Before a single product is selected, we define and document your required Workflow, Outcomes, and Economic Objectives. This process builds a clear roadmap that enables an unparalleled ability to evaluate solutions without bias for anything other than your objectives. We avoid the pitfalls of focusing on a specific manufacturer too early in the process and designing with blinders on.
The first and most important step towards realizing the vision you have for your project is to analyze every aspect of your existing Workflow and Process. We identify everything that works and does not work to ensure we maximize the effectiveness of all solutions without damaging those aspects that are most important to you.
Birns and Sawyer is made up of the most talented individuals in our industry. We design and engineer reliable, robust, budget-conscious solutions that provide an upgrade path for future growth.
Project management is where Birns and Sawyer truly excels. We have developed several processes and tools to ensure your project is correctly managed to complete the integration to your satisfaction. We are well organized with a series of defined processes and open communication when managing the project. The entire project is mapped out in our project management software with every step and resource planned down to the hour.
Installation and Structure Cabling
We build upon strong design and engineering principles and take great pride in performing the highest quality work. Every cable is labeled properly, crimped and soldered using industry-standard tools. Cables are tightly and neatly dressed in the racks and wire troughs with service loops for easy access and maintenance. At the completion of the install, every cable and connector is tested to assure quality and reliability. Structured cabling runs through a building or across your facility. The backbone cabling that supports your facility, connecting your network room to all other rooms throughout a facility.
Besides cables, structured cabling solutions includes racks, network cabinets, hardware ports and other components. Each part has to be thoughtfully designed so that it works but is also ‘future-proof’ for later expansions and upgrades. Important decisions must be made on the types of cables used, structure cable components- patch panels, switchers, trunk cables, and the design of subsystems throughout the facility.
Commission & Testing
Typically, other integrators use different staff for configuring and testing your systems (completely different from the staff that designed and engineered your system). Our team leaders for design and engineering are also the ones that work on configuration and testing. The team understands the workflow, the engineering, the cabling path and all the specified equipment. The end result is a fully tested and configured system, as planned for in the master design.
The integrator needs to be the coach when training your staff. Birns and Sawyer training teams do just that. They understand the workflow and how each step in the workflow affects the next step(s). We coach your team to master the systems we integrate.
Service & Support
Birns and Sawyer is there for you to provide long-term support for your system. Depending upon the support package you choose, we offer a range of options for you. We understand that your business relies on this infrastructure continuously and our goal is to make sure that it is operating smoothly. As a leading Systems Integrator, we have had tremendous responsibilities supporting some of the most complex environments in our industry. As a result, we have developed what is considered the best customer support program in the business.
