How it Works

AlphaZetta is the first global consultancy for independent analytic experts. Here we explain how it works for each of our membership types.

how it works
How it Works2021-02-26T01:51:35+00:00

For Experts

To break free of large vendors, collaborate and work direct

01 – A great way to source work contracts – onshore and offshore2016-12-28T09:15:28+00:00

For many of us as independent freelancers, in the rapidly growing ‘gig economy’ it’s our freedom, ability to control our work, keep to our values and manage our life balance that we treasure. If only we didn’t have to worry about sourcing future work!

AlphaZetta was founded with a mission to provide a better way to source work together.

As a community of analytic experts, we bring new projects and opportunities to each other.

As a Member you will have access to a growing list of analytic projects and consulting opportunities.

By joining the AlphaZetta community you join a network of like-minded analytic experts spread across the globe. Each of us has our own contacts clients and projects. As individuals, we come across many opportunities that are outside our personal skill set. By joining together, we can introduce each other to these opportunities. Members post these opportunities as projects on the site, for others to apply for.

AlphaZetta also gives clients a one stop shop to source the specialist talent they need, at a much lower cost than big consulting firms or vendors. Clients also post projects and contracting opportunities directly into the AlphaZetta site, expanding further the open opportunities for Members.

AlphaZetta is a Cloud for analytic expertise and talent. You can spin up a project team, source a specialist, get one hour of help right through to using AlphaZetta as a long term resource augmentation partner.

Although AlphaZetta is the first of its kind for independent analytic consultants, this model has been extremely successful in other areas of consulting. The rise of the ‘gig economy’ is being fueled by two powerful trends. On one hand, clients are increasingly sourcing freelance specialist talent to boost their internal analytic teams, moving away from the high cost large firms. On the other, many analytic experts are going independent or to small firms, moving away from the culture, values and politics of the large consulting firms and vendors. Together these forces are reshaping the consulting industry.

At the start, we are a small group of like-minded individuals. As we link together, and as each new Member joins we will get stronger together. The list of work opportunities will grow. The value for clients will increase and the client list will grow. Join us in the revolution and let’s make a better way of working together.

02 – No membership fees and a low-cost booking fee means more for you!2016-12-28T09:56:36+00:00

There are no membership fees. Sign up is free. And there are no ongoing fees.

Instead, AlphaZetta charges a simple 20% booking fee on contracts. This fee is included in the rate charged to clients, for introducing the opportunity and managing and processing the bookings.

Traditional big consulting firms typically mark up their resources by 250% to 300%. For junior resources and offshore resources, it can be significantly higher. We believe it’s too high. We believe experts should get more of the pie and clients should also pay less.

The AlphaZetta model is designed to let the experts earn their fair share.

There are many reasons why the big firms mark up their costs so high, from their expensive office buildings, to layers of back office management, their senior management and, of course, the highly paid managing partners that often vanish once the project begins. All these costs must be covered by the rates they charge out their experts. AlphaZetta does away with all this overhead, so that both clients and experts get a better deal.

03 – Build your own business by introducing other members to your clients2021-02-15T04:25:29+00:00

As freelance analytics consultants, we are limited to taking individual contracts and it can be hard to expand. Now there is an easier way to build up your business, without having to hire your own staff.

Collaboration is a key part of the AlphaZetta community and it comes with rewards.

When you introduce another AlphaZetta Member to a contract with a client, you will earn 5% of the contract value as a collaboration reward.

So now you can build your business by introducing work for others!

Collaboration Rewards are paid from the AlphaZetta booking fee and help keep each Member incentivized to help the community. They are a great way of recognizing those who create new opportunities for others.

04 – Collaborate to make a team, take on bigger opportunities or build an app!2021-02-15T04:25:39+00:00

One of the key benefits of joining AlphaZetta is the ability to form or join other project teams to support larger project opportunities or to get a group together to build out your idea for the next big application. As the lead, you can construct the terms and source others to help.

You can spin up an entire team and bid for a large project.

