The coordination is necessary at integration projects. The essential parts of these tasks must be realized within early planning phases where the product range is not available respectively specified yet, e.g. the conception of a system or the creation of charge- and mandatory booklets.

Main Base for Avoiding Disputes

At selection- or formal procurement processes according to the legal rules the assessment of offers and procedures by neutral experts is an essential point to avoid contestations. A neutral documentation of incidents during the project supervision and the approval of IT-services, especially when detecting deficits, in a public certified form is advisable.
