According to a Standish Group CHAOS report, only 29 percent of software development projects are successful, 52 percent fall short of objectives or overrun their budgets—and 19 percent are outright failures.
Many organizations realize only after a technology implementation is completed that their project would have benefitted from Project Management and Quality Assurance (PM/QA).
NYSTEC’s experienced project managers are certified through the Project Management Institute, providing clients with a process-oriented PM/QA approach. We can assist with planning your technology acquisition, defining requirements, writing RFPs, and evaluating vendors. We can help you manage your IT contractor, making sure your vendor adheres to standards for deliverables, applications development, testing, and review processes—and confirming that delivered products and services meet all performance requirements.
When it comes to managing a complex technology project, there’s no need to go it alone. NYSTEC can help.
A U.S. city sought to automate its capabilities for water meter reading to improve billing accuracy and enable customers to better manage their water usage.
NYSTEC assisted with implementing a new Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) of radio transmission units linked to water meters sending readings every six hours to rooftop receivers networked across the city. We provided project management and monitoring for the system buildout, along with designing a field Radio Frequency (RF) measurement device to test the transmission units. In addition, we designed a unit-testing facility.
The new automated system has enabled both consumers and the city to cut costs and monitor water usage more efficiently. The AMI system, which lets property owners’ view and manage their water consumption via an online application, also sends readings to a computerized billing system—resulting in an increase of billing accuracy.
