strategies for success
IT industry has shown tremendous growth in the last two decades, creating the need for
robust engagement/pricing models to meet changing business needs. Resultantly, customers
are looking for benefits beyond cost savings and service improvements. This has led to
the emergence of more innovative, non-linear and agile pricing models that go beyond just
understanding customer needs. Therefore, a successful pricing model is the one that strikes the
right balance between client’s expectations of quality, timeliness, price, and service provider’s
cost and operational efficiency.