By posting your opportunity to the AlphaZetta community, other members can form a team with you, or you can join their teams, to go after larger projects. The team can use all the resources of the community and can contribute the required presales time to successfully bid for your project.

If you need help with managing the contract, we can introduce one of the AlphaZetta consulting firm members to work with you. Or if you just want to pass on the whole project to others, as the introducer, you can still earn a project collaboration reward of 5% of the value.

If you have a cool idea and need others to help make that a reality, you can post a project inviting others with like minds to join you. And once you have built it, you have a ready made channel to go to market with. Post your newly built solution on the site and go global day one!

05 – Your own instant company, just print your business card and go!2016-12-28T11:56:47+00:00

Once you have been accepted as a Member all the AlphaZetta resources are available to you and you can go to market using the AlphaZetta brand, with the instant credibility of a large community at your side.

We take care of a lot of the back office, like the billing system, website, an AlphaZetta email and timesheets, so you can stay focused on your clients. And if you are new to being a freelance analytics consultant we can share tips on how to get set up and get working.

Once you have your Members log-in you can access the member’s area with:

  • Project and Contracting opportunities
  • Solution ideas and templates
  • 3rd Party HW/SW and Tools from our Partners

All you need to do is print your AlphaZetta business cards and go!

06 – Collaborate with the global consultancy for support and specialist expertise2016-12-28T11:58:22+00:00

One of the challenges of being a freelance consultant is being without the resources of a larger firm and without the peer network. There are times when you are onsite and you need to get help, specialist knowledge or just to bounce ideas off another expert.

As a member of AlphaZetta you have the backing and support of the whole consultancy. You can reach out to other members for help, collaboration and sharing. If you need very specific support you can also hire other AlphaZetta members for their knowledge, even if it’s just for a few hours to review something.

All the benefits of being independent with all the benefits of a big firm network!

07 – You own your IP, AlphaZetta will even help you market it!2016-12-28T12:02:02+00:00

In a refreshing break from traditional companies AlphaZetta believes that its Members should own the IP they create* assuming its created free of any client contractual obligations or rights. It’s one of our core principles. If you create a methodology, write code, develop a cool app or use case it’s your creative effort and we respect your IP.

We will also help you market your IP to others. Once you have been accepted as a Member, you can post any IP you own or create to the AlphaZetta Market Place and list it for sale on your own terms. If other Members or Clients would like to use your IP for their projects they can purchase it there.

*IP here refers strictly to work assets created free of any contractual arrangements entered with your clients. AlphaZetta reserves the right to delist members for any violation of client IP rights.

08 – Collaboration rewards unlock extra income!2021-02-15T04:26:01+00:00

Collaboration is a key philosophy within the AlphaZetta community and we believe you should be rewarded for it. We aim to create an environment where AlphaZetta individual members can build a business beyond selling their own time.

AlphaZetta offers 4 ways to earn rewards for collaboration and boost your business!

  • Introduce another Member’s services to a client, 5% of the value of the services.
  • Introducing a New Member to AlphaZetta.
  • Introducing A New Project To AlphaZetta, 5% of the project value.
  • Successfully Referring an AlphaZetta 3rd Party Partner HW/SW sale, rates vary by partner.

Altogether it means there are 4 different ways to build your own business within the AlphaZetta community.

Participation in Collaboration Rewards is optional. For all the details see Terms and Conditions on the site.

11 – How do we ensure quality in the AlphaZetta community?2016-12-28T12:18:15+00:00

It’s important for all of us joining the AlphaZetta community that we ensure each of us represents ourselves accurately and honestly and that we perform our engagements at standards that reflect the community. AlphaZetta is not an open database of contractors, we are a community that collaborates together on projects. We actively use peer to peer reviews to ensure we keep the integrity of the community.

On joining AlphaZetta every Expert Member, must go through an acceptance review with a Managing Partner. They ensure that new Members accurately reflect their skills in their profile, companies reflect their capabilities and can deliver what they profess. In this way, every member personally knows and has met other Members.

