A medium-sized financial service provider needed ad hoc a suitable sub-project management and the known service providers were not available
A medium-sized financial service provider with a limited project budget and high time pressure was looking for a new sub-project manager at short notice. Furthermore, the slow, internal purchasing processes were to be avoided in order to enable a quick assignment.
The solution was a digital procurement channel for consulting service providers in which consulting requirements were proactively reported and services were invoiced centrally and comprehensibly in the sense of a 1-creditor model
The company opted for a digital platform that offers free consulting capacity. Framework agreements with standardized daily rates and hierarchical levels from established consulting firms were used, which enabled an efficient call up of free consulting capacities, while at the same time the project managers could report their consulting needs independently. All this in terms of a 1-creditor model.
In the past, classic personnel service providers or freelancer portals have already been tried out. However, the complexity of control and the ANÜ risk with freelancer assignments increased steadily. In addition, there were constant sales calls and contractual constraints to carry out follow-up orders with certain platforms.
In addition, individual framework agreements were concluded with various consulting firms. This led to high administrative expenses that were not rewarded because the agreed prices were often not attractive due to the poorer negotiating position and availability was not guaranteed.
