Happy October everyone. We're exited to announce a few new features that have been heavily requested. ContractSafe now allows you to include Custom Fields that are Dates, that integrate seamlessly with other dates you have entered. Any of the Custom Dates that are part of Custom Fields can also be displayed on the Contracts List and in reporting. Finally, you can now display all attached documents and amendments in the Contract List and reporting.Read More
One of the frustrations that we hear frequently is that it can be challenging to get approval for a Contract Management System since the company views it as a cost center, and most new systems go towards revenue.Read More
DocuSign just conducted an interesting study. It seems that more than two thirds of companies still do not have a contract management tool in place. The general theme seemed to be that companies are generally only aware of solutions targeted at large companies. This leads customers to believe the solutions are hard to use, hard to implement and expensive. Generally they are not aware of newer, more affordable, easier-to use solutions that have been introduced lately.Read More
We often post content here that can be helpful to our customers (or others) and this article on the Andreessen Horowitz website was well written and addresses a lot of concerns that we deal with in our sales process. We thought it would be helpful to repost it here.Read More
There’s no way around it – hard working, conscientious professionals despise mistakes. But there’s also no way around the fact that mistakes are a part of the human experience, both personal and professional. In fact, quotation dictionaries are full of great sayings from famous scientists, coaches, philosophers, and regular Joes, explaining that failure is a great teacher and that success often includes a series of failings. But while it may be true that mistakes cannot be totally avoided, it’s just as important to learn from them, and hopefully not to repeat our mistakes.

There are many angles from which one might view the concept of contract management. For example, contract management can help increase revenue, control spending, promote regulatory compliance, and reduce costs. Common sense tells us that improving the effectiveness of any process, when done in a financially responsible way, is a worthwhile business endeavor.Read More
Even in our personal lives, most of us engage in at least a rudimentary form of contract management. Perhaps you have an old metal file cabinet with neatly labeled file folders containing contracts ranging from a lease agreement, to an automobile purchase agreement, to months of utility bills. Or, perhaps you’ve gone digital by scanning and storing your personal documents. Some people, on the other hand, have important papers scattered across multiple locations, shoved in kitchen drawers, or lurking in their car’s glove compartment, all with little organization.Read More
