How to Select Contract Software
Contract software selection can be time consuming however when measuring the cost benefit after having implemented the right contract software for your business makes the entire process worth while. Starting with a contract software requirements document that lists required and optional features, must have features and optional features, can help narrow down the vendor selection process. Understanding contract workflow needs is a key part of this requirements gathering process. When assessing contract software workflow requirements, it helps to involve multiple departments involved in contract administration. These departments can include finance, legal, human resources, sales, and customer service. As more contracts are in circulation it becomes increasingly difficult to track contract expire dates, contract documents, and responsible parties for contract review, approval, and follow up. For many companies this process is done manually, via email and fax and is very time consuming. Additional time and unnecessary contract management steps can result in inaccuracies or omitted contract action items. This often leads to an increase in contract liabilities and additional required oversight. The contract software selection process may not at first seem like a necessary part of reviewing and selecting the right contract software however this ultimately leads to assurance that your business invests in the best-fit software that meets your requirements.
Contract Software Customization & Service
Part of the contract software selection process should also cover how end-user and contract administration training will be accounted for, both by the vendor and internally on an ongoing basis for new contract management team members or external users if such resources are to utilize the software. The contract software SLA (Service License Agreement) is a key piece to reviewing contract software vendors, what’s covered as part of the service and what levels of support are available. This includes hosting models, backups, contract software security, and of course cost structure. All businesses deal with contracts, whether small or large, and contract software requirements documents often differ by industry, size of the organization, and contract processing volume. Contract software vendors may sometimes adapt their software to meet certain for your organization that’s not included with the base package, and the costs of such modifications should also be reviewed during the contract software selection process.
Contract Software - Hosted Vs. On-Premise
IT departments have a vested interested in ensuring company data integrity is maintained and users have access to critical business resources. The debate over whether contract software should be hosted or on-premise is often a confusing question. Contract software can in fact be installed on-premise while at the same time still offer the benefits and accessibility of a web-based software. Installed software requires workstation installation, where the contract software is installed onto individual workstations. Installed contract software often has mandatory requirements such as certain operating systems and versions where web-based contract software has fewer restrictions. How upgrades are distributed to workstations is another question an IT department would be involved with, as the cost of contract software extends beyond the actual cost of the software but also includes what other technologies are required for the software to function and what level of support and maintenance is required by IT departments. Sometimes contract software hidden IT support costs overrun the actual cost of the software, which is not discovered until a purchase commitment is made for a specific software and decision makers neglected to consider how much IT support would be required to maintain and update the contract software for workstations.
Contract Software Security & User Access Control
It’s typically easier to control user access in a web-based contract software, therefore this option is ideal for companies requiring multiple users to access the system and add or review contracts. Tracking contract issues may require certain levels of customer or vendor access. Contract managers in various departments or levels in the company may require access to certain contract records as well, based on their level of authority in the company. Contract access controls would be a necessary section in the contract software requirements document, and cover both contract security as well as which users are responsible for various steps in contract approval processes.
Contract Software Versatility
The original need for contract software may come from a contract manager or department based on certain types of contracts for that given contract manager or department, such as human resources or finance & vendor management. It may well be the case that other departments within your organization share the same set of contract management problems that can be solved with the same contract software implementation. The properties of a lease agreement, rental contract, service center contract, supplier contract, and customer service contract share many similar properties. This sharing of properties can strengthen the return on investment for a contract software implementation and give people in the company a consistent and standardized method for processing contracts of all types. Other types of contracts that may share similar properties include facilities maintenance contracts, certificates of insurance, and work agreements.
If your organization has not before considered drafting a software requirements document and is in the process of selecting software, you may consider engaging a temporary 3rd party IT resource to help facilitate a software needs assessment. Such a resource with experience and expertise in this matter increases your chances of maximum benefit of the time and money invested ...<< MORE >>

Selecting a project manager for your project is like putting the fate of your company and your customer into another person's hands. Although a project manager interview and hiring process seem simple enough, project manager selection significantly impacts your organization and those your organization serves. The project manager you select must be evaluated from various multiple angles to ensure that the selected project manager is truly reliable and capable of motivating all parties managed on the project to perform equal to or greater than your expectations. A good rule of thumb is to hire a project manager that is "smarter" than you so you can depend on that project manager to handle every project management situation that comes up so you don't have to.
Although this may not seem entirely realistic, reaching for such a goal will only help ensure you wind up with a project manager that is likely to leave your project and company in a far better position than it was when you originally selected that project manager. Hiring anyone involves not only industry skills and background checks but psychology and communication are of equal importance.

covers include insurance renewal, policy billing, agent
commissions, policy premiums, and policy billing rates. Software for modules can replace cumbersome insurance policy related paperwork, faxing, and mailings. Client billing and payments for
insurance policies should be automated and electronic wherever possible, to both reduce costs for the insurance agent, which then keeps insurance policy premiums lower for clients.

