Enhancing Contract Management Feature VENDORLY'S NEW FEATURE WILL PRO- VIDE INSIGHTS INTO CONTRACT TERMS, PERFORMANCE, AND SPEND ANALYSIS. V endorly, a vendor oversight platform for financial institu- tions, announced the launch of its Contract Management feature to enhance insights into contract terms, performance, and spend analysis within the vendor man- agement solution. Contract Management is available as a new feature for existing customers using the Vendorly platform, or as an independent software-as-a-service (SaaS) offering. In a Vendorly survey conducted ear- lier this year, 44 percent of banking and mortgage professionals surveyed said their organizations were responsible for man- aging at least 100 vendors. When asked how often their organizations monitor and assess vendor performance, 30 percent of respondents said annually. With the addi- tion of the Contract Management feature, Vendorly makes it easier to gain valuable insights into contract terms, performance, and spend analysis of third-party ven- dors. Financial institutions can proactively manage key metadata within a contract and create action date triggers to automate reminders to help avoid missing renewal and other relevant dates and terms. "Contract management is an essential component of a robust third-party risk management program (TPRM) because many controls and best practices stem from the contract language," said Jim Vaca, SVP of Vendorly. "As TPRM gains more focus from the C-suite, it is important to offer insight into the vendor contracts to help mitigate contractual and compliance risks by ensuring that relevant contract clauses, such as indemnifications, performance lev- els, and assignment terms, are in place and managed appropriately. Having a single- vendor contract repository with reporting functionality will enable insight into not only vendor spend but also the contract terms and associated requirements."
