NEC contract timeframes must be followed, and this is where the “Outstanding Task” functionality comes into its own. Users can rapidly prioritise activities across one (project) or all (programme or portfolios) by viewing and executing all of their pending, upcoming, and due tasks.
Regardless of the level you are managing your contracts at a it is simple to store and monitor information with pre-configured NEC-compliant contract forms. A fully configurable project dashboard, and a Mobile App for when you are in the field.
With graphical representation of the core contract metrics, the Contract Dashboard (above) provides a quick snapshot of all the crucial contract summary data, including contract price and dates.
All contract communication pro-formas are automatically work-flowed to the appropriate parties and come pre-configured with the correct fields and “Times to Respond.” The HPS NEC solution has advanced communication tracking functionality that enables customers to create a “spider” diagram shown below.
This shows a visual audit trail that demonstrates the interconnections between all contract conversations. This makes it possible for users to identify the relationships between a series of contract modification events rapidly. This feature is especially helpful in adjudication events as it automates an otherwise labor-intensive administrative burden.
