RESULTS Reduces the Complexity of Vendor Management for Our Clients

Many businesses need help managing their IT-related vendors and RESULTS is in a unique position to deliver that service effectively and efficiently.

In the traditional IT model, the corporate IT department (and perhaps other departments) managed many providers, including:

• IT services company, such as a Managed Services Provider (MSP)
• Internet provider
• Domain host
• Website developer
• Security (network, website)
• Cloud applications (SaaS)
• Copier vendor
• Telephone provider
• Teleconferencing/Videoconferencing provider(s)

In this old model, the MSP (RESULTS) was one of many vendors, and you acted as the central hub between all of them.
