Ecteon Recognized in Gartner’s “Market Guide for Contract Life Cycle Management”

NASHVILLE – February 28, 2019 – Ecteon, an industry-leading contract management software company, has been recognized along with 19 other companies in Gartner’s December 2018 “Market Guide for Contract Life Cycle Management.”

As mentioned in Gartner’s report, “Contract life cycle management applications digitize and automate the contracting process to improve the speed, efficiency, visibility and compliance of legal-document management across an organization. This report will help application leaders responsible for CLM shortlist suitable vendors.”

Richard Eckerstrom, CEO of Ecteon, says, “Enterprise organizations continue to be challenged with finding the best CLM solution provider for their contract management needs. By forming a collaborative partnership with our clients and customizing our platform to meet the specific requirements of all departments within their enterprise-wide company, we are able to become the best solution for their contract lifecycle needs. In fact, many of our enterprise-level clients are able to completely re-engineer their contracting processes with our deployments.”

Just such an impact can be seen in Ecteon’s work with Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KP). According to Jessica John, contracts and benefits administration manager, “Ecteon came to understand how our requirements were fundamentally different, and instead of pigeonholing us in a slightly modified workaround configuration (as might have been the case with other software developers), they instead carefully configured the way Contraxx operates in order for it to meet our process needs and still be efficient.”

Thanks to this collaborative innovation, Ecteon’s Contraxx solution system was able to reduce document change management time substantially from weeks to days and greatly simplify KP’s highly complex, multi-state regulatory filing processes for Group Plan documents. Read More.

Gartner’s report appeared after several recently highlighted successes for Ecteon, including: the onboarding of new clients; the hiring of additional consultants with subject matter expertise; and, at the end of 2018, their inclusion in CIOReview’s “20 Most Promising Enterprise Contract Management Solution Providers.” Read Article.
