The Fit Analysis
All custom or integration projects undertaken by CLI are required to undergo a “fit analysis.” The fit analysis is the result of an intense examination of the customer’s current business set-up and needs and it allows CLI to gain a better understanding of the customer’s unique business requirements and determine what, if any, applications will require custom design.
The Fit Analysis allows CLI to prepare a detailed Project Agreement with detailed fees and schedules. This specification document is the joint blueprint for the project. The document spells out the applications to be installed with the modifications required, the time frame for the project with agreed upon priorities and the costs associated with the assignment.
The end result is that the customer and CLI will both have a clear understanding of the scope of the work and the responsibilities of both companies to ensure it happens within the established time frame and within the agreed budget. CLI’s references support its commitment to these schedules and budgets.
