Strategic planning

Four offers strategic planning services to help assess your contract management requirements and create a customised implementation plan. Our services include:

System planning

System planning helps organisations assess their specific contract management requirements. Our experienced consultants will make recommendations to fit your situation, and provide customised implementation plans.

Needs assessment plan

We’ll carry  out an in-depth needs assessment of your current contract management business processes, which will involve on and off-site meetings with your key business users and stakeholders. Throughout this discovery phase, we audit your existing contract management processes, physical and logical systems, and your actual contracts. This enables us to determine the most effective deployment of our Contract Insight solution.

Deployment recommendations

Our highly-qualified consultants will provide ‘tried and tested’ recommendations for your organisation from our best practice portfolio. These recommendations will optimise the use of your Contract Insight solution in the following key areas: software deployment needs – departmental configuration – data conversion/import services – contract data breakdown – attachment standardising – reporting management – systems integration overview – vendor/customer management – security & permissions – alert – e-mail notifications – contract modelling – workflow processes – dashboards management

Implementation plan

You will be given a fully-documented, comprehensive implementation plan, detailing the process to ensure a smooth transition from your existing contract management systems to Contract Insight, our state-of-the-art contract lifecycle management solution. Typically, your implementation will be phased but the schedule will vary according to your installation, configuration, testing, training and ‘Go Live’ requirements.

Flexibility

Contract Insight utilises enterprise-grade architecture and can be deployed in a hosted environment, as a client deployed application, or as a service application.  The flexibility of our deployments on this standardised platform makes it easy to incorporate our systems into your organisation’s technical environments.

Every system we deploy allows for full configuration of screen views, employee roles and permissions, fields and types of information needed. This ability to configure the system to your specifications helps manage the complexity of your information, while ensuring consistency and highly visible, accessible data across your organisation.
