MAPAL is an innovative global manufacturing company, operating in over 20 countries on every continent of the planet. As a manufacturer working with many suppliers, partners, and customers, MAPAL deals with a huge number of contracts as a normal course of business. Considering how much is riding on these agreements, it is no surprise that mastering contract management was a high priority for the company.
Like most companies, MAPAL relies heavily on email for much of its contract negotiation processes. Since emails are typically locked in individuals’ mailboxes and out of reach of colleagues who need them, MAPAL designated SharePoint as a central repository for important contract-related emails (and documents). But getting workers to upload emails and documents to SharePoint and classify them correctly so they could be found, was a challenge.
So, MAPAL turned to harmon.ie for help. Now, with harmon.ie, workers find it easy to follow corporate policy for handling emails and documents, by keeping contract-based information in the right place. harmon.ie allows everyone in the organization to be 'on the same page.' For example, when workers look for a vendor contract in SharePoint, they also have immediate access to a comprehensive history of related email interactions with the same vendor. That saves lots of time and prevents costly errors.
