Robust contract data management, contract analytics, and contract data security provide the necessary insights and protection for organizations to cut contract lifecycle times with enhanced control, governance, security, and visibility. Organizations can transform contracts into powerful, data-driven sources of business intelligence that support contract strategy, contract management KPIs, and goals with the help of leading contract management software. Here’s how.
As was detailed in our recent blog on CobbleStone’s PC Helper App for MS Outlook, contract generation is a multi-faceted process. A unified procedure for contract collaboration, contract writing, and contract negotiation can be hard to come by. The “track changes” feature that comes with MS Word out of the box can help make the contract negotiation process easier with redlining. However, version control issues can arise when contract stakeholders work on different computers in disparate locations. In turn, documents that are saved locally can easily get lost – potentially resulting in more work for involved contract stakeholders.
To avoid issues such as lost document versions and contract lifecycle bottlenecks, CobbleStone Software’s latest release of its celebrated contract management software – Contract Insight® 17.7.0 – offers a PC Helper App that seamlessly integrates with MS Word. Here’s how to use that functionality.
Many times, contract managers work in a fast-paced environment with short deadlines. When dealing with an influx of emails containing a plethora of documents, the lack of integration between an email platform and a contract management system can cause important documents to fall through the cracks - thus increasing contract workflow inefficiencies. Thankfully, a user-friendly contract lifecycle management software system integrated with MS Outlook can streamline the contract lifecycle. This, in turn, helps contract managers, legal teams, procurement professionals, and sourcing professionals save more time and reduce contract workflow bottlenecks.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is positively impacting organizations across a vast array of industries. Developments in AI are proving incredibly valuable as they apply to contract management software systems. Contract management AI can transform static documents into dynamic assets for better contract lifecycle management. Here’s how to step into the future of contract management with powerful contract intelligence.
