How Strategic Consultants Steer Healthcare Projects Towards Success
Over the past 20 years in the healthcare market, our strategic consulting team has experienced both common and unique challenges..
Every year corporate America wastes millions of dollars by either implementing the wrong technology in their workplace or implementing the right technology the wrong way, resulting in wasted time and frustration.Even five minutes wasted fiddling with technology (setting up a conference call, a video call, trying to connect to WiFi) every day results in millions of dollars lost per year.
Chances are that you’re not an expert in every aspect of building technology, whether it’s security systems, audiovisual systems, or telecommunications infrastructure.An expert technology consultant educates you and helps you ask the right questions. Questions such as:
Does your current technology management strategy align with your business objectives? An outside consultant can bring fresh insight and comparative benchmarking, which is beneficial in understanding where to find value. Because we have worked with many different organizations and may have solved similar problems in the past, consultants can give you straight talk about what works and what doesn’t. We help you with decisions such as:
“If we’re brought on early enough — at the programming phase, ideally — we can sit down with the architect and go through a series of ‘what-if’ exercises,” explains TEECOM Principal, Executive Vice President Larry Anderson. “These conversations may cost the owner or design team an hour or two in the early phases, but they can save thousands in change orders as the design progresses.”

Do you have the time to oversee your vendors to ensure they complete the job according to your standards? A tech consultant acts as a dedicated extension of your team, and because we’re not full-time employees through your corporation, we’re less expensive than hiring an internal resource. Consultants take daunting, time-consuming tasks off of your plate so you can focus on initiatives and projects that you want or need to focus on. One global client had documented 900 steps needed to complete technology planning, design, and implementation. “By identifying role redundancies and reordering some steps to eliminate back-tracking, we simplified this to about 250 steps,” says TEECOM Principal, Executive Vice President Kenneth Webb Jr. “The time to deliver a floor [for this client] was reduced from 26 weeks to 17 weeks.”
Reliable, trusted building technology consultants are industry experts, capable of delivering increased satisfaction scores coupled with on-time, under-budget projects that scale at a global capacity. Skilled consultants can document standardized, templatized services so that you can replicate the results time and again. These optimized services give you a time-to-market advantage.That kind of expertise can save you money. So much money, in fact, that it is highly likely to pay for the cost of hiring the consultant in the first place.
