How to simplify Contract Management through Pact in 2024

Any contract that an organization issues, has two major components to take care of- One is tracking the progress of the contract and other is ensuring value for money. Right? How about an app that takes care of all the tracking and costing part? Manual inaccuracy in money management is humane, but not something that every organization would be able to bear. Similarly, tracking the progress of your contract, be it small scale or large scale- is not an easy task. That is where Contract Management Apps or integrations like Pact come to rescue.

Moreover, if you are already an organization that uses project management apps like Jira by Atlassian, the ‘Pact’ by Optimizory is already well integrated there.

So, let's read more about simplifying contract management via an App integrated with Jira!

What is Contract Management?

Contract management is essentially the comprehensive, systematic approach to handling all stages of an agreement, from its creation to its termination. It encompasses various activities and functions, ensuring smooth execution and maximum benefit for all parties involved.


What are the key stages of Contract Management?

Ever signed a contract and then wondered, "Wait, what happens now?" Or perhaps you've witnessed the chaos of misplaced agreements and missed deadlines. It's most likely to be the latter if you are an organization already involved in a lot of multi party contracts.

So firstly, Let's look into the key stages that turn a blank page into a binding promise that gets executed, keeping everyone on track and happy!


  1. Formation: Drafting, negotiating, and finalizing the contract terms and conditions.
  2. Execution: Managing the fulfillment of obligations outlined in the contract by both parties.
  3. Monitoring: Tracking performance, ensuring compliance, and identifying potential risks or issues.
  4. Amendment: Addressing any changes or modifications needed during the contract's lifespan.
  5. Renewal or Termination: Deciding on contract extension or closure upon its expiry.

These are the key stages of any contract that gets signed in the first place. However, don't you think we are missing out on another important intricacy here? It's money management!

What does a contract management App do?


A contract management app, also known as Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) software, is an app that helps businesses/ organizations efficiently handle different aspects of their contracts, from creation and negotiation to execution and ongoing management.

Here's what a contract management app typically does:

  • Creation: Helps draft contracts using templates, automate clauses, and collaborate with different stakeholders.
  • Negotiation: Facilitates secure online negotiations, tracks changes, and helps reach agreements faster.
  • Approval: Sets up automated workflows for routing contracts for internal approvals, ensuring adherence to compliance regulations.
  • Execution: Enables e-signatures for faster contract finalization and eliminates the need for printing and physical signatures.
  • Performance and Risk Management: Tracks key obligations, detects potential issues, and sends alerts for deadlines and renewals.
  • Reporting and Analytics: Provides insights into contract data, identifies trends, and helps optimize the contracting process.
