Vendor Selection

If you are about to start a technology selection process, how about a different approach? One that doesn't need an RFP. An approach that brings you more ideas and increases vendor participation. A way of selecting your chosen vendor that is much quicker than an RFP and much less intensive for your team. 

Welcome to the Viewpoint Analysis Vendor Selection Service!

Our vendor selection service is so much more than just a selection process. We package a number of our individual services together to help you go from vendor selection process to business justification rapidly.

Included in the package:

  • Fast vendor selection process.

  • Our independent vendor head-to-head report.

  • Help with deal mediation and advice.

  • Pre-Purchase due-diligence report to support your business case.


Quicker than an

Our selection process is based upon our 'Meet My Need' approach to vendor selection. We build a 'problem statement' rather than a raft of requirements and pose the question to your preferred vendors. It's so much quicker than issuing an RFP - we strip out over 80% of the time and effort.

The core component of our Vendor Selection service is the process itself. Designed to go from vendor options to selection in double-quick time, we call it the Meet My Need service.

Arriving at your 'preferred vendor' is often a challenge with individual team members having differing opinions. Our Vendor Head-to-Head Report gives you our impartial viewpoint on your options, comparing the vendors across 15 different metrics.

Once you have chosen your preferred vendor, the commercial negotiations commence. We act as your advisor and sounding board and can step-in to mediate between the two parties as and when required.

The final piece of the jigsaw is our 'Pre-Purchase Due Diligence Report'. Our independent report is designed to accompany your investment or board case and provides our independent viewpoint on your selected vendor.



An RFP should ideally be used for your final shortlist and after the initial vendor selection process described above. In this whitepaper, we describe what you need to include in your RFP to have the best chance of success.
