Reasons for IGS Accelerator as a key enabler to IGS CAPITAL
Major change drivers Not surprisingly, cost reduction with revenue acceleration supported by our Management Consulting COE as strategy together with upfront Change Management is the single most important driver behind the move to a shared services model. Other key drivers: better management information/decision support through cloud based collective intelligence for better decision making in a cost effective manner from anywhere, the need to align business services with a global operating structure, business-process integration following a merger, investment or acquisition, and improving customer service. Integrating into the overall cross selling VAR Structure and Global Customer Database. Driving more sales and increasing profitability.
On the cost-reduction front, four benefits in this order : 1:) cost savings as a result of using our COE’s from the start to enable and sustain this 2:) head-count reductions 3.) increased efficiency as a result of using our COE’s from the start to enable and sustain this 4.) lower cost locations. Shared Services’ role as a catalyst in the shift from a stand alone company into IGS CAPITAL Fund Project using a shared service structure.
1.) better decision support and new customer adoption, 2.) the development of common practices that benefit all companies associated by leveraging IGS Accelerator’s value. 3.) common data structures to share internally but all to drive predictive analytics with role based collective intelligence supported by guided procedures. 4.) co-innovation with shared development state of the art virtual COE support. Major barriers The single largest obstacle to implementing a COE shared service is getting the sponsorship from the associated companies and a resulting lack of communication. Change Management supported by proper executive is the key and must be performed from day one to enable the true value of IGS Accelerator as we have state of the art Management Consulting COE which understands the key divers for a successful strategy.
