IT PROCUREMENT

IT procurement is likely considered to be one of the least glamorous parts of wearing the technology hat for your organization. You know that “glazed over eyes, frustrated and endless websites, unsettled feeling in the pit of your stomach” kind of thing?! Yeah, that’s what we’re talking about.

FIVE NINES PROCUREMENT

HOW WE DO IT

What if all of the pain and suffering of procuring IT assets evaporated into a single phone call where you communicated your business needs and objective to someone you knew by first name, trusted with your alarm code, and invited to your office holiday party?

At Five Nines, we recognize the importance of getting the right solution, the first time, so we’ve built an entire team of IT procurement managers dedicated to the process of identifying, sourcing, configuring, and deploying all of the IT assets your business may need. So whether you just need a new laptop for your employee starting on Monday, or you’re about to relocate office buildings and need help navigating the ocean of decisions ahead of that process, our team can guide you through those decisions (and the implications) so that you can focus on your business.

The traditional IT procurement process is made up of several areas: requirements-gathering, business proposition or ROI exercise, identify suppliers, request pricing/quotes, negotiation, vendor selection, purchasing, receiving, and implementation. While some purchases may seem more straightforward and direct, nearly all purchasing decisions traverse these categories. At Five Nines, we’ve established roles and responsibilities for the process, so that we can expedite the timeline and remove you from having to drive every detail, start to finish.

ACCOUNTABILITY

FIVE NINES TAKES ACCOUNTABILITY

As your partner, Five Nines assumes accountability for the systems and functions of your technology to produce the performance expected for your business. What we manage doesn’t stop there though, we’ll also then integrate any new solution into the IT plan and subsequent budget line items for years to come, so that we can eliminate surprises.

When your IT procurement manager from our Partner Success Team provides a quote, we guarantee the pricing for 30 days to offer you ample time to reach the decision, even though our costs may vary in that time frame

WHY IT WORKS

FIVE NINES TAKES ACCOUNTABILITY

By taking ownership of the IT procurement process, we’re able to control the outcome. We work with the suppliers & vendors that have already been vetted, negotiate advantageous rates/pricing, and handle all of the product as a concierge.

As your partner, it’s as simple as emailing our partner success team, or picking up the phone and calling!
