IT projects, such as an office move, data center configurations, or equipment updates, can put loads of excessive stress on your IT team. They need to keep the IT side of your business running while planning, preparing and executing new endeavors. Therefore, IT projects oftentimes fail, not due to the technology itself but because they were never set up for success from the start.
Ricoh’s IT Project Based Services can assist your business with the planning, preparation and execution of a large, or small IT project, while helping to ensure your project is delivered correctly, on time, and within budget.
Our IT Project Based Services are designed to minimize the risk associated with your critical or large-scale jobs. With our experienced team of experts, we will focus our resources to aggressively define your specific problems, solve them, and deliver high quality results throughout the project execution, all while keeping you in the loop.
IT systems and equipment play a major role in the success of your business — touching almost all parts of your organization. Consequently, the projects that surround your IT systems pose a large risk if something goes awry.
That’s where we can help.
Achieving your specific goal, on time and within budget is our top priority and the planning and preparation that goes into meeting these goals is how we make your IT project a success. In fact, 54% percent of IT project failures can be attributed to project management, whereas only 3% are attributed to technical challenges.1
The planning portion of any IT project can be the most crucial step in a project’s life cycle. Ricoh’s IT Project Based Services will work to understand your current environment, evaluate your needs, effectively develop and implement the solution and, if necessary, provide the training so you can take the project and run with it. We have close relationships with third party vendors and are able to obtain the right software and equipment that your project requires without blowing your budget.
We also work proactively, initiating conversations and planning stages concerning future projects including hardware and software updates.
From purpose, objectives, constraints and project deliverables to schedule and budget summary, there’s a lot that goes into an IT based project. We have the engineering talent paired with experience to carefully and meticulously plan for each aspect of your IT project and keep you informed along the way.
Some IT projects may be more frequent and routine while others
such as an office move, may be something your IT team has never had to address. They may lack the necessary experience when it comes to
carrying out these types of IT critical projects, putting your business
at risk of downtime or create costly mistakes.
While a data center move, for example, may occur at your organization once every five to ten years, we execute data center moves
for businesses of all sizes quite frequently. As a result, we are
able to apply our various experiences and best-practice methodologies
to your IT project, helping to ensure your project is carried out on
time, on budget and produces maximum efficiency and results.
