Contract Lifecycle Management

Automate the vendor contract lifecycle – from onboarding to offboarding

Negotiating, reviewing, and managing vendor contracts can be a time-consuming version control nightmare when using manual processes or when internal stakeholders do not follow established protocols.

Without a more automated approach to contract lifecycle management, procurement teams might not know when a new service is being contracted, and legal teams might not have the visibility into contracts to ensure the company is protected – all of which introduces unnecessary costs and risk to the business.

Prevalent Contract Essentials is a SaaS solution that centralizes the distribution, discussion, retention, and review of vendor contracts. It also includes workflow capabilities to automate the contract lifecycle from onboarding to offboarding. With Contract Essentials, procurement and legal teams have a single solution to manage vendor contracts, simplify management and review, and reduce cost and risk.
