Paladin Delivers Cost Efficiency at The Core.
Never Again Over Pay for Core & IT Services.
- Founded and operated by former Core & IT vendor executives.
- Deep nationwide intelligence into vendor pricing, terms and conditions.
- Proven to increase shareholder value in mergers & acquisitions.
Today, more than ever, cost efficiency is imperative to the success of community financial institutions. This is why, in 2008, Paladin fs developed the industry’s first nationwide “Blue Book” on vendor pricing for Core & IT services. We stand as the only research and consulting firm that combines deep market research into fair market pricing and unmatched experience in negotiations to cut down cost on your Core & IT services. Paladin transforms associated vendor contracts to be more banker-favorable without the need to change primary vendors.
Since 2009, on average, Paladin has reduced expenses for clients by more than $960,000 per engagement. Once a new Core IT contract is restructured by Paladin we stick around providing research, market intelligence and current pricing for the life of the agreement insuring you never over pay for these services again.
It’s the Data.
At Paladin we take a unique data-driven approach to contract negotiations. We perform free research first, before asking to be paid for our consulting, advice or direction. Our business analysts confidentially review every single line and page of Core IT contracts and invoices at no risk or cost to you before providing an Executive Report of Findings (about 90 minutes of your time). We are the only firm with a continually evolving national research database, or Blue Book, on outsourced pricing, commercial terms and SLA language for all national and regional Core IT vendors. Paladin works with all aspects of your Core IT including:
Our business analysts are former vendor executives and know how to orchestrate a ‘win-win’ agreement. We strive to understand your immediate and long-term business strategies, needs and requirements—from new products and services to future M&A plans. In this way all replacement contracts and pricing are in perfect alignment with your forward-looking strategy and Fair Market Value.
