This is a BAF® Best Accredited Professional Forward request. ICG is seeking interested and available accredited professionals to respond to a potential resource request.


ICG is undertaking an IT Systems and Operating model review for a current client who is a mid-sized Australian electronics and household goods retailer and are seeking an SME Consultant.  The Client operates in 3 states with 3 brands across 30+ stores with 3 Distribution Centres.


As part of this review ICG are conducting a market scan for systems to replace the clients’ heavily customised retail POS and Inventory management system.

The client needs a full-stack of functionality from stock forecasting and buying, inventory management, POS, PCI-DSS, rebate management, commissions management, logistics and customer delivery management and service & repair.

The successful consultant will provide guidance as to suitable systems that should be reviewed as part of the market scan. The client has limited in-house IT expertise and is wanting:

  • A viable long-term partner who has an established Australian customer base of similar retail businesses that drive on-going innovation in the product
  • Established local support team or partner
  • Either full stack of functionality or already built integration to specialist packages for buying, market comparison, logistics etc
  • SaaS solution preferred

The consultant must have:

Domain Knowledge of Australian retail systems to accelerate the market scan. They are not expected to conduct the market scan but provide a short list of potential systems suppliers and, from their experience, a high-level summary of the system’s suitability.

Logistics, Location & Rate

Logistics: Starting immediately. The winning professional is expected to participate in a video call with the ICG consultant during which the list of suggested target systems will be created.
Location: Any location
Rate: Recognising the deep Domain Knowledge required the rate is $A500 per hour (gross) for the call.
