Should You be Purchasing from a Single Supplier?

March 28, 2019

Requirements and regulations are becoming ever more stringent for critical environments, making finding the right products for a space increasingly difficult. Not only must the specs of the product be considered, but the supplier must be taken into account as well. Shopping around with the intent to purchase from a variety of vendors takes a significant amount of time and effort. In addition to wasted time and effort, buying from multiple vendors comes associated with a number of risks and drawbacks, including:

  • Incompatible hardware
  • Incompatible software
  • Minimal or disjointed tech support
  • Inability to integrate products
  • Installation and operational issues

Convenience Reduces Risk

The simplest way to relieve the headaches associated with buying from multiple vendors is to purchase multiple products or a kit from one source. To save time, going to a single supplier for multiple products streamlines specifying, selecting, and ordering everything you need for your critical environment. With a kit, products have been pre-tested for hardware and software compatibility, making it faster and easier to install, integrate, and operate products. When buying from a singular source, the scouring of multiple websites to find any needed documentation is eliminated; all documents can be found on and downloaded from one website. If support - tech or flex-hub-cleanroomsotherwise - is needed, a single support team can assist with all facets of pre- and post-sale support.
