Designing & Tendering a New Build
When designing a new building you have many aspects of IT to consider & find suppliers for, few suppliers can do everything so ensure that your tendering is matched to potential bidders. The following list is a typical guide to the main elements:
- Connectivity (Broadband feed & WAN)
- Site Infrastructure (Cabling, wifi, switching, firewalls etc.)
- Audio visual (Communication tools, public are use tools, video conference etc.)
- Internal staff IT (Servers, pc’s, software, cloud apps etc. to run the business)
- Digital Marketing (Websites, email, social media etc. to promote the business)
- IT Support services (The resource to maintain & develop)
Technology Shift & Application Choice
If you have an internal team proficient with one technology platform and you are planning to move to a different technology set securing the right external partner is often critical to success. Our consultants are often called upon as an independent judge when tender responses are received to validate that the choice being made is sound.
Whatever you do please make sure you have two things clear in your mind:
