Our mission is to empower service providers with innovative technology solutions that drive growth, improve efficiency, and enhance the customer experience.
Our goal is to be the trusted advisor for service providers, delivering practical and actionable advice to help them navigate the rapidly evolving technology landscape and succeed in an increasingly competitive market
Finding the perfect IT services that align with your business is hard. You must spend a lot of time reviewing contracts, attending large meetings, discussing terms and conditions, and so much more.
The good news is that you don't have to.
Every business is different. That's why we take the time to thoroughly understand your business requirements and expectations and help you design solutions and contract terms to suit your present and future needs. Our primary responsibility is to support, inform, and be an advocate for you.
We maintain an industry-wide view so we can counsel our clients on market trends, price changes, unique solutions, and insider "tricks of the trade." Because we do the research, you can remain visible or invisible to service providers—it's whatever you decide.
We don't receive base salaries or an upfront commission from providers, and we are non-exclusive to a specific platform or provider. We earn a small residual payment from the vendors for the life of your service.
Industry changes are driving service providers to rethink their platform strategies. What does the future look like? How do I protect myself? Let us help.
Perpetual, subscription, cloud, and wholesale options all create unique challenges. And opportunities.
Get some impartial advice from a team that has your best interest. Let us help prepare for your business's next step!
Talk with a team that helped build and execute the strategy. We are an unbiased team that has no sales quota, or alternative motivation other than to help YOU find your best path forward.
Because you can't afford not to. We negotiate IT service contracts on a daily basis and save our clients millions. We can do the same for you.
In today's IT services market, change occurs at a blistering pace. Keeping up with the vast array of providers, contract best practices, and benchmark pricing is complicated. Even companies with large IT departments and experienced in-house purchasing groups look to Independent Networks to support them with the best provider and service options.
There are several reasons why almost all service providers enjoy working with Independent Networks and other agencies:
All contracts for services are signed directly between the client and the service provider. However, we assist our clients in identifying terms, conditions and pricing most favorable to them in these agreements. Clients sign a one page, Independent Networks Agent of Record (AOR) and a Letter of Authorization (LOA) permitting us to work on your behalf.
It’s unfortunate, but different customers pay significantly different prices for the exact same services even from the same service provider. Similar to the airline industry, service providers will charge whatever they feel they can get away with. Only by working within the industry you can learn to traverse the pricing game.
Yes. Many of our clients say that our experience with redlining the legal T&C’s is our most useful service. Unfortunately, many service providers hide undesirable language in their contracts.
We can help you negotiate better language including: business downturn clauses, limited liability for early termination, mutual indemnification, 6 month “fresh look” clauses and much more. Our goal is to help our clients find not only the best pricing, but also the best terms and conditions, which will give you the flexibility and security you need to run your business.
Clients have so much to focus on and so many constraints. Sometimes clients just want to talk to other clients that are facing similar problems. Everyone has struggles. Learning how similar companies addressed the same issues can save months of effort. We find that our clients truly appreciate client Peer-to-Peer discussions we arrange. We have a very impressive client list. If you want to jump on the phone or have coffee with one of your peers - we can set that up.
