The Solution

Partner with 3Quotes to quickly find the right solution at the best price

3Quotes wasted no time and leveraged our trusted partner network to find Constellation Software the right solution. We presented five options to Constellation and narrowed them down using a Vendor Suitability Scorecard. Then, our technical lead and email security experts provided a final recommendation and BAFO offers so the board of directors could make an informed decision.

Check Point Software met all of Constellation’s needs but had never worked with a third-party procurement team before. We made the process easy for Check Point by educating the client about their offering, setting up a demo, and managing the contract negotiations.
