I get involved in a growing number of vendor selection processes with my biopharma/med device clients. For many, it can be a potentially painful experience to choose an outsource vendor. Here’s why:
- There’s an whole lotta vendors out there. More than you can look at (and it seems like they’re all calling, every week)!
- Many vendors say they do (almost) everything. That really helps narrow things down!
- Sometimes it’s quite difficult to tell if you’re looking at reality, or getting a dose of smoke-and-mirrors.
- The players keep changing. Wasn’t that account manager just selling for ______ last week? And, wait; _____ just got bought out by whom??
- There’s no current, updated, internal list of which vendors are good for what (based on past experience).
- Go through an extensive evaluation process? – nobody’s got time for that!
