Contract management is the process of managing contracts from vendors, partners, customers, or employees. It supports the entire customer lifecycle which covers any process that contributes, creates or utilizes contract data. Contract management can be an asset, or a liability, depending on how digital and integrated your process is.


The business world is changing. New ways of driving revenue are forcing companies to re-imagine the way they manage the customer lifecycle — making contract management more important than ever before.
