CLM Solutions Can Prevent Unwanted Self-Renewing Agreements

When you sign a contract, one of the more important aspects of the agreement is whether the contract will automatically renew. You may sign a one-year agreement, but if it is an automatically renewing contract, that agreement will extend past the renewal date if you don't take action to cancel it. Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) solutions help by alerting you of an impending automatic renewal date. This is an important issue for contracts between businesses and their service providers. Suppose an organization hires a consultant and agrees to a year-long contract that's set to automatically renew. If the signatory isn't aware of a pending renewal, he or she likely won't know that the ser

Cost Benefit Of Digitizing Documents And Cloud-Storage

The advantages of digitizing documents and storing them in a cloud environment extend far beyond security and disaster recovery benefits. It's true that a cloud-based central repository can protect important documents like contracts, but the cloud can also assist businesses with achieving their ultimate goal—turning a profit. Strong ROI Converting physical documents into digital files stored in the cloud can deliver a strong return on investment because doing so can cut down on the cost of finding and managing physical storage space. Real estate is at a premium, and businesses only have so much office space to work with. Allocating a substantial portion of your facility to the storage of phy

Contract Reminders and Notifications Keep all Parties on Point

Increasing Management Complexity Tracking important dates and deliverables deadlines can be a challenge. There is no question that technology has made our business lives significantly more efficient, but with more information and many more things to track, technology has also made our work lives increasingly complex and demanding. Without the use of appropriate tools, this situation will only become more challenging over time. Unfortunately, there are many instances, particularly when contracts are involved, involving the creation of a contract, the negotiation of a contract or the fulfillment of its obligations, in which missed deadlines are unacceptable.

Contract Lifecycle Management Solutions Can Help Streamline High-Stakes Negotiations

High-profile contract negotiations can present a number of unique challenges. When there's a lot of money on the table, it's particularly important for negotiations to be conducted properly, assuring there are no significant delays and that both sides are satisfied with their respective commitments and obligations before the contract is signed. This becomes even more important when the results of a negotiation can have a seismic impact on an organization.
