Year-end reality check: it's crunch time for contracts




Effectively overseeing your organisation’s procurement contracts can be overwhelming. How can you ensure that all of the contracts comply with current drafting policies? Where are the contracts going to be stored? How can you ensure that all of the terms are being complied with completely? When are those automatic renewal dates, and who is going to keep track of them, so that a new subscription period doesn’t start without anyone noticing?

This already daunting task can expand exponentially at the end of a budget cycle. There is always a mad rush of activity as department heads hurry to push through projects, spend remaining budget and finalise contracts before the year closes. 

The end-of-year dash doesn’t have to derail your organisation. Your remaining dollars will go farther when everyone in your organisation works smarter, more efficiently and more diligently. Lightning-fast automation, policy enforcement and true oversight will help you get the most out of your initiatives without taking on unnecessary risk.

Join this webinar to:

  • learn how to speed up and automate processes with digital transformation;
  • understand the importance of getting contract management right;
  • stop the bottlenecks associated with year-end, short-fused agreements; and
  • make true contract oversight a reality.
