Contract Collaboration

  Contract management has evolved both in the role of strategic importance and technology to support the process.  Clearly automation has become a critical component of the management process. Contract management has evolved from the back office, manual, time-intensive process to an automated, efficient, and innovative process that can drive greater collaboration inside and outside of the organization.

In the past, one depended on out-of-date templates, email threads and version control issues.  With Contract Guardian, you have one-click-contracts (fully merged data),online collaboration including conversations with the vendor and of course complete support for redlines and version control as well as electronic signature.   The entire process is driven by the graphical workflow module in Contract Guardian.
