Buyer Resources

Simplifying the process of evaluation and procurement to address your challenges faster. 

Buyer Journey

We Can Help

We understand that selecting and buying a new facilities management solution can be a daunting process. Knowing exactly what you need and finding the vendor that best fits those needs is only part of the process. You also need to achieve buy-in and alignment from all your stakeholders, justify the purchase with a business case, decide which kind of licensing makes the most sense, find a purchasing vehicle/contract you can use or go out to bid (go through an RFP process), have IT review and approve of the proposed solution, get funding/budget approval, negotiate contract terms and more. It's a lengthy, complex process at best ...and that's if nothing goes wrong along the way.

Well, we've been helping buyers for over 30 years now, and have found a number of ways to simplify the process. We have a variety of buyer resources available to ease some of the pain, proactively avoid common pitfalls, and generally streamline the process as much as possible. Following are some of the ways in which we can help, but the best way to learn more is to speak with us about your specific situation. Don't worry; we're not pushy. We're just as interested in finding a good fit for our software as you are in finding the right solution for your challenges, and we won't hesitate to say, "Sorry, we're not the solution you're looking for." if we feel that's the case. So go ahead, contact us today and let's talk...

Pricing Options

Although we have a comprehensive suite of integrated solutions, we are happy to work with you in providing only the software you need, on an integrated platform that allows you to easily add other capabilities as your needs grow. For instance, you may only be looking for a CMMS now, but could see yourself adding capital planning and construction project management later, and eventually growing into a full-fledged IWMS with Real Estate, Space, Maintenance, Capital Planning and Energy.

To this end, we offer our software in various integrated suites, packages and modularly, and can assemble a solution that meets your exact needs. We then price our software based on the model and method that works best for you:

License Model Perpetual License (Internal) Perpetual License w/Hosting (IaaS) Subscription Model (SaaS)

Suffice to say, it’s not feasible to outline all our pricing online or expect buyers to interpret it correctly, so it’s easiest to say we’re generally a smaller percentage of your overall facilities budget that pays for itself in operational efficiency gains.

If you’d like to learn more, we’d encourage you to contact us. Don’t worry, we’re not your typical salespeople – many at AssetWorks have come from the industry (been in your shoes) and enjoy discussing challenges and sharing success stories, so reach out to us today…

Purchasing Contracts

We have a number of cooperative agreements with contracting vehicles that can streamline your purchasing process. Here are just a few of the more significant ones:

  1. GSA Schedule 70
  2. State of New York
  3. National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA)

Business Case Development

We welcome the opportunity to work with you in developing a business case to justify the purchase of our solutions, and estimating the Return on Investment (ROI) you can realize in deploying and adopting our solutions. We've worked with hundreds of facilities organizations and have a wealth of experience in quantifying the efficiency gains that can come from automating and integrating your facilities business processes. Use the form below to request help with business case development, and we look forward to working with you on this. 

Level of Effort Estimations

Similar to business case development, we are happy to help you scope your needs, the implementation process, and the resources required for a successful deployment. To engage us for a level of effort estimation, use the form below and check this option. 

Reference Requests

An important step in the buyer's evaluation process is to speak with existing customers to get a sense for their experience with us, as well as lessons learned during their implementation. We know it's important to speak with comparable organizations and specifically someone in a similar role. As such, we would be happy to connect you with a number of similar customers that you can speak with. Knowing specifics of your situation and challenges, we would be happy to provide you some references -- simply select this option in the form below.

RFP/RFI Resources

If you're unable to leverage one of our purchasing contracts, or piggyback on an existing contract that another part of your organization already has in place, it's likely you may have to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to get competitive bids from various vendors in the market. We're very familiar with the RFP process, and in fact, can help you with sample questions and content -- simply use the request form below and select "RFP Resources".
