When selecting partners, we look for the very best of breed partners that we know we can count on to deliver high value to our customers. Sometimes there's a clear undisputed winner and sometimes there's a very competitive space with a number of very good options. Whichever is the case, it isn't worth wasting time with sub-optimal partners.
