Why Integrate with Oracle Enterprise Contracts?
Oracle Enterprise Contracts is a comprehensive offering that standardizes corporate contract policies, improves internal controls, and enforces compliance with all contractual obligations and regulatory requirements. It provides a complete solution for managing sales, procurement, and other contracts.
The new addition to Oracle Enterprise Contracts, Collaborate on Contract Negotiations, integrates Oracle Content Management (OCM) functionalities, so you (e.g., internal and external stakeholders) can take advantages of the features in both applications to smooth the contract negotiation process. For instance, you can share contracts for review and revision, collaborate and edit contracts in Microsoft Word from the OCM UI. Additionally, leveraging OCM as a cloud-based content management system streamlines content creation tasks, accelerates team collaboration, promotes content reuse from a single source (the OCM repository), and improves customer and employee engagement.
