7 Sins of Spreadsheets for Contract Management Professionals
In companies everywhere, contract
management professionals are using
spreadsheets to do their work.
In some instances, spreadsheets
can provide a useful way to
However, spreadsheets have a
number of limitations−and are
not the best choice for
Using spreadsheets for contract
management just isn’t cutting it.
But ﬁnding a simple and aﬀordable
solution is tough.

professionals like you overcome
this challenge and free you to do

Does any of the following sound familiar?
If so, you’re not alone.
Spreadsheets are time-consuming
to create, format, and maintain.
Spreadsheets are created manually,
so somebody has to invest the time
to do so. This can take hours, not to
mention the time spent updating
information when changes occur.
Spreadsheets are error-prone.
Because spreadsheets are created
manually, they are bound to contain
errors in data. Contract management
software, on the other hand, has
built-in tools to check data
When a company grows, so does its
contracts. This can make spreadsheets
especially cumbersome if they contain
hundreds or even thousands of lines
Spreadsheets do not present
a complete picture.
Spreadsheets only contain a summary
of contract data. If you need to
reference the original
contract−you guessed it−
you need to go ﬁnd it
Spreadsheets are often saved in multiple
locations rather than a central repository.
Many people will need to access
spreadsheet data. This makes it likely
that multiple copies are stored in
various places, leading to mistakes,
redundant actions, and wasted time.
Limiting the permissions
on a spreadsheet is diﬃcult.
Spreadsheets don’t contain
diﬀerent levels of viewing
permissions. If somebody
can see one row of data
on the spreadsheet, they can see
all rows of data. This can be a
problem if conﬁdentiality
is a concern.
Spreadsheets are vulnerable and
may be lost, stolen, or compromised.
Spreadsheets are often saved on
hard drives, and we all know that
computers crash and ﬁles get lost.
Spreadsheets can also disappear
with employees or inadvertently
end up in the wrong
all contract data.
Fortunately, there’s a better way!
