Initial Consulting Engagements

Get started immediately with your ECM or capture project without the risk of a large, up-front commitment.

An Initial Consulting Engagement (ICE) is designed to provide you with a clear understanding of the requirements, time, and cost of the project.

The on-site discovery and process assessment is followed by a technical assessment resulting in a document and a project management plan—giving you full information to decide on next steps.

Three Levels of Initial Consulting Engagements:

Departmental Initial Consulting Engagement

Departmental

Utilize one product in the Zia solution suite (Alfresco/Ephesoft) and are generally in one location with minimal customization and external integrations.

Corporate Initial Consulting Engagement

Corporate

Generally require additional architectural components, more than two integrations, multiple geographic locations, and significant custom workflow development.

Enterprise Initial Consulting Engagement

Enterprise

Neither departmental or corporate in size, therefore requiring a custom quote.

Three Phases of ICE:

Review high-level goals, determine business requirements, and review application requirements and IT architecture. Discovery projects are typically completed in two weeks for departmental and three weeks for corporate level.

Technical review of your requirements by a Zia business analyst and ECM architect, covering deployment architecture, systems integrations, disaster recovery, high availability, and other technical requirements.

Typically this is completed in one week.
