A Vendor Evaluation Saves You Money and Headaches

Vendor Evaluation from Black Diamond Solutions IT Consulting ChicagoLet’s face it, IT vendor selection is tedious and downright boring.  No one wants to sift through pages upon pages of documentation and presentations to find the right fit for their next IT project.  But it is a necessary evil that most companies neglect.

IT vendor scoring is a necessary part of the procurement process.  In today’s IT environment, there are always several suppliers’ that have similar solutions that could possibly be a fit for your IT project requirements.  Creating a vendor scorecard that helps define your end goals is the first step in the process.  Choosing the wrong IT vendor can be a costly affair, as projects can have massive cost overruns and vendor shortfalls that can cost even more in delays and tying up valuable IT personnel.

  • Does the partner differentiate itself in any ways from our current partners in similar spaces? In other words, are the technological advantages of their product that would place them as a better alternative is specific environments?
  • Does the partner have a sustainable business model and are they growing?
