Stragentium is a strategic sourcing agency that reviews and negotiates contracts for companies and associations.
While dealing with the legalese in contracts can be a confusing experience, we add clarity by helping to educate your organization about the risks of signing or creating badly written contracts, and show you the rewards of creating value through terms and concessions you didn’t know were possible.
We also offer cost effective contingency negotiation expertise for your everyday needs that could save you tens of thousands of dollars per year. Working on contingency means you don’t pay unless we achieve actual cost savings.
