STAMFORD, Conn., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, will host an ISG Smartalks™ webinar, Leveraging Market Price Intelligence to Retain Your Outsourcing Clients, on Wednesday, December 12, at 10 a.m., U.S. Eastern Time.

The live, hour-long webinar will be hosted by Chris Pattacini, managing director, ISG Research, and Iain McLurcan, director, ISG Research, who will explore how the ISG ProBenchmark® market price benchmarking tool helps subscribers validate bids against the market, reassure provider clients they are offering fair market pricing and overcome issues that often arise during the bid process.

«Client stakeholders often assume they must recompete a contract in order to establish and receive fair market pricing,» said Phil Hugus, partner, ISG Research. «Our webinar will demonstrate how the most successful providers are strengthening their bids by proactively integrating independent benchmarking data to prove the fair market value of a bid and avoid the time, risk and cost associated with a recompete.»

The ISG ProBenchmark service is the largest independent source of benchmarking and market price intelligence in the world, providing on-demand, real-time access to data and sophisticated, customized models. The December 12 webinar will cover how subscribers are using ISG ProBenchmark to quickly predict market pricing, improve bid processes and avoid re-competition at renewal, and address how participants can benefit from the benchmarking and market price intelligence tool.

«There is a pressing need for a consistent method of establishing fair market value for contract requirements,» Hugus said. «Market price intelligence speeds up and improves bid accuracy and increases stakeholder confidence, without the need for external consultants. The patented analytics engine in ISG ProBenchmark gives users deep insight across a wide range of industry verticals and deal sizes, to generate optimal price comparisons.»
