    We follow the Project Management Concept of Review, Plan, Design, Implement, and Operate (RPDIO) Model, which is a cyclical approach to managing projects. 

    1. Review:

    • This phase focuses on learning your business objectives and existing information from past projects.
    • The team analyzes documentation, identifies successes and failures, and gathers feedback from stakeholders.
    • These learnings are then used to improve future projects by informing the planning phase.

    2. Plan:

    • Based on the project goals and the insights from the review phase, the team develops a detailed project plan.
    • This plan outlines the project scope, timeline, budget, resources needed, communication strategies, and risk management strategies.
    • The plan serves as a roadmap for successful project execution.

    3. Design:

    • This phase involves translating the project plan into actionable steps.
    • The team creates detailed designs for deliverables, defines tasks and their dependencies, assigns resources, and develops quality control procedures.
    • Depending on the project, this might involve creating prototypes, user interface (UI) mockups, or system architecture diagrams.

    4. Implement:

    • This phase is where the project comes to life.
    • The team executes the plan and designs, working on assigned tasks and deliverables.
    • Project managers closely monitor progress, address any issues that arise, and communicate updates to stakeholders.
    • Quality control procedures are implemented to ensure deliverables meet the defined standards.

    5. Operate:

    • Once the project is completed and deliverables are delivered, the project transitions to the operation phase.
    • This phase focuses on ensuring the project’s ongoing success.
    • The team might provide training for users of the delivered product or service, address any post-launch issues, and monitor performance metrics.
    • In some cases, the operating phase might involve ongoing maintenance and updates to the project deliverables.

    Benefits of the RPDIO Model:

    • Continuous Improvement: The cyclical nature of the model encourages learning and improvement from past projects.
    • Focus on Stakeholders: Reviewing past performance and planning future projects consider stakeholder feedback.
    • Structured Approach: The defined phases provide a clear roadmap for project execution.

    Client Testimonials

    We opened a new law firm in Pensacola and we need everything and we were a little overwhelmed. Gulf Coast IT Solutions came in took the time to understand our businesses needs and wants. They started with installing and configuring our cloud based voice system and voicemail. Next they built our website and social media profiles. Once that was complete they optimized everything with SEO, as well as Google my business. They now manage everything for us and run our social media
    When I opened Grapes Wine Cafe & Restaurant in 2022 I was a little overwhelmed and needed everything. Gulf Coast IT came in and designed and built our website. They then integrated it into our Square PoS to allow online ordering, delivery, and E-commerce. In addition, they created all of our Social Media Profiles and mange the content creation and posting on our behalf. I couldn't be more pleased.
    We purchased Chill Restaurant in November 2020. We tried three other IT/SEO/Marketing companies before we started using Gulf Coast IT Solutions. I wish we would have found them earlier. The service we get matches exactly what they promised. The other three companies made huge promises but never followed thru. We would recommend Gulf Coast IT Solutions to anyone looking to improve their online presence. In our 30 years in the hospitality business, this is the best company we have ever used. Five stars!!!!!!!
