Vendor Checklist

With the speed of business these days, it is easy to overlook the importance of the criteria you use when choosing a firm. Finding a dependable professional among the dozens in your market make it a huge, sometimes painful chore when it comes to differentiating between them. That's where we come in! We're here to take care of that "to do list" item and provide your company with a solid starting point to find reputable firms your company's network can depend on. We encourage you to review our tips to finding dependable services and remember to ask for customer testimonials so you can make your hire with complete confidence.

Are they local?

The first factor to consider when evaluating is the proximity to your business. If they are local, then it will be somewhat easy for them to come to your premises and be there in a timely fashion when you are in need of assistance. If they are not local, it is going to be much more difficult to rely on when you are in need. This is one of our screening criteria when selecting the best option.

What will it take to get started?

The second step in the process is to see how well the initial system setup will meet your immediate business needs. You will first need to make a checklist of what those needs are so you can share that with us and we'll use this checklist to find the right vendor for your needs. Start by listing the current challenges your business network faces and how you would like to see those challenges addressed.

After your problem is resolved, how does ongoing break-fix work?

the next factor to consider is ongoing maintenance. Once your systems are in place, you need to review what the company will do to ensure those systems continue to motor along smoothly. Preventative checklists provided by your firm will help your staff maintain technology efficiently. Periodic maintenance reviews will also be helpful to ensure the systems continue to meet your needs as they evolve.

Network Security is critical, who is protecting your systems?

Another important factor to take into consideration no matter what the size or nature of your business may be. Financial records customer information and your confidential business data needs to be preserved and protected.
