DC Water was utilizing a nearly twenty-year-old CIS and recognized it needed to be replaced. DC water engaged AAC to assist with an assessment of their needs and lead them through the procurement of a new CIS. DC Water was interested in a cloud solution. Through the NavigateOne™ process, DC Water evaluated a number of CIS solutions and system integrators and selected VertexOne. Using our proprietary NavigateOne™ Statement of Work framework, AAC assisted DC Water in the negotiation of the final SOW that was the foundation for the implementation project which included the implementation strategy, phase gates, and clearly defined deliverables. In support of DC Water’s project team, AAC provided PMO and other Project Leadership services. DC Water is live and in production with VertexOne. CS Week recognized DC Water as the Level I Best CIS Implementation during CS Week’s 2019 Expanding Excellence Awards ceremony on April 11, 2019. area.
