A contract database is only useful if it’s tailored.

It needs to conform to your business, your processes, your contracts, and the data you care about inside them.

If your contract database is tailored, then you need to keep track of how and why it is set up the way it is.

This is what a blueprint is for. It captures and explains the unique elements of your database. This makes ongoing management and handover a breeze.

So make sure whoever sets up your contract database also creates a blueprint alongside it.
