Find the money hiding in your contracts
Contracting processes have been a major pain point in the commodity and freight markets for a long time and, according to a recent survey, 36% of respondents identify non-standard, unfavourable, or risky clauses scattered across many contracts as the risk most likely to cause financial loss, while 28% said that missed deadlines, obligations or opportunities that are negotiated into the contract pose such risks. The survey is part of Chinsay’s latest whitepaper “Find the money (and data) hiding in your contracts”, which follows its webinar in collaboration with Commodities People.
The whitepaper delves into the most common contracting pitfalls in the markets that erode a company’s profits and shares insights from C-level panellists from top commodity companies such as Cargill and OMV. The paper offers an overview for commodity and freight markets participants on why digitalisation is important and how optimising and standardising contracting processes results in enormous benefits to the whole organisation.
Aitana Conca, Director EMEA at Chinsay, said: “We are very pleased to share our knowledge gathered over years of hands-on expertise and our panellists’ views in this whitepaper to better help our community bring efficiency into their organisations, with the survey findings underscoring and confirming our many years’ experience. Contracts hold real value, but with traditional practices, risk management is reactive rather than proactive, leading to monetary losses. We have talked about the need for embracing automation in this space for a while, but the past two years have showed companies the real urgency of implementing this change. This is why we are here to help guide commodity and freight companies, whether they are already on this journey or just starting out.”
