More suppliers mean more choices for you. This message was heard loud and clear from our customer base when developing the EUC RFP. Consequently, the RFP stated “It is OECM’s goal to meet Client’s business needs by offering flexibility as represented through our marketplace of products and services. Through OECM’s constant dedication to the pillars of savings, choice, and service, OECM may through this RFP process enter into multi-Supplier Master Agreements (“Agreement”) with qualified Suppliers for the provision of Deliverables, each proposing different Original Equipment Manufacturers (“OEMs”) for fixed and mobile device Resources.”
OECM’s goal is to provide customers with the best available options to help meet their business needs.
Most customers have standardized IT desktop/laptop devices addressing security, privacy, budgets, technology refresh cycle, imaging, training, performance, application management, planning, rollout supportability, troubleshooting, etc. to one particular OEM for their core IT business requirements. They may, however, require other non-core IT products (e.g., accessories, small printers, etc.). If so, they have a choice to use the other OECM EUC suppliers to fulfill these needs.
