Build It Or Buy it?


We live in the era of ‘do it yourself’. We’ve been taught that doing it yourself, doing your own thing, not wanting (or needing) to be reliant on another organization is the right way to go. And that’s why so many organizations have gone it alone and built in-house solutions to support key processes. Now, whether you’re one of those business entrepreneurs, or you work for one of them as a project manager, business developer, or fulfil any other kind of important business role, you’ll know that maintaining a solution that fits and supports your business process exactly is the most important thing.

But sometimes – just sometimes – taking an already built service from another organization can be very useful indeed. Not everything can be done in house, and you shouldn’t be expected to have to do everything either. It’s time consuming for one thing, and expensive for another (if you have to hire specialists for every little thing, you’ll soon be paying far more than you want or need to).

But taking off-the-shelf solutions means you must compromise on how well the software fits your organization – doesn't it? Well not always. At intelligentcontract we have worked hard to be sure our solution can be bent and moulded to fit your organization perfectly – as though it was built just for you. Here’s the some of the reasons why we think you should choose intelligentcontract as your perfect fit contract management solution.

Reason 1: Your Process – Your Way

Although at intelligentcontract we look after a large number of varied organizations, no two are ever the same when it comes to their contract management processes. We listen to what you want and work with you to ensure that you get it. intelligentcontract gives you a solution that matches your process exactly and so it’s immediately familiar to your users resulting in higher adoption rates.

That’s reason enough alone to use us for your contract management needs. But there’s more...

Reason 2: You’ve Got the Look

When you register for our contract management system, you get to use your own logo, strapline and brand colours all within your very own personalized account. It all looks as though it comes straight from you, allowing your users to sign in and do their thing on what looks like an internal system – we can even hide our branding. That makes the users happy, and because we’re looking after it all for you, that makes you (and us) happy too.

Reason 3: Layouts to Suit

Unlike some contract management solutions, ours is genuinely fully customizable, and that includes the form layouts. You can have as many completely unique fields as you need, so you don’t need to compromise on the information you have on the portal. Don’t worry that you can’t get everything you need and want on there – there is no limit, and your fields can be moved to wherever they are needed. Never lose information again simply because you didn’t have the space for it.

Plus, you can change the layout at any time by yourself. Add fields, remove them, change things around – it’s your portal, you use it as you need to.

Reason 4: Reporting Your Way

When you want to see your data, you want to see it in a way that makes sense to you. That’s why our online contract management system is ideal – we can design a portal that gives you the information you need, and gives it to you in the best possible way. Using our fantastic wizards, you can build reports to your exact specification, making finding facts and figures, and creating presentations quick and easy.

Reason 5: What’s In A Name?

Contracts or agreements? Reminders or Alerts? Does it matter what things are called? It does to some, and perhaps it does to you. And that’s no problem at all. Thanks to our easy to use service, you can call the features on your portal whatever works best for your organization.

Reason 6: Individual Security

Not everyone needs to see everything when it comes to a contract management process. With our great portal setup you can choose who sees what – it could be different for every one of your suppliers, clients or work colleagues, giving you the ultimate in control. P.S. we also support read-only users if that’s what you need.
