Useful Guide to Follow When Comparing Vibration Consultant Services

Looking to choose the right vibration consulting firm for you? Given that vibration consultant services are not created equal, finding the best company to partner with can be a challenging task. But if you know what to look for, picking the best consultant for you should be a lot easier. 

Here's what to do when comparing prospective vibration consultants.

Look At Specialisation and Experience 

Vibration consultants can provide an extensive range of services, and it is important to find a company that focuses on your area of interest. Do you need vibration consulting for buildings that accommodate heavy machinery or critical transport infrastructure such as roads and railways?  

The consulting firm that you choose should have years of experience handling projects similar to yours. This way, you can rest assured that they'll bring knowledge and expertise gained from past projects into your project. 

Find Out Who Owns the Vibration Data Collection

Who owns the raw data collected during the vibration consulting process? Does the data belong to you or the vendor? 

If you see yourself doing business with a particular vendor over the long term, it makes sense to choose a vendor that holds the collected data for you. But if you're contemplating switching vendors down the road, it is important to find a vendor that lets you own the vibration collection.

Gauge the Company's Productive Capacity

In determining the right vendor for your job, it is important to assess the company's ability to meet the demands of the job.

Ask prospective consultants about how many personnel they have, the approach they'll take to ensure timely completion of your project and if they have the right tools and equipment for the job. Also, find out which projects they're currently working on to determine if they'll be able to commit adequate time to your project.

Compare Pricing

Different vibration consultant services charge different prices for their services, so it is important to know how you're being charged for the service.

Are you required to pay a flat rate or an hourly rate? Are you being charged per point? If so, how is each point measured? Or, will you only pay for what data is collected on? Choosing the best pricing system for you is critical for ensuring you get the most out of every dollar you pay. 

No doubt, there is a large number of vibration consultant services out there. But if you carefully review the above-discussed points, you should be well on your way to finding the right consultant for you.

Cheryl's Consulting Blog

Welcome! I'm Cheryl and this is my consulting blog. I was inspired to start writing the articles I have published here by a recent experience I had when working with a team of consultants. My business was performing badly so I decided that I needed to re-evaluate everything. I thought it would be useful to have a more objective view of the situation so I hired a team of consultants. The consultants were fantastic. Over the course of a couple of months, they examined every aspect of my business and presented a number of recommendations. These recommendations have really helped my business to thrive.
