Our 30 day quick-start implementation methodology provides a fast return on investment and the confidence to know that you will never miss an important milestone or risk non-compliance with contract terms or regulatory requirements again.

Central Repository

UCM is a central repository for all contracts and will provide a framework for managing the entire contract lifecycle and contract components. iContracts believes that each contract is not a document but a container of information that includes the actual contract, addendums, milestones, activities, notes, emails, meta data, and much more.

User Adoption

With UCM’s modern intuitive design, users require minimal training and can effectively access and manage their “universe” of contracts. Manuals and training videos are included, allowing users to learn at their own pace.

Reminders

With UCM’s automated reminder rules engine you will never miss an important milestone, expiration, auto renewal, or cancellation term. Rules can be configured to match any desired notification pattern with all necessary staff members notified at the correct time. Paying for unused contracts will be a thing of the past.

Collaborate

Creating an environment of efficient collaboration is easily achieved by using UCM’s customizable workflows, ability to store and group all versioned red-lines (including supporting documents), approvals, notes, emails & activities. Workflows notify the appropriate person at the correct time so all staff can follow the correct procedures for negotiating a contract. Potential bottlenecks in the process will be identified and addressed; ensuring prescribed deadlines will be met.

Reporting

Creating and segmenting usable views of information is a pillar of how UCM will help you not only manage contracts but analyze the quality and effectiveness of your contract process. Create an unlimited number of repeatable and ad-hoc reports like expiring contracts, workflow bottlenecks, obligations, renewal terms, purchase level utilization, and much more.
