Vendor Selection Consulting that Lets You Shop with Confidence

Crystal Clear Criteria
Our vendor selection consultants set you up for success from the very start by helping you identify and articulate your business requirements with both functional and technical clarity. We’ll translate those into a Business Requirements Document which can be used as your blueprint for screening and selecting potential vendors.
Rigorous Vetting
We’ll help you strategically narrow your options through our multi-phased vendor section process that includes a high-level Request for Information (RFI) phase for gathering and vetting initial vendors and in-depth Request for Proposal (RFP) phase for evaluating the top contenders against your business requirements.
Empowered Decision-Making
Our vendor selection consulting team will manage the vendor meetings and on-site demos, develop structured demo scoring so you can compare vendors on a common footing, and schedule product demos with other stakeholders in your organization to ensure that all functional concerns are addressed and sufficient buy-in is established.
Extra Protection
We’ll help you assess the potential liabilities and risks of working with each vendor. And once your final vendor is selected, we’ll assist you in contract negotiation to ensure that you’re protected and that your business will enjoy all the benefits that were promised to you during the sales process.
