To compensate for this, service providers are expected to increase the prices of their services. In view of this, this procurement intelligence report has listed the top retail analytics service providers, SLA agreement insights, and the selection and negotiation strategies that buyers must undertake to achieve optimal procurement in this market.
Engaging with service providers who offer a single end-to-end retail analytics solution
Using a patchwork of tools/solutions to make them accessible across multiple platforms to fulfill buyer’s retail analytics service requirements entails a high cost of maintenance, the need for training, and limits cross-team collaboration. It is advised that buyers partner with retail analytics service providers who utilize a single end-to-end retail analytics solution that helps in real-time self-service visualization and data discovery across multiple platforms.
Adopt FTE-based pricing model
Buyers are advised to adopt the FTE-based pricing model while engaging with service providers. It reduces managerial complexities as prices are fixed at the beginning of the contract.
