Your organization is about to install network cables or upgrading them to a higher bandwidth. You are mandated to oversee the project, and you really want to provide the best for the organization. Then seek for help from a network installer company.
There are many network installer companies out there, be careful to get the best one. You can do this through a careful research about the existing network companies in area. Many people say why do you waste time conducting research and you know a person who can connect you to them. Researching is time consuming but a worthy undertaking because of the following reasons
Helps you differentiate competent and incompetent firms.
Every organization is looking for a competent and reputable company to meet their networking and cabling needs. Not many of them are lucky, infact they realize later that company can not install fibre cables and the project is taking too long. The management is mad at that employee responsible for the hiring.
You can avoid all this by identifying all the voice and data companies in the area. Find out how long they have been in the business. You may discover that one company has been in the business for 50 years and another one 1 year. Do not be tempted to stick on longevity alone, go an extra mile to determine their skills and knowledge, training, certification and experience of the team.
You can do this by looking at their website page and profile of each team member. Look also for clients those companies have worked for and ask them about their services. If clients are complaining about a certain company that is a great warning.
Enable you understand how work is done
Each network installer company has its own way of carrying out an assignment. Ask each company how they will approach cable installation project. The responses will help you make a choice.a good company will start by assessing your current situation and produce findings in form of a report. This way they will be better equipped to ensure you have a robust network that performs well with minimal disruption. Avoid those companies who can not assess your physical equipment, determine how your organization uses voice and data.
Help you budget for quality work
When you settle on some networking companies that you think are good for the job. Make arrangements to invite them over to submit a proposal. Plan in advance which information you need and include those questions in the proposal. For example, the proposal could focus on the price of the assignment. When all the proposals have been submitted, study and evaluate them carefully. Look at how each company has answered the questions. A networking company that has systematically shown how money will be used,makes it easy for you to follow and decide. you may think about doing business with them even if it is expensive.
