Simplified, Balanced Contract Language Helps Minimize Contractual Disputes

All parties entering into a contractual agreement naturally seek to minimize potential disputes. Despite best efforts, this is sometimes unavoidable. It is therefore generally always in a contract manager's best interest to select language that is understandable, balanced and not subject to easy misinterpretation. Doing so can eliminate disagreements between parties and when they do occur they can be resolved more quickly. A Prime Example Joe Haigh, the head of FDS corporate finance services, wrote a guest article for Real Business describing the measures he takes to assuage any concerns raised by the opposite party in a contractual dispute.

The Evolution Of Document Management: Why Today's Solutions Provide Benefits To Contract Managem

Data and document management have evolved concurrently with supporting technologies, and the way we search for and discover specific information has improved drastically during this time.

The Importance Of Efficient Document Management

Business owners, managers and executives understand the importance of proper document management. Staying involved during the lifecycle of a document, whether it's a contract or any other important form, is crucial. However, documents must be managed efficiently, which hasn't always been the case. A study conducted by Oce Business Services reported that while 90 percent of executives and managers are taking an active role in managing the lifecycle of their documents, only 12 percent said they are doing so efficiently.
