February DetermiNews: A Review of the Month in Source to Pay and Contract Management

If February DetermiNews could be summed up in one word, it would be “contracts.” This month, starting with our IACCM webinar on January 31, looked at contracts and how to best manage them with technology, internal processes and C-Suite level strategic focus. Contracts represent relationships, revenue and risk to every organization. Making sure yours maximize the first two and mitigate the third is what Determine does for a growing number of leading companies across industry verticals.
