Since 1999 Frank is active in the field of pricing, valuing and estimating of IT projects and services. Frank is currently advising the top 500 companies in Europe to help them to get a grip on the costs of their IT and to provide them with an understanding of the costs of their IT components compared to the industry. Performing IT benchmarks at External and Internal IT Service Providers and Internal Service Providers. Scope of the benchmark advice concerns both the infrastructure and application domain. This also includes fact-based advising for sourcing deals and regular price-alignment contract benchmarks. Creating market price models and market updates for global External Service Providers to assist them in aligning their offerings to the market. Pricing support in tenders for both the client side as well as External Service Providers (but not in the same deal). Frank's personal objective is the creation of insight. Insight is the starting point of making informed decisions, whether it is on pricing, estimating or managing IT projects and services. Decisions based on insight are better defendable, less questionable and lead to better results.

Frank is President of the Board and member of the Measurement Practices Committee of COSMIC and a member of the Counting Practices Committee of Nesma. Frank was Program Chair of the International Workshop on Software Measurement that was held in Rotterdam in 2014. Frank is Senior Consultant IT Benchmarking at METRI and a regular speaker on international conferences on the pricing, valuing and estimating of IT projects and services.
