SAP Consulting, Technical Support, and Supplemental Staffing
Our second goal is to provide our resources at lower rates than our competitors. We achieve this by keeping expenses low and passing those savings on to our clients.
By far the largest expense for a consulting company is their staff. Great employees are incredible assets to any organization, but SAP consultants can be very expensive to employ, especially when they aren’t actively billing a client. The more consultants a company has on staff, the greater the chance some of them are not billing for large parts of the year which ultimately costs the company hundreds of thousands of dollars which they have to make up for by raising rates on their consultants who are billing a client. Connect2Client only hires a small percentage of the consultants we work with and those we do hire are some of the very best who are always in demand. The majority of the consultants we work with are independent consultants who are only paid when they are actively billing a client, meaning no extra payroll cost to Connect2Client. This policy creates large financial savings which we can then pass on to our clients through lower rates! The obvious concern about this practice is the quality of work of consultants who are not direct employees; however, we have been providing SAP consulting services for 15 years and have always received extremely high quality work from our independent consultants. Also, keep in mind an employee who does a poor job for a client is only risking their job whereas an independent consultant who does a poor job for a client is risking their entire career!
Another way we help keep costs down for our clients is by helping to reduce travel expenses. Because of our extensive network of consultants who are located all over the United States, we often have local consultants for our clients which eliminates the added cost of having to pay for travel expenses.
