FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
IQ TECH PROS IS NOW AVAILABLE TO HELP VENDORS
Over 15,000 consultants to help vendors & resellers
handle complex bids
Texas (May, 2010). IQ Tech Pros, the
world's largest full-service IT integration network, has now opened its
network to vendors. Previously only available to select resellers and
integrators, the network’s 15,000+ consultants are now available to help vendors
increase their own and their resellers ability to bid and service the most
complex projects. Vendors can get help integrating directly or help their
resellers to increase their capabilities within minutes, by joining the IQ Tech
Pros network of over 15,000 consultants, IT Integrators, and partners.
“Vendors are often left out of some of the largest IT bids because
they don’t have the capability to bid and complete all parts of a complex IT
integration project—either directly, or through their resellers (who may lack
similar capability),” says Kashif Aftab, CEO of IQ Tech Pros.“ However,
when they join with IQ Tech Pros, they can tap into a massive network that can
help with any phase of a complex project—including the mega-deals that only the
largest vendors (like IBM, Unisys, Accenture and others) can usually service.
Resellers can look much bigger than they really are, because with the IQ Tech
Pros network… they are.”
who partner with IQ Tech Pros can gain access to over 15,000 consultant and IT
Integrator members to 1) increase their capabilities to bid on any project
direct, 2) get immediate resources to help price and bid the most complex jobs
in record time, and 3) help their reseller partners to increase their
capabilities—so they can bid a vendor’s product into any specialized
project—including the mega deals.
one of the greatest services I’ve ever seen for vendors and the channel,” says
Ted Finch, president of Chanimal.com, a high-tech channel consulting firm. “So
many times a large RFQ deal comes in requiring integration with 4-5 products. A
reseller may only know how to integrate three of the five, so they quickly try
to find a consultant or another reseller who can help them bid and win the
project. Now, they make one phone call and find a non-competitive
consultant/integrator in minutes, plus get help throughout the entire bid-to-completion
process. What a great concept.”
wins—the organization needing help can single-source their complex IT project,
the reseller gets the help needed to bid, finance and complete the projects,
and consultants are able to help more companies with their specialized
expertise, programming, or integration capabilities.
large companies, such as IBM, have recently announced a similar, but yet-to-be
developed network to help their resellers collaborate to better handle complex
bids. Maybe they and other vendors should just join the IQ Tech Pros network
which is already setup.
About IQ Tech Pros
Tech Pros, formerly Saga Consulting, with over 15,000 consultants, is the
world’s largest full-service IT integration network. The company helps
IT resellers find qualified consultants to augment their existing capabilities
and help them compete in some of the largest and most complex mega-deal IT
projects. It helps consultants and integrators to find more projects quicker,
get paid faster, more consistently, and get work VISAs (if needed). Plus, it
helps vendors to extend the capabilities of their existing reseller base—so
their resellers can better integrate their product as part of some of the
largest, most complex bids.
Tech Pros uses a NEW model, not one of the old “BIG consultant” models, it is
like a consulting co-op where the members are treated as partners and everyone
does better–the consultants, the resellers and the organization needing help.
