Wireless Concept Phase
During the Market/Feasibility Study phase of a project, an idea or business opportunity is developed from the early conceptual stage into a business plan. At Engineering Associates, we rely on our clients to identify the opportunity and we provide the professional engineering, consulting and project management to investigate the idea and develop it into a realistic business plan. We typically work with our commercial clients on Market/Feasibility Studies.
During a Needs Assessment, Engineering Associates investigates the telecommunications requirements of an organization and assists the management team in identifying the level of end-user demand. We use our professional staff to interview command staff, system managers, service providers and end users to identify, quantify, and document user’s communication needs. In addition, we identify the possible impact of new technology on the organization with the goal of improving the safety, efficiency, and effectivemess of field resources. We typically offer these services to public safety and public service clients such as fire departments, law enforcement agencies, power distribution companies and utilities.
