Work With Us
Save Time. Save Money. Get Confidence. Get Clarity.
We offer our clients a comprehensive suite of business services that include: RFP Administration and assistance, Contract Negotiation, Strategic Sourcing, Telecom Expense Management (TEM), Technology Expense Assessment (which include a thorough review of all invoices to correct billing errors, eliminate services not being used, obtain best-in-class pricing, and expense reduction, contract auto-renew management), Technology Review/Conversion, Service Optimization, Project Management, Procurement Services, and Total Technology Lifecycle Management and Enhanced Escalation Support.
Our process is simple. We gather your "vitals" and nail down all the who's, what's, where's, when's, why's, and how's of your project, requirements - needs, wants, and desires. Then we sift through our Supplier Portfolio to find the right companies to evaluate. Once we line them up, together we'll learn more about who they are, how they work, and what they offer. We'll get some initial pricing to help set the stage and expectations, schedule meetings, introductions, and demos, and help you to narrow down the list of bidders. Once we've got a shortlist, we'll dig in deep and make sure they are able to deliver. Then we'll make them duke-it-out to ensure you get the best solution at the best price.
We sit on your side of the table throughout the entire process to ask the right questions and help you navigate the purchasing process. We can, of course, customize our program to fit your specific needs. Remember that all solutions acquired from companies in the Cloud 9 Supplier Portfolio get our low price guarantee, leveraged buying power of thousands of other clients, complimentary project management, ongoing account management, and enhanced escalation support services.
The more solutions you acquire from the companies in the Cloud 9 Supplier Portfolio, the more we can help you.
Because, it's all about YOU!
Let’s face it, we’re all too busy. You probably just don’t have the time to mess with a new tech project, let alone go through contract renewals every three to five years. And, should that agreement slip and auto-renew... again... then what? Who knows what you'll be paying. There's a reason most of those agreements are only a three-year term. Things change and usually in your favor, but only if you do something about it. For new projects and initiatives, it just gets far too daunting to keep up and think about all the details, minutia, and implications of going one way over another. And every time you go to the next step, there are another set of "branching" implications and details to manage. We take care of all of that for you.
The better way...
Our sole purpose in life is to save you time and money and give you confidence and clarity throughout the decision making process. We are here to make you look good! Our goal is to make sure you are confident in and downright happy with the acquisition of your new solution or renewed agreement, no matter which company you decide to go with, or what the solution might be.
