Making a Software Maintenance Agreement

  • What is a Software Maintenance Agreement?

    A Software Maintenance Agreement is often prepared by a software technician to record the terms of an arrangement made with a client. When it is drafted properly, this essential legal agreement may help to limit the likelihood of disagreements between the signers. Different from the generic templates that you might download elsewhere, each Software Maintenance Contract that is built on Rocket Lawyer comes with the option of Document Defense®, so an On Call attorney can assess the situation and take action if you need to demand payment or have another issue.

  • Do software technicians need to use Software Maintenance Contracts?

    Regardless of how long your business has been in operation, it's critical to record the details of your work in a contract. Using this document could be good for you due to the following benefits:

    • The software technician and client both understand the scope of their responsibilities
    • Both parties know when invoicing will happen
    • Neither party is surprised by how long the engagement lasts

    In the end, if you and/or the client fail to sign a Software Maintenance Contract, you might not be able to enjoy all of the associated benefits and protections.

  • What details does a software maintenance agreement template typically include?

    The specific details that you should plan to cover are:

    • Contact information for your client
    • How much it will cost and when payment is due
    • What the start and end dates are
    • What tasks you will be doing once hired

    As expected, your agreement from Rocket Lawyer also contains the typical language with regard to the non-employment relationship, the protection of confidential information, the method(s) of dispute resolution, and finally, indemnity. During the process of making your contract, you also can decide which state's jurisdiction it will fall under. Using the Rocket Lawyer document tool, you have the ability to make additional custom alterations, as needed.

  • What would I usually pay for an attorney to draft a contract for software maintenance?

    Luckily, you won't need to pay hundreds of dollars to get your contract in writing. When using Rocket Lawyer, anyone can draft a free Software Maintenance Agreement today. Your contract will be constructed section by section, as you answer simple questions to enter details. Simply tap or click on "Make document" above to begin.

    If you've got any hesitations or concerns about the process, you can talk to a lawyer today. Also feel free to check out more business documents in our library.

  • Am I required to do anything else after I draft my Software Maintenance Agreement?

    Alongside your Software Maintenance Agreement, you'll find a set of instructions on what you can do next. Feel free to take any of the following actions with your document: editing, downloading it as a Word document or PDF file, printing it out, or signing it with RocketSign® electronic signatures. Most importantly, the client should always get a copy of the fully executed contract.

  • Can my Software Maintenance Agreement be checked by a lawyer before it is signed?

    Locating a lawyer to check your contract might take longer than you think if you attempt to do it by yourself. Another approach could be through the Rocket Lawyer On Call® network. Rocket Lawyer members are able to ask for advice from an experienced lawyer or ask additional questions. As a small business owner or operator, you can work confidently with Rocket Lawyer by your side.
