Having identified the problems and challenges facing your business, Fitbyte will work with you to assess and prioritise what is required and establish achievable solutions that work within agreed budgets and timescales.
Often, there are operational and organisational structure changes that can be introduced simply and quickly to improve performance and create value. There may also be suggestions for alternative routes to market that can be explored and implemented. But it is often IT innovation that drives a business forward and improves its performance.
Fitbyte is able to procure and manage your outsourcing arrangements by offering:
- Extensive knowledge of the market landscape, current trends and innovations.
- An ability to unlock technology barriers that can be daunting to business managers.
- A commitment to vendor neutrality. Not taking commission from suppliers guarantees a completely impartial view and selection of the most appropriate solutions.
- A wealth of experience in cost and contract negotiation with vendors to ensure procurement of the most effective service, on the best terms and at the right price.
The Outsourcing Process
Request for proposal
With your agreement, Fitbyte will draw up a Request for Proposal (RfP) based on the results of the consultancy. Although the market for IT products is accelerating at a rapid rate, we are able to dedicate time and resource to researching the best options to meet requirements and will distribute the RfP to a limited number of carefully selected suppliers.
As proposals are received from vendors, Fitbyte will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of each one and assist you to make an informed choice.
Fitbyte will check the fine details of the supplier contract, and will negotiate the key terms where necessary. Armed with full market and competitor knowledge, we will also negotiate the cost on your behalf to ensure a fair deal on price.
Fitbyte will set clear expectations of any strategic partner so that the relationship can be controlled and managed over time. By defining the Service Level Agreement and the Key Performance Indicators at the front end, there can be no dispute further down the line as to whether expectations are being met.
