Developing an Easy Implementation and Change Management Process

June 21, 2018 • Contract Management • 2 minutes

After the buying process is over, implementation should be simple.

When someone mentions implementation, “quick, easy, and painless” is not usually a phrase that comes to mind. However, with the right tool and a prepared team, this doesn’t have to be the case. It’s possible to have a smooth implementation with a large adoption rate.

Avoiding issues such as communication breakdowns, lack of planning and leadership, and overly complicated products well help implementation be more successful. Preparing and managing a project well with continued reinforcement and change management can transform business processes and help an entire organization work faster and smarter.

Many contract management platforms come with the stigma of a difficult process: hefty implementation fees, training plans that take months or years, and a low adoption rate. Often companies have thousands of legacy documents that need to be uploaded or transferred across systems. Getting Legal, Procurement, or any team to loyally use another tool is no easy task.

The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s possible to discover a platform that has all the right tools and features along with a quick learning curve and processes that can be put into action immediately. Concord was built with customers in mind and modeled after tools that even the least tech-savvy user is familiar with so that the training is intuitive and the process is easy. The implementation was designed to be the antithesis of typical processes—surprisingly simple for everyone from admins to users, a quick transition from legacy to current systems, and dedicated, thorough training. Implementation shouldn’t be presented as a daunting project, but as the beginning of an exciting journey into a new, modern way of managing contracts.
