What is SMARTfit?
SMARTfit is a component of the SMARTspend program that answers the question “How can I complete a roll-out project cost effectively, with the right visibility?” It should be normal for clients and vendor partners to collaborate on the most effective way to execute a project. To accomplish this, we need to:
- Create a list of client intentions. Understand everything they need to accomplish as well as their goals.
- Prepare a couple of options that show the impact on price that adjusting the schedule, terms, and reporting can have.
- Establish a method for updates to be consistently delivered and a communication tree.
- Establish the process for handling schedule changes and other unexpected project obstacles.
This approach establishes the true partner relationship. Working through different delivery options with the right level of visibility helps clients spend their money better. Costs can come down by giving the vendor the ability to order materials effectively, built an effective schedule, and properly prepare the teams to complete the project.
