branding company taking IT decisions
Posted on 2012-09-06
We are into real estate company recently we have gone for branding, the branding agency are working with us, I works IT Head and myslef linux administraror maintaining server virualization vmware , storage , MPLS network , IP-PBX linux based VOIP. mpls each spoke with linux box for dns slave and many more around 8 linux server configured and mainteined and also zimbr amail server. Now all of a sudden branding company comes in and says they want the present web service provider to be terminated and present SEO serive to be terminated and we have to sign a contract with their reference service provider.
We still agree to change the web and SEO service provider but iam not comfortable with the service provider they are reffering for as they are technically not up to the mark.
My doubt can Branding companies involve in our decisions in selecting the vendor for web service and SEO, do we have to listen for branding company for the IT decisions . we would have accepted if they had refered good service provider. Please suugest can branding company involve in IT decisons in chossing the vendor.
Please suggest me in this
