Why should I use an SMDC Consultant?
Purchasing consultants is an increasingly risky activity. Many businesses will encounter individuals and firms that either do not or are actually incapable of delivering on the promises set out at the tendering stage. There are several reasons why this might be the case; lack of manpower, poor internal management, lack of skills and knowledge or inexperience.
By using an SMDC member, buyers are able to mitigate the risks attached with purchasing, particularly if the client very rarely or has never purchased professional services before.
Our resources and processes ensure that by using SMDC members buyers can:
• Buy in confidence by taking advantage of the resources made available to those buying consultancy services
• Have trust in their selected consultant, knowing that they adhere to SMDC Professional Code of Conduct
• Have the backing and support of SMDC should problems with our members arise
