Ready to Partner with that Vendor?

You've looked at your needs, looked at the vendor landscape and you're ready to pull the trigger.  Before you do so, take a step back and consider the current and future organizational fit.  The solution with the best functional capabilities is not necessarily the right choice for your business.  Sure they need to be able to meet your needs, but it is more important that they partner to make you successful.  That means a successful implementation and an ongoing strategy that aligns their product and business model with the future of your firm.  Make sure your scorecard reflects the current and future functional needs of your organization, but evaluate the vendor relative to its future capabilities to grow with you as a true partner. Here are 10 questions to help choose the perfect partner in your vendor selection process.
