The Connected Contract: The Future of Contract Management & eSignature

By Eric Prugh on Jun 7, 2017 11:45:43 AM

This article was originally published on Medium.

A couple of weeks ago, we unveiled a completely new and unique solution to the world called the Contract Execution Platform. We got an amazing response—we also had great attendance on our webinar focused on providing 3 ways businesses like Mopro, CDW, and SwervePay are sending automated, frictionless contracts, and how you can reimagine the contract experience within your business. That tells me one thing: There’s an appetite for a better way to execute contracts. 

But what does a Contract Execution Platform do? We’re going to be writing a blog series providing you with some thoughtful posts around how to re-envision your business relationships to drive faster, more seamless experiences at every level. My goal is to get you thinking about your roadmap internally to help reduce your people-driven processes and to use the power of technology to simplify. A contract should be a living, breathing, connected cross-section of data that drives action in your business—it shouldn’t weigh you down with overhead or cost like what you typically see in contract management.

Think this is a sweet workflow that might fit your business? Let's chat.

3 apps for SaaS that help you operate like an IndyCar Pit Crew

By Eric Prugh on May 27, 2016 12:15:08 PM

It's such an exciting time here in Indy in preparation for the Indy 500! When I think of the 500, I go deeper than all the drivers. There's SO MUCH that goes into making those cars fast enough to win on race day—the technology, the crews, the mechanics, the sponsors. That's why I wanted to share my own recommendations for how you can collaborate with employees, customers, and more better within your own business.

How much time per day do you spend replying to internal email? Or rely on email to manage internal processes? Or hate your customer support system? Here at PactSafe, we've been able to establish some awesome productivity & collaboration practices from Day 1. Really, I'd like to think of our team as efficient as one of Roger Penske's legendary Pit Crews. There are a lot of apps that have enabled the perfect level of collaboration to help us do our jobs as efficiently as possible. To the point where PactSafe has eliminated internal email. We reserve email exclusively for customer, investor, and partner communications. These are the apps I'd recommend to any business looking to up the collaboration game (while also upping the productivity game).

<PECK PECK PECK PECK PECK PECK> as you smash away at the Delete or Backspace button on your keyboard. There has to be a better way than deleting one letter at a time when you want to revise a sentence or delete a line of text. Fear not! Today's Mac shortcut (also can be done on a PC!) will help you delete entire words or lines of text purely with your mind... Or... a really cool keyboard shortcut. Let's dive in!
