Though there is no long term obligation most of our clients choose to extend Benson support annually. Our clients see Benson as a natual extension of their core bid, finance and/or strategic development function – and as such there are ongoing challenges and benefits. This includes ongoing access to health intelligence such as population level data, data analysis / refresh and access to new versions of the Benson models.
This provides ongoing access to the Benson models, reporting, benchmarking, and on site or remote support so Benson Wintere can assist with ongoing refresh, updates and development to support local initiatives and ensure the baseline model and future financial and operational forecasts are robust and up to date.
Typically the annual relicensing will trigger a review of objectives and challenges over the next year, training of new staff and sometimes would involve an onsite workshop to consult the local steering group. This may also provide an opportunity to share new areas of functionality, reporting or other enhancements in the client Benson models.
