Business & Needs Analysis – This is the typical starting point for a project. We gather information on the current environment, issues, and changes necessary. Included are hardware, software, workflow, processes, collaboration, and staffing in the review. The deliverable is a report outlining solutions with budget estimates, a timeline, and implementation plan.
Hardware and Software Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade – We have experience with all aspects of digital imaging, including digital cameras, scanners, capture software, color management, and Mac desktops. Past projects have included design of digital imaging studios, including physical layout and utilities.
Server, Storage, and Network Installation, Configuration, and Upgrade – Network design, including mixed environments, routers, and remote access. Recommendation of best of breed storage solutions, including RAID systems, with backup strategies. Linux administration certification.
Digital Asset Management System Assessments and Recommendations, Request for Proposals, Installations, Configurations, Upgrades, Training, and Maintenance – We have worked with almost every DAM system on the market, understand the foundation of what a good DAM should enable, and how to find the best product for a client. Metadata and workflow are what differentiate good DAM implementations from great DAM implementations. A well-thought out DAM strategy can enable new paths for collaboration, and open up the potential for new communication opportunities of an organization’s branding.
Workflow and Information Architecture Design – Are you making optimal use of technology and your resources to automate your digital imaging workflow? Can you find the data you need when you want it? Does your data live in “silos” and not allow you to get a full picture of what your business is doing? A neutral, objective assessment of your environment can illuminate pain points and suggest new technologies to be adopted and new ways to utilize old ones.
Training, Documentation, Facilities Management, and Technical Support Contracts – We can design and implement training programs for new technologies or workflows, document processes and workflows for continued training, manage a digital imaging studio or lab setup for short to medium term projects, and offer service contracts for remote and onsite maintenance of servers, storage, networks, and systems.
Synology Approved Integrator and Partner – We install, configure, and maintain Synology NAS systems.
