ContractWorks Case Study: Xeris Pharmaceuticals

As companies experience significant growth and hit major milestones in their evolution, they often need to re-evaluate their existing processes and determine whether the way they’ve been operating is sustainable, or if changes are needed. A company going public without a doubt qualifies as a milestone that would lead to this evaluation, not to mention all of the additional requirements and restrictions that come with being a public company. A pharmaceutical company receiving FDA approval for one of their products is another milestone that would lead to an examination of internal policies and procedures.

Xeris Pharmaceuticals experienced both of these scenarios above in a span of just over a year. During this remarkable phase of growth, the volume and scrutiny of Xeris’ corporate agreements would increase exponentially, leading to the need for a more sophisticated system for managing these contracts and the data held within them. 

Here’s a look at how ContractWorks helps Xeris track contract milestones, tighten internal controls, and provide stakeholders with insights into their most important contracts.

ContractWorks Case Study: Catholic Health Services

Healthcare companies are responsible for managing many types of corporate agreements, including contracts with their physicians and caretakers, service providers, equipment vendors, building owners, and others. For organizations that employ hundreds of doctors and nurses and care for thousands of patients across dozens of facilities, it’s easy to see how details of a specific contract could be overlooked or an individual contract could get hung up in the approval process sitting in a stack of papers on an executive’s desk.

Having the appropriate contract management tools in place is critical for any company managing a large volume of corporate documents, but especially so for those companies operating in a heavily regulated industry like healthcare. Missing one deadline or losing track of the status of a single physician agreement simply can’t happen.

Here's a look at how Catholic Health Services uses ContractWorks to effectively manage their contracts:
