Whether you are looking to procure and implement a small-scale application for a single department or a large, enterprise-wide data warehouse, The Valla Group, Inc. can actively engage to make your initiative successful. Our consultants have lead major software and hardware implementations across financial services, healthcare, hospitality, and many other industries.

Let us produce your Request for Information (RFI) by developing a detailed and comprehensive list of requirements needed to ensure you successfully meet your goals. Our consultant will conduct a product/company search and identify those products/companies that best align with your requirements, then distribute an in-depth RFI to the list of candidates.

The Valla Group, Inc. will accumulate the RFI information, assist you in narrowing the candidate pool, then produce and distribute a comprehensive Request for Proposal (RFP) to each candidate. Our consultants manage the procurement process from beginning to end, leaving your staff free to continue to conduct their daily duties without the bothersome phone calls and sales pitches from potential vendors. We also arrange all of the onsite demonstrations, schedule vendor/client visits, and orchestrate any necessary site visits for client evaluations.

Once your decision-makers have reviewed our detailed summary documentation and identified the best vendor solution, our consultants negotiate the best contract on your behalf. We continually save our clients countless hours of frustrating phone calls and conversations, and of course thousands of dollars in financial savings.

Our professionally certified Project Managers can structure your project team based on roles and skill sets, develop a detailed project plan and process that best contributes to success, and lead or manage the implementation project.
