CNC’s Contingency-Based pricing model for all Optimization services is completely risk free and comes with this guarantee: You get a 400% return-on-investment or you pay us nothing. Prior to beginning negotiations, a baseline is agreed upon by both parties from which “savings” will be calculated. If we fail to obtain a price lower than the baseline, there is no charge for the negotiations, and you will have received a complete review of your past purchases, licensing, and terms and conditions (likely with improvements). We also offer fixed fee and special arrangements when it is difficult to establish a baseline.
All of our negotiations include our Optimization service that covers five areas:
1. Past Purchases
3. Present and Future Prices
4. Terms and Conditions
5. Vendor partnerships.
Pre-Optimization services are delivered at competitive hourly rates or a fixed fee.
Technology Roadmapping and Business Standardization services are provided for a fixed fee.
On-Demand Market Intelligence service fee is simply 2% of the contract spend.
Example 1: Annual renewal of a support agreement of $200,000; OMI fee = $4,000.
Example 2: Multi-year agreement with total payments of $1,000,000; OMI fee = $20,000.
