Feedback from users of the eGuide

Why did I not find this workbook earlier? The experience included is tremendous. I have used it once but will use it over and over again.

  Procurement manager

The warnings and help in your workbook have saved us much time and dollars, and helped make our project investment successful. I believe the vendor we contracted has benefited from your guidance too.

  Chief Information Officer

Thank you for offering such a clear structure for my tender process. I would have drowned in the information without the guidance in your workbook.

  Business owner

We only found your workbook halfway through our tender process when we got stuck selecting a product from the many responses received. I wish we had used your tips earlier.
