Sales contracts come in all styles, for this reason many companies cannot find a box software to meet their needs. In addition, they may have an accounting package, such as QuickBooks, where the cost of licensing multiple people to use doesn't justify the expense. Often the alternative is a process involving either a Microsoft Word or Excel document.
This is exactly where Miller's Spraying found themselves. The difficulty in producing contracts in a consistent, quick manner. With the addition of Microsoft SharePoint across the corporation, Miller's Turf now had access to a central repository for their client information, inventory, and pricing. Endless Mountain Solutions was able to work with Miller's Turf to set up the proper SharePoint relationships to keep their valuable data usable. We were then able to connect all of this data to their Excel based contract, making the contract information always up to date with the latest information on SharePoint.
This use of data connected contracts prevented wasted time in looking up the latest pricing. It also opened contract preparation up to multiple team members due to the ease of use and the disseminated knowledge made available through SharePoint. Because of the integrated data connections, client and product information is able to be selected from drop downs ensuring content is entered in a proper manner. Because something can always come up, Endless Mountain Solutions designed the contract template to allow for client overrides. We fully realize that, in small business, the worst contract is the one you cannot edit. Endless Mountain Solutions is proud to have worked with Miller's Turf in producing this effective contract preparation solution.
