Finding suppliers who can deliver on-time and below budget is a challenge for every organization, but none more critical than those working in governmental sectors. While many GSA vendors can meet the criteria to have a published schedule, not everyone checks the boxes to ensure your work in procurement or as an organizational leader is accomplished to your standards. Here we provide a few highlights to help you uncover the best IT vendors to ensure your work is completed beyond expectations.
Components of a Best-in-Class GSA IT Vendor
Finding the right IT services and IT staffing company is critical to the success of governmental entities in delivering services and vision effectively and efficiently. Here are a few points that have proven time and again to be an important factor in evaluating GSA contractors and their ability to deliver without complications or concerns over quality.
If the leadership within a GSA vendor company is not strong and well-established, the stability of the business is at risk, as well as their ability to follow through on a contract. Company leadership must be willing to fully commit to GSA services to not only continue forward, but focus on expanding service offerings. For example, V-Soft Consulting is led by its founder and President, Purna Veer, since its inception in 1997. Veer was recently quoted as highlighting the importance of V-Soft's GSA services in the overall strategic plan for the organization:
At V-Soft, our GSA service offerings are a cornerstone of our business plans for now and decades to come. Our leadership team is among the best and I personally am making sure we invest into innovative approaches to help our governmental partners solve their biggest business challenges." Purna Veer, President, V-Soft Consulting
Trusted by Leading Institutions
We've all witnessed new companies springing up to offer amazing services, yet many have little history or foundation to work from. These companies are often an idea by various stakeholders, but without years of experience as an entity, they only last a few years, leaving projects unfinished and forcing new vendors to work through proprietary projects. The key 'tell' here is these newer companies have rarely received recognitions by reputed 3rd party institutions. Without these industry recognitions, you should be hesitant to proceed with a vendor. V-Soft Consulting, for example, has numerous industry awards recognizing its excellence throughout the years. This includes recognitions for fast growth, major platform partner designations, and minority recognitions. More recently, V-Soft was recognized by the U.S. Department of Commerce as a top minority innovative technology company. More details can be found on V-Soft's recognitions page.
Without a history of delivering innovative IT solutions in similar scope and breadth, a potential vendor lacks the trust an organization should have. Past performance case studies are crucial to understanding a vendor’s ability to execute and deliver. A strong history of attention to the details, including discovery, proposal, launch, completion, and follow-up expertise, must be present to ensure no facets are missed. V-Soft Consulting is an example of an IT services supplier trusted for years to place a strong history of delivery, innovation, and service, some of which are highlighted on its GSA page.
Committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
In today's progressive world, diversity is more than just a buzzword or a box to check, but a true part of a company's DNA. Diversity makes for a stronger business that will empower larger classes of workers, allowing them to achieve and deliver to clients and companies. V-Soft has been a diversity IT supplier for over 20 years. V-Soft is also a certified woman-owned business (WBENC) and minority-owned business (MBE), recognized as such by organizations like the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Minority Business Development Agency. Its history of engagement and participation with local communities is reflected in V-Soft’s open and inclusive culture that celebrates diversity. V-Soft’s diverse and multicultural workforce comprises nearly 80% minority employees spread over 43 states and 4 countries.
GSA IT Services
Offering a full suite of solutions and services for GSA customers is an important component for any IT services vendor. Technology is rarely operating within silos anymore, but often cross-pollinates systems to ensure a well-functioning organization. V-Soft has a strong offering of IT services with which it has been helping its clients bring total digital transformation.
