Global IT: Connect to Greater Flexibility, Scalability, and Efficiency
Organizations with an international footprint are constantly searching for simple and seamless global purchasing to streamline communication and in-country support, while staying connected to worldwide branches. Challenges span delivery inconsistencies, freight forwarding, customs, tax considerations, currency and exchange factors, warranty claims, and service. Our GlobalServe Solution can provide your organization with seamless:
Logistics — Customs inspections, missing paperwork, and local regulatory requirements can often lead to delayed product deliveries. We have a deep understanding of and experience with global logistics and supply chains and can help you navigate the challenges of getting a product from point A to point B.
Sourcing — Locating a reliable partner or IT supply chain in an unfamiliar country can create confusion and require added scrutiny. Calls to unknown suppliers with questionable reputations can add both time and risk to the process. We take the frustration out of supplier relationships. Our team has more than a decade of experience contracting with over 500 suppliers in 174 counties. We can do all the work for you.
Account Management — Organizations prefer to work with a trusted resource, and that can become difficult when you are branching out into several locations around the world. Additionally, it can be difficult to manage and update catalogs, manage end of life products, and sku and currency conversions with global procurement. Our Data Management Team handles all the complexities of deploying your catalogs in a global environment. And, our Supplier Management Team manages all vendors in country to circumvent challenges with languages and currencies.
Acquisition Activity — Mergers inherently create a complicated web of vendors and partners around the world. As a result, companies often face redundancies, budgetary waste and missed opportunities for savings. We can help you consolidate and simplify IT procurement activities—with full discount levels that would otherwise be difficult to achieve with global procurement.
