Whether designing a server room, planning an IT equipment upgrade or embarking on a full-scale data center build out, there are many crucial steps that go into successfully completing a project. Businesses that use in-house staff to act as project management risk making costly and time-consuming missteps. Between their existing daily business activities and managing the project plan, in-house staff can be easily overwhelmed with tasks. Should a misstep occur in the project plan, the business will typically incur increased costs and project delays, not to mention frustrated team members.

How Instor’s Project Management Works
Our sales team works with end users to first define the scope of the project – both from a technical standpoint and one that considers all the necessary resources. We then provide logistics management, which controls the timing of the project, ensuring that all necessary equipment arrives on site in time to keep the project schedule.
Project management allows a facilities manager and operators to focus on their own business instead of worrying about meetings, orders and implementing a project.
Once the scope of the project is determined, project managers coordinate all communication and efforts between the contractors, the hardware and software providers, and the end users. The project manager clearly defines the specific roles and responsibilities of each member of the entire team according to a schedule. This ensures that there are no overlooked steps while preventing the duplication of effort throughout the project duration.
The benefits of Instor’s Data Center Project Management include:
- Completing projects on schedule or before schedule whenever possible
- Reducing overall project costs
- Ensuring a more predictable and efficient outcome
- Getting a better solution “fit” the first time through better planning
- Mitigating risks before they occur
- Consistent and clear communication from a single-point source between clients, co-providers, manufacturers and contractors to provide project status reports and ensure project success
- Improved financial management by verifying materials, minimizing expedite fees, managing the schedule and resources to minimize overtime and other unexpected charges.
