Professional Services: rethinking business models to deliver profitable client value.

Professional services firms are often seen as the vanguard of digital transformation for their clients. However, the simple “time and materials” business model that proved highly profitable for professional services organisations in the past is being replaced by an outcome-based business model.

In the wake of the recent global pandemic, remote working is becoming a long-term reality. Many organisations will opt to make remote working permanent, and the advent of emerging technologies and collaboration tools will increasingly ensure virtual work is productive, collaborative, flexible and cost effective.

delaware, as an IT solution provider, helps professional services firms by improving their operational efficiency, business responsiveness, and customer satisfaction.

We cover the entire business process of cross-industry professional services, from lead generation, opportunity management, project management, and project resource planning through to the follow-up processes in engagement management, such as invoice creation and analysis.

Enabling digitalisation to unlock value and efficiency

delaware recommends the intelligent suits of solutions from SAP which provides professional services firms with a proven framework to adopt industry best practices while attaining operational excellence across the full value chain.
ADV services spend their time chasing information. Bring them an integrated tool that manages opportunities upstream, define the terms of the contract, create a project structure and plan project financials. Your Delivery teams will also be winners: the real-time availability of contractual terms and conditions.
The main issue when it comes to invoicing is invoicing for the right service. Streamlining sales and billing will allow your firm to simplify and harmonise sales and payment processes to create a faster, more effective experience, as well as executing the right billing plan.

Professional services industry roles require travel and expenses. Anticipate these expenses by allocating them properly to projects. 

Monitor your actual margin and adapt or anticipate the staffing pitfalls of your teams.
Increase customer satisfaction and retention with a reliable, automated subscription billing process.
Digitise data and document management to make critical information simple to find in real-time.
