GLS SMART Schedule - Service Levels™

Making the production of better Schedules more efficient

The Problem

Procurement contracts regularly include schedules which are unclear and poorly drafted – especially in more complex procurement scenarios.  

A lack of clarity frequently results in dispute scenarios arising.

Related challenges include:

  • legal teams spend too long reviewing poorly prepared schedules
  • schedules are usually compiled last minute and by multiple authors
  • important commercial terms are missing and/or lack precision
  • schedules are often cut and pasted meaning poor schedules are replicated
  • you do not have consistent and/or structured schedule templates
  • technical & operational teams lack experience in “plain English” drafting
  • your business does not have an approved common start point to schedule production

 You need a tool that helps your team create complete, clear & comprehensive schedules every time.

The GLS Solution

GLS SMART Schedule - Service Levels™ is a GLS Smart Schedule™ for the efficient production of a comprehensive Service Level schedule.

Recognising that most contractual disputes arise from lack of “clarity” over what is to be delivered or performed, GLS Smart Schedules™ helps your team produce simple, clear & complete schedules.

GLS Smart Schedules™ enables your commercial team to produce higher quality schedules thereby supporting a more efficient (time and cost) & qualitative document assembly process.

GLS Smart Schedules™ leverages emergent best practices around form, content and structure of common schedules to procurement contracts and guides the user how to efficiently produce them.

Each GLS Smart Schedule™ contains a range of SMART features designed to aid information assembly and clarity of meaning – which in turns boosts the likelihood of successful performance.

The emergent result is that critical contractual schedules can be produced better, faster, cheaper and drive a safer contracting experience.
