Our Clients

Integration is 10% of the project cost and 75% of the risk.

Here's how we remove the risk.

1. Detailed Design & Documentation

2. Proactive Project Management

3. Nothing Leaves Enterprise Untested

Upfront design and documentation is the biggest driver of a project’s success. It is where lesser integrators will cut corners and where project outcomes begin to diverge from what a client needs. As a first step in any project we perform, EA drives collaboration with all available project stakeholders in order to ensure that all ideal outcomes of an automation project are considered and met. Through interactive workshopping, EA Engineer’s extract valuable process, operational, IT and business information in order to complete detailed system design. The final deliverables of this process are Functional Specification documents that detail almost every aspect of the control system to be built. These documents drive programming efficiency and allow for accurate task-level effort analysis, which drives accurate and predictable project schedules. They enable testing efforts which have a client approved criteria for being acceptable prior to deployment. Finally, they provide ongoing tools for operations and maintenance staff who need to learn and work with the new system.
A late project delivery or overruns on approved budgets can ruin an otherwise successful project. EA has developed state of the art tools and methodologies for tracking project status and costs in real time. In addition, we utilize simple but effective routines to inform clients ahead of requests for information. At EA the definition of being proactive is always having an eye on startup and delivery, and taking the necessary steps now to create the ideal end of project outcomes.

As the final stopgap to removing project risk, everything we do and develop is thoroughly tested prior to leaving our offices. Our promise to clients is that startup in the field will be about validating that the physical installation can execute the controls process defined during the design phase of a project. When EA arrives on site, we know the programming is 100% complete, and that it does what stakeholders have specified. As a result, startups are quick and smooth. This reduces costs associated with having multiple trades on site, and lost revenue from extended downtime.

EA doesn't maintain the lowest rates, and doesn't skip steps. The formula above is how we keep your total project and lifecycle costs lower than others while hiring the best talent and developing top tier solutions.
