Contract Management

Maintain visibility of negotiated contracts while reducing unwanted renewals

Your procurement professionals work hard to identify the best suppliers and negotiate “best value” agreements. Contracts 'lock in' those terms for use by the organisation. But those advantages are lost when contracts are not applied as purchases are made - perhaps because contracts are not available or apparent at the time of buying. And both organisations may be at risk if contracts expire or if either party fails to maintain compliance with contract provisions.

There are many challenges to bringing spend under contract: contracts are often filed in different places; distributed contract management leads to duplicate agreements; contract review dates are often missed, resulting in unexpected lapses and unwanted contract renewals; buyers have no visibility of contracts at point of purchase; and without automatic capture of actual purchase and delivery activity, it is very difficult to measure contract compliance.

Solution

PROACTIS Contract Management helps you increase the proportion of spend “under management” and “on-contract” by providing improved visibility and control of contracts throughout the contract lifecycle, and by ensuring that the organisation consistently utilises established contracts when buying goods and services.

PROACTIS Contract Management provides a central electronic repository for all types of supplier contracts, with links to the purchasing system that make them fully visible to buyers. It automatically collects purchase and delivery activity for analysis of supplier performance and buyer commitments. And it continually monitors contract dates and other criteria, alerting the appropriate people when reviews or actions are needed.
