Technology Procurement Solutions
At this point in the technology refresh process, we put all our partnerships to use for you as we find the manufacturers from which to purchase or lease your technology. We work within your budget to find you the best products for your specific needs as identified in the user segmentation exercise.
MCPc provides benchmark pricing based on data pulled from customers of similar size and industry to estimate appropriate pricing quotes. We can also reference any historic pricing models.
Technology Research & Financing Options
We tap into our partner network and scrub the market for manufacturers that offer the right technology for your needs. We then look at the technology’s life cycle, potential upgrades, new models scheduled for release, rebate programs, other discounts and financing options
With your best interests in mind, we work with the manufacturer
to ensure you are getting the most for your investment. Our unique approach to your technology assessment helps identify manufacturer offerings that can have exponential value within your technology environment.
Decision and Procurement
At this point in the process, we are prepared to confidently select the partner that will provide your business the best technology at the greatest value.
MCPc implements a Customer Central
methodology that includes a configurable ecommerce catalog called MCPconnect to facilitate the procurement process and manage your technology inventory
. MCPconnect gives your employees the ability to quickly order an item directly from a manufacturer, with internal controls that can be configured to align product offerings with IT support policy and your purchasing approval workflow.
Through MCPconnect, you can:
- Place an order
- Import orders as a batch
- Receive order acknowledgements
- Gain advance shipping notices
- View inventory balances
- Monitor project status
MCPc maintains Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) relationships with our customers, vendors and suppliers, ensuring up-to-date shipping and tracking information, as well as product availability and accounting functionality.
Storage and Prepping
Since often times customer computers are configured and then stored within our Strongsville, Ohio, storage facility prior to deployment, customers often send newly purchased technology straight to us. Once at our facility, each computer is tested to ensure it is in working order, configured with proper images
, staged and kitted
, and then deployed
to your facility when needed.
