Consulting Sessions

Defining the key requirements with our Consulting teams

Before implementation can begin, our consulting team must ensure your business requirements align with the steps required to set up, configure, design, and build your site.

Working with our consultants to get the best results

During this stage of the project, our experts provide consulting to ensure that your digital workplace plan aligns with the implementation and build of your digital workplace. Our consultants perform three types of consulting sessions with the appropriate stakeholder groups:

  1. Strategic consulting
  2. Solution consulting
  3. Design consulting

It is imperative that your teams are prepared before these sessions and you have staff with the right skills and experience take part. Consulting sessions are generally 45 to 90 minutes in length over the phone. Sessions can be also done on-site as requested. 

Note: The exact number of consulting sessions and type of consulting completed with the support of Igloo experts may differ depending on the package and services you've purchased.
