Whether you’re familiar with Oneflow or not, one of the services we offer is the ability to sign documents using an e-signature. But this is merely the tip of the iceberg and there is so much more innovation in our box of tricks.
Our motto is “less contract admin, more contract magic” and that’s exactly what we aspire to provide throughout the entire contract management process. Oneflow doesn’t just focus on the signing aspect of the contract lifecycle, it’s a holistic platform that also handles the pre-sign and post-sign elements too. From creating, to collaborating, signing and storing. Let’s explore what you can do using Oneflow besides e-signature.
Why is contract management important?
Contract management is an often overlooked but essential aspect of management for any business. Contracts impact every aspect of business, from Sales, to HR, to Legal and Procurement. Even a small company can deal with hundreds, if not thousands of contracts on a regular basis.
Having so many agreements with third parties at once can become a huge task to manage properly. Failure to renew a contract, negotiate a new one, or store one can have dire consequences to your bottom line and could result in customers losing faith in your company and churning.
HTML based – see edits in real time
While there are still many people using PDFs for their contracts, we’ve realized that times have changed and this format just doesn’t cut it anymore. PDFs are static documents, which means that all the data contained within is trapped and cannot easily be transferred between systems.
Oneflow’s digital contracts are HTML based, which means that it’s essentially a living document. All parties are able to work within one version of the document and edits can even be viewed in real time, even after the contract has been sent. This removes the inefficiency and tediousness of sending documents back and forth with changes multiple times.
Vital information can also be captured from a digital contract and synced directly to the software and platforms you use elsewhere in your business, such as your Google CRM. Much more than just e-signature, right?