We want to ensure the community has the right mix of skills and that each Member delivers to the standard the community expects.

For every engagement, we take two-way feedback, a bit like Uber. We get feedback from both the Client and the Expert Member. Unlike Uber we don’t openly publish this to the wider community and clients. Sometimes there can be very specific circumstances on projects which effect this feedback and consulting has significantly lower volumes than taxi rides, so one off feedback can adversely impact someone. Where the feedback warrants it, we reserve the right to delist Members from the community.

07 – A great way to build, test and market your apps and IP2021-02-15T04:24:56+00:00

AlphaZetta is a great way to make your cool idea a reality.

All Members are welcome to bring to the community their own IP, applications and methodology. We value and respect your ownership of these assets and want to help you develop and market them. We believe that its the innovations from small firms and freelance experts that drive breakthroughs in the industry. For too long the large players have held the advantage purely because of their scale. AlphaZetta aims to give scale to the small innovators, level the playing field and change the game!

If you have an idea, just post a project to the community and get other like minded experts to join with you to make it a reality.  If you have an existing team but need very specialist advice or help, search for the expert you need and engage them. Want to test it out – post it to the community and get feedback and ideas directly from other experts.

Once its built – go global from day one!!

The AlphaZetta community acts as an extended sales force for your IP, applications and methodology.  By listing them internally in the solutions market place, other members can introduce them to their clients when they have the need. You can list them for sale to other members or offer them as partner tools and apps with an incentive for members who originate opportunities. You set your the rates, terms and conditions.

We take IP ownership of our members very seriously and work to protect the rights of the individual innovator. Any member of the community that violates the rights of others are removed without questions and we will work with you as the innovator to take any further action.

06 – Low cost, transparent fees2016-12-31T06:28:51+00:00

There are no membership fees. Sign up is free. And there are no ongoing fees.

As a company member you can contract in AlphaZetta consultants to augment your projects or you can contract out your own consultants into other AlphaZetta projects.

AlphaZetta charges a simple 20% booking fee on each contract.  It is added to the daily rates charged by the consultants. The 20% fee is for introducing the opportunity and managing and processing the booking.

From time to time, the AlphaZetta community may also originate larger projects on fixed terms or other conditions for your company. As large analytic projects can be complex, fees for this type of project are worked out on a case by case basis.

05 – Improve utilization2016-12-31T06:29:38+00:00

AlphaZetta provides a unique way to improve the utilization of your own team, so you can grow.

AlphaZetta allows you to put your consultants to work on other small projects, to smooth the peaks and troughs in your growth rates. This can significantly improve your net margins and lower the risk in building up your team size.

It also provides access to a trusted variable cost talent pool, to boost your team on demand. Allowing you to pitch for new projects with the full confidence that you can staff and manage them.

04 – The option to take on projects for other AlphaZetta members2021-02-15T04:24:41+00:00

Many project requests that AlphaZetta receives need to be led by a consulting firm or company. They are just of a size or a client type that requires a company, rather than an individual, to manage the project. As AlphaZetta is made up of many individual freelance consultants, its common they need to introduce a company to manage their larger projects and opportunities.

These projects are shared between the AlphaZetta consulting firm or company Members, based on their speciality, focus and geography.

Its another way you can grow.

01 – A great way to source new opportunities and increase sales2016-12-31T06:35:40+00:00

For many small analytic companies, the cost of growth can be a challenge. The investment to win new clients and expand to new markets is high.

AlphaZetta was built to provide a better way to grow by sourcing new work together.

As a community, we bring new projects and opportunities to each other and collaborate together to go after larger projects.

As a Member, you will have access to a growing list of analytic projects and opportunities. You can also use the experts, solutions and partner apps to scale up your service to your existing clients.

Each of us has our own contacts, clients and projects. As individuals, we come across many opportunities that are outside our specialist area. By joining together, we can introduce each other to these opportunities.

