Key Points in Negotiating SaaS Vendor Agreements
Negotiating a SaaS (Software as a Service) vendor agreement can be a complex and daunting task, but it's important to get it right to ensure a fair deal for both parties. Here are some tips for customers to negotiate a SaaS vendor agreement:
Understand Your Needs: Before entering into any negotiation, it's crucial to have a clear understanding of your organization's needs, goals, and priorities. Identify the features, functionality, and services that you require from the SaaS vendor, and make sure they are included in the agreement.
Know the Market: Research the market and compare multiple vendors to get a better understanding of what's available and what the competition is offering. Use this knowledge to your advantage during the negotiation process.
Review the Agreement: Carefully review the vendor's standard agreement before entering into negotiations. Make note of any clauses or terms that you find unacceptable or unclear, and be prepared to discuss them with the vendor.
Negotiate the Price: SaaS vendors often offer tiered pricing structures, so negotiate the price based on the features and functionality that you require. Be sure to also consider factors such as contract length and payment terms.
Negotiate Service Level Agreements: Service level agreements (SLAs) specify the level of service that the vendor will provide, such as uptime guarantees, support response times, and data backups. Negotiate SLAs that meet your organization's needs and include penalties for non-compliance.
Protect Your Data: Ensure that the agreement includes provisions for data security, confidentiality, and ownership. Make sure the vendor meets your organization's security and compliance requirements.
Seek Legal Advice: Consider consulting with legal counsel to review the agreement before signing it. Legal advice can help you identify potential pitfalls and negotiate more favorable terms.
In summary, negotiating a SaaS vendor agreement requires preparation, research, and a clear understanding of your organization's needs. By following these tips, you can negotiate a fair and advantageous agreement with your SaaS vendor.
Amazon AWS SaaS Reseller Contracts and Agreements
Andrew also provides legal advice for reviewing, drafting and negotiating Amazon AWS SaaS reseller agreements, contracts and templates.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a cloud computing platform that provides a wide range of services to customers worldwide. One of the ways AWS reaches customers is through Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) reseller agreements.
SaaS reseller agreements are contracts between AWS and a third-party vendor who is authorized to resell AWS services to their customers. These agreements typically outline the terms and conditions of the relationship between AWS and the reseller, including the rights and responsibilities of each party.
Here are some key elements that may be included in an AWS SaaS reseller agreement:
Service offering: The agreement will specify the AWS services that the reseller is authorized to offer to their customers. The reseller will typically be authorized to resell a subset of AWS services and will need to adhere to specific guidelines and requirements for offering these services.
Pricing and billing: The agreement will outline the pricing and billing terms for the AWS services that the reseller is authorized to offer. The reseller will typically purchase AWS services at a discounted rate and then resell them to their customers at a markup.
Support and maintenance: The agreement will specify the level of support and maintenance that AWS will provide to the reseller and their customers. This may include access to technical support, documentation, and training resources.
Marketing and promotion: The agreement may include provisions related to marketing and promotion of the AWS services offered by the reseller. This may include guidelines for the use of AWS branding and logos, as well as requirements for promotional materials and activities.
Intellectual property: The agreement may include provisions related to intellectual property rights, including ownership and use of trademarks, copyrights, and other proprietary information.
Termination: The agreement will specify the conditions under which the agreement may be terminated by either party, including the process for giving notice and any associated fees or penalties.
Overall, an AWS SaaS reseller agreement is a legal contract that establishes a relationship between AWS and a third-party vendor who is authorized to resell AWS services to their customers. These agreements are designed to protect the interests of both parties and ensure that the reseller is able to effectively and efficiently offer AWS services to their customers.

The use of Software as a Service (SaaS) applications has accelerated greatly over the last decade. SaaS is a delivery and subscription model in which web based software is accessed online. The SaaS vendor hosts and maintains the software usually via a third party provider, instead of the more traditional model where the customer buys the software and installs it on their own computer.
