PROACTIVE CONTRACT MANAGEMENT

Increase visibility to contract data that procurement and sourcing leaders need to make better decisions

EC eSourcing Solution
As a strategic sourcing and procurement professional the digitization of your contract documents, financial terms, service levels, and other insights are important across multiple stages of your spend analysis process flow, strategic sourcing workstreams, category management activities, and supplier management tasks. You may be currently evaluating solutions for an upcoming contract management RFP.
It’s likely that your organization doesn’t have just one uniform contract template it uses for every vendor and supplier it partners with.
One of the more important capabilities of any contract management system regarding its impact to the business is how it adapts to evolving and ever-changing business needs. One of the most important adaptations centers on risk. Failing to manage risk jeopardizes compliance, profitability, and, ultimately, the future success of the organization. At the heart of supplier risk management is the process of methodically and efficiently managing corporate contracts and their multiple components and terms within, A progressive contract management solution should be flexible to support these adaptations as well as some of the other capabilities outlined below.
