Technology is ever-evolving. We have been discovering new and better ways of doing things since the beginning of civilization. Today, modern companies face an extremely competitive environment where innovation is absolutely necessary to avoid falling behind or becoming irrelevant.
The old phrase, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” no longer applies. Enterprises must optimize existing technologies and explore new solutions to survive. This is especially important in how companies contract with customers and procure services with suppliers. Profitability, regulatory compliance, and an organization’s reputation are all at stake.
“Reluctance to innovate can crush a business,” warns Bianca Miller Cole in Forbes. Now, more than ever in the midst of the Covid-19 Global Crisis, the turn to smart technologies is no longer optional. It is a means of survival.
Those who have been early adopters of smart technologies are suddenly ahead of the game by leaps and bounds. According to Statista, 20% of U.S. adults are working from home during COVID-19. It goes without saying that organizations with the right tools in place are adjusting more easily to remote work than those who’ve been slow to adopt those innovations in the last few years.
The need for innovation can’t be swept under a rug forever.
The Fourth Industrial Revolution is underway. Those who do not quickly adopt accelerated technologies will be left behind. Organizations armed with yesterday’s tools are ill-equipped to deal with the challenges we face today—let alone those we will face in the future.
Complex decisions in business are common. But those decisions are exacerbated when companies lack contract visibility—a clear understanding of what’s within their own contracts. In enterprises, contracts are used multiple times per day, yet contract operations and management has remained relatively the same in most companies for decades.
A lack of innovation in this area is costing organizations millions. Companies that do not deploy smart contract solutions experience increased risk, penalties, revenue loss, and damages to their brand. This is not an issue of “Contract Lifecycle Management” but of knowing what is in your contracts and being connecting to that information when it is needed in a quick and agile manner.
In “Innovation Insight for Advanced Contract Analytics,” published on January 25, 2019, and refreshed on March 4, 2020, Gartner reports that despite growing complexity, risk, and need, many stand-alone contract solutions on the market lack maturity. These tools are not optimized for extracting terms and analyzing data, and few excel at all stages of the life cycle.
Despite the emerging market for smart contract tools, Gartner sees a competitive advantage for organizations that focus on contract risk control. Gartner further recommends that leaders responsible for contract management deploy a contract analytics solution to identify risk, improve compliance, and build a competitive advantage.
Innovative and powerful Ai-based solutions offer the ultimate upgrade to any legacy contract management tool. Insights and full visibility of your contract landscape at your fingertips will help any large organization solve their most pressing and difficult problems.
Solutions like CLM, ECM, or document storage unfortunately fall short in handling diverse contract types, data locations and operational support situations. Leading enterprises find they must adopt multiple tools to manage varied contracts across their organizations. More tools, more solutions, and more fragmentation of data—not to mention, the manual tedium of people combing contracts one at a time—is inefficient and expensive.
In the age of self-driving cars, smart speakers, and Uber, shouldn’t a tool as old as business contracts be streamlined and more accurate by now?
