If you are frustrated with using contract management automation, you’re not alone. 

A recent survey by IACCM revealed that many contract managers have backed away from using contract management automation systems or are tempted to do so.  Responders rated benefits of automation a mere 4.2 out of a possible 10 approval points. They identified many costly and time consuming problems that collectively point to two issues. 

  1. Organizations are failing to successfully adopt these systems or integrate them into their processes.
  2. Less than one third of automation users can demonstrate an ROI from their investment. 

Don’t give up – bad news is getting good!  Two new solutions could put you on track, doing routine CM tasks automatically, leaving you more time for more complex challenges.
