Contract management is a systematic process of managing contracts to minimize operational and functional risks and optimize vendor performance. It involves contract creation, execution, and analysis. Depending on the business operations, it also consists of termination of contracts. Generally, contract management is time consuming, but automation systems are greatly simplified for organizations. It can help your organization to improve contract management efficiency by as much as 50%.
Digitizing contract management allows organizations to store contracts in a central repository for use by different stakeholders. Legal and compliance departments can quickly fetch contracts for review at any time. Implementing access control ensures that only authorized users across the organization can view and edit any contract, thereby increasing security.
Automated alerts for expiring contracts will allow decision makers to take appropriate action to avoid getting locked into contracts automatically. Digitization makes reviewing current spending against the supplier easy, and detailed information helps reduce operational costs. Modern-day solutions are enabled your organization to uncover untapped savings potential with data analytics and detailed reporting.
