Free of Charge to Sourcing Managers within Buy-Side Organizations
As part of our ongoing research program, NelsonHall produces a wide range of NEAT tools to support strategic sourcing managers and BPS and ITS category managers across a comprehensive range of business process outsourcing and IT outsourcing service lines, both horizontal and industry-specific.
The NEAT (NelsonHall Vendor Evaluation and Assessment) tools for strategic sourcing managers are part of NelsonHall's "Speed-to-Source" initiative. The NEAT tool sits at the front-end of the vendor screening process and consists of a two-axis model: assessing vendors against their "ability to deliver immediate benefit" to buy-side organizations and their "ability to meet client future requirements". The latter axis is a pragmatic assessment of the vendor's ability to take clients on an innovation journey over the lifetime of their next contract. Accordingly, in line with NelsonHall's typically pragmatic approach, we're not focusing on vaporware or long-term visions. We're evaluating to what extent vendors can take clients on a journey of development over the life of the next contract.
To add further value, clients are able to input their own weightings, enabling sourcing managers to use NEAT as an interactive tool, tailoring it to meet their own specific sourcing requirements and criteria.
