Key Steps that Supported Project Goals

  • Assessed needs and practices of affected public radio users
  • Established a stakeholder team with deep understanding of the new system – infrastructure design, talk groups, fleet map, scanning, roaming, private calls, interoperability features, etc. – to oversee testing during roll-out, using data developed during the project to optimize system utility
  • Created policies, procedures, standards and protocols for radio system communications including compliance with regional-level requirements
  • Developed a detailed, step-by-step template for each group to manage its migration to the 800 MHz radios and network
  • Acquired training materials for use as models from other municipalities with similar 800 MHz systems
  • Designed web-based, function-specific operational surveys for five service areas, to document current levels of radio performance, resources, communication and training needs
  • Implemented a website and survey software for use in future web-administered surveys of county personnel

“… Alliant was the only organization I worked with that took the time to understand our organization, knew how to bring value without spending a fortune, and delivered more than pricey white paper – they stayed to implement their concepts. However, the most important feature of Alliant’s work is in the measured performances they deliver. Visualize being on the client’s premises, implementing the idea you just sold them as “the solution” and having the faith that the measurements achieved will deliver the results you just promised.”
