Strategic Sourcing Services Overview

Outsourcing can deliver clients’ tangible benefits whilst allowing the outsourced service provider to make profit – these need not be mutually exclusive. The trend in the last two decades is for poorly scoped and aggressively negotiated deals that are not agile nor adaptable leaving managed service providers (MSPs) with the binary choice of delivering a quality service or making a profit. Done well, outsourcing enables strategic advantage and competitive differentiation.
