We provide full range of smart grid services including:

​Program Management & Governance (PMO)

Effective  program management and governance is essential to achieve business  objectives such as real-time tracking of schedule, cost, and work  performance measurements. Our experienced team of PMI-certified  project/program managers use our proven tools, processes, and controls  required to effectively manage projects. We strive to achieve your  business objectives on time and within budget.

Vendor Selection/Management  

CCGroup360  will help you work with and manage multiple vendors. Our vendor  selection process ensures vendor products and services will  seamlessly integrate with your back end systems and applications. We  will work with you to develop SOW, SLA, SMA, etc. for selected vendors.  We also assist in quantifying business and technical requirements for  the project.

Risk Management

Using  our expertise, we can achieve timely resolutions of issues and even  proactively identify and assess these risks. We can also develop  contingency plans for  project risks. Our integrated approach toward  projects ranges from mitigating strategic risks to having a robust QA  process in place to manage outcomes. 
 

Business Process Optimization   

As  part of Business Process Optimization (BPO) we work with you to  align your organization's activities relating to people, process, and  technology closely with its long-term vision, business strategy, and  operational metrics.

Change Management

During  smart grid deployment program new issues/tasks are uncovered such as  workforce change requirements, meter-to-cast process improvement,  technology transformation, etc. We utilize proven change management  techniques to handle these challenges to ensure program success in this  dynamic environment.

Organizational Strategy and Performance

In  a time of ambiguity and complexity, we work closely with you to define  how organizational strategy relates to performance expectations.

Systems Integration

Utilities  need integrated end-to-end solutions to meet their unique needs. Our  utility industry experts start by understanding or defining the business  objectives and then developing a solution. This approach brings  together the various people, processes, and technology components to  achieve business goals. We help define the solution architecture  strategy and roadmap, create solution models, and deliver solutions and  software.
