IT projects are essential for businesses in the modern world, but they can be time-consuming and complex. In fact, many of these projects exceed their deadlines. The consequences are often costly and can include a loss of productivity, decreased morale, and even legal penalties.
So, what can you do to save time on IT projects? One of the best ways is to use The Launchpad, a service (and soon to be a platform!) that connects IT buyers with pre-vetted vendors and solutions. In this blog, we’ll show you how The Launchpad can save you time (and money) on your next IT project.
Let’s delve right in.
Researching Vendors and IT Solutions
Finding the right IT solution can be a daunting task. With so many options on the market, it’s difficult to know where to start. This step alone can take weeks or even months.
So, how can The Launchpad help save time on research? By doing it for you! The Launchpad team is comprised of IT experts who know the market inside and out. They save you the trouble of combing through countless vendor websites by connecting you with vendors that fit your specific needs.
What’s more, The Launchpad does everything in a manner that’s timely and not time-consuming. Quick surveys and brief follow-up calls are used to confirm your current concerns and needs. The discussions are always meaningful and relevant, which has resulted in many IT buyers meeting with vendors that they may have otherwise missed.
Sure, there may be some misses from time to time, such as when a certain vendor specializes in an aspect of IT that you’re not interested in. But The Launchpad will always quickly doubles-back to introduce you to another vendor who is a better fit.
In short, The Launchpad’s research services save you time by doing the legwork for you and connecting you with vendors that are relevant to your needs. All at no cost to you.
Vetting Vendors and Solutions
It’s not enough to simply find potential IT vendors — you also need to vet them to ensure they’re a good fit for your business. This process can be time-consuming, as you’ll need to review each vendor’s proposal in detail.
The Launchpad team can save you time by vetting vendors on your behalf. They have a wide portfolio of partner vendors and are familiar with their offerings. This allows them to quickly identify which vendors are best suited for your needs.
The Launchpad team is always available to answer any questions you have about the vendors they’ve recommended. This ensures that you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. In a field filled with complexity, The Launchpad’s services provide much-needed clarity.
Overcome Supply Chain Challenges and Access to Technologies
Recent and ongoing supply chain issues have made sourcing needed technology that much more challenging. These issues have tested the commercial, operational, financial and organizational resilience of many organizations. Supply chain disruptions like microchip production, driver shortages, logistics provider capacity issues, inflation, shipping delays, increased freight costs, depleted inventory levels, labor shortages and demand peaks are impacting everyone’s ability to get their hands on the technology they need to move their businesses forward.
The Launchpad has partnerships with vendors who have technology inventory available in warehouses right now. If global supply chain issues are impacting your ability to source the technology you need, look no further. Reach out to us and tell us what you need. Within our portfolio of technology partners, we can source most technologies for you.
Helping You Gain Early Access to Emerging Technologies
Technology moves quickly, and it can be difficult to keep up with the latest trends. This is especially true for IT buyers, who often have their hands full with other projects. But if you’re to stay ahead of the curve, it’s important to have early access to emerging technologies.
The Launchpad can save you time by providing early access to emerging technologies. Their team of IT experts keeps tabs on the latest trends and can connect you with vendors who offer these technologies. This gives you a head start on your competitors, allowing you to implement new technologies before they become mainstream.
The Launchpad will also recommend solutions that complement your existing IT infrastructure. This ensures that you’re able to take advantage of new technologies without having to start from scratch. For firms that aren’t sure where to start, The Launchpad is an invaluable resource. Right now, this is still a free service to IT leaders.
