Electronic contract records –
Creating structure and transparency for all your contract management needs

The Doxis4 electronic record brings order, structure and transparency into your contract management. This innovative solution enables you to archive, search and monitor all contract documents in an audit-proof manner.

Contract records contain all contract information (no matter the format) and help you to manage data throughout the entire contract life cycle.

Features & strengths — contract management software Doxis4

  • One solution for all contracts

    You now only need a single solution to help you manage all contracts and agreements within your company, e.g. loan agreements, framework agreements, customer and supplier agreements, rental, tenancy and leasing contracts, company agreements, corporate agreements, insurance policies, employment contracts, licenses and related maintenance agreements.

  • Easily accessible

    No matter where you are working, you can open any contract using contract metadata. The full-text search function also enables you to search through document contents and metadata. Access to contract records and documents is secured through user authorization. When you are out of the office, you can use offline records or the web-based and mobile clients to access contract documents.

  • Data protection and security

    Doxis4's authorization concept ensures that your data is always secure and prevents unauthorized individuals from accessing your contracts. Doxis4 contract management functions include the audit trail feature which logs every instance of access and modification to contract documents. Documents can be stored in audit-proof formats such as TIFF, PDF and PDF/A. Additional SoftWORM protection also prevents contract documents from being deleted, either intentionally or inadvertently.

  • Deadline and reminder management

    Doxis4 includes a deadline and reminder management function which automatically monitors all contract documents and reminds employees of upcoming deadlines and appointments. If the employee fails to react to these reminders, other people involved in the process are also informed of the deadline (escalation function).

  • Integration

    Doxis4 contract management can be integrated into Microsoft Office, ERP, CRM, facility management systems and other software relevant for contract work. You also have the option of automatically transferring all master and variable contract data from these applications. If integrated into Microsoft, contract documents can be transferred to Doxis4 contract management as soon as the document is created. This gives you several options, from template management to automated version management.
