Getting started

An engagement with S3Edge starts with an initial phone call or email.  We’ll follow up with a  web conference call or face-to-face meeting to discuss the key business objectives for the system and provide recommendations for the approach to be taken.

S3Edge will then develop and present a draft statement of work that includes:

  • recommendations for technology and hardware devices to be used (readers and scanners, tags, mobile devices, etc.)
  • the proposed solution architecture
  • a draft project timeline with key milestones and deliverables
  • an estimate of the total project cost including software licenses, professional services, hardware devices and tags and ongoing annual support

Once finalizes, the statement of work provides the basis for a set of business agreements that are put in place before proceeding with the project kickoff.
