Introducing the upgraded Contract and Software License management section with many new features to help you easily manage your IT contracts! Here are just some of the new features we introduce with this upgrade, starting with the improved usability:
Related contract – many times you’d like to manage relationships between contracts such as parent/child or master contract and its entitlements (or other type of relationships between your contracts). Now you can capture these relationships with the Related Contract section.
Related users – having a hard time keeping track of who approved or procured every contract you own? not a problem! now you can capture these users with each contract so you can easily see who “owns” each contract.
Contracts now has the auto-tagging capabilities of SAManage (and you can always add your own tags too) and the tasks component, which means you can create tasks that are related to a specific contract and have them assigned to individuals.
Renewal Reminder – as the name implies, this option will send you an email reminding you that your contract is due for renewal. You can send it to all admins on the account or a specific user.
Contract lifecycle – contracts can now how multiple stages within the lifecycle – from draft to in-review, active, or expired, you can now keep track of the status of each contract, and even use SAManage to store your contracts that are still being negotiated before they are approved.
Software license types – you can now capture many different software license types, from “per CPU” to OEM or “Open Source” licenses – track over 23 different license types!
Contract value – to help you focus on the most important contracts you have, we added the Contract value field. As you capture your purchases, SAManage will calculate your annualized contract value and help you stay on top of your most valuable contracts!
Site and department – a contract can now belong to a site and department, helping you keep track of the different organization or business units that owns each contract.
Audit changes – every change made to a contract is now recorded so you can always view the “audit” section at the bottom of the contract to view the change history.New: Contract Management new look and many new features Click To Tweet
