Business Solutions Analysis, Planning, and Design


Black Box provides development, strategy, and design solutions for businesses through infrastructure analysis and consultation. Our consultants analyze current technology and determine where and how improvements can be made. If no infrastructure exists, an analysis of other aspects of the business will determine the best design and implementation strategy for a new system. In both cases, Black Box can provide the correct solutions to implement the necessary technology.

Why It’s Valuable and How It’s Beneficial

Business development, strategy, and design is the best first step to take when preparing or improving any given venture. While having a perfect software, platform, or application is vital, it’s equally as important to understand market demand and expectations, your audience, and the processes and systems necessary to manage sales, marketing, support, maintenance, and ongoing development day-to-day. When your business strategy is as well defined as your development strategy, you significantly improve your own organizations ability to grow, to evolve, to ensure high quality products, services, and support - to succeed.

By relying on Black Box to meet your expectations and provide guaranteed deliverables, you also avoid common pitfalls, such as growing to death, not being able to acquire or retain clients, and being caught off guard by expected costs, unforeseen client expectations, and unnecessary additional work that drains your capacity, takes up too much of your time, and exhausts your staff.
