Understanding What that New Service Provider is Really Offering
When it is time to adopt a new solution for your construction company — be it new machinery for the job site or new software for the office — looking for the best deal makes good business sense. You’re looking for a solution that will help your company grow and become more efficient, and you want to ensure you find the best deal possible.
It’s not uncommon for buyers to ask, “Is that the best you can do for me?” in regards to pricing. Many providers have some sort of wiggle-room to work with clients, whether through straightforward discounts, free/upgraded shipping, free trials, or similar incentives. But what do you do when a provider goes above and beyond in offering a discount…one that seems almost too good to be true?
In instances like this, it’s important to know exactly what you’re really getting, for how long, and how that solution will help your company grow and scale with time.
Sometimes a ‘one-time’ discount or offer may look attractive initially, but quickly loses its luster when looked at from a long-term growth perspective.
You may be thinking to yourself, ‘This is great information, but what does it have to do with construction cameras and photo documentation solutions?’
Well, shopping for a construction camera solution is no exception! There are several components to consider when evaluating offers to provide construction cameras and services: camera cost, hosting service fees, power sources, accessories, discounts, etc. Construction cameras may be a relatively small piece of a project's overall budget, but they should be approached with the same due diligence as any other solution.
iBEAM recently had a contractor contact our camera specialists looking for a construction camera. He noted that he had reached out to another camera provider and was SHOCKED at the huge discount they offered him.
However, upon further questioning about the solution and discount, he quickly found that:
This is a perfect example of why it’s critical to know exactly what you’re getting when you’re offered a discount or incentive by a provider!
This potential customer discovered that even though the one-time discount from the other provider was attractive at first, it left his construction company locked into an expensive solution for future projects.
After speaking with our team about solutions from iBEAM, he found that we are not only competitively priced with nearly identical, if not superior, camera features, but also that we offer a variety of ways to save that gives his construction company more options and flexibility.
