System Development & Configuration
The system development and configuration phase is based on the results of the discovery and planning phases. This phase encompasses software deployment, configuration, custom development, and documentation.
Today's estimating and integration software is highly configurable. It requires detailed planning, prototyping, testing, and production deployment support.
Our consultants have worked on thousands of projects with a wide range of configuration requirements including desktop and cloud-based solutions. They bring their experience to your team to deliver a system that meets your current operational and long-term maintenance needs.
Common configuration goals include:
- System views by user
- Security and user permissions
- Indirect cost build-up
- Coding structures (WBS, CBS, OBS, CLIN, Area, etc.)
- Reporting layouts
- Workflow and approvals
- Integration settings and optimization
Although custom development is not always required, sometimes your company has needs that go beyond what the software can support through configuration.
You have existing systems that either feed data into the cost estimating solution or receive data from the cost estimating solution. Or both.
Database development, custom reports, custom integrations, and other utilities are common custom solutions.
