ENGAGEMENT MODELS

DEDICATED ANALYST…

Model: Analyst(s) works exclusively for a client as an extension of their internal team.

Works For: Client with regular research needs looking for stability in the team and the most cost-effective engagement.

Benefits: Same analyst (s) works with the client with steep learning curve and gains in efficiency as added benefits  l  The client has complete control over the selected analyst(s) work priorities and allocation

How It Works:

1. The client sends work profile and specific capabilities required

2. ABI shortlists analysts and organizes interview for analysts with the client

3. The client selects analyst(s) and gives a formal go-ahead with agreed upon monthly fees to be paid to ABI

4. The selected analyst(s) starts working with client from agreed upon date

5. Assigned Project Manager – a senior professional – provides local supervision and organizes training etc. for continuous growth of the analyst

6. The analyst, if needed, can work on remote desktop (VPN access) to ensure that data is not leaving the client’s network

PROJECT BASED…

Model: Analyst(s) works for the limited duration of a project.

Works For: Standalone project or short-term assignment or short-term ramp up in required research capabilities

Benefits: Client has access to specialists to meet the specific work requirements  l  For example, for marketing analytics & predictive modelling the team will have a data scientist, a marketing expert and a technology expert

How It Works:

1. The client sends specific project requirements

2. ABI prepares an in-depth proposal document outlining the scope of the work, solution framework, team profile, key interim and final deliverable, engagement & communication governance, related timelines and commercials

3. Through mutual discussion the proposal and interim/final deliverables are finalized

4. ABI team works on the project and follows agreed upon proposal and governance framework

5. A call is scheduled after each interim deliverable to update the client on progress, get the feedback and agree on next steps

6. After approval on the final deliverable by the client, analysts are staffed on other projects

BLOCK OF HOURS…

Model: The client purchases a fixed number of research hours to meet their research needs

Works For: Clients with regular but variable work-flow and variety of work that requires varied capabilities

Benefits: Provides the “best-of-both-world” – on-demand research support as in “dedicated-analyst” engagement yet not restricted to capabilities of one particular analyst as in “project-based-engagement”  l  No need for individual project approval from the vendor management team

How It Works:

1. The client and ABI agree on number of hours of research that the client would require in a fixed time-frame (e.g. 200 hours in a quarter)

2. The client and ABI also agree on the broad nature of research requirements and the skills / capabilities of analysts to be staffed on the client’s project

3. For each research requirements, the client team sends the scope of work and the ABI team prepares the solution framework, key interim and final deliverable and the required timeline

4. ABI team delivers the project as per the agreed framework and timeline

5. Regular engagement governance calls to ensure ABI team is aligned with client’s needs

ENGAGEMENT EXAMPLES & KNOWLEDGE LIBRARY

CASE STUDY 1

DEMAND FORECASTING & PRICE OPTIMIZATION FOR MAXIMIZING PROFITABILITY

THE CLIENT

An e-commerce company in India wanted to leverage big data analytics solutions to predict demand for products and optimize its pricing decisions with an objective to maximize profit potential

BUSINESS CHALLENEGE / SCOPE OF WORK

The client wanted to have an optimization and predictive modelling tool to able to price its products competitively. While the client had wealth of information and data, it was fragmented across multiple platforms and formats.

The scope of work included development of Big Data Analytics & Business Intelligence Platform to generate:

  • Actionable Insights on consumer, demand and pricing patterns to be able to predict demand
  • Simulation model to understand price & volume variance – elasticity – for multi-product price optimization decisions

ABI SOLUTION FRAMEWORK

ABI adopted a multi-pronged approach to design and implement analytics solution for the client:

  • Designating Analytics Platform: ABI’s data engineers built an analytics-ready data platform. This platform has capabilities to collect, validate and cleanse data across various time periods, multiple sources and formats. Automated tools for running analytics, predictive modelling, simulation, optimization and decision modelling were integral part of this platform.
  • Revenue & Customer Analytics: ABI team decomposed revenue streams into price and volume across products. geography, payment type, frequency, demand penetration etc. The team applied business logics at “atomic” levels to understand pricing and volume dispersion across multiple business scenarios
  • Business Intelligence Tool: ABI team developed simulation & optimization tools for the team to improve planning and allocate marketing resources efficiently. The in-built price volume elasticity benchmarks – both for the company’s historical prices and market competitive prices – enable better pricing decisions.

ENGAGEMENT BENEFITS

  • The client now has a Data-To-Decision tool that helps in identifying pricing efficiency / inefficiency and helps in re-pricing decisions on a real time basis
  • The client can evaluate price elasticity and dispersion across products and customer segments and potential to re-price
  • The client can use the customer segmentation, buying behavior and price points etc. to design marketing initiatives for cross-sell and up-sell
  • The client improved its margins by 4-percentage points in six months just on the basis of pricing optimization
