  14. 14. Sample ECLM Benefits 14  Cost Reduction – Vendor Compliance/Contract Coverage – T&C Adjustments – Improved Renewal Management – Payment Penalty Reductions – Application Rationalization – Contracting Process Efficiencies  Revenue Enhancement – Increased Renewal Rate – Automatic Rate Increases – Increased Effectiveness (Proactive Negotiations; Analytics)  Risk Mitigation – Deal – Supplier/Customer – Supply/Product/Service – Enterprise/Regulatory Become a value producer and not just a cost reducer through ECLM!
  15. 15. Sample ECLM Costs 15  Hardware & Software – Software Licenses • Internally Hosted • Externally Hosted • SAAS – Hardware (App & Web Servers) – Software Maintenance – Ongoing Operations/Support  Implementation – Template Rationalization – Application Installation & Configuration – Application Integration – Data Migration – Testing – Operational Readiness – Program/Project Management
  16. 16. Sample ECLM ROI Calculation 16 ECLM ROI = $5-10M over 5 years
  17. 17. Client Examples of Tangible Business Value 17 Poor Visibility into Contractual Obligations and Liabilities Resulted in… $10MM of IP royalty payments not collected because contract was not entered into any system – i.e., zero visibility • An internal audit found the contract which was on the desk of an employee who left the organization 6 months prior $20MM of penalties paid due to late payment (6 months) of contractual obligations • 10-20% of company annual profit at risk due to underestimating contractual obligations • A/P understated • Underestimated budgets for future liabilities $4MM overpayment for a service procured without being aware of an existing preferred supplier contract with lower prices
  18. 18. Polling Question Answers 18 1. For most organizations, a new contract is created no more than every 7 minutes YES. Most organizations create between 20,000 - 40,000 contracts annually which amounts to a new contract being created every 3 – 6 minutes. 2. The cost of implementing contract improvements per contract over 5 years is less than the cost of a brand new iPhone YES. The cost for implementing and support an ECLM solution over 5 years is roughly $5.6M, divided by 40,000 contracts = $140 per contract (vs. $199 for the new iPhone 5S).
  19. 19. Enterprise Contract Management Implementation Customer Profile: Leading provider of information technology solutions Challenges/Situation  Locating executed contracts and determining expiration dates for existing contracts  Lack of a contract request process for over 300 sales individuals to easily enter contract metadata and terms to generate a contract.  Inability to track whether/not bid assurance has properly reviewed contract and if appropriate approvals have been received on SOW before being presented to Customer.  Contract execution (receiving Customer signature and internal counter-signed signatures) taking too long. Delivered Solution  Integration between Onit (contract request system which also holds External Party information) and Emptoris.  Ability to draft, negotiate, review, approve, and execute Statement of Works and Change Orders through Emptoris.  Internal signatory clauses can be inserted into contract (only by individuals with the correct security) in lieu of e-signature functionality. Business Benefits/Results  Better success in end-user compliance with internal policy guidelines  Retirement of SOW Central (legacy SharePoint directory holding contracts)  Reduced drafting, review, approval, and execution time for contracts  Ability to present contract via email directly to external party rather than having to send contract offline (through Outlook)  Template governance in place allowing appropriate individuals from Program Sales and Legal to make legal/business language updates.
