Key Capabilities of the Supplier Contract Management Platform

Here’s a closer look at the main features of Workday’s connected Contract Management solution:


With pre-built integrations between Workday’s Contract Management solution and other Workday and non-Workday systems, such as Workday Financial Management, DocuSign, and Microsoft 365, users can streamline critical contract management processes and improve operational efficiency.


The Contract Management solution offers a centralized repository for all contract data and related documentation, enabling organizations to establish a single source of truth and maintain data consistency across the entire enterprise.


Automated notifications and workflows allow key stakeholders to ensure correct contract creation, transfer, and approval processes and receive real-time notifications whenever a contract is received, renewed, or terminated.

Clause Management

By centralizing and simplifying clause management processes, Workday’s Contract Management solution enables better data consistency, streamlined process efficiency, and reduced errors.

Advanced Search

With Workday AI semantic search capabilities, users can quickly and easily locate contracts and related documentation and reduce the risk associated with unauthorized access to contract data.

Contract Templates

Users can leverage templatized contract features to search contract obligations and agreements with a similar template to avoid repetition and improve efficiency when creating new contracts.


By consolidating data from executed contracts, purchase orders, and invoices in a unified platform, users can improve collaboration across critical Workday product suites, such as Workday Supplier Contract Management, Workday Financial Management, Workday Procurement, and more.

Contract Hierarchy

Workday’s Contract Management tool empowers users to create parent-child relationships, which improves the visualization of contract hierarchies within each supplier source.
