Paying Too Much for the Same Services?

December 4th, 2013

What if you were told that you could be getting the same services for less?

Today’s post is by Sarah Kouse; Project Manager at SafeSourcing

What if you were told that you could be getting the same services for less? They said to you, you could potentially save thousands, hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars, for the same service, just by switching to a third-party business partner of the company you are currently receiving your services from? Would this intrigue you and make you want to know more?

Many times, a company will make it seem like they have proprietary services that they cannot get anywhere else for their products. Many times, that isn’t the case because they also have third-party business partners that are authorized to provide the same service or sometimes even more services while paying less for them. These business partners usually have an authorized ranking of expertise of Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, etc. Typically the higher the ranking, the more features and services can be offered, and their level of expertise is greater.

So for example, the current provider may threaten and say, “If you switch from us, you will lose the capabilities to receive firmware updates to all your devices.” If you were told that, would you just believe them and leave it at that? Or would you want to take it a step further and really see for yourself if that is the case? Many of times, you will find that in instances like this, it is untrue. Not only would you still receive the same firmware updates from a third-party business partner, but you will also receive services and firmware updates to legacy/end of life products that the current provider would no longer service.
