Présentation

This edition is the essential Canadian business law guide book to analyzing the major issues that arise in outsourcing agreements. Author Adam Vereshack has over 35 years' experience negotiating outsourcing transactions for major Canadian and international companies.

Are you working for a company contemplating a strategic change in business operation?

Want to ensure that once a decision has been made to outsource a business function, you will be in a position to negotiate fair and balanced agreements with service providers?

Take Advantage of Outsourcing 

Acquiring greater efficiency and economy of scale from an outside source allows a company to focus on its strengths and not get distracted from executing its key business strategies. Outsourcing permits an organization to transfer the ownership of certain business functions to another company in order to:

  • Reduce/control operating costs
  • Eliminate the cost of acquiring, updating and maintaining systems in-house
  • Improve process efficiencies
  • Eliminate difficult-to-manage functions
  • Gain access to world-class capabilities and technologies
  • Obtain services where there are no comparable internal resources
  • Free up time and essential internal resources for critical business functions

Negotiate the Best Possible Deal 

A Practical Guide to Outsourcing Agreements, 3rd Edition is the essential guide book for analyzing the major issues that arise in outsourcing agreements. Author Adam Vereshack has over 35 years' experience negotiating outsourcing transactions for major Canadian and international companies. Guidelines and clauses help you to deal with the basic questions of when outsourcing is an appropriate solution to a situation and what issues must be addressed when contracting with a supplier. All issues discussed are based on actual outsourcing negotiations and agreements.

Beyond Borders 

The outsourcing of business functions is a global phenomenon – crossing borders of countries as well as provinces and states. So regardless of where your company is headquartered – Canada, the U.S., Australia, the United Kingdom or anywhere else – if your company is seeking to outsource information technology or business processes, this is the book for you.
