Let’s face it, we’re all too busy. You've got enough on your plate. You probably just don’t have the time to deal with the entire process of another new IT buying 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" circumstances and details to manage.
We take care of all of that for you.
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. 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.
