  • “Getting a deal with SAP where you believe that you’ve maximised the value of the deal is never an easy task. There’s a lot of moving parts, and you don’t always realise the implications of what you are agreeing until it’s too late (and after the deal is done). When Blackstone introduced NET(net) to me, and they took a look at our situation and came up with options in the SAP license arena where by we could generate significant value… well I was skeptical. Could they really deliver on what they said they could? Not only did we deliver enough value in the short term to justify the change we made, but we got a lot of future proofing in the deal so that there’s potential for further value to be added over the longer run. And that’s easy to forget, but with NET(net) you get everything on the table and tackle it when it’s there to be done. I would encourage anyone that’s got a big deal coming down the pipe, or who’s looking to revamp the status quo… to speak with NET(net) and get them in play. There’s nothing to lose and you just might be surprised with what there is to gain.

  • “We recently engaged NET(net) to advise us regarding a complicated renegotiation with one of our key strategic suppliers. The NET(net) team was able to help us analyze, assess, and validate our current environment and convert that into strategy to guide negotiations.  There were several layers of complexity around getting this done such as the number of parties associated with negotiations.  Working together, we were able to arrive at an agreement that ensures we are ‘right sized’ for the future.  We would consider engaging NET(net) again for assistance and advice with our strategic technology partners should the need arise.”

     

    – Jason Richards, VP of IT, Sophos Limited

  • “Virgin Care engaged NET(net) to review and assist us by leading the negotiations with one of our most strategic suppliers, constituting a projected five year spend of well over £7m.  The NET(net) subject matter experts were able to dive in and find inconsistencies in the proposed terms, pricing and project plan that enabled us to drive considerably more business value and savings than had previously been identified.  The results were impressive starting with a bottom line savings of over £1m over five years.  Equally as impressive was the speed at which we were able to reach an agreed result.  Additional services added around Time and Labour, Planning and Budgeting, and additional test environments added significantly to our bottom line results in the engagement.  To cap off these benefits, we were also able to mitigate our long term risk with improved pricing for future units which yields additional savings over the long term.  In summary we were more than pleased with not only the results, but the professionalism and expertise of the NET(net) staff who was able to dissect a complex agreement, and remake it into an effective partnership model that will drive value for us over the next several years.”

    Chief Technology and Transformation Officer, Virgin Care Limited

  • “The relationship that NET(net) has with one of our private equity investors gave us the confidence to challenge an Enterprise Software Provider. We executed a detailed analysis and structured optimization of what and how licenses should (and should not) be transferred from our former parent and the justified case for what needed to be acquired rather than taking the process recommended by the supplier. NET(net) was invaluable in “removing the mystery” related to the solution configuration,  license options, and deal valuation. At many turns, their knowledge changed the HBC strategy, drove more precise and cost effective answers out of the provider’s sales team, all of which resulted in a very significant savings over what we would have otherwise executed.”

  • “Motel 6 was in the middle of a carve-out of an independent business from our prior European parent. In the process of setting up our separate operations, we were in negotiations with a major IT supplier with a very limited amount of time and many business and technical complexities. In particular, working the IT Supplier organization across borders and in a leveraged position was very difficult. With about one month until the new organization needed to be in place, we still did not have an acceptable financial offer from IT Supplier, and we had concerns about the configuration of the offer. The assistance of NET(net) was invaluable and they were highly responsive in a very busy period for the business. In 10 days, and as a team, we delivered a final negotiated deal with a configuration that maximized the flexibility for Motel 6 going forward, corrected several problematic issues in the agreement, achieved over $1.3M in additional savings, and configured the solution to avoid over $700K of future capital spending. It was a great partnership. ”

We initiated discussions with our software suppliers on our own, but during the course of negotiations, it became clear that we would benefit from professional assistance. Our private equity owner, Blackstone, introduced us to NET(net). The results of the negotiation were millions of dollars worth of savings and benefits.

  • “Most companies, either through ignorance or ego, remain stuck in struggle, refusing to admit they don’t have the knowledge or expertise to craft the appropriate relationship with their suppliers. Like an addict, they keep making the same mistakes over and over again and everyone around them is forced to live with the consequences. The best way, sometimes the only way, to break out of this vicious cycle is to get help from a qualified professional. In essence, that is exactly what we did at HB Fuller. NET(net) helped us to clarify, standardize, and optimize our technology investments.

NET(net) was able to detect the over-charge condition, quantify it, and negotiated Money Back from our supplier without damaging the relationship. Prior to engaging NET(net) we had an excellent relationship with our software supplier, however as we engaged NET(net) we found that there was room for both strategic and economic improvements.

  • “Summit Materials was in a unique position from an IT perspective.  As a company that had grown rapidly through acquisition we had a number of well-established regional IT operations. However, we had no central hub through which all of those regions could connect and share information.  As a construction materials company, IT is not our core competency, and we had little interest in standing up our own corporate data center.  We retained NET(net) to help us explore the options for outsourcing our central IT functions, while maintaining the bulk of the autonomy of our local IT functions.  Working with NET(net) we first quantified a make versus buy analysis.  Once the cost savings from outsourcing were clear, we prepared a Request for Proposal and NET(net) helped us identify several vendors that could address our unique requirements.  NET(net) worked alongside us throughout the vetting, vendor selection, and contract negotiation processes.  Their input was enormously helpful as they were able to bring the selected vendor and proposed contract more in line with current market best practices.  The NET(net) team was terrific to work with, and we certainly plan to do so again.”
