Get the best price without going out for bid
When you are tasked with finding the best communication solutions for your organization within a specified budget, having the time and resources to navigate the request for proposals (RFP) process isn’t always realistic. Cooperative contracts help educational institutions, government institutions, and nonprofits surpass the RFP process.
As you’ll see in the video, cooperative contracts offer a way to simplify this process while guaranteeing that you will get the best price and flexibility to choose your service provider.
