Gain efficiencies in your processes and deliver cost savings using an Automated Contract Management Solution
Uncontrolled revisions, the use of out-of-date templates and language, random contract routing, contracts collecting dust on people’s desks, and missed notifications of important milestone dates are all problems. Companies that rely on a manual process to close contracts and recognise revenue at the end of each quarter or fiscal year are at a disadvantage because it can be difficult to determine who is responsible for the contract, where it stands in the approval process, and what needs to be done to get it signed.
Using an automation solution, the business can drastically enhance its operations, cut expenses, and boost earnings.
How can the automation of contract management help your organization?
An automated contract management system keeps track of where you are in the contract lifecycle (from drafting to negotiating to executing to monitoring for compliance) and when to take the next step. The human propensity for forgetfulness, misunderstanding, and error is mitigated by the use of automation.
In order to prevent the use of unorthodox contract formats or language during the creation phase, contract management software provides easily modifiable contract templates and preapproved clauses. Due to the high stakes involved, this precaution is necessary.
Once a contract is created, the documents and data associated with it are stored centrally, approval routing is mapped out, progress is tracked, email status alerts are sent out, and contracts can be searched quickly. The solution will also automatically notify the relevant parties of any upcoming negotiation- and completion-related milestones, such as revision deadlines (e.g., when a contract needs to be closed in order to allow another contract to close, or when a contract must be completed to record revenue in a certain period). There is no longer any need to worry about misplacing a contract.
Enterprises can use the automated contract management solution to ensure that all parties are keeping to their end of the bargain and generating the most revenue possible once the contract has been signed (e.g., alerting when penalties are due). Organizations can evaluate potential future contracts and develop strategies with the help of flexible contract reporting capabilities that can be adjusted to fit any business situation.
Returning to a State of Calm
When deciding on a contract management solution, its ease of use and setup are crucial. Instead of making things more difficult for the end user, things should be simplified. There shouldn’t be any need to switch systems or enter information twice. Fortunately, modern contract management solutions are intuitive and simple to set up so that they can be tailored to your specific processes, contract types, and workflows.
An automated contract management solution will provide significant improvements and control over productivity and processes for a contract-overburdened business stuck in manual, paper-based contract management that is often more chaotic than productive. By using a contract management solution, you can take command of the contracting process and, in turn, your bottom line.
