Selecting the right vendor is critical to the success of your business. Especially for small businesses, wasting time and money can have serious consequences, as they literally cannot afford to get things wrong. How can you find the right business technology vendor for your small or mid-sized business?
4 Tips for Finding the Best Business Technology Vendor
- Think about what you need before you try to find the right business technology vendor for you. Every business is not good at everything, so knowing what your needs are when you start the process will help you. Sit down with your stakeholders and see what your most pressing hardware and software needs are and outline your budget.
- Research any potential business technology vendors in advance. Would you go to a restaurant with only 2 stars online that has a reputation for small portions and poor service? No! In the same way, you should not automatically trust a business technology vendor who has a reputation for poor customer service and low-quality technology products.
- How can the vendor make things easier? The right vendor for you should be able to streamline things and make your job easier. Talk with the vendor to see what their plan would be to help you simplify your workflow, cut costs and guide you to reach new heights of productivity. Teltek offers complementary assessments that can evaluate your current needs and project your future ones, along with formulating a timeline and budget.
- Secure multiple bids from different vendors. Even if you think that you have your potential list of business technology vendors narrowed down, you should still get multiple bids to ensure that you are receiving a competitive quote. Never automatically select the least expensive option, as the saying “you get what you pay for” is often true. Instead, pay attention to what makes each business different. Teltek offers numerous value-added services, including Total Care Assurance to keep your business’s technology in excellent condition.
