RampRate Helps Companies to Source, Optimize & Negotiate IT Contracts
for Cloud, Managed Services, Data Center, Telecom, CDN, and Software.
A mid-sized private equity firm—$18b in aggregate revenue—was seeking to improve synergies in its investment portfolio. It had previously negotiated group telecom purchases with two large carriers, but was not able to do so in other areas without directly underwriting its portfolio companies’ financial responsibility to providers.
“RampRate was a risk-free proposition money-wise. If they didn’t save or create us at least twice their initial fee we’d get a full refund. And with 100 big-name clients, there had to be something there. But I was worried that in negotiating lower rates they might undermine my key relationships. When they came in and said they could carve out 27% savings and optimizing contracts, I thought it was impossible without undermining key relationships. But they hit that number and the relationships are stronger than ever.”
Paul Santana, Manager of Data Center Operations, eBay
“I knew I was leaving a bit on the table in our outsourced contracts. But the corporate mandate is growth and innovation, and when further contract improvement seemed to be marginal, my team’s first priorities had to move elsewhere. We can count on RampRate to be precise, timely and create millions in value.”
Dean Nelson, Vice President of Global Foundation Services, eBay
