Software vendors that are successful with SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) offerings are now leveraging their success by setting up reseller channels for SaaS services. And other vendors that have not yet converted to as SaaS model are looking to initiate a SaaS offering originating through another vendor. Hiring an attorney to structure and draft a SaaS Agreement can be prohibitively expensive. With Digital Contract’s addition of four new SaaS Reseller Agreements to its online contract drafting service, software vendors can quickly and affordably structure and draft the SaaS Reseller Agreement that best fits their needs.
“These four SaaS Reseller Agreements, when coupled with our existing SaaS Agreements for use with end-user customers, essentially elevate our online drafting service to a one-stop-shop for tools for doing SaaS deals”, says Internet attorney Chip Cooper, founder of Digital Contracts and creator of the logic and clauses in his online drafting service. “We’ve embraced the new Elawyering trend because it’s a great value for software vendors. Now, they can structure SaaS deals and draft their SaaS Agreements with our intelligent tools... and if a legal review is needed, my law firm can provide necessary review by phone and email.”
Cooper points out the four basic structures for SaaS Reseller Agreements:
• virtual server;
• virtual desktop, and
• software on reseller’s server.
Cooper has published an article explaining these structures. Read the article at Top 4 Strategies To Structure Your SaaS Reseller Agreement.
Cooper believes that the SaaS trend is here to stay. “SaaS is only going to continue to grow and become an even more significant model for software vendors. It’s high time that we provide the tools to help even small vendors take advantage of the opportunities”, says Cooper.
