© 2022 by the authors. Licensee MDPI, Basel, Switzerland.In today’s environment, as the complexity of actual events develops, products become increasingly complicated. As a result, companies should collaborate to integrate disparate technologies while developing a product or service. Additionally, collaborating with the right supplier helps a company increase the flexibility, competitiveness, and profitability of its goods or services. The goal of this study is to look into the factors that influence supplier selection for speech recognition. Twelve sub-criteria for quality, affordability, maintenance, and adaptability are used to evaluate prospective providers. Two separate hybrid methodologies for finding the best supplier of an information technology product are presented. intuitionistic Fuzzy Due to the uncertainty of the data, VIKOR operates as the decision-making matrix and solves the issue by determining the ideal alternative for group utility using VIKOR. The second technique, Q-ROF TOPSIS, selects suppliers by utilizing q-rung orthopair fuzzy sets, which provides decision makers with greater expression flexibility than the majority of uncertainty-related strategies. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the recommended measures, a case study is conducted. The outcomes of various strategies are compared, as well as the associated advantages.
