Collaborative Contract Management:
Among the many internal and external demands and pressures facing procurement organizations in 2015, both compliance and risk management remain near the top of the list.
Procurement departments have long used contract management systems to communicate business requirements, track spend against contracts and manage supplier relationships. However, as the capabilities in these systems continue to advance, procurement’s ability to improve contract compliance and insight into contract obligations, as part of a wider corporate compliance and risk management strategy, must follow in stride.
