Many well planned projects fail as a result of poor or misjudged vendor selection. Sales teams can promise the earth, but subsequent technical and implementation teams can fail to deliver.
Xirco’s vendor assessment services are designed to reduce the risk to your business, ensuring that you are selecting a solid, reliable partner. Dependent upon the complexity and risk associated with a project or service, Xirco will assess a number of aspects of the 3rd party business and products. We have also found that implementation costs can be reduced – simply by having a knowledgeable technical contact representing you, asking the right questions, and ensuring that you are adequately prepared for the project.We regularly undertake vendor assessments using means such as:
- Site visits to premises and facilities
- Product assessments
- Financial assessments
- Assessment of market presence & customer references
- Adherence to statutory regulations and applicable quality standards.
The primary objective is to ensure that the vendor selected is the right fit for your business, and with an increasing number of trusted partners ourselves, Xirco may have the perfect partner or vendor for you already – saving you cost, time and effort.
We were recommended to Xirco in June 2015 as we had a major IT Upgrade.The whole of the process was carried out with friendly professionalism, in a convenient manor which never interfered with our business operation. All aspects of the work was explained to us in a language we could understand - not computer technical jargon - and was completed with little input needed from us.I have never experienced such friendly, helpful and efficient service and we will continue to use Xirco for our IT Support - can highly recommend you give Xirco a call - great service and technical knowledge.
Having worked with Xirco very closely for a number of years, I would have no hesitation in recommending them as an IT partner. We have successfully implemented several IT projects within our business using Xirco and the team always ensure that project scopes, technical requirements etc are well explained, with no IT jargon. Xirco work hard initially in a project to understand the needs of our business, which always then results in an excellent solution. The level of support provided is outstanding in all areas both pre and post implementation.
