Reading-based Dolphin Software has launched its new Dolphin Contract Manager for SharePoint system – and secured its first win: the Northland Ontario Transport Commission. Dolphin Software also announced the signing of five partners across the US, UK and Ireland: Gimmal Group, Mindlance, ICS Solutions, Triad Group and Spanish Point Technologies.  

“Using technology to automate and control the contract lifecycle management process is relatively new, but has huge benefits for organisations. Contract management software creates a single repository where everything associated with contracts, from cradle to grave, can be tracked,” says Ronan Lavelle*, Dolphin Software CEO. “Companies that have standardised on the Microsoft SharePoint platform can improve their return on investment, and for partners, contract management software is a rich new seam of revenue.”

* Ronan Lavelle, who formed Dolphin Software earlier this year, previously held senior roles at Open Text and Hummingbird. The contract lifecycle management market is estimated to be growing at 23% per year. www.dolphin-software.com
