We’re Not Just Procurement Experts – We’re also Architects, Implementers, and Operators
About a third of our business is devoted to procuring technology – the other two thirds are helping our clients implement and operate that technology. Our role includes alerting you to the benefits and pitfalls that may not be apparent when a product is still in the box, and customizing a solution to fit your needs. We understand compatibility issues, product lifecycles, and the different technology options available, so we can find the right solution for your organization.
We’re Obsessive about Keeping Current with the Latest Market Data
It’s our job to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the industry, so we do exactly that. We know how leading companies are spending their IT budgets, and what manufacturers are developing in response to future technology projections. This means we’re well positioned to advise your business on what hardware and software to purchase, and when.
We Offer Full Lifecycle Support for Your Purchases
Technology procurement is only part of our offering. We help install and implement your purchases, making sure they’re compatible with your current systems. We spend time up front to ensure projects and programs run smoothly through to completion. Our architecture team provides guidance and support for all our technology practices, providing you access to a comprehensive pool of quality IT skills – what you need, when and where you need it – leveraging industry best practices, frameworks, and methodologies.
We Focus on Outcome Based Procurement
At Long View, we know an IT department’s ROI is now measured in terms of making strategic business outcomes happen. This is why we have created Outcome Based Procurement. We use your IT spend to fund and create a specific strategic outcome – which is key for transformation. This is more than a technology fund – it’s a structured program utilizing your current spend for future transformation.
Be audit proof
We’ll help you implement ITIL software asset management and vendor management best practices to optimize efficiencies within your licensing and support contracts, maximize cost savings, and create a dynamic SAM environment.
We gather all of your software licensing and support contracts from various data sources (including internal records and network scans) as well as vendor records of all the licenses and support you own
We reconcile these sources into our SYNC Web Portal to establish a solid license ownership position and correct records with vendors as we discover discrepancies
To ensure your records are up to date, we provide continuous support for managing your software licenses through our SYNC Web Portal
We assist in negotiating and renewing your vendor contracts
We track the status of your licenses and contracts, and provide notifications for upcoming expiries
To create flexibility, predictability, and additional cost savings, we can also help you utilize non-standard terms and conditions that may suit your business better than boilerplate vendor terms and conditions
Plus, if you are ever audited on your software, we are there to help.
