New Workbench to Simplify Revenue Contract Management

Easy access to a wide variety of contract elements is essential when trying to handle the complexities inherent in managing revenue contracts. A contract administrator needs to keep a watchful eye on contract terms, billing plans, revenue recognition plans, project progress, team members, limits, withholdings, budgets, lots and lots of dates, and numerous other details in order to ensure good governance of an organization’s revenue. To ease the burden of the weary contract administrator, we recently added the Contracts Workbench to the PeopleSoft Contracts application in the PeopleSoft ESA 9.1 Bundle #16.

Designed based on requirements from several industries, the Contracts Workbench acts as a window into information from the PeopleSoft Contracts, Grants, and Project Costing applications. The data users see is dependent on which applications are installed, meaning that an organization can take advantage of the Contracts Workbench even if it is not using all three of the applications. Additionally, business analysts and users can configure sections of the Contracts Workbench to display only the award, contract, and project information relevant to the way their organization does business. Contract administrators and accountants can view and access information to identify instantly the need for adjustments, and they can quickly update contract lines, projects, bill plans, and so on.

Because it provides a great deal of contextual information, the Contracts Workbench can be a powerful tool for administrators and accountants in their quest to make more informed decisions when working a contract. With the context and the configurable aggregation of data offered by the Contracts Workbench, users can reduce the time they spend navigating software and comparing data and increase the time they dedicate to preventing revenue leakage, negotiating with customers, and performing other activities that protect and grow the all-important revenue stream.
