The Procurement Process Is More Expansive Than Most Realize

Beyond solution design, pricing exercises and contract negotiations, the solutions need to be implemented as promised both in terms of design and timeline. Careful management of the installation process can ensure timely and accurate delivery of infrastructure and take considerable burden off IT teams in the process.

Installing IT infrastructure projects can be a resource intensive process, requiring considerable time in communications, meetings and troubleshooting. By leveraging an experienced project management resource,  the minutiae and leg work of installations can be handled, freeing up in-house IT resources to take a more strategic role and stay focused on their core areas of focus.
