United Arab Emirates
Our proposal would consist of the following steps and payments:
We sit together with you to list your requirements:
With our local partner we do a quickscan on the market in to see whether there are enough potential vendors who can service your needs. If not, then we look for another country. Out of the 30 countries where Alliance experts is active, together with you we select three where we see the best chances. In each of these countries, our local partners will do a quickscan on the availibility of qualified suppliers. We report to you, so that you can choose one country to focus on.
A first payment of € 4.000, before we commence
A first payment of € 1.500, before we commence
In the selected country, we will search for and list potential suppliers. We will approach these suppliers to see whether they are interested to work with you.
If so, we will directly ask there for a quotation and delivery conditions, and the quantities they can supply. We will first ask for a company presentation and a product catalogue, and more about the way they operate. We will first ask for a company presentation and a product catalogue, and more about the way they operate. We will first ask for a company presentation, their machinery and the skills of their staff, and comparable projects that they have done. We will first check whether they can really deliver the service that you are looking for, and what reference cases they have. We report to you on our findings and advise with which companies to proceed.
A second payment at delivery of the report, starting from € 2.500, depending on the complexity and the country
For up to three potential suppliers:
We will help you close a confidentiality agreement if necessary
We will provide your RFQ to them and request for a quotation
We review the quotation together with you and prepare questions for a meeting
We join you (virtually) in the meeting and help you with negotiations
Eventually it is up to you to compare the offerings and close the best deal.
Up from € 2.000 per supplier, depending on the complexity
Mostly for commodities or for relatively standardised products there are standardised trading and shipping conditions, which makes doing business easy. If necessary, we can always support you here
Once you have a contract, we can support you in the communication with the supplier. We can do basic checks on the goods that are to be shipped.
In case of delays, we can visit the supplier or check any hickups in the logistics process. These activities will mostly be invoiced on a day rate.
Since the estimated purchasing value is relatively low, it may be the case that hiring us is more expensive than any benefit we can arrange for you. In that case we suggest to look at different trading platforms and search there for something that most fits your needs.
With an estimated purchasing volume of over 50.000 EUR/USD, chances are good that the financial benefit of working with us is bigger than our fees. Especially if you take into account the time that you have to put in yourself otherwise in approaching suppliers in a different country. We can bring you to lesser known vendors with better prices or delivery conditions.
With an estimated purchasing volume of over 250.000 EUR/USD, you can be certain of the financial benefit of working with us. We can bring you to lesser known vendors who are eager to work with you and show flexibility. Even a few percent discount or better delivery conditions will easily offset our fees for supporting you.
