An awesome MSA (Master service agreement) and a cover letter can incredibly speed up the closing of a deal with a client.
At the same time, a template from the Internet with errors and wrong numbering without any explanations and elaborations for specific business processes increases the chances of closing the deal for your competitor.

What contracts do we prepare?
Software development agreement (IT outsourcing agreement)
It can be an agreement for the development of a website/mobile or web application. There may be a fixed price, when the parties have a statement of work, agree on milestones and their cost. Flexible terms and conditions of time & material contract are also possible. Such contracts can be both between Ukrainian residents or have a foreign element.
Master services agreement (MSA)
Oddly enough, this is also a software development agreement, but it is also a “master” contract. It can include the development and design services, and many other things. Three appendices are often made to such an agreement: time & material, dedicated team, and fixed price, and an addendum for a specific format is signed with the client.
And it’s also a software development contract. One of its formats can also be called a dedicated team contract. The point is that the developer company is not responsible for the developed software, but for having a team that is ready to complete tasks for the client. The copyright is transferred to the customer, the customer can approve the team, and the contractor can have managers distribute the work.
Agreements with team - developers, designers, managers
For example, a company in Poland engages Ukrainian private entrepreneurs – developers, designers, project managers, several HR and sales managers. Each of these specialists needs a contract. It is necessary to transfer intellectual property, to agree on the details of providing services for performing the agreement. And what about confidentiality and non-competition?
Non-disclosure agreement - NDA
All members of the team need NDAs. We should determine what is confidential information, how it is transferred, what is NDA violations and sanctions.
Non-compete agreement - NCA
You cannot prohibit a developer from writing code forever, but specific custom restrictions, which are based on logic and judicial practice, do work.
Marketing services agreement (digital SSM, SEO, ASO, referral, partnership, etc.)
The format of remuneration for marketing services can be different: percentage for a lead, payments for impressions, as well as a link to organic traffic. This includes promotion through social networks and the development of brand strategies. Also, there is traffic arbitration with its own DSP and SSP. You can custom everything!
SLA (Service level agreement)
This type of agreement is typical for services that provide IT support. There should be indicated the speed of response to server crashes and common bugs, as well as the conditions of the support.
There are countless licenses in IT – from licenses for photos on photo stocks to white-label solutions of specific software for large IT products.
Finding new people for the IT team is a big deal. Recruitment bonus programs for new developers may vary. Also, there are so called “black lists”. These are the candidates with whom negotiations have already started and for whom the recruiting company will not receive a bonus.
