Open Windows CONTRACTS ensures all contract information and associated documentation is held centrally and is easily accessible. Electronic alerts enable our managers and staff to be automatically notified of upcoming contract insurance and/or license expiry in advance so relevant action can be taken. The information is kept up to date and contract renewals are not overlooked.
We chose Open Windows CONTRACTS not only for the complete solution approach, but also for their willingness to customise the product in accordance with the departments business needs and the ability to integrate with our finance and document management software
