BPI 3PL Services
BPI enables its customers to apply BPI solutions in any of the 4 Customer Business Model quadrants ….Enterprise, Hosted, 3rd Party Services, and Cloud including hybrids.The 3rd Party Services business model is applicable for companies that do not want to own BPI software but want to subscribe to services. There are many motivations for this including:
- The need to reduce cost on non-strategic processes where the company has no competitive advantage; and
- The company has scarce IT and/or business resources to manage operations and processes.
Because of BPI’s proven proprietary “Layered Technology” with its inherent multi-tenancy, power processing, and ease of configuration capabilities and benefits, BPI provides a perfect single instance environment allowing 3PS’ to pass significant services savings on to their customers while providing optimum security of customer data and other intellectual property.
Under this business model, the company subscribes to services from a 3rd Party Service provider that uses BPI as its engine. Examples of such providers include IMS Health and AmerisourceBergen ICS. The 3rd Party Provider (and/or in conjunction with BPI) handles all phases of implementation including:
- Planning & Analysis
- Deliver and
The implementation phase is typically much shorter and faster than an ‘Enterprise model’ as there is little customization. Once operational, companies simply pay a subscription fee to the 3rd Party Services (3PS) provider. In turn, the 3PS manages the technical and business processes as well as provides subject matter expertise (SME).
