Questions when debating platforms?
»
What are you buying when you take on a platform?
»
How flexible is the solution to meet my needs today and into the
future?
»
What is the service operating model and performance – have you
been to see the “factory”?
»
How can they demonstrate strength and sustainability?
»
Do the costs represent value for my clients?
»
Are the terms suited to my client segmentation?
»
Is the product and investment choice sufficient?
»
Does the provider have momentum behind them?
