Solution Design

Longbow consultants build on our initial assessment and ultimately create a business case validating proof-of-concept for improving your operational efficiency. That includes evaluating data, IT infrastructure and needs, and all software currently utilized in your facility.

Risk management is a cornerstone of our methodology. We’ll develop and deliver a risk management plan covering resources, responsibilities, fallback options, cutover, long-term support and continuing improvement.

This is an enterprise-wide change requiring enterprise-encompassing change management and training. We’ll work with you to clearly communicate to employees throughout the project lifecycle, so they know what to expect and the purpose of the design. Our team will get to know your team, ascertain their capabilities and develop training for users and superusers alike.
