Being a VIP, no matter the situation, is always a good feeling. Not only is it a feeling of importance and status, but it comes with perks that improve your overall experience. Getting to skip a line at a concert, getting the best seats in the house or experiencing top-notch service in a business venture are all aspects of being a VIP.
So what are some of the perks of being an Alliance Partner?
Well, for starters every detail of your project from start to finish is communicated directly to you, service is tailored to deliver top quality solutions and your needs are anticipated beforehand. Communication and information flow is enhanced by having a personal “go-to” Alliance Coordinator who provides a seamless operation, enabling you to relax and know that the job will get done, no matter the situation at hand.
Alliance Coordinators work with their partners on a day-to-day basis, even answering emails or phone calls at 10 p.m. on a Saturday night. It’s not just their job that they are doing; it’s being loyal to a relationship they built. They get to know you on a personal level and understand your needs and wants. They’re on your side, fighting to get you the best possible delivery date, paired with the highest quality product and experience. They are your customer advocate.
What to look for in an Alliance Partner?
You want to make sure the partner you choose has the knowledge, experience and longevity in the industry to meet your requirements as well as agreed upon lead times. Their capacity is also an important factor, along with their ability to have open communication both ways.
5 Reasons Why You Should Become an Alliance Partner
- You have the ability to lock in production space ahead of time.
- Improved lead times since there’s no need to issue a quote or approve pricing.
- Terms and conditions are already in place and no need to evaluate bids.
- A familiarity is developed and the Engineering staff can design specific standards for structures that are the most efficient and cost effective.
- You have a customer advocate dedicated to you and all your project needs.
Pricing for partnerships is negotiated and can be a combination of firm pricing, structure type pricing or estimated price per pound with final price known when the design is complete.
