Purchasing products and services within scanning solutions and digitalisation of archives, e.g. building project archives and case archives, can be a complicated matter. The market is complex and offers a wide range of solutions and options.
During the purchasing process, it is important to have knowledge and insight about the market in which coming suppliers operate.
Accenture can help to ensure the purchase of the correct services and products to meet the organisation's needs, without compromising on price, quality or dependability. It’s about finding a balance where the supplier requirements are carefully tailored to the internal organisational needs. Another factor in these processes is the approach to negotiating and establishing contracts, implementation and the subsequent use of the contracts.
