The new release of ICM builds on the continuing success of the platform while enabling cost reduction and compliance in a secure manner.
Highlights of the new release
- Governance and control on third party contracts: Customers will now be able to manage the lifecycle of third party paper based contracts with the same amount of control and efficiency as their own template based contracts. Enabling governance and control on third party documents through language tracking and deviation analysis will help customers reduce risk on third party paper based contracts thereby significantly improving the contracting capability for a variety of industry verticals spread across IT and ITES, pharmaceutical, life sciences, utility and services etc. This advanced capability will empower customers to not only reduce risk during contract execution but also manage them through the lifecycle by focused reporting and visibility to all contractual language and commitments embedded in the third party paper.
- Improved compliance and risk mitigation: Customers can now set up relationships between different contracts and enable seamless enforcement of terms from one type to another to not only ensure improved compliance but also improved risk mitigation capability. Customers can plug leakages that occur as a result of inconsistent terms across a set of contracts with a customer or supplier. This feature will help businesses get their sub-contractor and supplier agreements further aligned to customer contractual commitments, leading to increased profitability and reduced risk of failures.
- Greater Integration features: The Icertis Contract Management product now has enhanced integration capability to not only enforce contract terms on daily business transactions but also consolidate transaction information for compliance tracking and reporting. This will ensure holistic contract performance monitoring to get actionable insights on daily business transactions or on changing contracting strategy.
- Enhanced feature set: The release also delivers a set of enhancements in existing features, based on market feedback which significantly improves the visibility and usability of the system across the contract lifecycle management process.
