Contracts  

Contracts are crucial to every business, which is why having an end-to-end contract management solution helps improve customer and user experiences, increases visibility into the contract process, and speeds up sales cycle times. We’ve made some changes and improvements across our CLM solutions to continue to support every business’s contract management needs.  

Conga Contracts for Salesforce  

  • Speed up contract cycle times by easily swapping alternate clauses within an agreement with Conga’s online user interface, Online Contract Collaboration (OCC).
