Outsourcing Advice

Are you planning to outsource complex services to one or more providers?

Do you need a different outcome from last time?

Success starts with strategy!

Getting the strategy right is pivotal and will ultimately determine the overall outcome and ultimate success.  What do you really want to achieve – and how does this align with your underlying business objectives?  What are the strategic and tactical objectives?  What are the pros and cons of outsourcing vs. forming a strategic alliance, or insourcing/retaining existing internal capability? 

We help organisations answer these questions and help structure the way services are procured to meet business needs with the optimal mix of industry-leading SLAs, innovation, risk mitigation and full life-cycle cost.   

One strategy to deliver both outcomes is to outsource internally delivered services to provide cost savings or drive efficiencies. Outsourcing enables a business to focus on core activities, improve the quality of service whilst reducing life-cycle costs.

eXceeding can help you identify the optimal outsource blend by:

  • Developing a coherent strategy for outsourcing
  • Understanding your business process
  • Assessing strengths and weaknesses
  • Advising on the viability of outsourcing, based on facts and not emotions
  • Implementing controls that are appropriate to your organisation
  • Identifying appropriately sized providers, with cultures that are complementary to your organisations
  • Defining essential KPIs, SLAs and service credit regimes
  • Establishing the right commercial outcomes
  • Introducing step-change improvements
  • Creating certainty over your operations
  • Ensuring forecastable costs over the medium term
  • Increasing your attractiveness commercially and operationally to clients
  • Improving your company's agility
  • Making your organisation more competitive
