With a secure storage space and a robust suite of contract lifecycle tools, your small business can be better positioned to drive sales, track vendors, and focus on what matters most.
ContractSafe's contract management platform helps small and mid-size businesses to:
Small and mid-size businesses rely on contracts to govern nearly every aspect of their operations. From customer agreements, service contracts, NDAs, SOWs, and employment offers - the list goes on and on. These documents are critical to conducting business and protecting companies from legal consequences. However, when it comes to effectively managing and storing these documents, contract management can quickly become a draining cost center for businesses that do not have the right tools in place. Many small businesses rely on manual processes (shared drives, spreadsheets) to manage the contract lifecycle; however, this approach can quickly result in longer execution times, lost documents, and security concerns.
Luckily, ContractSafe’s contract management software for small business can help. ContractSafe provides a secure, centralized repository so business contracts can be easily stored and managed from a single, cloud-based location. With effective search and customizable reports, small business operators can easily locate contracts and stay on top of legal reviews and key contract dates, which ultimately creates greater operational efficiency and reduces long term costs.
Small and mid-size businesses that use ContractSafe's contract management platform to store contracts will benefit from the ability to locate documents up to six times faster while simultaneously protecting documents from unauthorized internal and external access.
Your contract software is the central repository for legal documents across your business, so effective search capabilities are essential to ensure management, legal, finance, and project managers can quickly locate documents and track third party relationships.
Storing documents in shared drives and desktop folders introduces a significant amount of risk. ContractSafe provides a secure, cloud-based repository hosted on Amazon Web Services so that you can be sure your contracts are safe and never lost. Role-based permissions allow you to segment document access by department or employee to add an extra layer of security.
Once a small business starts to grow, it becomes nearly impossible to effectively manage contract dates with shared calendars and spreadsheets. That’s why small businesses and contract teams need to have a systematic, organized approach. ContractSafe’s customizable alerts and reminders help small businesses plan far in advance of key contract dates.
Finance needs access to vendor agreements, sales needs to find customer contracts, and managers need to see everything. With Sharing & Role Permissions, it’s easy to assign document access to teams and even control read / write settings at an individual level. With ContractSafe, you can ensure your organization’s contracts never fall into the wrong hands.
Document review and storage is only one component of your small business contract lifecycle, which is why we make it easy for ContractSafe to plug into the other SaaS platforms that support your business operations.
Not only is ContractSafe easy to use, but we provide best-in-class customer support to ensure your team is successful. From initial integration to long term troubleshooting, our team is by your side every step of the way:
Many small businesses need to be lean when it comes to spending, but cutting costs on contract management can cost you in the long run. Lost documents, missed expirations, or data breaches can have severe financial consequences for small businesses. To be successful, small to mid-size businesses need an organized, systematic, and scalable approach to contract management. Not all contract management platforms on the market are built for small businesses, so it’s important to find an option that meets the specific needs of your business.
