Business Auditing and Consulting
Hardware staging is one of the most important steps in the installation process as it ensures that all equipment is configured and in working order before delivery and implementation. Prior to any ICT installation, AVTech will conduct extensive consultation in order to correctly prepare your infrastructure subsystems, such as workstations, servers, shared devices, switches, etc to ensure that all units are configured and loaded with the necessary components and software.
An ongoing issue with any ICT project is knowing where the products are and whether they will work on delivery. AVTech removes this concern from the client by maintaining an automated inventory control system that tracks equipment through ordering, inspection, configuration to customer acceptance. AVTech clients therefore feel confident that they have full traceability of their investment.
Configuration and Testing
Many organisations will require hardware and software specifications outside of the standard build, whilst others may require the delivery of a Standard Operating System (SOE). AVTech provides its clients with a comprehensive configuration and testing regime as part of the Hardware Staging process. This may include working with manufacturers to ensure special builds are built and tested on-line, design and installation of SOE for servers and workstations and installation of client specific configurations and software. AVTech clients can therefore be confident that there will be minimum disruption to their business during implementation.
There is nothing more frustrating than having project delays because equipment has not arrived on site. As part of its Hardware Staging AVTech ensures that all inventory for a specific site is packaged and where possible all shipped together. To ensure timely delivery of equipment to our clients AVTech also coordinate all aspects of freight movement through to final delivery.
