Peter Drucker is often quoted as saying, "You can't manage what you can't measure." That is certainly true when evaluating contract management. Unless you measure something, you don't know if it is getting better or worse. You cannot see positive progress unless you measure to see what is improving and what is not.
Peter Drucker, world-renown business philosopher, is often quoted as saying that "You can't manage what you can't measure." That is certainly true when it comes to the management of contracts and their associated workflows. Let’s face it, unless you measure something you don't know if it is getting better or worse. This is the reason we are releasing additional features in our Key Performance Indicator module for Workflow.

Record or contract level security is common among vendors. However, we have noticed that a number of vendors do not offer the field level and field set flexibility that is built into Contract Guardian.
Record-level (Meta data for contract) permissions are granted at the entity level, but you may have certain fields associated with an entity that contain data that is more sensitive than the other fields. For these situations, you use field level security to control access to specific fields. Examples might include certain financial or legal information that should only be seen by the CFO or the Legal Department. The scope of field level security is organization-wide and applies to all data access requests including viewing of the contract data, searching, reporting, and audit journals.
Turning this feature on is as simple as checking the restricted option in the fieldset checkbox and identifying the users/groups that are authorized.Learn More About Contract Guardian Security
