Maximize Services Revenue from Enterprise CustomersDOWNLOAD WHITEPAPER
The emergence of the services economy over the past couple of decades – driven by the rise of outsourcing, cloud computing and Goods-as-a-Service (GaaS) – has created a $21T market for services ranging from IT, BPO, facilities management and logistics to telecom, healthcare, aviation and construction.
Over the past five to eight years, there has been a dramatic shift away from larger, monolithic deals to smaller, multi-sourced contracts. This combined with increasing costs and competition puts greater pressure on services suppliers to protect and improve revenue and profitability in strategic customer accounts. Suppliers need to transform the way they currently manage the order-to-cash (O2C) lifecycle in strategic accounts.
The traditional O2C process is disjointed, manual and distributed across different enterprise functions (sales, delivery, finance, etc.), which makes it more susceptible to risks, inefficiencies and financial leakage. Traditional enterprise technologies such as ERP, CRM and CLM, meanwhile, have struggled to support O2C process for non-PxQ revenue streams (i.e. services). The ineffective handling of the O2C process results in 3.8%-10% of revenue leakage through over-delivery/under-billing, poor account-level EBITDA from excessive governance costs, strained relationships due to inconsistent delivery performance and a general lack of transparency.
Enter Sirion. Sirion enables tight alignment between sales, legal, service delivery and finance by automating key O2C processes – contract management, delivery governance, invoice auditing and buyer-supplier collaboration – on a single, integrated platform. This results in improved revenues and profitability, reduced compliance risk and enhanced relationships in enterprise accounts.
Sirion enables a revenue increase by 2%-5% through tight alignment between contract, performance and invoicing, and improves account-level EBITDA by reducing account governance costs by 60% through automation.
