One of the Procurement area’s key challenges is to ensure a good contract management by the company. If the items are poorly managed, they can affect business profitability and generate losses for the whole organization.
Unfortunately, it isn’t possible yet to get rid of contractual bureaucracies of everyday corporate life – but Mercado Eletrônico’s CLM (Contract Lifecycle Management) platform can offer full management of all contracts, in a simple and centralized way, with governance, agility and (particularly) cost reduction.
In a single environment, the solution allows monitoring any agreements made with suppliers, partners, customers or employees, in order to reduce risks, control deadlines and achieve more agility in all contract-related processes.
Digital Signature: performance and sustainability
Digital Signature enables users to sign documents in a web environment, and track the signatures in real time. This novelty has been introduced to facilitate and speed up the contract signing process, with guarantee of legal validity.
Companies can also save money, as such process eliminates the need to print and physically store the signed documents, along with transport services to deliver such documents to all those involved in a contract. Additionally, they can use the saved time in activities that are more strategic to the business.
How does digital signature work?
The user in charge attaches the document to Mercado Eletrônico’s CLM platform and defines who must sign it.
All indicated professionals receive an e-mail notification, with a link that leads to the electronic signature section.
Mercado Eletrônico’s system is integrated to the most recognized digital signature platforms. When the contract checking and signing step is over, the user can track the signatures until the end of the process.
