System design is the most straightforward way to communicate the different parameters of the project to the client, in-house team members, subcontractors, and other trades. Concise designs provide a guide for the project installers and team members or subcontractors to follow, ensuring accurate and efﬁcient project execution. Unfortunately, some technology managers lack the in-house engineering resources to complete system design, and so they either skip this phase or assign it to another firm. Subcontracting this important work can be costly, while foregoing system design, altogether, can ruin a project before it begins. If you include a project design in the proposal, you’ll clearly communicate to internal and external team members with your attention to detail, improve the readability and aesthetic of every proposal, and help clients visualize the results of the completed project. Detailed and accurate system designs can be the differentiator that solidifies the accuracy and speed of the project’s completion. IAD simpliﬁes the process by reducing the time and work required to create designs. Improving efﬁciencies during the design phase will result in reduced errors and assurance that budgetary expectations are met.
