Our revenue model involves receiving an ongoing payment from the vendor that is selected, for the duration of the contract. The exact payment amount can vary depending on the specifics of each individual contract.
To provide funding for our users, we collect and redistribute commissions from within the UK channel market. These available commissions are used to provide a transformation grant that can be utilised in a variety of ways to suit the needs of the user’s business, such as deployment or contract fees, new hardware, other projects, or even as a charitable donation.
The UK channel model is structured to ensure pricing parity across the board. Therefore, pricing for products and services remains consistent, regardless of whether you use UCAdvisor or not. This means that you can still directly negotiate with your chosen vendor for all costs, without incurring any additional charges from UCAdvisor.
Exact funding amounts vary from project to project; however we have a number of funding calculators on our site that will be able to give you approximate amounts based on the various criteria. We will confirm final and exact funding amounts prior to any signature with your chosen vendors.
The transformation grant that UCAdvisor provides can be used for a wide range of purposes. Some of the most common uses include reducing upfront costs, refreshing hardware, covering early exit fees, financing other internal projects, and even donating the funds to a charitable cause. Ultimately, it’s up to each client to determine how they would like to allocate the grant, based on their unique business needs and goals.
We sometimes request a joint case study once the project has been successfully signed off; however this isn’t mandatory.

When you work with us, we’ll ask you to nominate a bank account for us to transfer the funds to.

Funding is usually provided within a timeframe of 90 to 120 days from the awarding of the contract. However, the exact timing will be communicated to you in advance, before you sign the contract with your chosen vendors.
At UCAdvisor, we have a wide range of experience funding various digital change projects.
