What risks does a business face when buying directly from a supplier?

First, make sure you fully understand the contract, which can be complex and include several risks. Second, make sure you familiarize yourself with all the charges and the total monthly cost for the new supplier. Next, make sure the supplier is financially strong and delivers accurate billing. Finally, make sure the supplier delivers every service it tells you it will deliver and ensure you have a way of recovering incorrect charges in a timely manner.
