CRN Podcast: How To Win A Big Client Deal And Build A Lasting Relationship


When Snagajob.com, an online marketplace for hourly employment, decided to upgrade its IT infrastructure and migrate off its existing hardware, it marked a lucrative opportunity for one solution provider.

Convergent Technologies Group, a Richmond, Va.-based solution provider and exclusive Hewlett-Packard partner, ended up winning the deal, which was a tall order. Not only did Snagajob need an overhaul of its IT infrastructure, but the company also needed a flexible solution to accommodate its online business model.

Convergent pulled it off, and the initial engagement led to a strong relationship with Snagajob, with Convergent becoming a trusted IT adviser. So how did Convergent win over Snagajob? And what were the major challenges facing both companies on such a big project?

In the latest CRN Podcast, Monahan joins Rod Knowles and Rory Boyle of Snagajob to discuss how the two companies came together and built an ideal relationship between a solution provider and its client.
