Our Process – Umbrella Technologies
We also need to know what has and has not worked in the past, what did or did not meet your set of expectations, and what you would like to see done better or differently.
In order for the team at Umbrella Technologies to fully understand your needs and goals, every concern and expectation should be clearly laid out. This understanding allows us to efficiently and correctly align procedures and technologies for the right path to success.
If you currently have a security system in place, Umbrella Technologies will take careful audit of your existing technology infrastructure.
We document the limitations and strengths of your system as well as cable routing. This greatly reduces labor costs as well as any potential issues with your security system.
Far too often existing security systems are simply disposed of, which is a costly and time-consuming mistake. Together, we can assess and leverage new technologies to maximize the existing investment in your security system.
We will conduct a thorough analysis and conduct an onsite security assessment which will include your team to provide additional input.
A walk-through of the facility allows us to survey and identify new security camera locations, doors or entrances that are to be secured, and potential network infrastructure threats or concerns, and to analyze current burglar and fire alarm systems.
In this phase, we make both product and software service recommendations, always with the goal of matching the best technologies suitable for your specific needs. We then compile a complete scope-of-work.
Before any products are installed, we produce a documented schedule of installation, specifications for all products, customized engineering drawings, and a demonstration of the effectiveness of all products.
After a design review, we submit a proposal that will itemize each product, software license, and service to be performed.
Depending on the scope of the project, Umbrella Technologies will deliver either daily or bi-weekly written progress reports throughout the installation. This will continue until the completion date.
We provide this transparent communication so you can monitor the pulse of progress without distraction from your day-to-day duties.
It is our responsibility to ensure that you and your team are fully capable of operating any and all technology we install.
We create solutions that are easy for you and your team to learn to use and implement providing you with complete independence once the project is completed.
Review and Finalization
Upon completion of the identified scope-of-work, Umbrella Technologies will work with you in the field to make sure everything is to your satisfaction.
We never bill for anything until you provide approval of the project.
