The new WiFi-system had to be fully integrated into the existing voice system. Acceptance testing had to be repeated under closed conditions.

German Service Operator, Management Board
Location
Hamburg, Düsseldorf (Germany)
Abstract

Our client was not happy since journal reviews and customer complaints showed an inadequate network quality. The management board reacted promptly by setting up a project for network quality improvement. The idea was to retrieve network parameter, e.g. dropped-, noisy- and blocked-call rates, from the active network and analyse it. This was the basis to install methods and provisions to tackle each issue. At the same time a longtime and detailed reporting for network quality was installed.  As such we pre-checked data records from app. 15.000 base station per network region. These were prepared and put together centrally as quality data. In parallel, we coordinated the definition of target and critical values. All corrective actions were proved if effective.

Abstract

The object was to negotiate frame contracts for the provision of leased lines and dark fibre with all relevant leased line providers in Germany in the course of the UMTS-network building. The first project step was to draft a standard contract for bandwidth and dark fibre as a basis for negotiation. The draft was developed in co-ordination with all departments affected by the agreements such as fixed network planning, system technology, purchase, operation and legal. Furthermore the scope for the subsequent negotiation meetings with network operators was fine tuned with each department. The next step was the actual meeting with the carrier to negotiate and conclude the contract. This was done in co-operation and consultation with the responsible member of staff of each department and in adherence to the defined rooms to negotiate. The internal and external project controlling, contract management and reporting was secured by member of staff of Solutions Factory situated at the client’s headquarter.

Abstract

As part of the process analysis of the network operator’s existing spare part logistics, it was determined that in addition to extensive adjustments to the process chain, the introduction of logistics software tailored to the specific needs of the network operator was required. The requirements were specified on the basis of the changed process chain. As part of a market analysis, a suitable provider for the implementation of the software solution was selected and the entire process from adaptation to integration of the new software was accompanied. The users were trained with individually created documents. The initial inventory was planned and carried out.

Due to the fact that with all system technology suppliers and leased line providers service agreements had been agreed upon, it was necessary to monitor the performances delivered. The adherence to the agreements was to be checked automatically on the basis of contractually defined key point indicators such as availability or time to repair. For this purpose a concept “vendor reporting / claim management” was developed including process definitions, tool specifications and requirements for reporting.

Own Order
Location
Hamburg (Germany)
Abstract

The operation of the company’s own bar and pub “BONOBO’S” required a PC-based cash register solution. For this purpose, an appropriate standard cash register software was selected in a first step and adapted to the actual needs our catering business. For electronic credit card processing, an online interface to the major credit card providers was set up via a regional data center. Via a specially developed bi-directional interface, the cash register software was integrated directly into the company’s own inventory management system (inventory, purchasing, bookkeeping), thus creating an integrated overall solution for the catering business. This system can be scaled from one cash desk to up to 100 cash desks to be used at the same time.
Just slighly oversized but it work splendidly!
