Price negotiation is a simple but basic business practice. I think about it this way, I am a professional shopper who can only deal with limited stores. I go to each supplier and start negotiating based on a set of circumstances. Basic supply chain mentality. This is my job and these practices flow into my personal life. When I get to the check out at the grocery store I ask for a discount if the soup can is dented, and what do you know there is a discount to be had. All I had to do was ask, and there is no harm in asking.
this. I have personally sold close to $10M in sw/hw/svc this fy, in a div of a company that does well over $100M sales a year. if a customer tells me he/she can get something at CDW for cheaper, i'm going to be meeting that price or getting or purchasing director to figure out why we can't.
i'm dealing with Rads and C level people, they know how to haggle, and usually get what they want. margin on goods is sooo much lower than sw/svc, why not cut them a deal on some stuff, when you are going to close a huge deal that is 100% margin?
