Service Providing Strategy – Cooperation

The close cooperation becomes the key element in basic strategic direction of several subjects cooperation. For the possibility to offer the client the best solution no matter if it comes from a single order or as a part of a complex solution of a service provider. Such steps have been realized already and know as 4PL. But as the practical experience shows nowadays, mainly international corporations welcome such service. The rest, both trading and manufacturing companies, remains skeptical. The situation is not getting better on the side of providers or suppliers either. The fear of revealing internal secrets of how things creating a competitive advantage are done persists. In order to offer such service a team of experienced experts is needed. Preferably with a long term practice from past projects. And such are costly. Above that, there is in average a 10% success rate in all the amount of received tenders and RFQs. So it is expensive to keep a such costly team just to satisfy occasional customer demand(s).

Therefore SMARTLIO offers a service that brings a possibility to deal with complex tenders (RFQs) using “competitive collaboration” attitude. That allows to successfully reach a goal using the top providers available.

Lobbing

This is a specialized expert representation of your interests done via broad scale of resources that basically avoid corruptive service barters. Lobbing is then very different from the service offered generally by non-specified elected representatives. As a representative of particular interests such a lobbyist submits information, knowledge and technical expertizes that might be useful for a final decision in the very object of intention. Professional lobbing is usually performed by consulting companies or specialized individuals.
