We are pleased to help our government customers contain costs and leverage economies of scale within their shared services organizations
San Mateo, Calif. (PRWEB) June 15, 2006
Digital Fuel, the leader in software solutions for the management of service level agreements (SLAs) and service cost management, today announced its silver sponsorship of G-CON: The Gartner Government Conference, a conference built exclusively for government IT decision-makers. G-CON will be held June 14-16, 2006 at the Washington DC Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. Digital Fuel will debut its service performance and service cost management solution for government and demonstrate how Digital Fuel can help government organizations better manage services received from both internal and external service providers and allocate cost or “charge back” based on the resources they consume.
Providing Government Organizations with Management and Oversight Capabilities
Digital Fuel’s service performance and service cost management solution provide government organizations with management and oversight capabilities with a view into the performance of services by all service providers, from both providers of Shared Services and external service providers. Digital Fuel’s ServiceFlow is a comprehensive enterprise software suite that not only provides government organizations with real time visibility to measure, manage and compare internal performance with external providers, but also helps reduce the cost to serve and comply; improve service quality; manage outsourcing risk; as well as control cost and reduce financial exposure.
"There is a need for government organizations to strongly consider the need to achieve economies of scale by consolidating IT, HR, F&A and other Services into Shared Services Centers. The efficiency gained by consolidating must be balanced by managing the effectiveness of the services delivered," said Stan Lepeak, Managing Director of Research at EquaTerra. "Service performance and cost management is a critical part of making sure that government organizations get what they pay for, ensure the highest quality of services, and are able to allocate costs appropriately based on service usage."
G-CON attendees will have the opportunity to see first hand how Digital Fuel’s service performance and service cost management solution for government overcomes the challenges associated with consolidation or shared services strategies. Digital Fuel executives will be available at booth E to demonstrate how governmental organizations can optimize service performance and better manage and allocate service costs.
