We do not simply take company's words that are for behind a certain cause. Depending upon your preferences, we find out and ask for data supporting the specific issue. For example:
We then compile the information and based upon our interaction with the client benchmark your current vendor against other possible candidates. The index is based upon quantifiable data versus simply anecdotal information.
EpeeNoire assists clients to find the best vendors for their HR benefits department. This includes searching for benefits consultants, investment consultants, 401k recordkeepers and actuaries. The process can involve simple searches to full request for proposals with interviews and final recommendations.
We visit, live or virtually, and learn who you are and what you value. We then code these characteristics in our database to create a custom benchmarking index.
The search could be simple, with just a reference of firms and you handle the details, to running a Request For Information, to a full blown Request For Proposal.
For a full service RFP, we can have virtual visits or physical meetings depending on the client's needs. We score the vendors based upon your needs and how the vendors performed on the index.
