Project Management

RTI Broadcast specialises in system and package implementation project management. An important part of maintaining any business’ competitiveness is keeping their Telecoms & IT systems up to date, providing the types of services their customers require.

Very often this means selecting new systems from suppliers the company has not dealt with before and implementing solutions which may be unique within the industry.

Although a successful company does not become successful without having the skilled staff on board to maintain and develop their systems, the skills required to manage a new implementation project are not always found in-house.

RTI is capable of handling all elements of a Broadcast, Telecoms, IT or other technical implementation project including:

  • Scope - understanding the scope of the project and its impact on other projects and the business as a whole.
  • Budget - the creation of an initial budget and tracking of the budget throughout the life of the project.
  • User Requirements - gathering of user requirements and acceptance by the business and other stakeholders.
  • Product Evaluation - informs the user requirements and presents opportunity for short-listing.
  • Product Selection - assistance in the process of selecting the supplier and the product to meet the user requirements. RTI can also assist with contract negotiations ensuring expectations and milestones are included in the contract.
  • Project Plan - determining the timescales of the whole project and monitoring progress throughout the project's lifecycle.
  • Programme Office - responsible for project tracking and reporting, particularly important where there are multiple teams working towards a common goal.
  • Supplier Relations - managing the ongoing relationship with the supplier ensuring a relationship of trust is developed between the client and the supplier.
  • Implementation Management - management of all suppliers of IT and Telecom services and systems and liaison with other disciplines involved in the relocation project from the design and build team to in-house resources responsible for infrastructure elements such as network, servers, cabling, ongoing support etc.
  • Data Migration - very often a critical part of a new service implementation is the migration of client data from the old system to the new. Determination of whether old and new systems can run in parallel using the same data source, if not, managing the risks associated with migration.
  • Training - co-ordination of supplier training for users of the new systems and the in-house teams and external trainers responsible for support and training.
  • Go-live Day Support - management and support of the first live day ensuring the business as usual support teams are in a position to fully support the new installation.
  • Project Wind Up - reconciliation of invoices against works contracted. This activity normally extends beyond the last live date.
  • Documentation - paper and electronic as-built documentation is completed including confirming warranty and maintenance agreements.
