- Insist on performance and quality. You want (need!) a partner who will be agile and flexible in meeting your needs – you do not need slow processes, red tape or bureaucracy. Be sure to choose a vendor that will be ready and responsive should you have questions, need a fast response and/or encounter glitches in the system.
