Business context

Managing the service lifecycle for multiple customers and environments can quickly become a complex operation. Keeping track of configuration Items (CI’s) under support, ensuring contract pricing reflects the services being provided, keeping contracts up to date whilst tracking changes, and generating clear invoices that are accurate for a changing landscape of services and supported assets, can be a headache for all MSP’s.

A clear solution is needed that can provide real time visibility of how each contract is performing so that trends can be identified, and any required corrective actions can be implemented quickly and transparently.

Our solution

Expertware has created an integrated set of services that together solve the difficulties inherent in implementing Service Lifecycle Management (SLM).

xPertSLM integrates the following Expertware solutions:

  • xPertRecord: gathering data from multiple sources to create a single gold record for each CI under contract.
  • xPertPrice: Used the data from xPertRecord along with custom pricing algorithms to accurately price and track contract value
  • xPertContract: Stores digital copies of contracts and manages changes during the contract lifecycle so that you always know what contract terms were in place when.
  • xPertTime: gathers time related data such as timesheets for work carried out under the contract.
  • xPertInvoice: Utilizes data from xPertRecord, xPertPrice, xPertTime, and xPertContract to generate accurate invoice for any given time period.

All data is segregated by customer and by contract to enable the full contract lifecycle to be managed using integrated data streams and custom workflow solutions. Configurable reports and dashboards are provided giving clear visibility of the contract path. The solution is priced using a subscription model based on the number of CI’s under contract.

xPertSLM adds Value by:

  • Generate accurate data about CI’s from all available sources of information.
  • Quickly and accurately price services based on CI’s.
  • Capture Pricing and contract agreements using block chain.
  • Track Contract evolution – Know exactly what agreement was in place when.
