Experience Is Key

While managing IT contracts may seem like a blocking and tackling exercise, getting the most favorable terms can have a significant impact on the scalability and ROI of a company’s infrastructure. In order to make wise IT investments that address the needs of today and the future, knowing the best practices of contract negotiations is essential.

Procurement, and contract negotiations in particular,  is a nuanced exercise and one that involves continual learning. As such, the more experience and exposure a company has to contracts, whether basic terms and conditions or more sweeping master services agreements, the better equipped that company is to establish optimal contract structures. It’s precisely that lack of specific contract experience that often leads enterprises to work with experienced industry advisors to craft the right terms for their infrastructure at the right price.
