Clearing The Vendor Management “Fog”

Clearing The Vendor Management “Fog”

One of the biggest complaints we hear from potential customers is the hassle of vendor management. Specifically, technology vendors. As a business, you have a vendor for internet and phones; possibly one for your printers and copiers; and maybe another one for your third-party line-of-business apps. With all of these different points-of-contacts it can be hard, and time consuming, to remediate an issue that may occur. The internet connection to your building may go down. A printer may fail, or your apps may throw some errors. When this happens, you need to know who to call and hope they won’t just point their finger at another vendor.

Many times, vendors are not very helpful when working on a resolution. If there’s the slightest chance that the problem could be the result of another application or vendor, they will usually just tell you the issue is not with their application and you should call the other vendor. Once you contact the other vendor, they just point it back to the original company. Before you know it, you are just going in a circle without a resolution for your issue. This is not only frustrating, but time consuming.
