As an Advantage member, we will empower to grow your business by leveraging our proprietary teaming and brokering solutions.

Operate a Scalable Team

Going independent doesn’t mean “going it alone.” Independents can become more successful and scale their businesses by working with other independents. Obtain the reach and capacity of a traditional company without the rigidity and overhead of dedicated staff.

MBO offers several tools to enable independents to work together:

  • Templated work arrangements and contracts for several collaboration models make negotiation and set-up easier between independents. There’s no need to figure things out “from scratch.”
  • MBO automates payment calculations and cash distribution through the entire billing lifecycle. Nobody has to calculate percentages or wait for another to write a check, and there is an end-to-end record for transparency.
  • Every teaming opportunity is different; we’ve seen them all. Our experts will help you evaluate the best collaboration option for each new project.


Brokering: generate demand for other independents. You receive a commission from others in exchange for helping them get new clients and projects. The independents bill their clients, and your commission is automatically deducted from their payments.

Partnership: team up with other independents to execute larger, more complicated projects like a virtual consulting firm. The client receives consolidated billing and makes a single payment. MBO divides the funds according to percentages set in your partnership agreement and pays you and your partners accordingly.

Supporting Resources: bring on contractors to help deliver large projects where you are the lead. You bill your client and receive the payment. The contractors bill you for their work, you approve the bills, and MBO automatically pays them from your receivables when your client pays you.
