    Operational Readiness and Change Management

    The key to a successful implementation is ensuring organizational readiness to navigate transformational change.

    Unbiased, Competitive Sourcing and Procurement

    Fortna engineers its designs down to component level, so we can drive a supplier selection process that nets the highest quality MHE solution at the most competitive price. Our extensive supplier vetting process qualifies suppliers on quality, delivery, and performance risk.

    We take a supplier-agnostic approach and engage a competitive bidding process that eliminates expensive middlemen. You get the leverage of Fortna’s purchasing power across its extensive client base for the lowest cost base and largest variety of supplier options.
