Easy to miss something important in transition

  • Relationships are at the centre of everything we do - including SUPPECO

Transition Modelling

Service continuity being paramount, our transition modelling practice ensures that individually, or collectively, third party agreements are assisted to transition seamlessly from one party to another; in parallel with contractually underpinned services, whether a change of supplier, transition to a new service recipient, or severing divestment.

Bid win strategies

We’ve implemented components of transition modelling for a number of successful pre-sales engagements.

Proud to say we’ve also been commended by several globally recognised brands for the value and insight these tools have created to support pre-bid win ratio, story-boarding the potential for on-going contract, service or transition management, as well as service optimisation purposes.

Business requirements

Engaging with business and IT, we firstly establish current and future functional needs, processing and converting the data into category or tower components.

This information is invaluable in shaping negotiations, whilst also helping to identify post transition stranded cost, which invariably occurs through external service re-structure e.g. divestment or outsource.

Licence Inventory Analysis

Our comprehensive reports show metadata breakdown, as volume, asset allocation, geo or entity restriction, and maintenance; with the versatility to manipulate and model an estate so that alternative arrangements may be commercially considered.

Helpful to organisations that re-structure, or where change of divested legal entity affects rights of use.

Supplier Assurance

We advise that supplier assurance be implemented as best practice; a critical undertaking prior to entering into contracted relationships with new service providers – as well as being reviewed periodically thereafter.

Supplier assurance may refer to some or all of the measures listed here, to ensure the existence and adherence to policy, such as environmental policy, code of conduct, corporate social responsibility. This may include checking statuary compliance with legislation such as the modern slavery act 2015 and certainly the general data protection regulations. It may also where relevant include audit assistance with verification of ISAE3402 SOC1 or SOC2 compliance.

In order to keep risk to our clients to a minimum it is vital to continually monitor previously approved suppliers. This requirement should be met by repeating supplier assessments on a periodic basis.

Secondary Tupe Assessment

Revised servicing arrangements as a result of outsource, divestment, or other separation may invoke obligations under the Transfer of Undertakings Protection of Employment Regulations or TUPE.

Our TUPE tracker assesses the circumstances of suppliers where services are impacted by re-structure and where TUPE is likely to apply. The tracker analysis is a component of Transition Modelling.

Retained Impact Analysis

Retained impacts typically occur from changes to contract landscape and consequently price break entitlement, normally through down-size, re-shape or demarcation of existing services.

A core output of transition modelling, that supports management and mitigation of commercial risk, associated with outsource or divestment related separations.

Transition Modelling Analysis

Our process for capturing and analysing volume contract metadata (e.g. T&Cs’, licence data, dates, costs, breakage) for the purpose of transferring, consolidating and optimising spend and services – usually for outsource, divestment, M&A.

A fundamental precursor to outsource, and one that we’ve been commended for by a number of the worlds best known brands.

Volume Novation Separation

Volume separations come in a variety of dynamics. Larger managed service contracts will invariably conceal a number of 3rd party contracts, especially where infrastructure related services are involved.

Novation (replacing one participating party of a contract with another) may be sort to ensure continuity of strategic or critical services and relationships, or to maintain compliance with longer term corporate strategy.

Managed Agency Tracker

Software managed services may be configured several ways. Non asset based management referred to here as agency management, indicates that software catalogue ownership remains unchanged, but day to day management, may subject to consent, be transferred to a service provider, normally at reduced cost of ownership.

Our Agency, or full transfer arrangements, for the purposes of consolidating retained functions, and optimising spend and services – usually refer to outsource, divestment, or M&A integrations.
