A significant chunk of an organization’s operations are made possible through connections with third-party vendors, and the strength of these ties has a direct impact on revenue. Contracts with vendors may be just as significant in this system as those with clients. There are many differences in how businesses handle the acquisition of goods and services. While a fragmented and ineffective system might have the opposite and damaging effect, one that centralizes data and streamlines workflows can significantly enhance outcomes and enable more profitable long-term third-party relationships.
With Strunk’s Vendor Manager software and a vendor contract management plan in place you may mitigate potential risks and increase the value of your vendor relationships. Having a central area to store your vendor contract information is crucial for effective vendor management. Having access to this information will make your procurement process more efficient. Using Strunk’s Vendor Manager software has several advantages, including helping you arrange your vendor contracts, summarizing the significance of each contract, and assisting you in producing alerts and notices of Renewals.
Strunk’s Vendor Manager software also provides a place for you to store your vendor’s contract and most importantly their due diligence material. A contract scorecard is also included in the vendor management software from Strunk. This scorecard will assist you in locating any gaps in your contract and provide a space for you to record proposed improvements. The scorecard in Strunk’s vendor management software allows our clients to assign a service score for each provision by using a master service level agreement to include clauses that are common in vendor contracts. Organizations can guarantee that each step of the contract lifecycle takes place automatically based on a set process by automating their vendor contract management and compliance using a contract tracking system like Strunk’s.
