Acquiring a Contract Lifecycle Management software is a good start. Unfortunately, when it comes to Contract Lifecycle Management software, a good “start” is NOT half the battle. It should in fact not even be the “start”.
All too often organizations do not harvest the expected benefits from acquiring a Contract Lifecycle Management software. A slow or low adoption of a Contract Lifecycle Management software will impair the business case and be a huge barrier for improved efficiency and for harvesting financial benefits from Contract Management in general. A diligent and prioritized implementation process is often the difference between “make it” or “break it”.
We focus on the organizational implementation of the Contract Lifecycle Management software. It is not enough that the “light is on”. There must be a focus on making sure that the software is adopted by your organization and delivers benefits and value.
Together with your organization our experts will plan for early and proper preparation that will give valuable input to the selection process and secures that your organization is ready to engage and comes prepared into the collaboration with the fortunate software vendor.
Focus for this critical process is to execute on the right approach in order to drive process optimization and unification as well as innovation and new ways of working in your organization. We assess your current organization and competences, processes and procedures as well as relevant tools and systems, all for the purpose of identifying areas of improvement and align on and document your desired future way of working. If you cannot describe it, how do you expect a software vendor to configure it.
We know from experience that customers and software vendors often does not “speak the same language”. In the Contract Management domain, standard software does not necessarily equal standard business processes. We are by your side when you engage with the software vendor in the design and configuration phase. Our experts guide you in understanding the possibilities the software provides, as well as the short falls. We engage and inspirer the stakeholders in your organization and communicate their business needs and business processes to the software vendor.
Finally – engage, engage, engage. We have been through many implementation processes, and we have seen the best and the worst. We acknowledge that Contract Management is all about people.
We prepare and execute on the change management process in close collaboration with change agents in your organization and uses standard market methodology or your organization specific methodology to support the transformation. We will stand shoulder to shoulder with you until the Contract Lifecycle Management software is implemented and adopted by the organization. Because results matter.
