Abstract

Negotiation is fundamental to business. Increased automation of business to business or business to customer interaction is demanding efficient but flexible systems that can manage the negotiation process with minimal direct human intervention. Industries that provide online services rely on Service Level Agreements as the basis for their contractual relationship. Here we look at a means for generating these with a negotiating tool (SLA Negotiation Manager) that complies with e-negotiation rules and creates the agreements from existing business objectives.
