Tropic was introduced to us at a time where we not only were trying to gain better visibility into renewal dates to be more proactive, but also questioning that our negotiated prices with Vendors truly were the best rates they could provide.
Tropic quickly solved both of these issues! Their easy to follow dashboard clearly shows our contracts, renewal dates, pricing and ownership. For contract negotiation we're confident that Tropic is able to leverage the best pricing available by pulling on their knowledge of contract pricing for other customers of similar size. When considering new vendors their benchmarking tools quickly show us what to expect in terms of pricing saving us time in discovery. We have used Tropic for almost a year now, and they surpassed their guaranteed savings! Can't recommend them enough!
  • Contract negotiation
  • Contract visibility
  • Benchmarking
  • Current contract usage
  • Heads up on surpassing contract tiers
Companies that have significant software and subscription purchases can greatly benefit from Tropic. For companies that don't have as much spend in this area the savings might not be as great!
  • Over $500k in savings in 1 year
  • Hours of time saved with contract negotiation
We reviewed other provides for automated bill entry, but not for contract negotiation.

My organization was not good at negotiating contracts and being on top of opt-outs. We often ended up with terms that were not favorable or auto-renewing a contract we didn't need. We use to address these issues. In particular, we use them to help negotiate our large valued contracts where there is an opportunity to bring costs down, avoid costly year of year increases, and or gain favorable payment terms. In addition to that, their platform allows us to keep track of all of our contracts - effectively a repository of info including who owns it, what period it covers, how much it costs, renewal dates and opt-out timing. The platform even sends reminders to us to ensure we opt out of contracts in time. It's been quite beneficial to our org.
  • Negotiation - they have a lot of data points to ensure we are getting the best price or terms on our new contracts or renewals. They will handle the negotiation for you directly or take help from the sidelines.
  • Opt-out reminders to ensure that we give sufficient notice to SaaS providers that we don't intend to auto-renew (whether for the purposes of adding in negotiation or because we want to drop the provider).
  • They are really good with customer service and support. Always reachable and helpful.
  • Their platform could be improved a bit to do a better job of shadow IT tracking (licenses being used or expenses).
  • Lowering prices for folks who may only want their platform without negotiation services.
Tropic is not ideal if you only have contracts below $5k. There isn't sufficient room to successfully negotiate those down. However, if you have sizable and or multi-year contracts, this is where they excel because they have a lot of real life data points to pull from. They are also tough negotiators. One of our reps owned an exhausting negotiation process with a data aggregator and saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • They returned savings for us that was greater than the cost of their service.
  • The company has better hygiene in terms of being on top of our contracts - from negotiating terms that finance cares about to ensuring we don't let a contract auto-renew.
