Contract management

Manage contracts efficiently and minimise contract risks
Contracts are the foundation of your business activities. They control all transactions with groups of people who are in any way connected with your company – whether they are suppliers, clients, staff, partners, licensors or service representatives. Through the dynamic and targeted deployment of contractual agreements, your company can concentrate more intensively upon its core competences and increase value creation. Business relationships are becoming increasingly more complex nowadays. The management of contracts has therefore become a multi-layered and important company task.

There are diverse reasons, why efficient and transparent contract management is of vital importance to your company - e.g. minimising contract risks, upholding legal requirements, identifying optimisation potential or the reduction of costs by process optimisation and standardisation.

Appropriate contract management basically supports two fundamental corporate tasks:
  • Drafting, management and processing of contracts
  • Identification and analysis of business-relevant risks and opportunities from the contracts

In the field of contract management a multitude of different approaches and IT-supported tools are publicised. The challenge lies in finding a solution that meets your requirements and which can be integrated. MAK has no financial relationships or contractual commitments with manufacturers or sellers of products and systems. We therefore focus upon objective support for finding your solution. Besides the comprehension of the groups of people involved, business-relevant IT aids and the costs-benefits consideration, it is important to identify and understand company-specific requirements and basic conditions.
