Are you working with the best possible vendors to bring your programs and projects to success? Do you have criteria in place to help you evaluate vendors before you get into relationships that can slow you down or negatively impact your bottom line? Are you ready to negotiate creatively, confront vendors when necessary, and come to a win-win conclusion?
At The Simmons Group, we’re well-prepared to help you establish selection criteria so you can make the right choices about the vendors and partners you choose to work with. We’ll design assessment processes that you can use going forward, and we’ll team up with you to walk through every step of establishing positive vendor relationships.
We develop Requests for Information and Requests for Proposals, and then we look at your organization’s specific requirements to evaluate the responses to make sure you’re choosing the vendor that will best meet your unique needs. We have the technical know-how to evaluate what your prospective vendors are offering and how it meets your business needs. We participate in all vendor presentations, and then we provide you with the financial comparative analyses you need to make a wise final selection.
We bring to the negotiating table a track record of saving money through vendor selection, plus great working relationships with vendors and an adherence to industry best practices when negotiating terms. In addition, we are independent of all vendors, so you can trust that we are working in service to your organization.
