Business challenges

Driven by the pressures of the world economy and its own aggressive transformation, our client was looking for ways to significantly reduce OPEX without disruption to its key infrastructure services. The corporate branch responsible for consolidating many of the infrastructure services for its sub-businesses was still tied to legacy staffing and fixed-price contracts, despite having outsourced many of its infrastructure support services.

1

Adapt to never-before-seen work economy pressures.

2

Comply with a corporate mandate to cut OPEX by 15-20% in 2020.

3

Swiftly react to revenue regression from deflating services consumption.

4

Increase visibility and governance of infrastructure assets.

How Softtek comes into play

Softtek’s right-value model was applied to help the client transition to an elastic consumption and invoicing model, increase overall engagement productivity through better governance and visibility, and continuously identify new opportunities for automation.
