One of our guys has written a great migration tool. Hospitals will often have terabytes of radiological data that sometimes needs to be moved to better computers. That is where our migration tool comes in. Some of our guys were negotiating with Agfa because they wanted to incorporate this tool into the next iteration of their radiology viewstation software.

This big bad Agfa business guy was shitting bricks over our pricing model. It was based on the amount of information migrated. For example if the tool is used to migrate X gigs they owe us Y dollars. This business guy goes on and on about how this is a horrible pricing model.

Then, after an hour of negotiations, our big bad business guy pops a question. "So what's your pricing model for your current migration software?"

The guy replies "oh we do the same thing you're doing."

Go figure.

He's shitting bricks because he's realized that someone else figured out their scam.

Sounds like he's trying to save business for Agfa.

Partners suck. They'll stab you in the back the first chance they get.
