OUTSOURCING PRICING MODELS
 
There are several types of outsourcing pricing models that can be adopted. Many outsourcing organizations these days use a “product” based approach whereby packaged solutions or services are bundled together to create a solution for the customer. This approach usually requires the customer to conform with the “standards’ laid down by the vendor. Many vendors will therefore include a “transformation” phase in the transition to the outsourcing vendor.

An alternative to a “product” based solution to ask the vendor to price the solution based on the resources required to meet the Service Level Agreements that you require. Often this is difficult because the vendor will tell the customer that they do not know how many resources are required to perform certain tasks because their resources are “leveraged”. If the vendor cannot or will not create a resource based model then you can use the Outsourcing Pricing Models on the Consulting Cloud Website to estimate what the price of the service from the vendor should be. The Outsourcing Pricing Models on the site will require you to estimates the number of resources (can be decimal points of resources) that you will need. You will also be asked what additional costs might be involved. These costs include software licensing, network costs, infrastructure etc.

By using the Consulting Cloud Outsourcing Pricing Models you can then compare the prices that your Outsourcing Vendor is proposing. This will reduce your risk and increase your chance of success.

The Outsourcing Pricing Models available on the site have all been used by several large IT Outsourcing Organizations.
