Ariba Contract Management is one of the best solution available and if you SAP ERP then I think there is no second thought.

Oracle E-Business Suite

Oracle E-Business Suite Procurement Contracts is well suited for creating various contract templates based on whether or not you are doing construction work, non-construction work, lease and rentals, engineering services or I.T. services.You can build a set of questions to help guide your users to select the appropriate template or clause but we elected not to go that route.

Cons

  • I don't like that they anticipate an annual revenue based on one quarter. Our business is cyclic in nature. This costs us more money in fees than necessary.
  • I never know exactly who to talk to. I've had to figure it out.
  • Set up was a mess. I had several employees that each tried and only one is necessary and when they leave, I have a problem.

  • Our lawyer has had trouble editing the clauses through WORD
  • We have not utilized all of the functionality within the product
  • We didn't want our buyers picking and choosing from a library of clauses to build a set of terms and conditions. Instead our lawyer has already done the heavy lifting by including everything in one contract template

The product was selected before I came into this position. I am not sure what else was looked at.

Return on Investment

  • Don't use it for Contract Management - only for proposals and invoicing.

  • Increased employee efficiency
  • Ensuring we have reduced our risk by having the correct set of terms and conditions on every PO we create
