Other Benefits

Consistent Project Management & Implementation

 

As part of any deployment, Infradapt’s project management team makes sure things go smoothly. A dedicated project manager will be assigned to your project to coordinate logistics, manage schedules, and keep everyone in sync.

Full Life-Cycle Support

Infradapt’s 24-hour helpdesk is always available to support your network, computer, and telephony needs. Whether responding to a basic configuration question or a carrier outage, our front-line engineers will work with you to diagnose your problem, ensuring rapid resolution. Periodic strategic consulting to review the effectiveness of your platform and operations will ensure that your organization continues to have the most efficient and cost-effective solution in place. Our relationship is an ongoing commitment to ensure capabilities meet requirements at the correct price point.

The Right Partner For Your Project

Whether you are expanding and opening a new site or confronting the limitations of an aging voice or data platform, Infradapt can implement your InfraPremise project from start to finish – evaluating system requirements, building a business case, and ultimately installing and supporting your ideal environment.

Smooth Deployment

The goal of any migration or initial rollout is a smooth transition while keeping business disruption to a minimum. Infradapt assigns an experienced project management team that has coordinated solution implementations in industries as diverse as aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, and financial services. From integrating with a legacy platform, to porting numbers between carriers, even migrating departments in phases, Infradapt has the experience to deliver on-time and on-budget. Our clients have confidence because we have done it before.

Features You Can Use

Most organizations deploying a new PBX only enable just enough features to mimic a previous system, missing a valuable opportunity. As part of a PBX deployment, Infradapt will work with you to develop a plan to activate the most appropriate features for your organization and then conduct user, supervisor, or administrator training as needed. The goal is to ensure you achieve the maximum organizational benefit, including productivity enhancements. We operate in a similar fashion with regards to hardware and software, rigorously reviewing requirements and achieving the most cost-effective deployment of resources to meet both current and anticipated needs.

The Confidence of Continuity

Ultimately, every site will experience some form of power or telecommunications service disruption to the point where callers will be unable to reach their system. In many cases, no cost to low-cost options are available from your carrier that will allow service to be redirected around such an outage. Additionally, Infradapt can offer an optional business continuity service from its cloud voice platform that can sustain your organization through an extended site emergency or outage.

Realizing ROI

Infradapt analyses many factors when completing a project Return on Investment (ROI) study for an organization. Beyond the basic equipment replacement ROI, maintenance cost reduction, lease buyout or replacement advantage, etc. Infradapt also looks at how current and proposed infrastructure is being consumed. Phone and Internet costs are reviewed, carrier traffic studies are performed, and ultimately the most cost-effective solution is proposed for your organization. In many cases follow-up (and ongoing) post-implementation consumption studies can be performed to make sure your organization is not overspending on data and telecommunications hardware and software or underestimating demand and missing opportunities.

HaaS / Leasing / Financing Available

Infradapt will work with your preferred lender should you wish to finance your infrastructure investment. Additionally, we have already qualified several of the industry’s top financial services firms to offer turn-key equipment financing for our solutions. In most cases, an offer from one of these firms can even be included with a proposal or price quotation. Ask an Infradapt solutions specialist for more information about taking advantage of these offers.

Comprehensive Professional Support & Services

Infradapt offers a full range of professional services including a 24/7 helpdesk and monitoring service to help support your critical operations. Whether the need is application integration, on-screen scripting, custom report design, or emergency operations support, Infradapt can help you maximize your contact center investments.
