Imagine a painless contract renewal process for enterprise vendors

We know just how long and complex vendor negotiations can be. Unforeseen renewal costs and unfit, misaligned contracts can muddy a process that’s meant to optimize your software and cloud investments.

So we know what you need to take back control. Trustworthy utilization data combined with projected future demand and proven vendor expertise means we’ll help you land the best possible deal, every single time.

See the bigger picture so you’ll never overspend

Future-proofing your business means managing and optimizing your software investments for the long haul. We’ll work with you to develop a detailed Bill of Materials that charts your consumption and forecasts future demand, so you can enter into contract negotiations knowing exactly what you need, when you need it.

Support at every step toward the best possible deal

We know a thing or two about vendor negotiations. Whether that’s for Tier One, Tier Two vendors or more, our experts have negotiated some of the largest, most complex mega vendor contracts for businesses spanning the private and public sectors. But don’t just take our word for it: count on us for help with vendor proposals, Best and Final Offer (BAFO) reviews, commercial benchmarks, and negotiation strategies. We’ll steer you toward a deal worth shouting about.

We couldn't be happier with the amount of cost avoidance achieved. So much so, we'd advocate that other forces who are facing the same challenges as we were, also go through this optimization process, and have passed on Livingstone as a strong recommendation.
