Multiple FOX professionals have been involved in consulting, design and installations for smart communities and buildings since 1982.

 

They have spoken at numerous government municipal industry events on next generation cities, house, communities and automation.

 

Managing acquisitions and implementations of vendor technology installations is becoming more difficult and time consuming.

 

With the advancement of technologies including unified communications, it is getting even more difficult!

 

​Successful technology  installations take a combination of IT, telecom, network and vendor management skills that most organizations either don't have, or don't have enough resources internally to take on "one more project."

 

We have been designing, implementing and managing complex technology solutions for over 25 years, using our structured, disciplined project management techniques. 

 

We bring current technical knowledge from our in-house use of next generation communications solutions as well as best practices from other clients.

 

All the while, we work beside your procurement, financial, customer service and technology staff leveraging our experience and tools, transferring knowledge to deliver successful results.

 

We leverage our structured project management, procurement and processes, automated RFP analysis tools, vendor relationships and experience so that the acquisitionand implementation projects are successful for all parties and achieve the expected results.

Benefits of working with FOX GROUP:

 

  • Savings - We generally save many times our fees on larger projects from our technology knowlege, our ability
    to compare and leverage price knowledge and our vendor negotiations expertise. This combination helps us
    ensure our client projects are installed successfully on time and on budget, every time.

 

  • Technology solutions that will work as the vendors promised

 

  • Supported and managed by the right vendor and internal IT organization
