Ricardo launches TRNTY: a radically new model of on-demand consulting expertise

  • Ricardo TRNTY network brings together the world’s best industry and subject matter experts
  • Designed to provide clients across a variety of sectors with the expertise required to complete diverse and complex projects 
  • Clients to benefit from specialised support that is highly flexible, responsive and cost effective, while consultants benefit from access to a global customer base
  • All consultants verified and regularly reviewed by Ricardo to ensure that quality is maintained

Across many areas of industry and commerce, fast-paced changes in technology, business models and consumer preferences and expectations mean that access to flexible, relevant and highly informed advice and expertise can be crucial to success.  The model of internal talent creation, backed up by specialist consulting support, has served many businesses well over the years.  But as new product and service innovations and disruptive technologies break down established business models and supply chains, the companies most likely to succeed are those able to adapt to this new environment – a new environment in which rapid change is the status quo, and external resource needs are project-based and diverse in terms of skills requirements, rather than predictable and ongoing. 

Ricardo’s TRNTY concept breaks down the barriers in the conventional model of consulting, providing customers with immediate access to a quality-assured global pool of expert consulting support that would be beyond the capability of the largest consulting firms. At the same time, the TRNTY network offers an advanced framework through which expert consultants can offer their services as independent and highly skilled professionals. TRNTY (pronounced ‘trinity’) is so named because it is based upon three pillars: agility, quality and delivery, with rapid engagement from the project inception to completion.

The flexibility of the TRNTY concept – underscored by the verification of consultants by Ricardo – ensures clients benefit from highly specialised, cost-effective assistance that can be readily assessed on-demand.  Additionally, with a global network, the availability of professional support is not limited by a client’s location. 

TRNTY’s support also extends far beyond the sourcing of a client’s perfect consultant. Throughout a consultant’s deployment, TRNTY is on hand to manage and regularly review the relationship, ensuring defined objectives are achieved. As well as providing immediate support, TRNTY can source deployment-ready consultants for clients who have projects in the pipeline.

As well as having a global reach, the TRNTY network provides specialist expertise from a diverse range of sectors, so clients can benefit from related or alternate industry perspectives. TRNTY’s core knowledge base is from automotive, mobility, transportation, energy and environment sectors, complemented by insight from additional innovation-led industries. Therefore, businesses such as OEMs, Tier 1 and Tier 2 suppliers, government and regulatory bodies, or venture capital firms, can all benefit from TRNTY’s ability to deliver relevant expertise when and where required.

In terms of subject matter experts, the network is equally varied. To illustrate, TRNTY offers access to consultants from a multitude of fields, spanning everything from smart mobility to Industry 4.0 and supply chain to powertrain innovation.   

“There’s never been a more exciting time to be involved in technology-led engineering and manufacturing,” explains Sam Hassall, business unit leader of TRNTY, “but it’s also one of the most challenging periods that we have ever experienced. The evolving landscape presents so many opportunities but pushing projects over the line means businesses need to call increasingly on specialisms and insights that are beyond the skillset of their existing workforce. They also frequently don’t have the time, budget, or even know where to find that resource. TRNTY provides a one-stop solution, enabling clients to overcome these challenges, no matter the size or complexity, and ensuring businesses and organizations can efficiently deliver what may be the next big thing in their industry.”
