  • But…..  Good was no longer good enough  We needed to do more  Support for new initiatives like Digital Signage  Spanish language support  Productivity Gains  Documented and Shared  We wanted a new type of relationship www.toshiba-solutions.com
  • We issued a challenge  To HP  And 10 of their closest friends  Issued an RFP in January 2012  One year prior to contract’s end  Phase 1:  Down select to 5  Phase 2:  Down select to 2  Selection in October  Transition scheduled for 4Q ‘12 www.toshiba-solutions.com
  • Changing Our Thinking  HP provided an excellent response and easily advanced through the process  But, we weren’t quite getting what we wanted  A few important things happened:  We were frank  Productive dialogue  We discovered that:  While we knew what we wanted  Our RFP didn’t necessarily reflect that www.toshiba-solutions.com
  • We needed to change our thinking too  We opened up a new dialogue  We delayed the discussion on how until we were crystal clear on what  SLAs  Scope  Cost  Gain Sharing  What we wanted was to buy an outcome and not a specific implementation www.toshiba-solutions.com
  • Working toward a better solution  The new proposal included some important changes  Near-shore resources  Relocation of personnel  that presented challenges  Retaining formal and tribal knowledge  Short time frame to execute  but the rewards were worth it  Lower cost  Better coverage  Spanish language support  Knowledge base and ticketing software www.toshiba-solutions.com
  • HP Delivered  Reduced Cost by 10% annually  Transition costs amortized over the life of the contract  Well Conceived and Delivered Transition plan  Seamless transition  Retained Associate Knowledge  Implemented new case management and knowledge base solution www.toshiba-solutions.com
  • Summary  We were compelled to re-think our approach to supporting customers  Changing Industry Dynamics  Customer Expectations  Aligning strategy with those who execute it was initially a challenge  When we did, however, the results were great  Thanks to the HP and Toshiba teams that made it happen www.toshiba-solutions.com
