Project Management

WEI can help architect solutions unique to your technology needs and support them with services provided by the finest certified project managers and engineers in the business. Large discount warehouses and distributors don’t have the hands-on approach required to deliver customized solutions. Having a box show up on your dock at the end of the project process with your new technology inside is not a valuable model.

After assessing your environment and developing a solution, a project plan is created by our project management organization. WEI will collaboratively establish a schedule with your company to ensure all critical milestones are hit on time. WEI’s courteous and attentive project managers will also assist in organizing services, ordering necessary products that best fit your needs, documenting scope changes, and modifying your solution plan if needed. Best practices are used by our project managers to ensure that project objectives are achieved on time and on budget.

WEI methodology includes all of the steps needed to make sure your solution is exactly the way you need it and that it’s ready to operate on the day it arrives.

Staging (Rack & Stack)

Equipment can be staged and powered on at WEI for extended time periods when required (data center builds, consolidation, moves, etc.). Regardless of the project, WEI can provide access to equipment remotely, or on-premises, and offer training/implementation services for configuration.

Full solution stacks can be built out and delivered as complete, integrated cabinets. This process includes racking of all gear, complete cabling based on desired structured cabling schemes and best practices, and full power and interconnectivity testing. The complete cab will be labeled to the custom specifications you need—all with pristine cabling work and meticulous attention to detail.

Integration & Testing

The Integration and Testing Lab at WEI helps to keep your costs down in several quantifiable ways. Equipment is unpacked, integrated, and tested in its entirety as the working solution you requested. At this time, all OS software and licenses are also integrated. This way, there is no chance of a DOA situation or subsequent delays that could follow. Before shipping, all the components of your solution are audited for the latest revisions, versions, and serial numbers. The revision matrix is coordinated and updated to reflect the manufacturer’s best practices. This eliminates costly headaches and service calls in the future. After burning in, your solution is ready for shipment and delivery.

All parts and interoperating equipment are integrated at WEI’s integration Lab. All special requests are accommodated, including:

  • OS versions
  • Image loading
  • Firmware revisions
  • Extended burn-in testing
  • Special cabling

Imaging & scripting

Loading custom images for workstations and portable products bogs down your technical staff, reducing innovation. WEI offers custom imaging solutions designed to fit your exact parameters. You’ll receive your workstations, laptops, tablets, mobile phones and devices, and thin clients ready to deploy in the field. New employees will ramp up more quickly and your current employees will achieve new levels of productivity with their refreshed computer that is ready-to-go, containing the same familiar applications and productivity tools. Creating an “out of box” experience that is customized is critical in what WEI strives to provide its clients with.

WEI provides gold-standard custom imaging and scripting services including the following:

  • Deploy custom operating system images on multiple device types
  • Help design your business’ custom OS image on multiple device types
  • Supply device types including laptops, desktops, servers, and tablets—of all manufacturers and types
  • Maintain your custom imaging solution

Additional technical configuration needs can be added including loading IPs, adding OSs, naming and labeling servers, and configuring any logical components of the solution stack.

Asset tracking

All equipment that goes through the WEI integration center is surveyed. A capture is done of all configurations and layouts, serial numbers, firmware levels, revision levels, and warranty start and stop dates. All of that data is archived and can be delivered to the customer in any desired format including customized reports or secure online portals.

WEI will collaborate with your company to produce customized, winning strategies. It is our aim to offer services that help your project run as smoothly as possible. In fact, WEI’s proprietary intelligent asset tracking application, Smart IT Tag, was created as part of an innovate asset tracking solution we developed for a major technology manufacturer.

Intelligent Asset Tracking with WEI’s SmartITtag

WEI’s SmartITtag is a unique asset tag that digitally tells the complete story of the device by tracking information such as warranty, configuration, serial number, PO number, deployment date, past tickets, etc. all from a small data matrix sticker. This application easily links data to other data center applications, putting mobile productivity into the hands of the local user.