For our Clients, AlphaZetta also makes it easier, a one stop shop to find the right specialists. Think of AlphaZetta as a ‘Cloud for analytic talent’ or ‘open source analytic consulting’.

Although AlphaZetta is the first community for analytic experts, this form of working has been extremely successful in other areas of consulting.

At the start, we are a small group of like-minded individuals. As we link together, and as each new Member joins we get stronger together.

Join us in the revolution and let’s make a better way of working together.

For Clients

To source expert analytic talent and advice at a lower cost

1 – Direct access to the experts, your cloud for analytic talent2021-02-15T04:26:30+00:00

AlphaZetta solves the problem of getting access to expert analytic talent.

Just like Cloud computing but for analytic resources, now you can access a pool of specialist analytic experts directly, on tap, on demand. Spin up and disband project teams rapidly and cost effectively. Get access to very specialised consultants, just for when you need them. Onshore and offshore. From an hour of advice right through to fully managed projects on a long term basis, AlphaZetta provides a pool of talent to augment your internal team.

With the rise of Big Data, IOT, Open Source and the Cloud, a revolution is underway as analytic technology becomes easily accessible to all, at dramatically lower costs. Yet for many the promises of this revolution have been frustratingly hard to unlock. Access to the right expert talent has become a significant barrier. Building the internal competency in-house is costly and takes time. Contracting through the large traditional consulting firms can be extraordinarily expensive, beyond the reach of many budgets.

AlphaZetta gives you direct access to a global community of qualified independent analytic experts, without the overhead and cost of the traditional big consulting firms and vendors. We get the gig economy working for you, a one stop shop to make it simple and fast.

Once you have joined as a client, you have access to the AlphaZetta community of independent analytics experts to search and select your team or individual. Find who you need in minutes. You are free to shortlist and interview candidates and can negotiate directly with them for your specific requirements. Once you have your team, you’re good to go! We can bill directly or follow your company’s usual contracting process.

2 – Post a project and spin up your team2021-02-15T04:26:42+00:00

If you know what you need just Post a Project and let the experts apply directly. Its easy to do and takes just a few minutes!

Projects can be posted for an individual contract right through to large programs requiring many people and solution components.

But they can also be posted just for ideas. If you need experts to collaborate on your new idea or to help shape a concept, post it as a project and let the community respond with expressions of interest and ideas.

Once your project has been posted it is only available to the AlphaZetta experts internally in our secure site. All AlphaZetta Expert Members have been vetted before acceptance and they must log in with their credentials to access projects. We will not post your project externally and other Client Members can not see your project. All responses to your project come to you.

3 – Let us do the work for you, free search and project scoping and advice2016-12-26T08:31:09+00:00

Sometimes it is not easy to work out exactly what you need and who is right for your project or team. And it can take a lot of time, interviews and trial and error to find the right people.

That’s where we come in. Just tell us what you need and we will help get your answer.

An AlphaZetta Managing Partner is on hand to help you pick the right consultants for your project or team if you need it. They are supported by our proprietary search algorithms that help match experts to clients and they add many years of deep practical experience to help you get the best selection possible.

For complex or large projects AlphaZetta Managing Partners are there to help you shape, scope and structure your project. They can help you work out what the best way is to tackle your project, how long it is likely to take and estimate what the total budget will need to be.

4 – All the benefits of a large firm, none of the overheads and costs2016-12-26T08:31:45+00:00

AlphaZetta is not just a database of qualified analytic experts . We collaborate as a community to solve your problems and offer solutions, best practices and methodologies. We are a digital consultancy with all the benefits of a traditional consultancy, just none of the overheads!

We source genuine experts with backgrounds in large clients and large vendors, with hands on experience working on some of the most challenging analytics projects globally. All members are vetted personally by the community and monitored through direct client feedback to ensure their quality. Collaboration is an essential ingredient. The AlphaZetta community shares best practice methodologies and experience and has access to the latest IP, technologies, HW/SW, tools and apps, just like a large consultancy or vendor.

