Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Selling High Value Software is written specifically for Small to Medium sized software companies who are already selling or are planning to sell to large Corporate and Institutional end user markets. It is geared particularly towards software companies who develop and sell original intellectual content and has the primary objective of helping those companies gear up their sales teams for high value project engagement. The book is a relatively quick read. I have written it this way so that more people might read it!

The opening chapters are quite light! They are designed to put context on the pre-sale tactical negotiation by (1) creating a clear reference framework for the various "touch points" between the software company and its prospective customer, and (2) establishing a basic understanding of some of the value-creating factors, including licensing, that can have a major influence on deal size. As the book progresses, readers are taken inside the actual "Master Services and Licensing Agreement" and pointed towards certain areas where they are likely to be negotiated. Ideas are provided where appropriate that suggest counter proposals, alternatives and tactical advice on what to do in a variety of "sticky situations"!

The later chapters cut right to the chase and outline some very specific ways which software companies can use to steadily ascend their buyer’s value chain. These techniques are designed to give the software entrepreneur and sales professional maximum leverage for their valuable intellectual know-how. It is expected that these "value-boosters" will serve as a trigger for various permutations or similar ideas which could be practically applied in any given circumstance.

Selling High Value Software aims to put just one new idea in the palm of your hand that can deliver a major value boost in your next a subsequent sales opportunities! There’s a reasonable probability that you’ll apply more than one.
