You have made your final vendor selection - our Purchase Assurance Service aims to make sure you have the peace of mind that it is the best decision you can make.
We provide an independent assessment of the vendor through a rigorous investigation of the company, its product or service, and the commercial terms.
It should be the final step before final approvals are sought - and our report should be an integral part of your funding request and papers.
We aim to cover every area needed to assure the procuring team of their vendor choice. We leave no stone unturned. The package includes:
Independent customer reference calls where we talk to current customers to get their candid feedback.
A 360-degree report looking at the vendor's business. We assess their market position, financials, key leaders, and much more.
Commercial review and check - looking at the key terms offered by the vendor, we provide our opinion on the deal offered (we do not cover the legal/contract terms) to assess value for money.
Negotiation Support - a unique service where we can help to mediate and drive out an agreement where issues are preventing final agreement.
Nobody can guarantee your vendor selection is the right decision - but we can aim to make it the best decision you can make right now, by checking all the areas that can be checked.
Our aim is to provide a completely independent viewpoint on your selection decision, giving you peace of mind that you and your team have done all you can before spending your company's finite resources.
We know that our Purchase Assurance service is on the critical path and that we need to move quickly. When a vendor decision has been made, it's likely come at the end of a long process - and the pressure is on to sign contracts and spend the money.
Our commitment to you is that we will move as quickly as we can, whilst getting the job done accurately and effectively.
Like all of our services, we aim to offer value for money. What's more, like much of what we do, it's a 'fixed' cost service. There is no risk of project creep or price changes - we get the job done and do what we say.
