The contract approval process and the growth of automation

As an integral part of a company’s activity, the contract approval process when poorly managed leads to great losses in profit, credibility, and reliability.

Even if you feel that your current process has been and is successful, the situation can change and drastically affect your business.

Automation is taking hold of the future and along with it the way you’re used to working with vendors. Instead of filling out papers or looking for the right document, you can spend that valuable time on more important tasks; looking for a more suitable supplier or researching the market. In short, mastering the automation process is something that every business needs to do soon. As you continue to read, you’ll learn all about business process automation (BPA) and how it helps improve contract management.

Where to learn more about contract workflow automation

Before you start transforming workflows, dot your i’s and cross your t’s: Automation is an advanced tool for your business that needs proper implementation. Therefore, to get the most out of it, we advise you to take and complete the airSlate Academy’s Vendor Contract Approval course.

The course is focused on teaching you how to reduce the costs and time it takes to complete your procurement process’s lifecycle, eliminate bottlenecks in the contract workflow and prevent errors associated with data entry. Expanding your knowledge with free online courses can save you a lot of headache connected to lost documents, invoice fraud, and much more. Master new solutions like no-code robotic process automation (RPA), e-signature and document generation.

Anyone interested in understanding every step of a fully automated contract approval Flow should sign up and take the course. Get everything you need to know from setting up Bots to inviting participants to collaborate.

What can you get from the Academy?

Unlike other training courses, the academy combines theoretical and practical knowledge. Creating an airSlate account grants you full access to necessary documents, exporting tools, and the ability to negotiate with Flow participants in real time.

The Academy introduces you to all airSlate’s features and teaches you how to properly implement them into your working processes. You’ll learn how to stay up-to-date with changes in your workflow by setting up automated email notifications: give the tedious work to Bots and eliminate manual reminding. Moreover, the course goes over how to integrate the process into any third-party system, e.g., CRM/ERP, without writing a single line of code and how to generate a document by clicking one button.

The course includes a short quiz to reinforce the knowledge you picked up and evaluate your performance. Take the course as many times as you need to fully understand it. Spending at least 30 minutes a day completing this course will get you your certificate in just one week. Transform Vendor Contract Approvals into a flawless procurement process.

How does airSlate define a flawless contract management workflow?

Take a look below and get clear insight into what a smooth working process looks like with airSlate automation in full deployment.

  • A new vendor fills out a registration form.
  • The data is automatically saved in the CRM and ERP systems.
  • The procurement manager then sends the pre-filled contract with the vendor’s data from the registration form to the vendor for signing.
  • Then both parties negotiate in real time right in the document Slate.
  • Once there’s an agreement the vendor e-signs.
  • The Chief Operation Officer receives an email notification that all stages have been completed and that they need to e-sign as well.
  • After payment has been received and the payment process from has been completed everything including the contract are automatically stored in the CRM.

airSlate makes collaborating with suppliers straightforward for everyone. If set up correctly, the process runs like clockwork. With great workflow automation software, you get a seamless contract approval process.

After completing the course, you’ll receive a certificate and, most importantly, skills on how to turn the contract approval process into a multi-level, accurate and reliable automation workflow. If you’re interested in helping your current team innovate or even interested in future career perspectives in automation architecture, enroll for free.
