Home » Benchmarking Solutions » Cost vs Price Benchmarking
Benchmarks can be fundamentally broken down into two types: Cost Benchmarks, and Price Benchmarks. A Cost Benchmark applies when you are benchmarking your own, internal, in-house Service Desk, Call Center, or Desktop Support Group. A Price Benchmark, by Contrast, applies when you are benchmarking an outsourced Service Desk, Call Center, or Desktop Support function.
Cost Benchmarks are undertaken by organizations that wish to improve the performance of their internally operated Service Desk, Call Center, or Desktop Support Function. Typically the focus of a Cost Benchmark is to either reduce the cost of a function, or to improve the performance of a function. By contrast, a Price Benchmark is often undertaken by an organization that is contemplating outsourcing, and wishes to negotiate the best possible terms and conditions for their outsource contract, or by an organization that has already outsourced, and wishes to measure how their outsourcer is performing, possibly with an eye towards negotiating a more favorable contract with their outsource vendor.
