In previous posts, we’ve introduced you to contract management software and recommended the steps to take as you start searching the different solutions available.
But that’s not the same as hearing from your peers and people who have actually had hands-on experience with contract management software. What better way for you to understand the benefits? We asked some of our Contract Assistant customers about their experiences with our software, and received the following comments:
Since implementing Contract Assistant a year ago, administration of leases has become a much more efficient process. The automated email reminders for key dates, milestones, capital improvement deadlines, etc. have strengthened former weaknesses in lease oversight by greatly enhancing controls over contract life-cycle monitoring. All relevant electronic data (leases, modifications, financial info) is readily accessible through direct links within the software. The software has proven to be a valuable resource for our agency.

Our organization has well over 1,000 contracts to track and we find that the Contract Assistant program is easy to use and consistently performs. We like the fact that we have control of populating the database and that our contracts stay in-house as opposed to being handled by a third party. The service department staff at Blueridge is always pleasant and quick to respond to questions and special requests.

From the beginning, Blueridge Software has provided the most friendly and efficient technical help I’ve ever received. I love the Contract Assistant software. It provides so many different ways to search that I’ve never failed to find a document I needed. The details that can be included in one record are almost limitless. There are also numerous reports available and Blueridge can customize reports for you too. Contract Assistant keeps me organized and makes me look good to my superiors. I love it and don’t know how I ever managed without it!

Since purchasing Contract Assistant, Professional Edition, in 2004, our credit union has been completely satisfied with this software, beginning with its reasonable purchase price down to the responsive & friendly customer service and technical support provided by Blueridge Software. All of our Contract Assistant users find it very user friendly – extremely easy to learn and to work with in managing our contracts.

The University has the ability now to review contracts well in advance and fully research the renegotiation points; cancel a contract in the required timeframe without penalty charges or increased escalation costs; monitor complete contract status in a centralized database; more communications with departments on their contract terms, and eliminate the time consuming manual process of monitoring contracts.
