  • After analyzing the 3 offers received, we created a rating related to financial aspects, with a choice recommendation which was integrated into the selection process, in addition to the functional and qualitative aspects.
  • We also presented targets for improved conditions with the arguments and the appropriate negotiation tactics. The client obtained the target conditions on strategic and priority issues by making measured concessions on the points which were not seen as priorities.
  • We provided a full checklist of contractual clauses to be negotiated for purchasing a license as well as for the service provision/integration. This checklist was used by procurement and legal in the group to carry out negotiations.
