How we do it

Vetting

Find Value by vetting potential opportunities for value improvements by socially vetting suppliers in your technology supply chain with a strong peer network

Analysis

Find Value by analysis of your current supplier spend and identification of key opportunities to improve economic and/or strategic value

Selection

Find Value by utilizing a proven and disciplined supplier evaluation and selection process that reduces subjectivity and risk, and improves performance and value

Relationship

We review and analyze select supplier relationships, and oversee and remedy any critical issues that come up, maintaining custom supplier management plans, non-standard escalation paths, and executive level relationships.

Investment

We monitor and govern select supplier investments, and proactively and strategically manage financial performance, reconciling any discrepancies, and remediating any errors.

Negotiation

We’ll leverage our patented negotiation methodologies, and provide decision support and/or “at the bargaining table” supplier negotiations assistance to ensure you get the protections and flexibility you need to capture maximum value in your commercial arrangement.

Agreement

We review and analyze select supplier agreements, and input contract meta data into our contract management tool, identifying key date-related provisions, setting meaningful alerts and notifying you proactively when action is required.

Optimization

We’ll leverage our proprietary tools to analyze your organizational requirements, and evaluate all the available supplier options, and will bring to life alternative deal permutations that meet your needs, but offer better economic and/or strategic value from the supplier solution.

Federation

We’ll leverage our federated market intelligence to benchmark your agreements, investments, and relationships, and perform a gap analysis between the economic and strategic value of your deals versus market optimized conditions to highlight your opportunities for improvement.

Your Suppliers

In your technology supply chain, suppliers will have their own goals and ambitions and will have incentives to promote their innovations, highlight their capabilities, sell their wares and position their ecosystem partners.

The Market

In the market you’ll find general opportunities to lower costs and automate your business to capitalize on first-mover market advantages to find solutions for special projects or specific markets, industries and geographies and you’ll be subject to certain limitations and regulatory markets.

Bearable

Those things that are good between your supplier and the market although they might be bearable, they’re not sustainable if they’re not also good for your company.

Your Company

In your company, you’ll have needs, ambitions, organizational objectives, priorities, budgets, capabilities, infrastructure and demographics that are all unique to you.

Equitable

Those things that are good between your company and your suppliers, although they may be equitable, they’re not sustainable if they’re not also good for the market.

Viable

Those things that are good between the market and your company, although they may be viable, they’re not sustainable if they’re not also good for your suppliers.

Why our Services Matter

IT Buyers pay a 40% Premium for the Technology that runs their organizations. Why?

Lack of Real Time Global Market Data and Pricing

Most Benchmarking and Market Data Reporting is based on 'anonymous surveys' and backward looking purchasing.  NET(net) uses its propritary Federated Market Intelligence (FMI) created from 15 years and 25k field engagements - many happening today.

No Technology Specific Supplier Methodology

There are specific technology Negotiation and Supplier Management strategies that NET(net) has developed and perfected over 15 years.  Most organizations don't have the benefit of this specific skillset.  

Little Industry Specific Expertise

We average 25 years experience in every major market category.  In other words, we know technology suppliers better than they know themselves.

The NET(net) Difference

Federated Market
Intelligence

NET(net) has developed a proprietary database that contains 15 years worth of deals, pricing, and negotiated terms. We optimize thousands of deals every year across all technology categories - so we know how to fully optimize terms and pricing for any agreement.

Proven Best Practices for Supplier
Lifecycle Cost & Value Optimization

Most IT organizations don’t negotiate major technology agreements every day. A company might negotiate one of their top 10 agreements every few years - we do it every single day with the largest technology suppliers in the world.

Skilled Experts with a blended specialization of IT and Commercial Negotiations expertise
We have subject matter expertise with the requisite experience to cost optimize complex operating
environments. In most cases, our SME's know the supplier's business, better than the supplier knows themselves, with each averaging over 25 years of experience.
