Technology Contract Review

Get an independent review of your system software contract

Are you about to purchase system software with implementation services? If so, chances are the contract will contain a lot of technical jargon and industry norms, making it challenging to understand. It can then be easy to overlook crucial elements and run into problems due to unfavourable provisions.

The technology contract review service is designed to help you:

  • Get expert, impartial advice on over 50 key contract areas
  • Identify clauses that could generate unexpected fees or limit your usage rights
  • Determine whether any key contractual areas are missing
  • Obtain the information you need to assess and negotiate any clauses of concern
  • Reduce your risk and maximize your ROI

In the end, we wanted an ERP system at the right price and to ensure that it totally worked for our business. I would strongly recommend this service to any entrepreneur!
