ERP Contracts – Achieve Critical Terms
Most ERP access contracts provided by sellers are simply awful. Awful for buyers, but quite stellar for sellers. However, buyers have options to achieve a balanced status in such contracts and the resultant commercial relationship. The information our ERP Contracts white paper shows how. The advice in this document is a result of years of arranging balanced terms for those wanting to access ERP, both in a subscription model or purchased perpetual ERP licenses.
Includes guidance on:
- ERP cloud cost and key terms to achieve

- Key tactics for negotiating ERP contracts
- How ERP contract terms affect ERP system cost
Long term ERP license costs were initially very difficult to calculate. Working with SoftSelect we were able to insist on a predicable ERP license fee approach and achieve much lower initial and ongoing license fee costs.
SoftSelect was a great partner throughout the process of choosing an ERP solution. They helped us control the terms throughout the ERP buying process, and we achieved impressive results in reduced ERP license fees. Having an experienced partner like SoftSelect, helped us negotiate for the products we need and set our expectations for the process of implementing these solutions.
Negotiating ERP costs is complicated and the ERP software vendors take advantage of the buyer’s lack of experience. SoftSelect’s experience and influence helped us level the playing field. We clearly saved money and lowered our long term risk.
