Product / Service / Licensing
Our Consulting Services practice is at the core of our services. Our clientele is comprised of the three tiers of government Federal, Provincial and Municipal and the private sector, particularly those firms with larger client-server environments. We provide a wide spectrum of IT resources with a focus in the telecommunications and security areas. With a solid needs assessment process in place, we work closely with the client to understand their requirements and articulate expected outcomes. We provide technical experts who have an in-depth working knowledge of the client environment, technical expertise and project management skills, ensuring a quality delivery in a cost effective manner.
Consulting Services Approach
At Building Blocks, our approach to consulting services consists of assigning a practice manager to deliver on our commitment to clients. The practice manager is in fact the project coordinator responsible for interfacing with the client, bringing together the delivery teams, and keeping the project on budget and on time. Depending on the stage our client is at, Building Blocks will deploy the following steps:
1. Qualification of requirement
2. Needs assessment
3. Verification of deliverables
4. Proposed approach for delivery
5. Delivery schedule
6. Weekly or monthly project tracking
7. Budgetary tracking
The types of resources we provide individually or within a team, include:
* Project managers
* Network Architects
* Telecommunication Specialists
* Implementation resources
* Security technical and non-technical
* Policy Analysts
