Our Provider Ecosystem

We evaluate and curate the best emerging and proven providers.

In a world of rapidly emerging technologies and business models, we recognize that it’s important to work with a network of external platforms, partners, and providers. We have connected with companies that are creating the world’s leading-edge solutions, and bring those to our clients—along with a team of experts trained on how best to use them.

We help match our clients’ needs with the right set of providers. Then we help implement the selected solutions at scale, and build client capabilities so they can manage the providers themselves.

Our approach to working with an ecosystem is unique because we work with all leading solutions providers, which gives us the freedom to find the best solution for our clients. In some cases, we also have exclusive relationships with solutions where the capability is truly unmatched, and can provide greater impact to our clients. Ultimately we are committed to bringing the best ideas and solutions to our clients.

Specifically, we bring the following:

  • deep partnering  relationships with over 30 best-in-class solutions—to help clients rapidly identify opportunities and deliver business results
  • an active database of over 450 innovative solutions, allowing clients to quickly identify and evaluate solutions providers by accurately matching their capabilities to your needs
  • a close working relationships with all leading providers in key areas—including business process automation, CRM, marketing cloud, digital agencies, and systems integrators
  • a team of senior architects, many hired directly from key providers, who work side-by-side with our clients to optimize the way solutions are architected and implemented so that clients can get the greatest value  
  • a combination of world-class business management knowledge and experience with deep understanding of technologies, platforms, and solutions
