Virtual Corporation has the pleasure of presenting at the North Texas APICS chapter in Dallas, Texas on August 1st. Shane Mathew, VP of Professional Services at Virtual Corporation, will be presenting:  

“Vetting the resilience of your vendors: Best practices for selecting vendors that will be there when you need them.”  

With the variety of technology products and services available, vetting vendors properly may be a challenge. It’s important to conduct due diligence when evaluating current and potential vendors. Whether it is ensuring vendors have data security practices in place, or adapting to customers’ changing expectations and demands, assessing existing and new vendors capabilities is a key component to sustainable business operations.  

This presentation will focus on what can go wrong when your vendors are facing business disruptions such as digital, data security, lack of necessary infrastructure, or even natural disasters and cannot fulfill your service requests. It will also challenge you to consider a multitude of factors when assessing your current vendors and potential new vendors.
