Largest health science educator in California ready to implement Universal Contract Manager
Bridgewater, NJ – February 8, 2022 – iContracts, a leading provider of cloud-based contract, policy, and revenue management solutions today announced that Samuel Merritt University, a private university focused on health sciences located in Oakland California, has selected iContracts’ Universal Contract Manager (UCM) to effectively manage contracts, improve visibility, control access, and measure performance. Samuel Merritt will utilize iContract’s contract management solution to maintain a wide variety of contracts and agreements throughout the university.
Samuel Merritt University has been preparing successful health care professionals for generations. Like most growing universities, Samuel Merritt is managing thousands of contracts and associated documents, many of which relate to the satisfaction of various compliance standards. In an effort to effectively streamline their contract management processes, the need for a robust solution became apparent. iContracts will migrate contracts and data from an in-house system to Universal Contract Manager.
“With the growing needs of our university, we were searching for a contract management solution that would standardize our processes and efficiently track our facility and vendor contracts,” said Jopeth Puno, Director of Procurement of Samuel Merritt University. “Universal Contract Manager was clearly the best choice to centralize our contracts and improve our contract management processes and operating efficiencies. We look forward to implementing UCM and quickly realizing substantial benefits.”
All aspects of an educational institution’s contract management process, including contract creation, monitoring of key milestones and compliance, can be managed by iContracts’ Universal Contract Manager. The contract lifecycle management solution is cloud-based, requiring no investment in facilities, hardware, software or related costs. Universal Contract Manager requires minimal assistance from the university’s IT department.
“iContracts is pleased to welcome Samuel Merritt University to our rapidly growing family of higher education clients,” commented Leigh Powell, Chief Executive Officer of iContracts. “The need for a contract management solution in the higher education market continues to grow as we engage with institutions of all types and sizes across the country.
