As a result, its staff was spending extraordinary amounts of time and overhead to obtain quotes, choose vendors, navigate and negotiate licensing agreements, and handle renewals.
The organization knew it needed to consolidate its software vendors to better manage its assets, and it knew it needed expert help to make that happen. So it sent several reputable companies, including Insight, a Request for Proposal (RFP).
Strengthening our relationship
Prior to receiving the RFP, Insight had an established relationship of several years with the client, and its leaders were already familiar with our high level of support. In our RFP bid, our breadth of services, financial stability and deep relationships with all major software and hardware publishers and manufacturers made Insight the obvious choice to help the client address vendor consolidation. The client agreed we were best positioned to tackle its IT challenges.
Easing the burden of asset management
Insight’s Supply Chain Optimization team successfully consolidated the client’s numerous vendors into a single contract, effectively taking the burden of third-party provider management off the agency’s employees.
