Benefits of Including Multiple Vendor Options in Kitchen Design Quotes
If you tend to stick with the same vendor for every project, you may miss out on opportunities to get a better deal for your customer, as well as the chance to establish a connection to another vendor who could introduce you to a whole new line of products you might use in future projects.
In the words of Luke Green, a contract and design specialist here at Rapids:
“[Offering a range of alternatives] helps us open the spec up to three or more manufacturers with whom we have a good rapport so we can get the best possible price…[but] we also can’t go too far and need to make sure we’re taking all the specified pieces in consideration to ensure the design still works well.”
