Let Me Ask you a question.
Be honest …
How would you describe your contract management system?
• Manual and inefficient?
Well if you said anything other than, “A streamlined, automated machine...”
You’ve come to the right place.
Assuming you have a contract management system, it’s likely a cumbersome process, with your employees scrambling around.
- Sending countless emails back and forth.
- Comparing different versions of the contract to find the most recent one.
- Trying to track down the person with signing power.
- Missing crucial deadlines, terminations, or upcoming renewals.
- Losing opportunities to renegotiate tough terms.
- Suffering payment errors and penalties, and even increasing your risk of litigation.
They’re busy. And they try hard. But are they really able to keep up with manually tracking and administering the piles of contracts that virtually every business generates?
Yet at the core of every business today are contracts.
They govern everything from employees’ daily actions to even the business entity itself.
So if you want to grow at the speed of business these days without increasing your risk of cost overruns and litigation, you need a streamlined and automated contract management system.
In fact, according to Entrepreneur Magazine, if your company has more than 10 contracts, you will benefit from even a basic contract management system.
But how do you do it?
How do you:
✓ Keep all of your contracts at your fingertips so they never get lost.
✓ Stay on top of expiration dates and milestones
✓ Keep alert to upcoming renewal opportunities
✓ Streamline your approval process
✓ Equip yourself to meet obligations and enforce your rights.
And how do you build a system customized to suit your exact needs?
And how do you do it if you’re not an expert contract manager yourself?
