According to research by Forrester and Aberdeen, it takes an average of 3.4 weeks to get a contract approved, but using Contract Management software can reduce contract approval time an average of 82%.
Deals don’t always close as fast as we’d like. The contract review, approval, and negotiation phase is all too often a sticking point on the journey from quote to cash.
We have shared a lot of information about Configure-Price-Quote and the benefits of integrating a quote generation tool with Microsoft Dynamics CRM for Sales. But, another part of the sales process that creates delays, and can kill deals, is the contract phase.
Manual contract generation and approval is a time-consuming and error-prone process. Contracts can languish for days or weeks while Finance, Operations, and Legal review and approve contracts. What’s needed is a level of control over managing contracts, while ensuring contracts move forward quickly.
Contract management software, integrated with Microsoft Dynamics CRM, helps close deals faster in these ways:
A standard automated workflow for each buyer, includes review by business teams, redlining, e-Signature, storage of agreements, and submission to buyers. The same stages and steps are followed for each customer interaction, ensuring efficiency and accuracy.
Adding new sales software is an investment, but one that can increase your sales teams’ success is certainly worth considering. An Aberdeen study shows that about twice as many Best-in-Class organizations report automating their contract management processes than do other organizations. Automating the contract management process enables Sales, Operations, Finance, and Legal to spend less effort on the contract process and generate greater revenue.
