Already providing services to FirstService Residential-managed associations?
You're familiar with our vendor verification process and we'd like to thank you for having teamed with us to provide the insurance, business, and license information our clients rely upon when they select your company to serve their communities. It goes without saying that your goal is the same as ours: to serve our association clients well and ensure that they are protected from unanticipated cost and risk by engaging licensed, insured vendors.
Not yet providing services to FirstService Residential's clients?
Our clients trust and expect us to deliver the very best. That's why we are extremely selective in reviewing the qualifications of the companies that serve the communities we manage. We seek business partners that share our commitment to on-time, on-target, and on-the-money customer service. If that describes you, we invite you to become a FirstService Residential Verified Vendor.
We have partnered with an independent business credentialing company - Vendor Information Verification Experts (“VIVE”) – to manage the verification process. New vendors are required to complete a vendor registration to become a Verified Vendor which includes providing licenses, W9 forms, and insurance documents as well as completing a questionnaire. Vendors are required to provide answers that are true, correct and current. You must register your company online through our third party partner, Vendor Information Verified Experts (“VIVE”). After submission and approval, vendors must agree to notify FirstService Residential immediately, via the VIVE website, to change the online records for your company if there is any occurrence or condition that may affect an association's decision to engage or to continue to work with the firm. Examples include but are not limited to: changes in insurance coverage and licenses.
Benefits you'll realize include:
An online registration portal to speed the process and eliminate paper;
Accessible, knowledgeable staff who work directly with you and your insurance agent to assist you in meeting requirements and staying current; and
The opportunity to upload marketing materials to a secure database. Our managers will be able to view your materials as they assist our boards in selecting service providers.
VIVE charges each registering vendor an annual fee of one hundred-fifteen dollars ($115) for verifying that your relevant insurance coverage and licensing meet all requirements. The fee is paid directly to VIVE.
