- Vendor Rationalization
During high growth times many organizations are unable to consolidate demand and leverage the total buying power of the organization. High growth environments with fragmented procurement can lead to a proliferation of vendors. Our assessment highlights any issues and provides opportunities to reduce licensing and operational costs, and consolidate vendors. We can work with your vendors in a collaborative manner which can otherwise be challenging for organizations given the conflicting interests that can often exist between customers and suppliers. Often the cost of the services is more than covered by the reduction in licensing costs alone.
- Enterprise Application Assessment
BCCH has developed a flexible, multidimensional software application assessment framework to aid in identifying existing and new applications. We identify the applications by version, departmental usage and what the application is used for. This analysis forms the basis for understanding application usage within your organization and reducing operating costs through vendor support, licensing, and help desk support.

Cost components within IT are rationalized and aligned with corporate objectives at both the business and IT level.

New highly efficient contingent labor (contactor) analysis systems and operational consolidation programs have proven to provide significant returns with short payback times.
