The three-day site assessment is suitable for medium-sized sites or more complex sites. The three consecutive days is broken into three half-day workshops and three half days that cover data harvesting, assessment, solution analysis and report writing.
The final report assesses the site requirements against the current GovCMS functionality and makes a recommendation for which service offering, SaaS or PaaS, is the best fit.
Cost: $18,800 + GST per site (see breakdown below)
Our three-day site assessment includes three half-day, on-site workshops. The highly collaborative and interactive workshops are run with key stakeholders to understand site requirements and viability. A final one-hour presentation is delivered at a time that suits you (usually conducted remotely).
