Halo Group consultants bring value to companies through projects such as:
- working with an international company to create a standardized global viewpoint on metrics. By utilizing enterprise warehouse data and presenting it in a meaningful format, we use predictive analysis to assist the company with goal measurement, contract sales measurement and account servicing metrics.
- assisting an automotive manufacturer with database production and maintenance programming tasks. In addition, we migrated flat files and processes between handheld devices and database management systems.
- helping executives of a worldwide manufacturer receive real-time updates on the global status of their production plants. We do this through an internal software application. This includes managing data collection and traceability from the shop floor machinery, collecting maintenance software for those machines, creating reporting tools for end users including supervisors, engineers, quality, materials and executives, and setting up new machines to be seamlessly introduced to the production environment. By forging new processes and producing repeatable results, we help departments better understand and interpret the behaviors and quality/production results of the company.
- supporting seven different industry verticals to implement security programs that protect their data as well as their customer data. This requires a balance of IT security and business acumen to align to industry compliance. In addition, we follow regulations and consider unique risks associated with each industry. For example, we process credit cards for our retail clients. This requires PCI compliance, while healthcare clients need to be HIPAA compliant. In addition to technical expertise, Halo Group consultants use their business background to help define the correct security technologies to mitigate risk and properly implement the security technology roadmap.
