Coeus’ approach for the development and execution of managed service and multi-source agreements is to follow its standard methodology, which is tailored to meet the specific needs of the client organisation, ensuring all of the requirements and individual elements of our clients are fully incorporated.

The reason for taking this approach is that it provides a holistic, end-to-end view, ensuring Coeus can capture and validate all of the pre-requisites to the proposed negotiation.  It also ensures that the ongoing planned method for the management and optimisation of the service, through methods such as SIAM, are fully incorporated into the negotiation and contract formalisation phases.  In addition, this approach helps us to identify key challenges and how to potentially mitigate these throughout each phase for the implementation of a managed service / multi-sourced agreement.
