    Post  shrikantgarud on Sun Jan 27, 2008 8:22 am

    The Contracts Core module acts as a central repository for the collection and dissemination of contract information. It contains all data on terms and conditions, deliverables, and parties to the contracts. This repository is the key to provide a single source for all the information in any contract in your enterprise.

    You can author, execute and control non-industry specific contracts with Contracts Core, for both buy and sell contracts. It helps companies manage internal and external obligations, control daily deliverables, and be focused on contractual goals.

    Contract Phases

    Enables you to create, define, modify, and approve the contract. By using Contracts core/ service you can author and original buy or sell contract, define a contract from a template, or copy another contract. Business rules can be set up to force contracts to go through an approval process to ensure that the contracts are accurate and satisfactory.

    Enables you to review deliverables schedule revisions, communications, and sales information such as quotes or orders. During execution you can track the deliverables and tasks. Communications between parties can be recorded and become part of the contract. Rule are also used to execute a contract, enforcing such things as ship-to and bill-to address, ship method, freight terms and pricing information.

    Enables you to perform contract management such as change requests, renew/ extend/ terminate, copy contract, and so on. Change requests are a formal way of documenting the changes to a contract. You can submit a change request to initiate a contract change. After the change request is approved, the contract can be changed.

    Authoring Flow

    1. The customer and the vendor discuss the options.

    2. The contracts administrator creates the new contract, by using a template, the copy function, and so on.

    3. The contracts administrator authors the contract.

    4. The contract is submitted for online quality assurance check to make sure that all information is accurate and complete.

    5. The contracts administrator submits the contract to the manager for approval.

    6. The contract manager approves the contract.

    7. The contracts administrator sends the contract to the customer who then approves and signs it.

    8. The contract administrator signs the contract.

    9. Once the vendor and the customer have signed the contract, the contract becomes active and the customer is delivered the contract items according to the terms and conditions of the contract.

    The Contracts Core / Sales (OKC/OKO) business flow:

    1. Generate Lead: In Telesales or sales Online a sales representative cerates and qualifies a lead for an existing customer or a prospect for certain items.

    2. Create Opportunity: As soon as the lead gets more qualified, the sales representative creates an opportunity in Telesales or Sales online.

    7. Active Contract: After the approval process passed successfully the contract has the status ‘Active’.

    9. Renewal Process: Prior or after the contract expiration a renewal process can be started.
