This model reduces the cost of maintaining and delivering services to the clients, which reduces each client’s operating costs.||By aggregating multiple clients together and servicing from one location, economies of scale and service are achieved, thereby reducing the cost of maintaining and delivering human resource and personnel management services to clients, which in turn reduces each client's operating costs.|
