Negotiating information contracts with vendors can be difficult without enough data on the true value derived from a product. Jinfo's Consulting Pilot on Value Chain enables you to define the impact of products on generating revenue, enabling efficiency and managing risk. Take ownership of value and better navigate these negotiations.


One of the biggest gaps information professionals have with their information contract negotiations is the lack of data on value and impact. Without this perspective, vendors take the lead on defining value through usage, volume, seats, etc, rather than focusing on the value that the business acquires from the product.

It's YOUR definition of value

How would it feel to enter your contract negotiations with a scorecard to show your suppliers how they contribute (or not) to these goals?

  • Generating revenue
  • Fostering innovation
  • Enabling efficiency
  • Managing risk.

Sound impossible? Value chain analysis can get you there.
