Apttus Contract Lifecycle Management for Pharmaceuticals

Outpace The Competition With Reduced Risks and Costs

Apttus Solution

Drive Perfect Orders, From Plan to Provision

Performance-based contracts are the mechanism that pharmaceutical companies use to drive and measure growth across suppliers, distributors, hospitals, pharmacies, and payers. But without an integrated contract lifecycle management process, Sales sees reduced contracting speed and efficiency, while R&D and Procurement teams struggle to effectively source clinical trial vendors and ensure compliance. Apttus brings the entire contract lifecycle to one platform, ensuring the entire ecosystem — including external teams and partners — have full visibility and control over the entire lifecycle of critical projects and relationships.

Apttus Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) for Pharmaceuticals

Administration and Drafting

Draft and manage contracts on your own paper — or third-party paper — more effectively with automated, dynamic templates and playbooks.

 

Drive speed and accuracy across the entire contract generation process with self-service portals that enable controlled — yet timely — contract creation.

Negotiation

Speed the negotiation process with intelligent clause recommendations, automatic redlining in Microsoft Word, price checks, and intelligent proposal and tender management

Approval and Signature

Empowered with compliance. Help teams run faster and close deals from anywhere with intelligent approvals and workflows and integration to e-Signature. Improve collaboration through Microsoft Word, CRM, Slack, mobile, and Google, while maintaining compliance with a central, secure repository.

Execution

Manage contract obligations, pricing eligibility, rebates, and budgets throughout the duration of the contract lifecycle. Advanced search and a centralized repository makes it easy to find agreements for audits, amendments, or disputes.
