November 12, 2010 – Dolphin Software has launched the latest version of its contract management software, Dolphin Contract Manager 2.0 for Microsoft SharePoint. This new version enables legacy contracts to be captured and integrated into the current contract management system and also makes contract management more ‘plug and play’ for large organizations.

RealWire brought this news to our attention in their article, “Announcing Dolphin Contract Manager 2.0 for Microsoft SharePoint.” By making contracts easier to capture, handle and track, Dolphin Contract Manager helps organizations reduce unnecessary time and cost wastage. Building on existing features, Dolphin has a range of new features designed to automate, simplify and more effectively manage the entire contract process. One of those features include an expanded contract metadata library, which they define as a comprehensive and classified library of ready-to-use, commonly-used contract milestone metadata.

Sounds an awful lot like a taxonomy to me. Building taxonomies that are solid and comprehensive takes professionals with experience in the industry. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies that can help clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
