The procurement of technology – including hardware, software, network equipment, memory, and switches – is an ongoing process for support departments of all sizes. iCorps’ outsourced procurement services enable you to leverage our product knowledge and buying power for your IT investments, resulting in a smoother purchasing process and assuring that the solution secured is the right fit.
Typically, a company’s purchasing process is ad-hoc, leading to a lack of uniformity, standards, and reduced cost-effectiveness. Having a dedicated procurement team is unusual for a company of our size, but there are significant gains to be had, including:
There is direct communication between our consultants and procurement team – who have broad technical, product, and business knowledge. Our consultants clearly articulate the technology specs to the procurement professional, and describes how the purchase will be used in your environment. This communication eliminates error and verifies that the technology you order is exactly what you need.
For larger businesses, the management of licenses, warranties, and subscriptions can become a second job for your busy IT support staff. But when you partner with iCorps, our procurement consulting team takes on the burden of this management, ensuring that these requirements are met consistently – saving you time and money.
