Event Explores How Service Providers Can Achieve Greater Business Success

Digital Fuel, the leader in software solutions for Service Level Agreement (SLA) Management and Service Cost Management and EquaTerra, a multi-national outsourcing and insourcing advisory firm are hosting a webinar entitled: Enabling More Effective Service Relationships. The webinar will focus on what is important to customers in outsourcing service relationships and building that into the management of service level agreements (SLA) - the business and contractual obligations that define the service relationship. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, September 7, 2006 at 11:00 am EST.

Measuring and Managing Outsourcing Satisfaction & Success

Stan Lepeak, Managing Director with EquaTerra, will discuss the findings from a recent EquaTerra study titled: Measuring and Managing Outsourcing Satisfaction & Success. The key challenge for any organization undertaking ITO or BPO efforts is to ensure that the goals of those efforts are actually achieved. As outsourcing buyers seek more performance related - and subjective - goals from outsourcing, such as process improvement and transformation, or the ability to shift focus to more strategic activities, it becomes more difficult to manage against these goals.    The study highlights what companies look for from their Service Providers.

Service Providers Leverage Innovative Solutions

Tom Schaefer, Executive Vice President with Digital Fuel, will take a practical look at how Service Providers can meet the need to verify performance as well as substantiate progress on broader strategic goals. Attendees will learn first-hand how Service Providers are using innovative SLA Management software today to automatically apply business processes to manage performance and effectively collaborate with their customers to lower costs while increasing service levels, quality, and business value.

In addition, attendees will hear about ways to:

  •     Provide greater value to clients
  •     Strengthen trust in the service provider/client relationship
  •     Reduce cost to serve

This Webcast will provide Service Providers with insight into what clients seek from their outsourcing relationships, with the information necessary to enable mutually beneficial service relationships.
