GlobalLogic’s main channel is its direct sales team. The company promotes its offering through its website, social media pages, and participation in trade shows, forums, summits, and conferences.
GlobalLogic’s customer relationship is primarily of a dedicated personal assistance nature. Employees work closely with customers as they assist them with their product development activities. That said, there is a self-service component. The company’s website features a “News and Insights” section that includes self-help resources such as white papers, blogs, and videos.
GlobalLogic’s business model entails designing and developing its services for customers.
GlobalLogic does not maintain any formal partnership programs.
GlobalLogic’s main resources are its human resources, namely the R&D employees that design and develop its services. Its staffers work out of “Delivery Centers” in the U.S., India, Ukraine, Argentina, Poland, Slovakia, and Croatia and “Method Studios” in the U.S. and UK. As a startup it has relied heavily on funding from outside parties, raising $42 million from two investors as of October 2013.
GlobalLogic has a value-driven structure, aiming to provide a premium proposition through significant personal service and frequent product enhancements.
Its biggest cost driver is likely cost of services, a variable expense. Other major drivers are in the areas of product development, research/development, and sales/marketing, all fixed costs.
GlobalLogic has one revenue source: revenues from the contracts clients sign to obtain its portfolio of services. Sales staff must be contacted directly for pricing as it varies by client and other factors.
