Our Project Managers are Prince2® qualified to Practitioner level. We use this predominantly as a basis for our control mechanisms. Our Risk Management Strategy handles Risk, Assumptions, Issues & dependencies. Escalation plans are in force from initiation to closure. As part of our quality control mechanisms, we pride ourselves on clarity & reporting, this is very effective for Stakeholder Management. For larger deployments we provide real-time access to project progress, ensuring customers have visibility to deliverables.
Process Driven – we start with the end in mind. What does success look like? We'll map the process from here and use our blueprint for success which is derived from decades of experience.
Approach – Once we've proved the concept, we move to pilot stage. Refining strategic deployment support, before making the shift into full delivery mode. We ensure strategic alignment with the business case and change management. Lessons learned are incorporated into all future projects to make sure what works is enhanced and what does not is redesigned.
Our Sensor Management Dashboard - Sensor MD™ monitors the health of your deployed sensors. Know which sensors go-off line and where they are with pin-point accuracy. Geolocation, Firmware Version, Network Point and Height can all be reported for each sensor as soon as it's off-line. Designed as a low cost health check solution, Sensor MD can also be aligned with other IoT devices - to help manage and maximise your investment in these technologies. We even use Augmented Reality solutions to help you locate IoT assets on large sites!
ASH can be engaged to design, deploy & support people counting sensors in disparate environments for complex projects. Hand in glove with our Consultancy offer, our people tracking solutions are tailor made to analyze the Brick & Mortar environment for you. We take the most appropriate technology following detailed surveys and create Metric Map & DPD right for your space. We then track event / object stream data so you have the intel you need to analyze the behaviour in that environment. When it comes to making business decisions - you need the most accurate data to get it right. You can count on ASH to design your solution and deliver the results.
Our Technical Services approach is a differentiator for ASH. This team has evolved alongside our service offer for over a decade. It was created to fulfil a gap which was identified through PMO’s lessons learned process. The team are involved cradle to grave on all projects.
The Design Team sits within Tech Services. These multi-skilled resources are proficient in the implementation of all technologies we deploy. Team members are typically Cisco certified with build & maintenance expertise. They've served in the field or PMO so they know the pitfalls and how to support real-world rather than text book issues.
When was the last time you audited your people counters? ASH offers a full audit service to ensure your metrics are not compromised over time. Know your sensors are online and reporting the data you need with our pro-active quality assurance process.
At ASH, Field Services teams are multi-skilled. They are proficient in structured cabling. Those same Technicians will also perform device installation and commissioning. We ring-fence the best team to meet your deployment needs and ensure they are aligned with project objectives and deliverables.
Our Field Service Managers help create and implement risk management strategies that really work. If something does go wrong, they are best equipped to resolve and succeed.
Our reach and capability, with the level of expertise offered on-site, is unrivalled. We have extensive coverage throughout the UK, USA, Canada & Australia.
