Timely Delivery. Provider Accountability. Controlled Cost. Peace of Mind.
Project Services are complex. Multiple service providers working on a single project. On-and offshore workers. Numerous task orders within the scope of a single project. Different payment terms for each task. Many internal stakeholders with varying objectives for a single project. nextSource SOW Management goes beyond traditional MSP SOW solutions that stop at onboarding/offboarding providers and providing usage-level VMS support. At nextSource, we simplify the approach. We act as your sourcing coach, facilitate contracts and ensure compliance, confirm that each provider delivers against commitments, and provide the business intelligence needed to drive your desired results.
Every step in the process is streamlined, automating approvals and payments.
Greater Access to Talent
By identifying suppliers that bring the greatest value to your projects.
Through standardized workflows uniform
contracts and continuous oversight of project costs, expenses, and invoicing
Shrink the gap between the proposed and actual project scope/cost, eliminating scope creep and waste.
By providing visibility with on-demand
reports/analysis and market updates we continuously introduce program enhancements that drive value.
We apply the same level of attention to tail spend – those low-dollar purchases that are not strategically managed and lack the best negotiated prices and terms.
