Implementing a GIS program can be daunting, and often the hardest part is knowing where to begin. WithersRavenel brings clarity and guidance no matter what stage of the process a client is at, and no matter what kind of GIS architecture they need—from a single ArcGIS Desktop user to a complex network built on ArcGIS for Server and ArcSDE.
We start each GIS implementation effort with a needs assessment to see what system the client currently uses, what data they have, and how they anticipate using their GIS on a daily basis. Through this assessment, we uncover what hardware, software, and licenses the client needs now and what resources they may need to achieve future goals. Then we work with the client to create an action plan to inform their purchasing, implementation, and training decisions. Finally, we provide comprehensive GIS design, software setup, integration with work order systems, and technical support to see that our clients’ GIS programs are a success.
