Technology Investment Priorities in 2015 and Beyond ow.ly/FVxY8
Project management is essential for the successful deployment of audio visual systems and can often be the difference for completing a project on-time. Proven processes and methodologies must be in place to ensure effective communication and resource planning. Therefore, every audio visual installation begins with an experienced project manager that coordinates all aspects of the project and serves as a dedicated point of contact for customers.
Centralized Project Management Software
Our team of certified Project Managers (PM) creates a project plan with specially designed software that has unique work-force management capabilities in addition to standard project management capabilities. This allows our PMs to manage the implantation in a more effective manner by limiting delays due to the unavailability of technicians or other resources.
Coordinate Logistics, Configuration & Integration
Milestones and completion dates are set based on the target installation date and the PM begins coordinating and scheduling the resources needed to complete the project. This includes ordering and tracking materials, scheduling and meeting with contractors, working with installation technicians and control system programmers, overseeing the rack build and more.
Once the rack has been built, the PM will coordinate delivery to the site and schedule technicians to install the equipment. On the first day of installation, field technicians will arrive and check -in with the designated point of contact the complete the following tasks:
- Installation of the equipment at the customer’s facility
- Configuration and orientation of the equipment
- Troubleshooting and testing of the unit to ensure functionality
- End user system orientation during the same visit as installation and testing
Field-technicians are in constant communication with the PM throughout installation and have immediate access to engineers and advanced technical support thereby limiting delays.
Strong Communication with Project Meetings & Status Updates
Throughout the entire implementation process, the PM will remain in close contact with the client to ensure all deadlines are met. Additionally, he will serve as a liaison between the client and IVCi personnel to ensure an organized and effective process resulting in a hassle-free project for customers.
