The Power of Partnerships

The Power of Partnerships

Just how important are developing partnerships for hoteliers, and how can those partnerships help to ensure your investments make a solid financial impact on your bottom line? Working with the right partner should be a collaborative process, not an adversarial one. How much time and money do you spend trying to negotiate to end up with a good price, but a BAD DEAL?

Partnerships are a means by which companies can lower their costs of doing business, gain more productivity and ultimately deliver a better process and product to their customers. The key tenets of any partnership are the ability to Trust, Communicate and Deliver on your promises.

Trust allows you to spend less time on the internet and phone, looking for another supplier to give another quote that you then have to take back, review and compare. How many hours do you need to spend with a supplier so they can even give you an accurate quote? Trust saves you that time and that frustration.

Communication. How easy is it to relay information to someone you’ve spent years working with as opposed to someone you just met, know nothing about and who doesn’t understand what you’re trying to accomplish? And how long does it take you to get them to understand that? Familiar, open lines of communication speed up a project when your partner knows you, understands you and can anticipate what you need during conversation.

Deliver on Promises. At the end of the day, businesses need to do what they say they are going to do. When you trust your partner and have smooth, clear communication, delivering on those promises to the customer is easier, more effective and produces a bigger bottom line. There are always hard costs to doing business. But there are also invisible costs that hide in the process of the project. At Northland, we seek to mitigate both by building better partnerships with our customers.
