Request for information or Registration of Interest is a step you may wish to start with if you don’t have a particular solution in mind. A “shotgun” approach to find out which vendors are interested in supplying what solution.
Request for Quote or Request for Proposal is the next step when you have short-listed suppliers/solutions and have finalised your specifications.
Citec can help you to sort through the vendor proposals, comparing technical details, support warranties and even check out the track records of the vendors.
Having made a decision on a vendor solution Citec can help you ensure that you have a satisfactory Service Level Agreement or support contract in place.
