A customer should always consider other factors in addition to the dollar amount on the proposal. After all, what good is a low bid if the product is inadequate or the service inferior?
HOBOKEN, N.J. (PRWEB) January 13, 2021
A NYC area retail technology consultant and MSP discusses the inherent problems with selecting the lowest bid in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. Quoting John Ruskin, the author asserts that when you pay too little, you risk losing everything.
After listing several potential problems with accepting the lowest bid, she also gives three valid reasons for doing so. She concludes by discussing how to select a retail technology provider and encourages readers to consider intangible factors.
“A customer should always consider other factors in addition to the dollar amount on the proposal,” stated Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti Technologies. “After all, what good is a low bid if the product is inadequate or the service inferior?”
Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Why it’s Unwise to Pay too Much but Worse to Pay too Little.”
What Can Go Wrong?
“In any buying situation, you may not realize that a low bid, particularly one that’s much lower than the others, may be cause for concern. If the vendor has missed something important or excluded some items to provide a lower price, the project is likely to end up late and over-budget.”
How to Select a Retail Technology Provider
“Before you start, consider what it is you really need from a retail technology provider. If what you want most is to leverage technology to grow the business and increase revenues while costs decline, that narrows down the selection pool considerably.”
Consider Intangible Factors
“In addition to the expertise and partnerships providers list on their websites, look at their job ads. These will highlight the hard and soft skills they hire for in the professionals who will support your systems.”
“Consider which company makes you feel the most at ease and has the best communication. If one returns phone calls or emails faster than the others, they will probably be the most responsive during the engagement.”
