Wavicle’s Vendor and Tool Selection services for data management and migration initiatives are a natural progression of the due diligence our teams regularly perform when selecting new software and tools to accomplish our clients’ objectives. On every engagement we undertake, we encourage our clients to shortlist the industry-leading (versus the industry-bleeding) options to minimize risk and maximize reward.
From its inception, Wavicle’s work has relied on software and tools from an enormous, ever-expanding pool of software vendors and tools. Presented with an ideal opportunity to formally cultivate and maintain a growing Wavicle library of these vendors and advanced tools, we’ve built our Vendor and Tool Selection Consulting services around taking full advantage of this comprehensive knowledge base. Working with your business stakeholders to instill and execute a methodical, non-biased approach to your vendor selection process, Wavicle’s vendor and tool selection process consultants work closely with your organization to:
- Develop and Analyze Requirements – Create a business stakeholder/evaluation team to analyze and document a checklist of products/services requirements, technical business requirements, and vendor requirements
- Conduct Vendor Search – Compile, evaluate, and refine potential vendor list, send requests for information (RFI) and create shortlist.
- Complete RFQ/RFP Process – Include business overview and background, detailed specifications, assumptions and constraints, T&Cs, selection criteria.
- Evaluate Proposals, Finalize Vendor Selection – Review, chart out, and assign values for requirements responses, calculate total scores, select and begin negotiations with winning vendor.
Our Vendor and tool Selection Services are calibrated to ensure your business stakeholders, who have the most to gain or lose from this crucial exercise, can separate the sound from the noise through a well-managed selection process. Key takeaways include non-biased recommendations and more informed direction when choosing the right tools to propel your organization toward success in an ever-increasing technology landscape.
