Contracting for the future.
GSMA leaps forward with SaaSam and reaps rewards for all
Faced with the reality that the organisation had outgrown its existing contracting infrastructure, the GSM Association (GSMA), which transforms millions of lives worldwide through innovative mobile technology, needed a pioneering solution closer to home.
Representing mobile operators across the globe, uniting handset and device makers with software companies, service, equipment and internet providers, GSMA needed an answer from a team it could not only trust but one that truly understood its vision and scale.
“We needed a system that was flexible, created a single point of truth and linked to our new ERP system, ultimately making it easier for our users” said the GSMA’s Senior Project Manager and Business Analyst.
“Our 5 shortlisted products soon became two and once we met with the SaaSam team we knew we had found a retailer who listens and in Agiloft a product that delivers.
Heather, Mags and Talia quickly road-mapped the key requirements of the configuration:
- Empower users in a decentralised procurement environment to generate draft contracts
- Enhance GSMA’s existing CLM (contract lifecycle management) processes across the group
- Enable the legal team to centralise authoring, templating, publishing and version control
- Ensure core users capitalise on technology to simplify processes while maintaining policies
- Integrate with finance, single-sign-on (SSO), e-signature and HR systems
- Growth potential for supplier management and wider RFx
A year on and SaaSam has supplied, configured and implemented a tool that has more than met GSMA’s expectations. “Once we began to understand the power of the Agiloft software provided to us, with new and expanded requirements, we saw opportunities for further innovation across the business” explains GSMA – and the beauty is in the one stop solution and a single team bringing it all together.
The accuracy of information captured together with the strict adherence to corporate policy and procedures sees users working smarter, with less margin for error and ahead of deadlines.
“Now that we can use a central repository we don’t need to worry about manual versions of contracts and our automated validation checks mean there is no stupid data entering the system manually”, says GSMA.
Beyond CLM the GSMA team has recognised a huge number of efficiencies available “We see great opportunities to utilise Agiloft for other areas of the business, and will certainly consider looking to add further functionality at some point”.
