The 3GI sales process is designed to be a consultancy experience with the view to not only "Quote for business" but ensure that we take a good look at your front to back flows and ensure that we are engineering with the intent of enhancing your competitive edge in the market through technology. Through our initial session you will also be left with a list of enhancements to your environment which you could give to any supplier i.e. the benefit you will get from our initial session can be given to any vendor to quote.
This of course is all explained in non IT language and all minutes from the meeting are recorded with follow up actions resulting in a final specification / proposal issued. This will include:
Our design and implementation follows the same process which we use to deliver global projects for Investment Banks and financial institutions. This process is aimed to treat the client as a "Project Sponsor" so you are able to track and become part of the implementation process every step of the way (regardless if you know IT or not). With many aspects of IT being Business / Risk / Budget / Growth decisions we ensure that you are the point person making the key decisions.
Please see below the ethos in our design and implementation:
A core question we are asked within the sales process is how does our Service level Agreement works, to answer this we explain more how our business model works. Our industry routes are within Investment Banks whether it be Development or IT Infrastructure we have to ensure that we have a quick response team ready to be deployed within seconds. If the ops team identifies a server which has stopped responding or a trade load batch operation that has not executed correctly overnight then regardless if people are in bed the call tree process will wake people from their beds if necessary to ensure that we keep production systems running 24-7.
For low severity (business as usual) IT fixes then the process is quite simple, rather than referring the user to "You only have a 4 hour SLA" if the Helpdesk can not fix the issue instantly then they will ensure with the user that the resolution time meets their expectation.
