Vendor Selection
process

 If you know what technology you need to buy - but either don't have the time or skills to run the process, the Viewpoint Analysis 'Meet My Need' vendor selection service is for you.

We reduce the time, effort, and cost associated with selecting your vendor. We know the market, we know the vendors, we know whom to contact. In just a few short hops we can have proposals on your desk so that you can either shortlist or select your chosen solution. It is really just as simple as that.

RFI
Alternative

The RFI process has a place - but there is a better way. The 'Meet My Need' process brings a new, quicker, cheaper, and more professional approach to purchasing technology in the 21st century. Once we narrow the field - then go to RFP or, better still, run a brief supplier run off process.

Out of this world Results

On average our 'Meet My Need' service saves 84% of the time you need to allocate to the initial vendor selection processes - removing initial vendor research, first requirements calls and detailed requirement briefings for all long-listed vendors.

Let's talk. We just need to understand what you are looking to buy and why. Once we know the need, we can discuss the likely vendors that we might want to invite to the process.

We write the briefing document. It is not a spreadsheet with thousands of questions. It is a problem statement - the issue that you are looking to fix. We write it clearly such that the vendors have a simple view of the challenge that they are going to try to solve.

We invite all the suppliers to a virtual 'supplier panel' so that they can hear from you in one go. They can ask any questions and seek clarity before submitting their responses. The Viewpoint Analysis team host and lead the session to take the stress away from your team.

Vendors submit their responses - how they can meet your need. Unshackled from the form-filling exercise, they can articulate the art of the possible. Bringing new ideas that you may never have imagined.

It's then over to you - select the one you wish to buy or move to a more detailed procurement step.

We hope you will be surprised by our reasonable pricing. We want to help find the right technology partner for you, not to become an overhead that stops the project before it starts.

Viewpoint Analysis will be with you every step of the way. Once we have understood your requirement we will ensure that each of the interested parties has an initial view of your need. We will arrange diaries, host and moderate the Supplier Panel as well as be the conduit for any additional questions.

Our aim is to reduce the burden upon the procurement team and to ensure a speedy, efficient process that allows your need to be met as soon as possible.
