We first understand your data strategy (we can help you develop this too). This includes your business requirements, goals, timeline and budget. We also pressure-test the recommended solution (tools + technology) by examining data-related challenges or opportunities.

When we’ve narrowed it down to a small number or the vendor is selected, we negotiate contract terms and pricing on behalf of our clients. This ensures that your interests are represented in agreement with the chosen vendor.
Beyond vendor selection, we also provide support during the implementation phase. We work with our clients and the vendor to ensure a smooth transition, integration with existing processes and systems, project management, data quality and governance.
