Why we do it
The impetus behind our project, “Contract Lifecycle Management – How to select the right platform?” stems from the critical role that Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) plays in virtually every business context. As businesses increasingly rely on CLM software to manage signed contracts, it becomes imperative to delve into the intricacies of selecting the right platform. CLM platforms extend beyond being mere repositories; they are integral to various aspects of the contract lifecycle, including template and clause management, drafting, negotiation, internal reviews, approvals, signings, obligations tracking, and analytics. Most importantly, a well-configured CLM platform, designed with end-users in mind, has the potential to elevate satisfaction levels throughout the contracting process, both internally and externally. Imagine a CLM platform not just as a tool but as a catalyst for transforming employees and business partners into happier and more engaged contributors to organizational success.
How we do it
Our approach to the “Contract Lifecycle Management – How to select the right platform?” project revolves around a comprehensive understanding of the multifaceted role that CLM plays in modern business operations. We delve into the functionalities of CLM platforms, exploring how they go beyond the basics of contract repositories to become transformative tools. By dissecting the elements of template and clause management, contract drafting, negotiation, and the entire lifecycle, we aim to unravel the nuances that define an optimal CLM platform.
