Contracts are a critical source of information to an ever-larger number of employees and business processes, but how do you make them work better for you? Did you know:

81% of Global 2000 companies said finding contracts was a concern; 75% listed contractual risk as a major area of concern; and 61% had no idea of the interdependencies among their contracts. (Journal of Contract Management)

Contract automation could accelerate negotiation cycles by 50%, reduce erroneous payments by 75-90%, and cut operating and processing costs associated with managing contracts by 10-30%. (Goldman Sachs)

Organizations could realize savings that equate to 2% of total annual costs by eliminating inaccuracies and non-compliance through improved contract management. (PriceWaterhouseCoopers)
