Tracking contract management data with manual and disparate processes throughout the contract lifecycle can prove challenging. Without readily accessible contract management reports for contract financials, workflows, budgets, KPIs, vendors, compliance, and other essential contract metadata, you can waste time and energy. Fortunately, leading contract management software can provide you with contract management reports for robust source-to-contract lifecycle management oversight.
Contract Management Reports
Contract management reports showcase contract analytics gleaned from selected contact data – including KPIs, contract workflow tasks, departments, budgets, financials, vendors, bids, compliance, obligations, renewal dates, and more. Robust contract management reports usually involve the support of a leading contract lifecycle management software system, equipped with detailed contract data searching, executive graphical dashboards, and financial tracking.
Contract Data Searching
Finding necessary contract data without a robust search tool can waste time and delay contract management processes. Fortunately, leading CLM software offers a user-friendly searching tool that can populate quick results of records for review – including contracts, vendors, and solicitations. A robust CLM search tool can also offer search suggestions based on initially typed searches and full-text search ancillary OCR'd record files. Moreover, leading contract management software provides field-level search - such as "Contract Title" – that can be sortable, filterable, and exportable. Field-level searches can also be saved for future on-demand searching and reporting.
