A patient-centric biotechnology company needs to oversee an end to end process of multiple contracts at a time. Routing of contract related tasks was limited to a single person, so the process was often choked in the absence of that person. The company was unable to figure out a way to know about upcoming tasks and critical deadlines associated with the contract.
With the successful implementation of eContracts, the company now uses a single platform to manage its contracts and monitor contract activities. Managing tasks related to contracts was simplified and users were getting notified proactively for upcoming deadlines.