Risk management software takes many different forms and may involve various features that relate to each other. Risk management software should give a business the ability to identify various aspects, or components of risk, past, present, and future. Risk management software should come with certain basic risk management features, such as costs of risk, contract management software, insurance renewal management, workplace injury tracking, and insurance claims management to name a few. Ideally, risk management software should also provide for some level of integration with other existing software, such as an accounting software, so some risk management data may pull from other data and software sources from within the company and to reduce data input time from risk management staff.
As a business changes over time, so do the risk management software needs of the company. This provides a good reason why the a risk management software must remain highly flexible, adapting to changes in risk and risk management practices within the organization. In some cases, risk management software must allow 3rd parties to access risk management data as well, such as law firms, accounting firms, auditors, vendors, and consultants to the company. By consolidating access to risk management software into one risk management software system, a business increases the level of operational efficiency and accuracy when transmitting documents to other parties. Risk management software reduces the liability of missed follow ups, lost documents, document or contract disputes, and therefore subsequent legal actions for or against the company. Good risk management software will also provide a business with a pro-active means to support a legal action against another party should a dispute occur and participants of the risk management software utilized the risk software for its intended purpose over time.<< MORE >>
Commission management software
helps businesses with sales commission tracking. A business leverage a commission management software to maximize the benefits gained from various features a
commission tracking software
has to offer. When evaluating a commission tracking software, often a business will consider their current product lines that require commission tracking.
Sometimes, a business will consider past product lines, however less frequently will a business consider anticipated product lines and for good reason that the company has not yet considered or
developed such new products.
A1 Enterprise has spent the past 2 years in product development for a new commission management software
that provides a solution for businesses that have product lines that change over time.
Many aspects of a business can change when a business introduces new product lines. These aspects may include types of people who access data, vendors, document types, commission amounts, sales
agents, wholesale product distributors, and commission splits. With the number of exceptions and overrides that can occur, for example, with commission splits when new products launch accompanied by
new sales reps, accounting and sales staff could potentially miss critical commission management steps which could lead to incorrect commission payment amounts and missed commission payments. A1
Enterprise therefore has a commission tracking software scheduled to release in 2010, thereby bringing to the marketplace new commission tracking tools for accounting staff, sales reps, and
The intention of this new commission management software is to give a business the ability to track all product specifications, customer sales invoices, lead tracking, and product sales commissions in one system. Additionally, A1 Enterprise will integrate a product management module to help a business track the budgets and costs throughout product development. By combining product development management, sales tracking, and commission management software in a single software, a business can accurately quickly run real-time reports to measure their return on investment on any given product...

As an insurance business grows, the existing insurance business software may over time become over-extended due to the volume of data stored in the insurance business software. As insurance businesses and insurance markets changes over time, insurance businesses add various insurance products, and perhaps even non insurance products such as banking products and payroll products to the product line. As the tendency for a business to diversify over time by adding new products, the need for flexibility with an insurance software becomes increasingly vital. If an insurance business expands into multiple different product lines, and the business insurance software does not have the ability to have various new products added, the insurance business will react by starting new sets of paper business files, or purchase new software to adapt new products into the insurance business.<< MORE >>

When launching a paycard program for your unbanked workers, you will have to decide how your employer will structure the bank account(s) for the program. Some employers may choose to have their employees' debit cards set up so there is a one-employee-to-one-account relationship. Others may opt for an aggregate or master bank account with sub-accounts established for each employee that are systemically accounted for individually, even though wages of all employees are essentially commingled. You should consult with your payroll card program provider on the options that they have available. Our paycard program when combined with our direct deposit payroll service offer the highest level efficiency for the company. Card holders may enroll online or automatically via another system within the company, and then may get automatically setup to receive direct deposit payments to their paycard.

