Software Development Contracts: What Businesses and Their Lawyers Need to Know

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Learn how to avoid pitfalls in software sales and implementation agreements and steer clear of problems down the road.Software runs businesses, but few devote the time and resources to understand the issues and oddities associated with software acquisition. Unlike equipment purchases, software acquisition involves development, licensing, deployment, support, and maintenance. Too often, the purchase and implementation dooms the effort, and the parties must contend with spiraling costs and inoperable business applications. Many such conflicts could be resolved during the contracting process, before implementation begins. This topic is designed to conveniently educate decision makers for companies that purchase software, and those that sell software or offer consulting services, to understand the pitfalls in software sales and implementation agreements, and to help them understand the nature and scope of resulting disputes before they happen.
