Fair enough, but you speak of DEALS. Do we not check their performance and quality? So if an idiot gives us a great we we jump on it regardless of their performance record? If a great guy makes a sweet deal then turns into a crack head do we keep doing business with him?
Once again, a ton of people listen to what the “Board member” say and follow alot of their leads. I want to either, let them know it can be ANYONE with AND to check them completely before using their service (Believe it or not many think you have already done that) or to find out the criteria.
The type of profession we are in, we have one ESSENTIAL need to survive, that is our reputation. Without a good one, we are SUNK! So when these companies provide outsourced needs, we are a direct reelection of their service as well, ie. if I send a mold sample to a lab and it takes 1 week to get back, people don’t care what the lab said, its what I SAID WOULD HAPPEN.
Do we ever go back and revisit our relationship with these vendors?
