Selecting the right IT vendor for your business is crucial to guarantee that the products you require are delivered promptly, priced within your ideal budget and are of the highest quality standards. At the same time, with a precise supplier’s selection criteria application, you are able to recognize potential companies that can collaborate with you to cater to your demands.
First and foremost, here are some tips for finding the ideal IT procurement provider that meets your business requirements.
Set your benchmarks
Firstly, create a criteria list that potential companies need to accomplish to provide you with the items you need. By and large, the demands will include details like:
– Time indication from product receipt of order after purchase to actual delivery
– The accurate number of products ordered
– Details on product storage and handling capabilities
– Specific methods of delivery
– Quality check on products purchased
– Terms and conditions for product payment
– Return policy (if any)
– Detailed contact information
In fact, setting the criteria beforehand allows you to appraise a potential IT vendor on each of the listed items so that you will not overlook any important detail.
Define a detailed procedure
Secondly, to find the most suitable procurement vendors for your company you can either advertise your requirements through media publications, call for bids or take a direct approach to selected companies of your choice and inquire for a quotation.
At the same time, allow a timespan for running through your range. Engage a team of qualified members from your company to assess the proposals and form a short list of the top few for a final selection.
Call for bids
Thirdly, if you chose bidding as your preferred selection process, put a call to all interested parties. It can either be a request for proposal (RFP) or a request for quotation (RFQ). These forms should include the specifics of products you need for purchase, the quantities needed, date of delivery and the quality standard as part of your criteria. In this case, bidders are required to provide information on the process of their procurement. As well as reasons for choosing their company as the right choice for you.
Evaluate all submissions
Lastly, compare each submission you receive against a checklist of criteria for suppliers and question any items that appear to be lacking in clarity. Therefore, we suggest taking steps to ensure the validity of the submission. Review the scope of the services outlined in the proposal and consider whether they match your requirements. Decide also on each criteria importance and score all submissions against this for an objective method of evaluation. Identify what the agreement or contract period with each potential supplier comprises of to ensure you aren’t drawn into a situation that could be damaging to your business.
Oversee your chosen supplier
Congratulations – no doubt you have now chosen your ideal IT procurement vendor. Now make sure that communication between both parties is direct and clear and make sure that they have a direct contact point for your company. Of course, you must do a regular performance review every now and again to check that they are fulfilling their end of the agreement. This review will assist you with any contractual renewal opportunities with the company in the future.
