Business Challenge

You’re responsible for evaluating and managing contracts and working with other functions within your organization to ensure that the contracts meet their needs. You’re pressured for quick turnarounds but your speed is slowed by a plethora of redundant administrative tasks and the burden of managing a mix of paper and electronic information housed in a variety of places. You don’t have visibility to where contracts are located, the terms that are typically in place or the number and cycle times of active contracts. You need to stay compliant with evolving privacy laws but managing risk and compliance can be challenging. There are tools available that could automate the process, increase efficiency and reduce time you spend on administrative tasks, yet capital and IT investments for a contracts system are challenging in the current business environment.

How this affects you

  • Sensitive documents may be lost or viewed by unauthorized people.
  • Your time is relegated to redundant, time consuming tasks and your customer service suffers.
  • Your organization is exposed to risk, unevaluated contract renewals, reuse of outdated language, unfavorable terms and revenue leaks.

What if you could

  • Remove redundant, time consuming tasks, reduce errors and speed your turnaround?
  • Gain centralized visibility of your entire contract management process with the assurance that your information remains confidential, secure and private?
  • Easily identify the value of a contract in process and prioritize how quickly it can be completed?
  • Solve your information management challenges without purchasing a new system or burdening your IT organization?
