Technology, Workflow, Vendor Consultation

UDC has diversified experience in the implementation of GIS systems, applications, and design and mobile services. Beyond technology, we also understand the importance of considering your organization’s business processes with any major upgrade or implementation. These combined abilities position us to help you determine the technology and vendor that best aligns with your organization.

To evaluate the requirements and functionality of a GWD and/or mobile as-builting application, we conduct a series of workshops to understand your current processes and technology landscape. Reviewing your implementation logistics and technology considerations helps us understand where you are currently and how we can get you where you want to go.

We can also assist with the vendor selection process. Our methodologies for evaluating vendors and software have evolved with the industry, which allows us to deliver tangible, applicable results. Using our custom-fit vendor selection models, we assess each vendor’s ability to meet your organization’s unique needs. The results of this assessment can be used as a guide with choosing a vendor or building out request for proposal (RFP) requirements.

To build the RFP, our teams work together at the onset to develop your technical requirements and bid specification for a full solution implementation. We can also assist with recommending bid participants and coordinating vendor demonstrations.
