How We Work With You
At PowerStrat Business Intelligence we try to accelerate the path to the end result. There is usually the opportunity right away for a few quick wins that are useful to users. The ROI with PowerStrat starts early on in the relationship. This is made possible by our modules that connect directly into client databases, even Excel, MS Access or Sharepoint files.
A client project proceeds through logical phases as shown in the diagram below. A small working team with PowerStrat BI and Client staff is assembled to lead the project. This Team will establish the requirements, ensure that the designs meet the needs of users, that the data is made accessible, that the right people are selected for training, and that the implementation is efficient. Implementations typically follow the project management process developed by the Project Management Institute headed by a qualified Project Management Professional (PMP) provided by PowerStrat BI. This ensures that clients receive the best possible attention and outcome.
