Emerset has developed a proprietary methodology for optimizing your software licensing agreement negotiations with all major software vendors, the Clear Licensing Methodology™, which includes the four phases detailed below. To thoroughly implement this comprehensive process, we recommend beginning 6 to 9 months before your licensing agreement’s renewal date so you can optimize your EA negotiations.

Using our vast knowledge of the inner workings with all major software vendors, we can demystify the complexity of licensing terms and options. Emerset’s Clear Licensing Methodology™ is the process we use to work with your corporate negotiation team before, during and after the negotiation process. Our methodology defines the goals, determines the strategy and planning, and prepares you and your team for the complex and lengthy negotiation process.
