Our Solutions & Services

As a professional solutions company, our team has expertise in and offers the following Solutions and Services:

Testing and Quality Assurance

With our experience in the software development field, CII can provide an extremely valuable third-party perspective, when brought in to test/QA another vendor’s software. System testing is fundamental to the quality of any software. Although many developers take short-cuts and settle for only testing their software during development (Alpha-Testing), we at CII always encourage our clients to include a distinct testing phase to any software project. This testing phase allows the system to be tested as a completed unit, and is usually done by someone other than the developer. In this manner, additional user feedback on the functionality and usability of the software can be integrated prior to initial release. Completion of the testing phase is accomplished through preliminary use by actual end users of the software in the real world conditions of the client's site (Beta-Testing)

Feasibility Studies

Prior to committing substantial resources to a given project, often clients want to obtain more data on the obstacles related to successfully completing the project. CII team members have experience serving in this “recon” type role. They can quickly and efficiently identify the primary and secondary “hot spots”, then prepare a Feasibility Report for the client. This report contains a ranked list of all the technical, logistical, and managerial problems associated with the proposed project. In addition, it provides preliminary estimates for cost and time.

Technical Documentation and Training Services

CII consultants have developed numerous user manuals, reference guides, and introductory training materials to accompany our custom software over the years. This experience has provided us with the ability to quickly generate production quality documents. Rather than hiring technical writers (who are often unfamiliar with the underlying technology) to extract information from developers, many of our clients simply have CII develop the supporting materials. CII consultants have become so good at this in fact, that many clients have engaged CII for the sole purpose of creating technical documentation and complete training programs.

Placement and Recruiting Service

Finding just the right person for a challenging technical staff position can be quite difficult. Standard placement services often provide overwhelming lists of “candidates,” however many of the resumes provided to the client firms are seldom worth reviewing. This is because the placement firms are not technical people and therefore cannot properly filter the resumes for the hiring managers. CII solves this problem for managers by taking a low volume, high quality approach. With our technical background, we can serve as a front-end filter for managers who don't want to spend their time reviewing every resume with “C” listed as a language.
