NoHow Inc. prefers
to visit your project, On Site. Evaluation of the current system
or configuration of a new system is performed. We also provide information
and price quotations for customers that do not feel an On Site visit
would benefit the project.
If sensors or acquisition systems are
in use, we inventory what is working and what isn't. We interview
personnel that will oversee the project and discuss the infinite
possibilities that there are with hardware and software. Often times
in large operations, we interview other departments, (i.e. Information
Systems, Marketing, Administration, etc.), to evaluate how they
can benefit from the data. If your project requires software development,
we will include pricing and screen shots in the report.
One goal in our projects is automation
of the data stream into the database. The programming at NoHow Inc.
integrates with not only LAN's, and WAN's, but also integrates with
any Internet distribution requirements that your project might need.
After the visit, a detailed report is
compiled. A quote with labor, the required hardware and software,
is supplied to you. There is no contract in place that requires
you to complete the project with NoHow Inc.. We charge a daily fee,
plus travel expenses for the On Site visit. The cost of creating
the report is included in our fee. This allows our customers the
freedom to perform the project In-House. If this the chosen
route, the report functions as a guide for the project. The years
of experience we have, make the On Site visit a very cost effective
approach. The alternative is struggling through the infinite amount
of options available, and possibly making incorrect decisions. We've
been active in this field for enough years, we've probably already
made the mistakes you're likely to make.
We are actively involved with day to
day operations in many different applications. We are very aware
of cost effective solutions. We also realize the importance of having
reliable data acquisition systems to help make informed decisions
within your operation on a day to day, hour to hour, basis.
Our main goals with installing, and/or
upgrading any project are:
Compile a list of hardware and software that is necessary to achieve
the goals of the project.
Evaluate the data collection process, and redistribution of the
data, to meet all operations needs.
Automate all data transfer processes to eliminate users having
to spend hours making the data useful.
Review all the equipment that is currently in use. Decide how
much of the equipment can be repaired and upgraded.
Review the computer(s) that will used in the project.
If LAN or WAN deployment of the data stream is required, evaluation
of the network(s) is made.
If Internet deployment of the data stream is required, configuration
options are presented.
