Contracting and Negotiation services by Corcentric

Corcentric’s team of contracting and negotiation experts will work to assure your contract negotiations satisfy both you and your supplier. It’s not a win for us unless it’s a win-win for you.

A great price doesn’t always lead to top quality services, and top quality services certainly don’t have to come at a high price. Our strategic sourcing and contract negotiation experts can help you navigate the challenges of contracting and negotiations to not only assess the proposed terms and conditions but provide comparisons to others in the market to create a satisfactory agreement for both parties. Decades of experience has taught us how to navigate the fine line between good contracts and great contracts. Corcentric can assist you in your contract writing and negotiations, whether part of a full strategic sourcing initiative, or as a one-off single engagement.

Our Contracting and Negotiation services include:

Our involvement doesn’t end when you sign the dotted line. As part of our general contract negotiation process, Corcentric will provide ongoing contract monitoring and contract management services to ensure you and your suppliers stay compliant.

Fact-based negotiation services

Smart contract negotiations are methodical and backed by data. When it comes to lowering costs, driving business, and developing category management strategies, companies need an effective market research team to navigate the supply chain landscape and present the facts. Corcentric has the market intelligence necessary to make smart supply chain negotiations possible. Our years of implementing strategic sourcing best practices for top firms, coupled with our proprietary contract database and team of market research experts, provides our clients real-time insight into the competition, supply trends, contract terms, price points, and the supplier community. We’ll remove the guesswork from your next procurement investment to help your company remain competitive and negotiate cost savings.

Contract Management services and solutions

Poor contract management can result in maverick buying and lead your company to miss renewals or accept them at non-competitive rates. Corcentric’s contract management specialists are prepared to help you focus negotiation efforts and – if necessary – seek out alternative vendors. We’ll help you implement your own contract management systems and provide you with access to our free e-Sourcing and Contract Management service: WhyAbe. The combined efforts of our team and the site’s intuitive contract management features will help you automate renewals, organize crucial information, and ensure the best possible contract for your company and its suppliers. With Corcentric and our sourcing tools, you’ll never miss a renewal date or a commitment level again.

Market intelligence

A lack of relevant data often leads procurement groups to ‘go with their gut,’ or maintain inefficient supplier relationships ‘just because.’ Corcentric’s 25 years of experience have helped us build an unparalleled database of best practices and real-time insights. This means we’re uniquely equipped to advise you during contract negotiations and every other step of the sourcing process.
