Needs Assessment & Implementation Planning
EI Technologies’ GIS consultants thoroughly evaluate our clients’ needs for a GIS program. They will conduct comprehensive assessments of software, hardware, data, staffing, and management requirements from both an enterprise and department-by-department basis. This information helps our clients gain an in-depth perspective on the value of implementing GIS solutions that address their administrative, financial, and operational needs.

EI Technologies’ proven process is a cost-effective way for organizations to understand how to leverage GIS technology and enhance their organizational performance. The process begins with onsite interviews of end users, technologists, and managers. Interviews are followed up with telephones to verify and validate interview information. EI Technologies’ consultants then submit our preliminary assessment for review and acceptance. The final reports are delivered orally and in writing to the GIS steering committee.
When EI Technologies completes a needs assessment and implementation plan for your organization, you will know precisely how an enterprise GIS will help your organization make better decisions, quickly. We will also educate you on your software, hardware, networking, applications, and training requirements for implementing a viable enterprise GIS infrastructure. And we will present our cost estimates for implementing that program in one, two or three years. Our implementation plans typically call for multi-year phased implementation of software, applications, hardware, processes, and staffing. Our goal is match your objectives to the best technical, most cost-effective, and long-term solution for your agency.
