Why Outsource to Mattern?
How Do We Begin Working With You?
If we agree there’s potential, the next step is to review your current situation, contracts and expenses. For many firms, we sign an NDA which enables them to begin sharing detailed information with confidence. We’ll then prepare a proposal outlining the potential savings and benefits that could be realized from Mattern’s services.
70-80% of firms who receive a proposal from us, move forward with Mattern! That’s how comprehensive our approach—and benefits—are for our customers.
Frequently Asked Questions
how we work with you and why firms like yours choose to work with us.
- “Why do your clients hire your firm to handle a matter instead of having their in-house counsel handle it?”
Most likely you would say your clients hire your firm because your firm has expertise in this specific situation, the resources available, and most importantly – the experience. In addition, your firm handles these types of matters every day, whereas your clients handle them once every five (5) years.
- “Do I have the time to devote to the project?”
You already have a job to do. Whereas this is what the consultant does every day and would devote the time necessary to it – leaving you free to take care of the day-to-day details of your job.
- “Do I have the contract know-how and benchmarking expertise to handle the process?”
No doubt about it, you’re smart and can learn what you don’t know. Whether you’ve done this process yourself before or not, having Mattern on your side adds the experience of more than 450 RFPs.
- “Can I realize similar savings that engaging a consultant would yield?”
If you know what you should be paying and what the market will bear, absolutely! However, this information is jealously guarded by vendors to make sure the deal is good for them. We’ve been able to improve pricing and terms over 50% of what firms had been able to get on their own.
On an ancillary note, if you look at the fee as a percentage of the total contract value, it’s typically around 1-2%. Even with the fee built in, we deliver on average 26% savings which illustrates how overpriced your contract currently is.
