May 18, 2016 – 12:33 PM | No Comment

Straightedge has lots of new and exciting features many of which are in response to requests from our users ‘it would be really great if I could…….’.  If you want full details of the changes please let us know.

We have enhanced supplier management, contract management and financial control processes so you can track actions and the status of each as well as checking actions which relate to specific contracts.  We have simplified the dashboard so you can more easily see the state of your expiring and renewing commitments.  An additional feature is the ability to report on contracts by type (you can specify the type) so that you can see the status and costs of contracts in the payment pipeline.  Overall, we can now produce a customized landing page that shows the risk and state of your key commitments including software, compliance, maintenance and all the contracts in whatever category.   If you want a demo or more info, again please call or email us.
