Our story begins with savings.

But it doesn’t end there. We help clients tackle some of their toughest IT sourcing challenges.

Our mission at NPI is to help companies stop overspending on IT and telecom purchases, and maximize the effectiveness of IT Sourcing as a strategic discipline. NPI was founded in 2003 by two former IT vendor executives who decided to help clients get a fair price in the notoriously inconsistent and complex IT spend category. Fast forward to today, and our business has evolved into something remarkable. Our 300+ consultants, analysts and vendor-specific subject matter experts have helped more than 450 clients drive hero-status savings on billions of dollars in IT/telecom spend.

And savings are just the beginning. We work alongside every client to speed buying cycles, provide licensing education and boost confidence – deal by deal. From sourcing strategy and project management to price benchmark analysis and negotiation intel, NPI delivers unparalleled IT sourcing expertise you can’t find anywhere else.
