classified as opportunities (O) or threats (T). Such an analysis of the strategic environment is referred to as a SWOT analysis.

The SWOT analysis provides information that is helpful in matching the organizations resources and capabilities to the competitive environment in which it operates. As such, it is instrumental in strategy formulation and selection.

ITCL’s strengths are its resources and capabilities that can be used as a basis for developing a competitive advantage. Examples of such strengths include:

      IT Consultants Ltd. is the only option as Third Party Processor in the electronic payment system.

      ITCL provides a state-of-the-art scalable system known as Tranzware to issuers and acquirers to all its member Banks.

      ITCL has introduced electronic payment system to Bangladesh Post Office by issuing Postal cash cards to its account holders.

      ITCL provides various international brands and proprietary cards to member Banks.

      Affiliated with VISA, MasterCard.

      It is EMV (European Master VISA) compliant.

      ITCL also process AMEX transactions.

      ITCL provides world class ATMs and POS terminals to its clients.

      KIOSK application software is produced by ITCL.

      Under the Q-Cash consortium there are currently 22 member banks and more in the pipeline.

      ITC has the flexibility to adapt to new technology developments and compliance requirements with ease.


The absence of certain strengths may be viewed as a weakness. For example, each of the following may be considered weaknesses:

      Scarcity of labor in a particular field.

      Services are easily learned and replicated by others.

      Disorganization of some sectors.

      Vulnerable to new technologies.

      Basic functions and core activities are handled by ITC but additional products to the system or changes then ITC is highly dependent on its principal company.

      It has high research & development (R&D) cost.

 In some cases, a weakness may be the flip side of strength. Take the case in which an organization has a large amount of manufacturing capacity. While this capacity may be considered a strength that competitors do not share, it also may be a considered a weakness if the large investment in manufacturing capacity prevents the firm from reacting quickly to changes in the strategic environment.


The external environmental analysis may reveal certain new opportunities for profit and growth. Some examples of such opportunities include:

      ITCL has a great opportunity for horizontal expansion in terms of technology.

      Government policy is favorable.

      Opportunities to offer payment services through cell phones.

      Offering clients the convenience and reliability of an ATM & POS machine provides a low-cost opportunity to increase your profit margin.

      Opportunities to bring new innovative ideas in the payment services that can be offered to the clients

      To capitalize on rapid growth in the information management market


Changes in the external environmental also may present threats to the organization. Some examples of such threats include:

      Network link connectivity. Network problem can occur from ITCL connection or from Bank connection or from the link vendor (METRO, ALAP, Link3, Brac Net).

      Lack of education & knowledge in the Card Business.

      Shortage of knowledgeable people.

      Introduction of competitors using the similar technology can be a threat to ITCL.

      Most of the time bank shows manipulative approach to vendors.

      Natural calamities like earthquake, floods, power shortage can hamper production.

      New entrants offering similar infrastructure in the market.

      Clients opting for a different software solution.

In regards of the limitations found about the special functions of the organization following recommendations are provided:

New Branches Should Be Introduced:  IT Consultants Ltd. has only one office in Dhaka throughout Bangladesh. New branches should be constructed in Dhaka city satisfying more geographic segments. As convenience of communication to the branch location is a very important factor for the clients.ITCL should consider building new branches within Dhaka city.

Advertising & Promotion:  ITCL should pursue an aggressive advertising campaign in order to build up a strong image and reputation among potential customers. In this context, the valuable strengths should be used for positioning the corporate image of the organization. TV ads should be aired to reach a wider array of customers. The ads should capitalize on building strong relationship, needs of customers and quality service of the organization rather than features of products. Thus and offensive marketing strategy emphasizing customer satisfaction and service quality can bring valuable business for the organization.

Direct Social Involvement : To enhance the image of the organization and to assume social responsibility, the organization should engage itself to various social programs like Scholarship to poor but meritorious students, Empowerment of the children in abject poverty, Compaign against dowry and other social evil etc.

      The organization should increase more labor in some particular field. And should increase more knowledgeable. Should be more consern about the competitors.

      Natural calamities like earthquake, floods etc. the organization should be aware before this type of calamities.


As an internee student in IT Consultants Limited, I have truly enjoyed my internship from the learning and experience viewpoint I am confident that three month internship program at IT Consultants Limited will definitely help me to realize career in the job market.

During the course of my practical orientation I have tried to learn the practical lessons to realize my theoretical knowledge, what I have gathered and going to acquire from various courses. It is great pleasure for me to have practical exposure of ITCL, because without practical exposure it couldn’t be possible for me to compare the theory with practice.

Through the departments and sections are covered in the internship program, it is not possible to go to the depth of each activities because of time limitation. So objectives of the internship program have not been fulfilled with complete satisfaction. However, highest effort has been given to achieve the objectives of the internship program.

In fine we can say the profitability of the organization was comparatively satisfactory. Finally we can say if the organization controls its expenses and takes proper steps to overcome its little limitation, it will become a first rows organization of Bangladesh.

So in conclusion it can be said that every organization has its positive as well as negatives & in case of IT Consultants Limited existence of the later one is less than the earlier one & as the management is determined to reach the pick of success it seems that in near future the negatives will be eliminated.
