Alegent Health Leverages Selectica's Contract Performance Management to Gain Visibility and Control of Contract Processes

Selectica Ensures Compliance by Streamlining the Creation, Storage, Management and Analysis of Contracts Throughout the Entire L

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Selectica , a leading provider of configuration, sales execution and contract management applications, today announced the addition of Alegent Health to the growing roster of customers using its on-demand Contract Performance Management solution. Alegent Health is the largest healthcare system in Nebraska and southwestern Iowa. With nine acute care hospitals, more than 100 service sites and a staff of over 1,200 physicians and roughly 8,400 employees, Alegent needed Selectica's solution to gain better visibility and control of the thousands of contracts that govern key strategic relationships, including equipment lease agreements and various types of supplier contracts.

"Prior to purchasing Selectica's contract management solution, we had to manually manage nearly 7,000 documents across the various departments, which is not only time-consuming but it makes it extremely difficult to consistently monitor contract compliance," said Angie Peters, manager of legal compliance for Alegent Health. "With Contract Performance Management by Selectica, we get a holistic view of all contracts throughout their lifecycle so we are able to systematically track, review and analyze compliance to ensure maximum operational and financial performance and mitigate risk."

Contract Performance Management

Selectica's Contract Performance Management is the industry's most comprehensive on-demand solution for managing the cost, compliance and performance of complex buy- and sell-side agreements. The robust software ensures compliance by automating and streamlining the creation, storage, management, and analysis of contracts -- from initial contract request and negotiation to on-going compliance and performance management. By automating many of the manual, disparate processes traditionally associated with contracts, Selectica helps companies:

* gain visibility and control of their commitments; * eliminate expired, redundant and poorly structured agreements; * track key milestones, deliverables and renewal events; * ensure accurate financial reconciliation and compliance; * manage collaboration and approvals across entire contract lifecycle; and * enforce use of standard processes and terms.

"As the volume and complexity of contracts continues to accelerate, optimizing contract performance has become a key strategic initiative in organizations like Alegent Health who recognize the bottom-line benefits of effectively managing contracts throughout their lifecycle," said James Dias, vice president of marketing and sales at Selectica. "By offering Contract Performance Management on-demand, our solution is quickly deployed and easily maintained, while delivering a rapid time-to-value that's second to none."
