Daydreaming about the future we can conjure up images of flying cars, Jetsons robot helpers, biodomes, and the great, unexplored frontiers of the void – something that rarely intrudes in these fantasies are the thought of contracts. Where do our contracts go in our dreams of a bright and brave new world? Who manages them? Do they even exist at all?
While we’re further away from the Fifth Element than we might be from, say, Robocop, in the world of contract management we are already preparing businesses and processes for what comes next. It isn’t enough for us to go from one year to the next without change or improvement, and it isn’t enough for our clients and customers to remain in stasis – our Agiloft Contract Lifecycle Management solutions are here to help future-proof your business into 2024 and beyond!
One of the most important aspects of system adoption long-term is having something that you know works for you. The benefits of Agiloft’s No-Code platform are many (and you can read all about them in greater detail here) but in implementing your CLM solution the emphasis is on making sure that it is tailored to your needs and specficiations as much as possible. CLM software (and any software, for that matter) is useless without user buy-in – having an easy-to-use and easy-to-customise system like Agiloft’s lowers the barrier of entry for all users, no matter the level of tech- or coding- literacy.
Not only do you get a system that is easy to use, and easy to learn, it’s also incredibly easy to customise! If your needs change, Agiloft CLM can change to meet them – you would be surprised at how much additional stuff can be squeezed out of a system by a dedicated, talented, radiant, and cheerful team of support and implementation specialists.
Being buffeted by the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune is part of life, and in particular part of business life. Market demands change, global events impact in unforseen ways, and sometimes interest just peaks and wanes for opaque and unknowable reasons – it happens. A step towards weathering that kind of uncertainty is by building business resilience, and we’ve found that contract management is a key way you can achieve that.
Contract Management is happening whether you like or not, and it is usually happening as a manual process that is as tedious as it is prone to error. As your business grows it is inevitable that you will need more people to manage your contracts and managers on top of that; a continuing investment into specialist workers who's true value is being squandered on a task that is easily digitised and automated through a CLM solution. A CLM solution helps not just by saving on error, it saves your specialist workers – your legal and procurement professionals – from tedium, and allows them to better use resources to plan, analyse, and help guide and secure your endeavours.
Integrating Ever Onwards
An important part of adopting a CLM and committing to an implementation is making sure that everything works together in as seamless a way as is possible. Luckily with Agiloft CLM we can usually do that – a key aspect of the system that we love at SaaSam is the desire to let users use the systems and programs that they are familiar with to liberate data across organisations and to make sure that processes, transformations, and users are all on the same page.
But that’s something that’s available right now – what makes this truly appealing is the potential for growth. With every update there is the opportunity to add more and more integrations to the platform, so if something isn’t integrated right now or a hot new piece of software comes along in the future you know that there is the possibility of it being added to an already extensive list of compatible systems.
While this is true for the integration as well, we cannot emphasise enough how much moving into the future and planning for the future is helped by knowing that you have stable partners you can rely on for updates and support. Here at SaaSam we are dedicated to providing the best implementation service and the best support we possibly can, all around the world and for all sizes of customer. We have built our brand and our reputation on this support, implementing software and resolving issues for over twelve years!
We love working for you to help build the platform you need, and we love being able to talk about the future in a hopeful way because we know that (if we can) we will be there to help maintain, fix, upgrade, and tweak your tailor-made system so that it keeps on working for you. Whether we are going to work in flying cars or taking Futurama-esque people-tubes or uploading our consciousnesses to a wholly digital world, contracts will exist and while they do we want to be there with you to help!
