ConTract

Managing license agreements and IT service contracts is a complex task.

Vendor management

We support companies in license negotiations with software vendors and service providers, administrate and monitor agreements, and analyze them with the goal of sustainable optimization.

Reporting

Reporting

Most license agreements contain provisions requiring records to be kept about the software in use or requiring the company to notify the vendor of its license needs at scheduled times. Of course, each software vendor defines its own rules regarding reporting processes, deadlines or templates. We support you in generating the required documents and assist you efficiently and professionally in information exchanges with software vendors.

Contract negotiations

Contract negotiations

Getting the best result in contract negotiations with software vendors or service providers requires two key ingredients: good preparation and lots of experience. Even though negotiations rarely go to extremes, your contract partners do aim to get the best deal they can. You should do the same! We support you in preparing for negotiations, work out the best outcome options and give you the tools you need to lead discussions in a focused way. If necessary, we'll take an active part in the negotiations or negotiate on your behalf.

Contract management

Contract management

After an agreement has been concluded, it has to be documented and filed in an easy-to-access manner.  The agreement is the basis for settling business transactions and usually has a fixed term. Contract implementation has to be managed and contractually defined deadlines met. Among others, the following questions become relevant: How can maximum benefit be derived from the agreement? What scope is there? What do you have to watch out for when the contract nears expiry? We work out the answers to these and other questions with you in a requirements workshop or check details ranging from whether an agreement is up to date to whether existing contract management should be centralized.
