Like many businesses with a growing contract portfolio, Annkissam, a healthcare technology company, reached the point when their manual contract management processes and spreadsheets were no longer robust enough to meet their needs. The company was growing quickly and adding a high volume of new clients, which created more contracts and more milestones and dates to track and manage. It was clear that dedicated contract management software was needed for the Annkissam team to operate efficiently and effectively manage their rapid growth.
Here's a look at how Annkissam has taken control of their contracts with help from ContractWorks.
Since 2007, Annkissam has been helping people who are aging or have disabilities thrive in their homes and communities by providing robust software for Home and Community-Based Services providers so they can do more with less. Their affordable, high-quality software streamlines complex and ever-changing operations so that their clients can help individuals flourish at home instead of in nursing homes or institutions.
Annkissam has earned numerous awards and accolades in the Boston area and beyond, including being named the Boston Globe’s #1 Place to Work, one of the Boston Business Journal’s Fastest Growing Companies, and one of the Inc. 5000 Fastest-growing Companies.
Contract Management Challenges
Before finding and implementing ContractWorks, Annkissam had been using a spreadsheet to keep track of all their client contracts, a common practice for businesses without dedicated contract lifecycle management software. But as they continued to grow and add clients and agreements, it became more and more challenging to track all of the milestones and key dates within those contracts.
How ContractWorks Has Helped
Annkissam’s Contract Manager Kay Holley is now in complete control over their growing contract portfolio, and has the tools and processes needed to ensure that she’s always out in front of critical contract deadlines and expiration dates. Annkissam has taken advantage of the unlimited users pricing model and fully integrated ContractWorks across their organization, with about 50 employees actively using the system to access client contracts. And while Annkissam currently uses ContractWorks to execute and organize their contracts with clients, they plan to expand their use moving forward to house all agreements within the software, including office management contracts, vendor agreements, and more.
