We Make Sourcing New Technology Easier Than Ever
Macronet Services is different from every other sourcing vendor you have encountered. First off, we use our proprietary SaaS software custom-built to streamline the research and procurement process. Second, we have established relationships with all existing vendors. Finally, our fee structure is set up in a way that makes us completely vendor-agnostic—aka, we’re 100% focused on producing the best possible end result for you.
Here’s How It Works
Establish Goals & Timelines
In the first step, we work with your IT Team to identify what you are trying to achieve by adding new tech to the stack and add it to your project in our sourcing software. We’ll also help you get acquainted with the software as this will quickly become your home based for the sourcing project. Then, we’ll help you establish clear timelines so organizational expectations are set and we reduce the chance of paralysis by analysis
In our sourcing software, it’s easier than ever to add key stakeholders to your sourcing project. In this dashboard, they’ll not only be briefed on the project goals and timelines, but kept in the loop on any changes with integrated and fully-customizable notifications so everyone on the project stays on task and reacts quickly to any changes in the sourcing project. This ensures project timelines and goals are met in a timely manner.
Define What’s Important
Once stakeholders have been added to the project, the next step is defining what features and functionality are project critical. It’s effortless to rate specific features on a scale of importance and add potential new features that are essential to meet your project needs. Collaborating with your teammates is also easier than ever before within our sourcing software so the entire team moves in lock step to define critical feature needs.
You read that correctly—we bring the vendors to you! Listen, we’ve been sourcing technology for decades and two things hold true over the years: your time is tight and your team’s bandwidth is even tighter. Who in the world has time to sit through five software demos a week and not to mention the ensuing sales cycles. No—we flip the script, utilize our existing vendor relationships, and invite them to respond with proposals based on your needs.
Analysis & Product Demos
Great news, you now have a handful of proposals from the leading vendors—invited and vetted by us based on your specific needs. We meet to narrow the list of potential vendors even further so we maximize the impact of any potential demos and minimize your time commitment. Once we select the vendors who make it to the next round, we’ll setup product demos so you get a good feel for the product and get any questions you may have answered.
Finally, we help you navigate the red-lines and price negotiations pulling on our deep relationships with the vendors to get you the best price and optimal terms. Once the contracts are signed, we get right to work! The Macronet Services team will help you install both software and hardware ensuring a smooth transition from procurement to installation. We don’t get paid until the Jon is completed and you’re 100% satisfied with the results.