Branded paycards are essentially debit cards that display a Visa or similar logo on them. They are also frequently called "signature based" because employees have the option of signing for
goods and services that they purchase with the cards in addition to using them with a Personal Identification Number (PIN). These types of cards provide the most utility for the cardholder.
Unbranded paycards, also called "PIN-based" cards, are debit cards that function only at ATMs or point-of-sale terminals through the use of Personal Identification Numbers (PINs) when the user
wishes to withdraw cash and/or purchase products and services. Although these pay cards do not display a Visa or similar logo, they are linked to the Star, Pulse, NYCE, Cirrus, and/or Plus
point-of-sale debit card networks.
Both types of paycards can be issued with or without the employee's name embossed on them. Paycards issued without an employee's name are commonly called "instant issue" paycards and can be quickly
assigned to a specific employee for immediate use. Some paycard programs provide instant issue branded payroll cards
to their employees on the date of hire. This enables the employee to
receive their first paycheck on the payroll card. ...

As a payroll professional, it is likely that you have developed professional and personal relationships with individuals working for your current payroll service provider. Some of these
companies may have their own paycard program offering that can be incorporated into the existing services that you are currently using. Service providers can be an excellent starting point to explore
the direction that you may want to go in concerning your future paycard program.
However, you should also explore other paycard program offerings in this expanding marketplace. For example, your company's funds management department may have a long-standing relationship with
one or more financial institutions. Many financial institutions also offer paycard programs. If you already have sizable deposits in a bank holding your organization's payroll and other accounts,
your bank's paycard program start-up and maintenance fees could be quite competitive.

Take the questions out of our project management software selection equation and realize a software company's performance with customer support, upgrades, and properly working features accelerate when that software company also depends on the same software the company markets. The A1 Tracker

When selecting a payroll card vendor
, there are many things to keep in mind to ensure you select the best payroll card
for your business. When considering a payroll card
for direct deposit
, you want to ensure you have the maximum participation possible from you employees, vendors, and contractors. By gaining maximum participation from those your business pays, your business will recognize cost savings from printing and distributing paper checks.
The benefit of using a direct deposit payroll card
should benefit your business and your employees equally. Many companies use a payroll card provided by their payroll service provider, however the payroll card is provided as an optional form of payment and because employees have little benefit in using the payroll card they opt instead to receive paper checks. The reason for this is simple. Payroll cards have been presented as an optional payment method for employees however the benefits to the employee in choosing to receive payroll on a payroll card have been neglected. The payroll card in many cases has certain limitations that prevent the employee from accessing their cash in a cost effective manner, or the payroll card has so few benefits that the payroll card is unattractive to the employee. Some payroll cards for example may only be used for cash withdraw which incurs an ATM withdraw fee and are unable to be used as a VISA purchasing card. Many payroll cards do not offer online or telephone banking, and therefore have limited means for allowing employees to manage finances. ...<< MORE >>

To select the best service to wire money over the internet and for internet wire fund transfer there are a number of things to look out for that should shape your decision. The first and foremost is the base fees for the internet direct deposit
and wire funds transfer
fees. Many internet direct deposit wire funds services charge a percentage-base fee for the amount of the internet wire funds direct deposit. On top of that percentage fee, there is an additional wire funds transfer fee for currency exchange, which is calculated off a percentage of the direct deposit wire transfer amount. This means the more the person transfers, the more either the sending party or the person receiving the direct deposit funds will pay in transfer fees.
An additional issue that comes up is the limit as to how much one can transfer using an internet direct deposit and wire funds transfer service. Some online direct deposit wire fund transfer services we have evaluated have a limit of $1,200 per day in internet wire fund transfers and direct deposits allowed. Any amount beyond this limit are rejected until the following day. Where the other internet wire fund transfer services limit you in your allowable amount of wire transfer funds, our internet direct deposit funds transfer card has a limit that exceeds every competitor. ...<< MORE >>

In order for a company to provide Green Business Services
to other companies, it must first maximize it's own operational costs and operational efficiency. A strong green business operating model has many facets including use of productive time, optimizing human resource utilization, optimizing usage of office supplies, and business equipment among other things.
My objective with A1 Enterprise has always been and still is to evolve the company into the highest and most efficient operational model possible and to utilize time and money in a manner that yields the greatest results with the lowest operating cost without sacrificing quality or the ability to collaborate. In fact, I have through the years only sought ways to improve team collaboration while researching and testing new means of a Green Business operation.
I embarked on a conceptual idea for A1 Enterprise back in 2001, when I setup a garage-network with a 384k DSL circuit to feed our programmers with the necessary business collaboration software and network tools to provide our business software products and business services. The reduced overhead costs of hosting all network services and our network infrastructure in a garage kept our billing rates lower than that of our competition and enabled me to reinvest in other facets of A1 Enterprise, such as our own Saas (Software-as-a-Service) signature product, A1 Tracker.