When you hire an AlphaZetta expert, they come with all the benefits, care and flexibility of an independent  but they have the whole AlphaZetta community and resources to support them in delivering your project. So you get all the benefits of a big firm supporting you, just without the high costs and overheads!

5 – Break free with lower costs and transparent fees2016-12-26T08:32:23+00:00

AlphaZetta lets you book direct with the Analytic Experts and save.

Traditional big consulting firms typically mark up their resources by 250% to 300%. For junior resources and offshore resources, it can be significantly higher. We believe its too high.

There are many reasons why the big firms mark up their costs so high, from their expensive office buildings, to layers of back office management and, of course, the highly paid Partners that seem to vanish once the real project work starts. All of these costs must be covered by you as the client, and so the big firms add them into the overheads on your project costs. For many of us who have been clients, it’s a frustrating scenario.

Now you can break free.

AlphaZetta only charges one simple and transparent 20% booking fee.

And you get the actual expert of your choice, no more sending in the juniors!

Like Uber but for Analytic Consultants or perhaps ‘Open Source Consulting’, AlphaZetta does away with all the unnecessary overheads and management layers – we just match you with the best available analytic talent there is. From that point it is between you and the individual.

The savings can be significant. And because you are hiring independent consultants, they often care much more about their reputation and follow on work and a lot less about charging endless change requests.

6 – How do we ensure quality in the AlphaZetta community?2016-12-26T08:33:18+00:00

The experts at AlphaZetta are carefully screened and vetted before they can join the community and they are reviewed again after every engagement. AlphaZetta is not an open database of contractors, each individual is fully reviewed and peer referenced.

We ensure the community has the right mix of Expert Members and that each Expert Member delivers to the standard the community expects. We actively use peer to peer reviews to ensure we keep the integrity of the community. AlphaZetta is organized into small communities, each one with a Managing Partner who knows their community members personally.

On joining AlphaZetta every Expert Member, must go through an acceptance review with a Managing Partner. They ensure that new members accurately reflect their skills in their profile, companies reflect their capabilities and can deliver what they profess. In this way, every member personally knows and has met other members. It’s the first layer of ensuring quality.

For every engagement, we take two-way feedback, a bit like Uber. We get feedback from both the Client and the Expert Member. Unlike Uber we don’t openly publish this to the wider community and clients. Sometimes there can be very specific circumstances on projects which effect this feedback and consulting has significantly lower volumes than taxi rides, so one off feedback can adversely impact someone. Where the feedback warrants it, we delist members from the community.

Should your engagement with an AlphaZetta consultant not meet expectations for any reason, we will work with you to find a suitable replacement.

Whilst AlphaZetta interviews all Expert Members before joining, we do not undertake full security screening checks of a kind that may be required for some Government and Financial Services organizations. If your project requires this screening, we will work with to help your chosen consultant comply.

Please note that AlphaZetta provides introductions and referrals only.

The delivery of any contract is the sole responsibility of the Expert Member and The Client Member. Client Members must do due diligence to ensure that any individual or company they contract following an introduction through AlphaZetta have accurately represented their capabilities and are appropriate for the work envisioned and the rates that are agreed.

9 – No lock in policy & you may even hire our experts full time2016-12-26T08:36:48+00:00

AlphaZetta maintains an open ‘no lock in’ policy, which means that AlphaZetta Clients are free to use alternate sources of resourcing for their projects and may discontinue use of the AlphaZetta service at any time that suits them.

In addition, AlphaZetta makes it easy for Clients to hire our Members full time if the need arises. We believe anti poaching clauses restrict the freedom of both our Client Members and Expert Members. At any point in time should you wish to convert an AlphaZetta contractor to a full-time employee, AlphaZetta must be notified in writing, and there is a fee charged to release the Expert Member.

If you do discontinue your relationship with AlphaZetta there are no penalties or costs. However, for 12 months after your login and membership has been withdrawn or following the last day of AlphaZetta contracting work, you can not hire directly (outside of AlphaZetta) any AlphaZetta Members we have introduced to you.
