Here’s how.
Contract writing - also known as contract authoring - is a critical stage of the contract lifecycle. The contract writing process involves contract parties putting into written copy the terms of a contract. One extremely important facet of contract writing is contract clause management. Insufficient contract authoring procedures as they pertain to contract clause management often rely upon disorganized tracking of versions, a lack of unified contracts and subcontracts, and - unfortunately - scattered clauses. Such processes can leave your organization with contracts that are missing clauses, an overlooked mass of key dates and milestones, and unified contract lifecycle management.
Contract writing is an essential phase in the contract lifecycle. During the contract writing stage, contract parties put the terms of a contract into written copy. Inefficient contract writing processes often rely on scattered clauses, poor compliance management and version tracking, insufficient line item management, and a lack of unified contracts and subcontracts. These processes can lead to an organization that is hindered by error-prone contracts with missing clauses, missed key dates and milestones, and a decentralized process that impedes the contract lifecycle.
