How To Prepare To Do a Technology Deal With An Enterprise Customer
Companies engaging in tech, software or SaaS deals with enterprise customers for the first time better get plenty of sleep and rest before they start negotiating the Agreement. With plenty of money to spend on in-house lawyers who know every issue and are use to getting things their way a smaller technology or software vendor often looks and feels like a deer in the headlights.
For more small technology companies there is not too much resistance in contracts negotiations from other smaller companies who subscribe to or license their products. Non-enterprise customers simply don’t have the funds to hire a lawyer to spend hours eyeballing the vendor’s agreement. More often than not, in this type of negotiation there are no lawyers involved in the deal.
For smaller companies dealing for the first time with an enterprise customer you need to be prepared for major contracts negotiations by the customer. Especially the language dealing with limitations of liability and warranties which the enterprise customer will completely re-write so the vendor assumes much more liability and offers more in the way of liability.
So what can a technology or software company do to prepare to negotiate an agreement with an enterprise customer? For starters, you need to purchase a sufficient amount of general liability and errors and omissions insurance. You will not sign any contracts with any enterprise customers without getting a decent amount of commercial insurance. Enterprise companies want to know that in the event of a data breach or cyber attack that a vendor has a sufficient amount of insurance to cover any losses or damages.
Next, you need to get your security measures and protocols in place to protect customer data and sensitive information. There is so much information on the web about this issue plus you can hire a company that specializes in performing security assessments or that certifies tech and software companies that their security measures are acceptable or up to industry standards.
You will also need to be prepared to accept liability if you outsource hosting and serving of your product to a third party cloud managed services provider. Enterprise companies don’t care that your cloud provider is one of the largest companies in the world. If something goes wrong with the service and the customer’s data is compromised or destroyed they can’t sue your cloud provider so they are going to look to your company to assume such liability.
You also need to know that if you are offering a SaaS application that the enterprise customer might want you to do some customized work to your software so that it integrates better with the customer’s platform or brands. This raises the issues of cost and timing. Is the customer going to pay for all of this customized work? And, will this delay the launch of the customer using your software live?
