MaaS

Multi-national as a Service

cloudyBoss is first to market in providing MaaS (multi-national as a service). We call this innovative service Horizon+.

Designed for clients who want to remain in control of their business yet prefer a fully outsourced operational model. Horizon+ clients typically have a clear financial framework including capital sourcing.

Typical clients include:

 

  • Start-ups with a potential market extending beyond their immediate local territory and potentially internationally or globally who wish to reduce the risks derived from the lack of resources (capital, time and knowledge) to immediately scale internationally or globally
  • Existing organisations aiming to extend their geographical scope internationally or globally who wish to mitigate high costs and risks associated with their investment in an international or global strategy 
  • Existing organisations with a geographical scope extending internationally or globally who wish to avoid the High uncompetitive operational costs needed to maintain an international or global presence

 

The product delivery articulates around the following phases:

 

  • Discovery session with client
  • Sourcing of relevant International partners based on client operational requirements such as warehousing, logistics, contact centre, manufacturing, administration, offices and premises, country knowledge, etc. across the territories targeted by client. As well as a costing model.
  • Proposal review, fine-tuning and contract finalisation, including all costing.
  • Framework setup, including building the online environment similar to a NEXT project but connecting all operational dots with the selected partners.

 

It solves these problems by providing :

 

  • a cost-effective operational framework to immediately scale globally
  • a cost-effective operational framework to expand globally
  • a low-cost alternative to existing international operations

 

 

The core processes under an HORIZON MaaS arrangement include:

 

  • Strategy, funding and planning – Although this is fundamentally a client’s responsibility, cloudyBoss can provide strategic, funding and planning advices where required
  • Product/service development  – This is fundamentally a client’s responsibility however cloudyBoss could provide a fully localised co-creation platform for continuous product development
  • Product/service production/sourcing – Depending on the service/product, CB may be able to setup/organise via its partner network the provision of: 

 

– centralised multilingual contact centre resources or field services
– outsourced manufacturing facilities 

– a suitable supply chain

 

  • Purchasing would be managed via the cloudyBoss platform with, where need be, localised supplier invoicing/re-invoicing via a cloudyBoss proxy branch (including approval workflow)
  • Settlement would be managed via the CB platform with either centralised or localised payments via a cloudyBoss proxy branch (including approval workflow)
  • Product/service marketing – Depending on the service/product, cloudyBoss may be able to setup/organise via its partner network the provision of centralised and/or localised marketing resources
  • Product/service selling – This would be managed via the cloudyBoss platform with, where need be, localised invoicing/re-invoicing via a cloudyBoss proxy branch
