Retail Technology Deployment Audit / Optimization
Why Choose OPL Technologies?
There are many other retail technology deployment companies out there that will give you a retail deployment audit, we get it. However, there are a lot of things these other companies overlook that we don’t. In fact, as a company we believe that a retailer’s technology deployment is only as good as its audit and/or implementation. Now you might be thinking to yourself, “If I already have a retail technology deployment plan, why do I need to worry about an audit or optimization?”. That’s a fair question, but the fact of the matter is that some plans have some issues that might slip through the cracks, meanwhile a plan that is audited or optimized won’t have those same cracks and your retail deployment of technology will go much smoother.
Deployment Plan Script
One example would be a plan without a script. Other companies who specialize in the deployment of technology do not have plans with scripts. We know this may sound silly, but scripts are needed with plans of deployment. Employees aren’t perfect and they can make an honest mistake in forgetting something you tell them. However, if you provide them with a script, they are less likely to make a mistake and in turn, follow the steps of deployment in the script to a T. Every single plan we offer has a script so you can rest assured you made the right choice with your technology deployment optimization.
Scope of Work
To optimize technology deployment, you must have a fully defined scope of work. Too many times retailers and other “technology deployment planners” fail to properly define the scope of work. At best they place someone in charge and determine how many technicians might be needed. This is simply not enough. A proper retail technology deployment audit will make sure that actions are aligned with expectations and that fiscal controls are built in so that your company doesn’t go over the budget set in place.
In fact, the best way to optimize the deployment of technology is to focus on the who, what, when, where, and how. Now depending on the complexity of the deployment of technology you have in mind, this can be a pretty scary task…but hey, that’s why we’re here.
Retail Technology Deployment Optimization
As a retail technology deployment audit company, it’s important to follow the technology trends in the industry. That being said, over here at OPL technologies we focus on 3 key factors with your technology deployment optimization. When optimizing your deployment plan, we make sure that you 1, contact and work with your vendor on implementation and data management. This ensures that all your data will have it best chance of being saved on the changeover with little to no loss. 2, we make sure you appoint a champion that serves as a middleman between your team and the vendor to make sure both sides are being held accountable. 3, and lastly, we make sure you have a means of continually collecting data during this process so that you will be able to identify what’s working and what isn’t during the deployment process and make changes as need.
Go ahead and contact us today! We look forward to discussing how we can use technology trends to help with your deployment of technology!
