Justified IT chargeback models

As organizations grow and acquire new companies, many shift to a model in which IT charges for internal services. An internal chargeback system may not seem consequential, but it opens a Pandora’s box of questions: How are services defined? How are they priced? How are they costed?

Vanguard Predictive Planning helps IT organizations create transparency and visibility around chargebacks (budget, cost, priced-based, etc.). Users can begin modeling various activities and services in minutes, starting their journey to a more mature IT service-delivery model. Additional features include:

  • Unit rate analysis and cost recovery
  • Cost forecasting
  • Allocation modeling
  • What-if scenario planning
