Direct Selling Vendor & Systems Selection

Direct Selling Systems Selection

Three simple truths:

1. The solution one company uses is not necessarily the right solution for another.

2. There is not one solution or system that does it all very well.

3. Technology by itself- no matter how sophisticated, is only half the equation.
 
Every year the ranks of direct selling services and technology providers are swelling with new, and not so new, technology offerings. 
What are the available technologies? Which vendor or solution is right for you? Should you build it, buy it or outsource it?

 

DSXgroup will help you choose the right vendor and solution by assessing your needs, defining your requirements, mapping them to resources, leading the vendor selection & negotiation process and providing risk and implementation oversight to ensure success.


What We Do: 

Lead executive team in adequately defining business requirements prior to executing vendor & systems selection processes for technology solutions. 

Execute the vendor & systems selection process based on defined requirements and lead contract negotiation for chosen solution.

Go-Live Readiness Assessment & Risk Mitigation

Once your new system is ready to launch or 'Go-Live'; it is prudent to execute a Readiness Assessment to re-evaluate potential risk issues and identify any red flags that may impact business operations.

Although issues may become evident soon after Go-Live, many take time to appear as various business processes complete their lifecycles. Identifying any potential red flags prior to 'flipping the switch' is the best way to mitigate or completely prevent serious issues from happening.
  

Project Risk & Implementation Oversight

Risk and Implementation OversightDSXgroup executes a pre-launch assessment of the critical business functions, functional requirements, continuity protocols and planned launch initiatives and compares them to defined system functionality and work flow processes expected post implementation.

Based on the assessment, DSXgroup will document any potential risks, red flags or other threat issues and provide client with recommended course of actions to mitigate risk and provide risk management oversight to ensure resolution.
