Compliance is expensive and time consuming—keep abreast of regulations can be a full-time job in and of itself, let alone ensuring your company is in compliance. Can automated systems keep your firm in compliance? Absolutely. Whether you work in a highly regulated industry or simply want to ensure your team is using the most up-to-date and legally solid contracts, automated tools can eliminate errors and breaches.
In short, technology can take the pain out of compliance.
Automation tools help with simple to complex tasks. At their most basic level, they help you get organized. They provide a centralized location for all of your contracts and other documents, which allows you to track, audit and report against the things that are most important to your organization. They also let you respond quickly to information requests. Centralized record keeping is especially important in our decentralized work environments. Automation tools keep your information secure and easily located.
At their most complex, automation tools let you extract data and provide actionable insights that you can use to inform business decisions. You can analyze trends across contracts or business units. You can spot potential issues in real time, rather than waiting until something appears abnormal—possibly months after the event has occurred.
You can also use your automation tools to train employees on compliance policies and procedures, and send notifications to stakeholders at critical points.
All of these things take the pain out of compliance for your busy compliance professionals.
For example, ContractRoom automatically and systematically tracks the timely execution of contracted commitments. The tool will automatically push users, guaranteeing tasks are performed on time, on budget and on spec, while providing full visibility and a data record of the entire process.
As volumes of data grow and compliance becomes more challenging to monitor, automation tools are a critical component of your compliance process. And yes, they really can make compliance painless.
