In today’s environment, there is a saturated landscape of service and technology vendors that provide a multitude of client focused solutions. As a result, it can be challenging to deliver solutions that are integrated and provide maximum value. Conducting complex vendor evaluations, selecting, and structuring contract transactions can pose a challenge for those looking to optimize the benefits of a solution as well as the long-term viability of the relationship they are fostering.
Avasant acts as a strategic partner to our clients, guiding them through the process of architecting an ideal business solution. Executing a transformation strategy may require different service integrators, implementing different software, utilizing different tools, and being hosted on different traditional and SaaS platforms. These solutions all carry the potential of being constrained by compliance, regulatory, and cyber risk concerns. The complexities that surround an integrated solution require a team of experts that provide a structured vendor selection process and minimize the possibility of misaligned expectations between buyers and vendors. Our robust evaluation framework captures a vendor’s capabilities and ability to integrate into a client’s transformation goals.
Transformation has given way to new contracting models that simplify the way clients buy services. Models now have standardized terms, fees, and service levels. This is a crucial deviation from traditional contracts where there is room for negotiations to help mitigate risk. Avasant has the technical expertise to assist in contract development and negotiations when required. In the midst of a changing environment, our assistance facilitates alignment between the client and vendor throughout the course of their partnership.
