Contract Management – What to do next?



Contract Management - What to do next?


Contracts and their associated tasks change constantly. How do contract managers know what to do next? The Contract Guardian solution offers easy-to-use ways to manage, track, remind and notify you at every turn in the life-cycle of a contract.

Contract Management Dashboard

The first place is on the Contract Guardian dashboard that is configured specifically to the user profile.  As a contract manager, several important information streams are immediately available:

Contract Management Dashboard
  • Announcements – This is both internal and external contract management update announcements
  • Contract Journal Feed – You will see a stream of the most recent activities where you have responsibility.
  • Recent Contracts – The five (5) most recent contracts that you have visited are shown with an immediate link to the agreement.
  • Upcoming Contract Deadlines – Seeing a graphical representation of deadlines for the next 6 months can be very informative.  Example: A hospital contract manager might see the upcoming physician employee agreement renewals for which they are responsible.
  • Contract Profile Chart – All of the contract types are summarized into a pie chart with the number of each type being displayed.
