Multi-site technology rollouts can leave you feeling stressed about missing go-live dates and going over budget. Project managers and coordinators can reduce this stress by being your single point of contact to manage the planning, surveying, and implementation of your next rollout. So, how can a project manager improve your next rollout?
- Your Single Point of Contact
Have you ever had a vendor that had multiple different points of contact? This can be confusing and cause information to not be relayed to the people who really need it. Project Managers/Coordinators act as your single point of contact so that you don’t have to repeat your message to different people, potentially causing confusion and discrepancies.
- Informing Techs About The Plan And Any Challenges
Consistency is key to a successful multi-site rollout, that’s why techs need to be briefed before they arrive on site. After you and the team your vendor put together discuss the game plan for your next rollout, project managers relay the plan to techs before they arrive on-site and announce any challenges they might come across.
- Scheduling Tech Arrivals & Completion Times
Timing is paramount, and because you don’t want installs to interfere with normal operations, your Project Manager/Coordinator will work with their technicians to make sure everyone is at the right place at the right time.
- Purchasing & Delivering Equipment
While some rollouts only require that technicians have the basic tools they already carry, other installs can require specialized equipment and hardware. Your Project Manager/Coordinator will work out the shipping and receiving with you and your team to work out the most optimal way to ship these items and more importantly to make sure tools and equipment are on-site on time.
- Review & Improve Efficiency
Project Managers/Coordinators play a crucial role in developing the relationships between vendors and their clients. Everything doesn’t always go as smoothly in reality when compared to your ideal vision. That’s why you should review every rollout with your PM team and see what can be done differently to improve efficiency for the next sites.
