Clear, unambiguous agreements
To make sure that you and your customer or supplier are both satisfied after doing business with each other, and want to do business another time, you need to agree on the assignment before you start working on it. In other words, mutual expectations must match before every business transaction.
Good agreements are the basis for all good business and satisfactory results. They show that the supplier’s and the customer’s expectations fitted, because they had made allowances for the real world we live in. Then they drew up a contract in language that both understood. In our world you will find no standard contracts, just as none of our clients produce standard solutions. Each contract is adapted to the unique situation it regulates.
For example, there is a clear framework for price, payment terms, the deadline and quality, with precise specifications of the scope and content of the assignment. Once the parties have agreed on these elements, it is far easier for both of them to deliver and receive the work. They can avoid misunderstandings too.
Should any errors, failures or irregularities occur in the business transaction, a good contract serves as a checklist that both parties can refer to and on which they can base any obligations and liabilities.
