Springbord is capable of ramping up very quickly both in terms of people and output. We have access to highly experienced resources and hence, can manage considerable volumes in a short period. The following are examples of our ability to scalability.
M&A Database Creation: M&A database creation for a UK-based financial information provider, Springbord set up a team of 10 financial analysts to aggregate the deals of more than US$ 1 Million in deal size from all the emerging markets. The client expected us to create this database in 3 months time with at least 3000 deals captured. Springbord quickly expanded the team of analysts and reached the target within the stipulated time.
Airline Company Research: In the case of a company analysis assignment for a large UK-based research company, we set up a dedicated team of about 20 experts within 2 weeks and trained them to go live in another 2 weeks. Subsequently, this team went on to create more than 300 strategic company profiles for this client over a 2-3 month period.
We have in-house capabilities in data sourcing, crawler development, process refining and process automation. Springbord's employees adapt quickly and learn fast.
Based on the types of services provided and the volume/ duration of the assignment, various pricing models are available. The options include (a) per-deliverable basis (b) per man-hour basis. For instance, in cases of large volume projects with shorter delivery cycles, we will charge on a per-deliverable basis. e.g., patent searches. Projects requiring development and continuous analysis are charged on a per man-hour basis e.g., patent landscaping studies, portfolio analysis, etc. In addition, an FTE-based pricing option is also available. This is applicable when a dedicated team of Springbord experts is required for a specific project for a medium-long duration of time.
