Buy-side contracts help ensure that all business users have the supplies and materials needed to be successful in their respective roles.

Contraxx lets organizations monitor these details throughout the contract life cycle, ensuring vendor compliance and increasingprofitability.

The automated workflow processes ensure that appropriate approvals are identified and, if appropriate, granted for use of any nonstandard contract terms that a purchasing professional may include in a contract.
