SoftCo Contract Compliance tracking and reporting manages the request and control of contract-based spend within the SoftCo eProcurement module and facilitates contract and invoice matching within the SoftCo Accounts Payable module. The solution presents comprehensive reports on exceptions, status, renewals and any overcharges that occur.
SoftCo Contract Compliance works seamlessly with the SoftCo Accounts Payable and SoftCo eProcurement solutions to configure installment plans and ensure you only receive accurate invoices from your vendors, as per agreed effective contracts. The solution creates forecasted amounts per month for each contract and as an invoice is processed against the contract, it is allocated to its correct month.
Automatic Matching and Alerts
SoftCo Contract Compliance automatically matches invoices to agreed installment plans, without the need of a supporting purchase order or a goods receipt note. AP staff are no longer required to carry out manual accrual tasks for forecasted invoices.
SoftCo Contract Compliance allows you to generate invoices to be matched against vendor contracts, before sending payment to vendors. Where there is an existing agreement in place with an agreed payment cycle, such as a monthly rental payment, SoftCo Contract Compliance removes the need for vendors to send an invoice in order to be paid. Invoice lifecycles are significantly reduced, payments are made on time and all relevant data is included on invoices.
SoftCo Contract Compliance provides tolerance settings, allowing invoices received to be higher or lower than the agreed contract by a certain predetermined amount, and still automatically match. Automatic alerts notify charges that are outside of set tolerances, which can then be queried with vendors.
Storage and Security
SoftCo Contract Compliance provides a secure and centralized repository for storing all agreed vendor contracts. Contracts are accessible instantaneously at any time subject to user permissions.
The solution facilitates the setting of permissions for the information your business users can view on your stored contracts. All contracts are stored as password-protected PDFs, preventing unauthorized access, printing and saving of contracts.
Contract Lifecycle Management
SoftCo Contract Compliance management software offers full lifecycle management for all of your contracts, from initial storage to search and retrieval, auditing and reporting, right through to contract renewal. The platform also provides a full audit trail of any changes made to your contracts during their entire lifecycle in accordance with regulatory compliance obligations.
Track and Record
SoftCo Contract Compliance tracks and records any invoices not received, relating to agreed contracts, ensuring your accounts payable team are aware of any impending invoices that can be factored into accruals reporting.
SoftCo’s advanced contract management dashboards provide a range of intuitive reports including active contracts by age, active contracts by approver and active contracts by vendor.
SoftCo Contract Compliance sets alerts for contracts expiring and contracts due for renewal, ensuring you never lose track of your contracts or suffer unexpected auto-renewals.
