To be presented Thursday, March 30 at 11 a.m., This session by a vendor-neutral digital signage industry veteran will define the path to vendor selection including the ins and outs of the request for proposal, possible vendor identification, proposal evaluation, short-list selection and contracting. This session is designed to save organizations time, money and procurement risk. Attendees will learn:
- How to move the digital signage product and service sourcing process forward in a way that fosters consensus in the organization and assures best value for the investment.
