It’s difficult to draw distinctions between IT service vendors unless you ask the right questions at the beginning of an outsourcing relationship,” said Todd Stuchlik, director of managed services of CDC Global Services.
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2011
Giva® and CDC Global Services (a business unit of CDC Corporation and a provider of consulting, IT and IT-enabled services), today announced the schedule for a webinar series on how to select the best IT service desk/help desk outsourcer. This webinar will help attendees learn how to build a Request for Proposal (RFP) and avoid mistakes that even the most experienced CIOs/IT Directors make when selecting an IT outsourcing partner. The webinar will be held on February 24th, March 3rd and March 10th, 2011 at 11 a.m. EST.
“It’s difficult to draw distinctions between IT service vendors unless you ask the right questions at the beginning of an outsourcing relationship,” said Todd Stuchlik, director of Managed Services of CDC Global Services. “It’s also difficult to get started in the requirements gathering process to build an RFP with just a blank slate. We’ve received excellent feedback on this very successful webinar in 2010, so we are continuing the series in 2011.”
Many organizations that are considering outsourcing are already understaffed and over burdened with IT projects. This complimentary webinar will help attendees quantify the economic benefits and costs of IT service/help desk outsourcing. Attendees will also learn how to lead the vendor qualification process with expertise and negotiate the best IT service/help desk outsourcing agreement for their company.
“Effectively coaching your IT team on how to shortlist the right service desk/help desk outsourcers for a rigorous vetting process is not familiar to many CIOs/IT Directors, since it’s not done on a routine basis,” said Ron Avignone, founder of Giva, Inc.
