“The team provided excellent and professional support during our vendor selection process. The combination of deep industry experience, operational knowledge combined with an excellent network to draw upon allowed us to make the final vendor selection decision on a very strong and thoughtful decision foundation.”

Our formalized process

We have a proven, multi-dimensional vendor selection methodology. While we facilitate the entire process, you’ll be equiped with the tools and insights you need to make an informed and data-driven decision on your new vendor. 



Comprehensive knowledge of the CROs and industry best practices help you quickly and efficiently narrow the universe of vendors.



Thorough analysis and scoring of RFP responses, coupled with strong CRO and vendor knowledge, identify the strongest candidates to participate in bid defense.



Solutions are not one-size-fits-all. A customized RFP gives you a complete picture of the relevant vendor landscape to your study.



Unbiased and comprehensive due diligence – including vendor risk analysis, pricing, and contract negotiations – means you will find only the most suitable solution for you.
