Embedded networks - winners or sinners?

Unfortunately, it's true.  The embedded network sector has earned itself a 'less-than-squeaky' reputation. Developers have traditionally awarded embedded network contracts based on who offers the biggest capital contribution - creating poor customer outcomes & bad press. But the good news is - as a developer - you have the power to set-up the embedded network on your terms. And if you do it right, you’ll create winning outcomes for both you and your customers.

So, how do I set-up an embedded network the 'right way' for my development? 

The definition of the 'right way' varies for each development, based on your site, your business and your customers' needs. There are many considerations - for example: the ownership structure, the mix of technologies, funding, contract terms, customer experience & protections, and sustainability.  

In all cases, it's key that you take a more proactive approach - carefully crafting an embedded network to align with the unique drivers of your development. As embedded network consultants, this is where we can help you.
