Technology Vendor Management
Managing acquisitions and implementations of vendor technology installations is becoming more difficult and time consuming.
With the advancement of technologies including unified communications, it is getting even more difficult!
Successful technology installations take a combination of IT, telecom, network and vendor management skills that most organizations either don't have, or don't have enough resources internally to take on "one more project."
We have been designing, implementing and managing complex technology solutions for over 25 years, using our structured, disciplined project management techniques.
We bring current technical knowledge from our in-house use of next generation communications solutions as well as best practices from other clients.
All the while, we work beside your procurement, financial, customer service and technology staff leveraging our experience and tools, transferring knowledge to deliver successful results.
We leverage our structured project management, procurement and processes, automated RFP analysis tools, vendor relationships and experience so that the acquisition and implementation projects are successful for all parties and the expected results are achieved.
Benefits of working with FOX GROUP
Savings - We generally save many times our fees on larger projects from our technology knowledge, our ability to compare and leverage price knowledge and our vendor negotiations expertise. This combination helps us ensure our client projects are installed successfully on time and on budget, every time.
