Contract Management Challenges for Professional Services Companies

Today’s professional services companies operate in a customer-focused environment in which firms must often assess customer-generated contracts for risks and obligations.

If left unaddressed, these challenges have the potential to lead to slower time-to-revenue, dissatisfied customers, and possible legal liability.

In working with some of the world’s largest professional services providers, Icertis has identified a number of common contracting challenges:

  • Lack of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) integration impedes intake of customer contracts on third-party paper and slows cycle times
  • Large volumes of third-party contracts require manual review to identify compliance
  • A wide distribution of Statement-of-Work (SOW) and Work Order (WO) operations that lack proper governance under Master Service Agreements (MSAs)
  • Supplier contracts are disconnected from customer contracts, raising the risk of missed deadlines/deliveries due to unforeseen dependencies, especially in situations where work is outsourced
  • Critical project obligations and commitments are difficult to track, and work may deviate from contract rate cards, billing milestones, etc.
  • Insufficient agreement-relationship management for complex contract hierarchies makes it difficult to flow-up and flow-down terms, obligations and financials across the hierarchy
