The Business Challenges That Contract Management Solve

The digitization of contract management business promises immense benefits to companies. It has also given rise to an
 threat to overwhelm and stifle corporate productivity concerning contract management. Some studies conclude that
simply locating and accessing the proper contract information can occupy more than 50% of a knowledge
worker's time.
Many if not all mid- to large-sized businesses will implement some sort of business-to-employee
contract management portal in the next decade. Businesses implement B2E portals for a few primary reasons:
• To reduce time and effort spent searching for contract management data, and the duplication of effort that
results when information cannot be found.
• To leverage existing assets by providing a secure sign-in point for accessing the multiple
applications and contract management sources they are authorized to use.
• To reduce cost by enabling employees to engage in self-service .
A well-conceived enterprise contract management portal can deliver immense productivity gains and a
significant return on investment. The challenge for businesses today is to ensure that contract management
projects facilitate the flow of information without introducing burdensome new procedures and
administrative costs.

Content Management and good reasons

There are three major ways to enter into the ideas of content management. I'd like to present them to help you understand why content management is so important:

* Content management gives flesh and bones to today's notions of e-business. If e-business is the process of reaching your constituents with the right information and transactions at the right time, then content management is the way to make an e-business real and workable.
* Content management is an antidote to today's information frenzy. Web sites are getting out of control; we are expected to harvest good information from wider and wider contributor bases; and we are expected to make information entirely reusable so that it can be distributed at anytime to anyone. Content management can help you organize and direct your information to keep it under control.
* Content management addresses one of the key unanswered questions of the coming Information Age: "How is it possible to give particular value and substance to a 'piece' of information?" Content management systems create and manage pieces of information and tag them with all the information you might need to figure out what they are worth.

Six tips to succesfull Contract management

Six Tips for Successful Contract Management...
• Maintain contracts in a centralized location - The entire enterprise can
utilize the centralized and searchable system of record to answer any
contract related question
• Implement contract policies and best practices - Contract management
software allows companies to easily establish and maintain contract
policies and force usage of company approved contracts, templates,
clauses, and terms .
• Validate enterprise transactions - Just because your financial system
validates that a payment or receipt has data in all required fields, doesn't
mean that data represents the contractual obligations specific to that
transaction. Contract management software is built specifically to validate
transactions against contracts.
• Automate research and reconciliation of contract disputes - Workflow
based contract management solutions significantly reduce the time, effort
and expense to research and resolve contract related disputes, including
payments, deductions and chargebacks.
• Contract Analysis - In addition to product, customer and segment
profitability analysis, perform contract profitability analysis. Often times,
customers, products or even entire segments are unprofitable because of
contractual inconsistencies or flaws.
• Collaborate on-line with trading partners - Collaboration on contracts over
the Internet expedites contract negotiation cycle times and allows for a
complete history capture of the entire negotiation and all component parts
of the contract.

Content Aware ?

Managing content in past had been up to the content creator, but as enterprise companies realize how valuable their intellectual property is and more regulatory laws emerge, enterprise content management (ECM) platforms represent a viable option to deliver and store content appropriately.

Vendors such as Documentum, IBM, Microsoft, FileNet and Interwoven provide products that can help IT managers get a handle on the myriad forms of content floating around their enterprise. Anything from text-based documents to e-mail messages to marketing images falls under the umbrella of content.

"What companies need in 2004 is to have content delivered in context. When employees are in the midst of working with content-centric application, a good content management system would deliver them more resources based on what they are working on."

These content-aware systems can not only boost productivity and optimize the search process for employees, they can also ensure an enterprise company remains in compliance with new regulations. "Companies need to build content delivery networks that have some sense of what the company, groups and individuals are working on".
