Why choose a vendor when you can have a partner?

By: Russ Petrucci

It is nearing the tail end of Q1 and you have finally surfaced from the mountains of forms you had to submit to the regulatory bodies for reporting purposes. It is fresh in your mind what’s gone well and what hasn’t worked. Now you and your team must come together to start to evaluate vendors who can make life simpler for next year.

Between attending trade shows, word of mouth, and Google searches, your team has come up with a list of 10 vendors who all do roughly the same thing. Which ones are worth taking the time to evaluate? After hearing pitch after pitch and sifting through flashy marketing materials, you wonder to yourself:

  • Do any of these vendors have my interests in mind?
  • Do they really understand my needs?
  • Are they willing to partner with us to fill in any gaps?

Likely, you answered ‘no’ to one or more of these questions. This is when you and your team realize that you need a partner who carries the same values and principles as you. A partner by definition is, “a person(s) who takes part in an understanding with another or others, especially in a business or company.1
