Why the procurement review process digitization?

While every company wants to standardize the contracting process, it’s still too far from reality. Procurement teams or contracting teams spend a lot of time going through the master services agreement, statement of work, service level agreements, rate cards, and payment milestones every time a new project is initiated, or a change order is created. The good news is that the Xybion contract compliance solution can automate most rules-based checks to reduce the manual bandwidth needs by up to 70%.

The high-level workflow

Procurement documents can either be stored in a folder which is monitored by Xybion product to review or this can be configured through the email system eliminating the step to download and store the document in the folder. Xybion solution sends reports through email with all the pass/fail results and the user would have the option to log in to the system to manually adjust results citing the valid reasons.
