The beginning of the year is always a great time to start planning out projects. If you have been considering a revitalization of your operations center or the construction of a new one, this is an optimal time to lay out your plans.
Complex spaces such as mission critical installations require thorough, long-term planning. For something as detailed and as vital as your operations center project, it is wise to involve strategic partners as early in the process as possible.
Choosing the right strategic partner, however, is not always a simple task. For these complex environments, it’s important to work with a technology planner that has been thoroughly vetted.
Here are some elements that can help you determine the right technology partner:
Works alongside you every step of the way
When it comes to mission critical, you don’t just need someone to make a plan — you need a partner to help implement it, as well. At Constant, we work with you every step of the way, from initial design concepts all the way through project completion. We also provide service and support after the fact to ensure that your installation continues to operate as planned.
Has a track record of innovation and remaining on the cutting edge
Creating an operations center is an involved process. With all the work that goes into it, you want to make sure that what has been implemented is relevant and useful — not something that will be “behind the times” almost as soon as it’s finished.
At Constant Technologies, we pride ourselves on walking the fine line between “cutting edge” and “bleeding edge,” which means that we deliver the most innovative and fresh technology solutions while ensuring that these solutions have proven reliable.
Proven experience with your type of installation
When choosing an integrator for your command center, past performance is a key indicator of their success and trustworthiness. For a project at this level of importance, it’s imperative to choose an integrator with a proven track record of success in mission critical installations.
At Constant, our client list speaks for itself. Our work with firms like Aetna, CVS, Akamai Technologies, Carnival Cruise, Facebook, Lockheed Martin, and more as well as with government agencies such as the Department of Defense, United States Coast Guard and Air Force proves that we can be trusted with the most sensitive environments.
There are a lot of video wall integrators out there, and many of them have tried their hand at mission critical projects. But no one else specializes exclusively in the field of mission critical. We have always focused on building our expertise and sticking with what we know — and knowing it better than anyone else. After 30 years of nothing but mission critical, it’s safe to say we’re experts in the field.
Has good partner relationships
Actually implementing the project and technology that you’ve planned is a key part of working with a technology planner. The right technology planner will have a number of partners to bring the concept to reality. An integrator needs dependable technology vendors with proven solutions to provide an top-notch user experience.
Constant has built up a strong network of trusted partners that we know can provide the necessary elements for successful operations center technology. We only work with the best of the best to ensure the products we install in your command center are reliable and best optimized to suit your needs.
Forward thinking and plans for the future
The best kind of technology planning partner is one that can work with an eye toward future needs and expansion. Constant Technologies plans for both your service needs and potential future changes to your operations.
We take service and support seriously at Constant — so much in fact, that we built out a Support Operations Center within our headquarters to better provide service to our customers and ensure maximum uptime. Whatever the future holds for your space, Constant’s team will be at the ready to help iron out any issues that come up.
We also design for future changes to your mission or space. Whether it’s storage units that can later be swapped out for additional consoles or integrating adjoining spaces that could be used as breakout situation rooms in a crisis, we tailor every detail for both your current and future needs.
