6 step strategy
After 15 years of helping clients solve their toughest challenges, Bridgepointe has fine-tuned a powerful process to help get projects completed on time and on budget. Here's how we do it step by step...
Get to know your business
Businesses have diverse and specific needs and require carefully curated and architected solutions. We build long term partnerships with our clients by gaining a thorough understanding of your business operations and goals, contract requirements, short-term objectives and long-term projections.
Understand your desired outcomes
Understanding where you want to go and where you are starting is crucial to achieving success with any project. Through collaborative engagement, we will gain a detailed understanding of your current state, the challenges you want to overcome and the goals you wish to achieve. We leverage our experience with other clients in similar situations to help you recognize the possible hurdles as well as opportunities you may be overlooking. We document your objectives and make them the cornerstone of our engagement moving forward.
Create a blueprint for success
Our Solution Architects are at the heart of Bridgepointe’s success. Unlike competitors, our engineers are on-staff, on-location and part of building every client blueprint. Leveraging our continuous investment in product and technology training, our team will quickly identify all the possible solutions to meet your needs. We align these possibilities with our experience on thousands of successful customer engagements to create a personalized roadmap for success.
Engage relevant suppliers
Our robust portfolio of suppliers and neutrality around them means you have true “freedom of choice”—select from the very best options rather than be forced to use a specific supplier’s one size fits all solution. After we have determined the best path forward, we engage suppliers who have a proven track record for delivering. As we zero in, we engage our executive level supplier relationships to assist in negotiating to provide the best price and delivery outcomes.
Guide you through results
Once we've narrowed down the suppliers and their offerings, we will schedule adequate time with your team to walk through the detailed results from each potential supplier. We will clearly point out the crucial differences in product offerings, technology, contract terms, pricing and delivery intervals so you have a clear understanding of the best options to meet your objectives. At this stage, if you have any changes we will fine-tune the product offerings to meet your requests.
Assist in supplier selection
We rank suppliers according to your criteria and assist in final selection and engagement. You contract with suppliers directly, but our scope of work in the market puts us in a unique position to make recommendations based on real-world experience. Our broad buying power enables us to help negotiate the most favorable terms to your benefit.
Support project to completion
We build long-term relationships with our clients. After the contracts have been executed our work continues as an extension of your team by keeping pressure on the suppliers to meet their timelines and commitments. Expanding your team with ours allows you to stay focused on your core business.
Compliment the supplier relationship
Our executive level relationships with suppliers means we can solve problems fast and our buying power means you get the best price. We add real measurable value to the supplier engagement.
