Requirements Analysis


  • We have to understand your business needs.
  • What issues do you currently have?
  • What are your frustrations?
  • How do you need to work?
  • What's holding your company back?
  • How can we make your business more productive?
  • What timescale are we working to?

Specification

We'll develop a complete solution and communicate the design without TLAs (three letter acronyms) and techno jargon. We'll explain how we propose to implement the solution and clearly state the project deliverables. You receive a fixed-price proposal. That means the project is delivered to budget with no unexpected surprises.


Build

Whether it is a new application, database, telephone system or network infrastructure, ihotdesk will develop the solution and keep you regularly informed of progress. Infrastructure projects sometimes involve other suppliers; our Project Manager takes away any hassles from you, allowing you to focus on your business.


Staging

Where practical, we can build the solution off-site, so it is fully tested before implementation at your premises. This reduces the disruption within your office. New applications and databases are tested by you and further customisation made ahead of the final phase.


Implementation

This is the phase where the new system goes live. It is implemented at a time that is convenient to your business. Typically infrastructure projects are completed at weekends, we do not charge a premium for out of hours work. Training your people is essential. The training course that was developed during the Build phase is provided at your offices. Our trainers will also be on hand the day we go live, so you get rapid help with any queries. The solution is fully documented, so that you know what has been delivered and we can provide on-going support or you can support the system in-house.


ihotdesk provides a fixed price for your project. This removes the risk of spiraling costs for you, which is sadly all too common with any type of project. We are the technology experts, so why should you have the financial risk?

 

Our project managers are trained in PRINCE2 (PRojects IN Controlled Environments) is a process-based method for effective project management. PRINCE2 is a de facto standard used extensively by the UK Government and is widely recognised and used in the private sector, both in the UK and internationally.
