A well-drafted MSA (Master Service Agreement) and a cover letter thereto, indeed, may considerably facilitate the closing of the agreement with a client.
While the template downloaded from the first link on the Internet with mistakes and failed numbering without explications and specifications for the particular business processes significantly increases the odds to close the agreement for your competitor but not for you.
Whether your contracts become valuable assets or pain and tears for your business, that is the history to decide. But, why not to make the contract perfect at the beginning?
The common clients that need to design the contracts on outsourcing are CEOs, founders or C-level managers in the IT companies. The standard provisions required to be included in the agreements with clients (usually MSA and exhibits thereto in the form of time&material, dedicated team and waterfall) are the terms of payment, transfer of the intellectual property rights, non- solicitation and the right to use the information regarding the project in the portfolio.
In the case of the agreements with the team (developers, designers, managers) the customers welcome the provisions on the confidentiality (NDA), non-compete (NCA), clear and unambiguous terms on the termination and strict conditions on the intellectual property rights belonging from the moment of their creation to the customer.
By the way, why not to automate the whole process when you already have well-drafted templates customized to a variety of situations? For instance, it is very convenient to insert just the full name of a new member of the team and to get instantly an automatically generated NDA. We propose a comprehensive approach embracing the whole process: from the creation of a customized contract for your company to the automation of filling in such contracts.
