Managed Services Procurement
Finding best managed IT services for your project
If undertaking supplier procurement you may be looking for a supplier or product that already exists in the market and can be tailored to your requirements. If you are an agency or IT consultancy, you may be looking to integrate with another system as part of the initial brief or as a change request for new features.
As is more common now the product or service you are looking for may be available as Software as a Service (SaaS). Examples of SaaS products are:
- E-Commerce Platforms
- Booking Systems
- Payment Systems
- CRM Systems
In these instances vendors host the software and a degree of configuration is required for the systems to match a client’s requirements and design/layout.
- Researching solutions against requirements and scoring
- Contacting vendors with project specific questions
- Producing VFM matrix for different supplier options
- Long range pricing definition
- Pricing negotiation
- Contacting existing clients.
If your requirements can be met solely by SaaS provider, or you are looking at integrating a managed service into your system, please contact Project Analysis to ensure you are getting the best value for money.
