A Better Way to Pay – Webinar Recording: Feb 13, 2018
Winthrop Resources, a NERCOMP partner, has been providing a better way to pay for technology to educational institutions of all sizes since 1982. Winthrop’s financial solutions provide a lower risk strategy for addressing today’s disruptive environment and they make how you pay for your technology a competitive differentiator for your institution.
Winthrop’s custom finance structures and utility billing (pay as you use) funding models enable you to make the right technology sourcing decisions, swap or upgrade technology whenever necessary and allows for the preservation of cash / lines of credit, all while avoiding the risks of obsolescence and end-of-life disposal issues. As a NERCOMP partner, NERCOMP members will receive special pricing incentives, vendor objective procurement consulting and sharing of best practices throughout the NERCOMP membership network.
NERCOMP negotiates the best prices and terms possible for its members and works with outside legal counsel to facilitate the arrangements between NERCOMP and the vendors. Outside counsel conducts an initial legal review of licenses and agreements on behalf of NERCOMP but does not provide an individualized review on behalf of any particular member institution.
Each member institution signs its agreements or purchase orders with vendors individually and the institution itself is liable for the rights and obligations therein. Members are strongly encouraged to have their agreements reviewed internally by their own counsel. Note that in addition to the agreement posted on the NERCOMP website, additional terms or conditions may be incorporated by reference within the agreements.
In addition, NERCOMP often negotiates separate agreements with vendors governing NERCOMP’s own relationship to the vendor. Although NERCOMP members are not parties to these agreements, NERCOMP will make copies of available to any member for review, upon request.
