The GLS Solution: Audit your readiness for a CLMS implementation

GLS Best Seller   Critical Department Resource   Transformation Essential 

This CLMS Readiness Audit™ is an online, easy to implement, intuitive to use, diagnostic tool to help you assess the readiness for a CLMS implementation.  

The value of a CLMS is significant but the pitfalls are real. The primary purpose of the CLMS is to “enable” your contracting processed - so you need to ensure that they are optimised prior to the implementation of the CLMS. 

Comprising around 150 diagnostic questions, this solution will help you to:

  • assess your overall readiness for a CLMS implementation
  • identify gaps, sub-par and optimal elements in your contracting function
  • give you actionable data on steps to take to improve your readiness
  • flag optimal conditions for CLMS implementation
  • help you make informed assessments about available CLMS solutions

This diagnostic tool will cover all aspects of the contracting function including:  

  • template adequacy
  • contract approval
  • delegations of authority
  • contract segmentation
  • contract parameter definitions
  • current data quality
  • user readiness
  • corporate decision making records
  • change culture
  • document authoring requirements
  • integration requirements
  • current technology usage
  • escalation scenarios
  • approval pathways
  • renewal strategies

This audit solution helps you pro-actively face your future CLMS implementation with data based insights to maximise your team's chances of implementation success. 

If you are serious about a CLMS implementation, this is an essential first step initiative. 

Problem solved.
