Meet Your Cost-Cutting Duo

Senior Negotiator

On the front end, our senior negotiators handle everything on the front end. They discover your needs, create the strategy, and handle all the negotiations.

Senior Financial Analyst

Your sourcing decisions will be backed by the most accurate data. Behind the scenes, our financial analysts put together the bid sheets, model financials, and much more.

Backed By a Proven Process

Step 1Discovery


To negotiate the best price on any technology, we address each individual component in your environment. No matter the size of the contract.Through one of the more in-depth analyses you’ve likely seen, we find out how much you’re spending and exactly what you’re spending it on. Then we validate the data to make sure we have a full & accurate picture to strategize from.


Step 2: Strategy


Most of our clients are shocked by how in-depth our strategy sessions are.We dig through every component, answer every critical question, and give you every possible recommendation. All backed by clear data, benchmarking, and analysis to make sure you’re feeling confident as we put together your action plan.


Step 3: Action Plan


Once we’ve identified the best combination of vendors for you, we create an action plan to move forward smoothly. This is where we create a bid sheet, RFPs, terms, and conditions, communication and response guidelines, and more.

We’ll have everything we need to make a silky smooth bidding and contracting process.


Step 4: Bidding Rounds


Your senior negotiator will make sure the bidding rounds go quickly and effectively. After each round, we…

  • Put together the financials to see what and where the savings would be.
  • Hold a readout and tell you what the vendors came back with.
  • Go through a detailed list, component by component, of where the vendors were off compared to benchmarked rates.
  • Craft response letters telling vendors the price they need to hit to win the bid.

We do as many bidding rounds as we need to get you the best deal possible. All while giving you maximum transparency, visibility, and the final say on any decisions.


Step 5: Contracting


Vendor contracts are incorrect in the first contracting round.Our team is meticulous in seeing you through the entire contracting process. We review and redline the terms and conditions, handle all communications with the vendors, and do as many rounds as you need to get a clean contract to sign.

Through the process, we work closely with your legal team and any other key stakeholders.


 Step 6: The Final Signatures


Of course, you have to cross the t’s and dot the i’s. We’ll chase the countersignatures from vendors to make sure everything is signed and closed in a timely manner.
