3 Reasons to Trash your IT Project Proposals

3 Reasons to Trash your IT Project Proposals

Technology projects are expensive. Really expensive. A hardware refresh can run anywhere from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands for a whole new system. Such a major capital investment requires a lot of diligent research and you need to make sure that you choose the right partner to execute that project on your behalf. But which one? While getting proposals for the project that you need might be the way you have approached this in the past, we think that you should throw those proposals out. Sounds a little crazy right? After all the back and forth, the conversations, the communication of needs, of pain points … Why would you ever throw all that energy away? Shouldn’t someone review these documents? Yes and yes.
