Outsourcing Governance

Maximize outsourcing value. Minimize costs.

Companies spend billions of dollars every year on outsourced services—but as spending has gone up, the perceived value of outsourcing has gone down. Companies are becoming less satisfied with their outsourced teams, citing a lack of innovation and a reactive, rather than proactive, response to problems. It can be difficult to manage employees who are thousands of miles away, and with no visibility into daily operations, and a lack of alignment between client and outsourced vendor goals, it’s easy to see why so many companies aren’t getting the results they want from outsourced teams.

Another problem with outsourcing governance is a lack of trust and accountability. Most contingent workforce management solutions rely on an honor system, with vendors self-reporting hours and data about their work/capacity utilizations. Clients often question the accuracy of the information they receive from vendors. Sapience for vendor management provides real-time visibility into daily work, bringing unprecedented transparency and accountability to outsourcing arrangements—and enabling smart enterprises to maximize potential. We can also greatly reduce software costs, with built-in IT asset management tools. Improve your contingent workforce management with Sapience.
