Consulting Services

To negotiate effectively with your vendors, you need market intelligence:
knowledge of alternative products, the vendor landscape and what competing firms are using.

Cost Optimisation

Are you getting the best deal from your vendors? We can review the basis for how you are charged and whether that still matches your current needs. To negotiate a fee reduction, you need a clear understanding of your options for change ...

Options for Change

A strong negotiator has other options. So we assess the market for alternative platforms and providers. We identify their relevant strengths and weaknesses, and what it would take to make the switch.

Competitor Analysis

You need to know what the other firms are using and how they use it. We help you judiciously share information via vendors and other firms, which leaves you better informed and better connected.

Get More from What You Have

While knowing your options for change is important for negotiation and confirming you have the right technologies in place, there is often great untapped value in what you already have.

Are you limited by the ability of your firm to absorb change? RightFile can help you identify the easiest and highest value opportunities.

For example:

  • Options for upgrading or adding a module to an existing system,
  • integrating information between existing systems,
  • consolidating systems,
  • moving to hosted services and
  • helping negotiate better service and new features for your current products.
