Software Procurement Process

Compare Solutions

You’ve been asked to support with the sourcing and onboarding of a new piece of software - in most cases, you won’t be a user of the software itself - so it’s important to ensure that your buying strategy incorporates the questions included in our guide and considers the associated risks and impact of implementation.

Supplier Assessment

When procuring a new solution it’s important to plan for the unexpected. To evaluate your solutions efficiently, you should consider the risks associated with third-party software suppliers. These risks include any regulations you must comply with, how the application is hosted, where your data is stored and more.

Protect your Investment

Without the in-house expertise to rebuild or support an application, businesses can be left without access to critical software for prolonged periods of time in the event of vendor failure. A business continuity plan mitigates this risk and details who’s responsible for providing continued access to your application.
