Proactively Manage Supplier Performance Terms, MSAs, SOWs, and Expiration Dates with EC Contracts

EC Contracts contract repository and contract management module works seamlessly with other EC Sourcing Group solutions or can integrate with your existing procurement, supply chain, or financial software applications via our open API architecture.

Following an eSourcing event or any strategic sourcing process, one of the most important actions is to ensure that the business-related terms, service levels, and expectations you work so hard to negotiate actually make it into the contract. Having visibility to these areas across the organization can help procurement teams, category managers, and operations to optimize value and savings-related earnings improvement.

Our organization understands that each client partner is unique with regards to the contractual insights and dimensions that are most important to its procurement personnel. Managing expiration dates, pricing details, and what vendors the contracts are with are likely important areas for all organizations.
