A Better Deal Is Better

October 10 at 5:30 pm 8:00 pm

400 Technology Ct SE, Suite R
Smyrna, Georgia 30082 United States

How do you measure the value of your deals? Spend? Cost Savings? Too often, the contractual side of partnerships are ignored.

  • For buyers, poorly defined and unmanaged contracts prevent businesses from translating acontract into a tool for capturing benefits.
  • For suppliers, poorly defined scopes lead to hefty losses and costs businesses revenue,relationships and careers.

Extracting value is a matter of Dollars and SENSE. Contracts must be designed to perform and create mutual value for the buyer and the supplier. One cannot win if the other is losing.

Join ASCM Atlanta to discuss why your business may need to (re)think the deal.
