WHY DID ONEADVENT COME TO US?

OneAdvent has built a network of trusted, and proven, suppliers that they work with and promote to their start-ups, including our team at Gather. Read about our previous work with AIM here.

As an MGA platform, OneAdvent advocates for multiple external organisations and holds a variety of time-sensitive agreements. Originally, they were storing all their contracts on a drive that lacked security and made contract renewal a time-consuming, and complicated, process for their team.

They needed a solution that stored and centralised all their agreements with automated reminders for renewal dates.

WHAT DID WE DO?

Initially, we worked closely with OneAdvent to outline the scope of their project. Their software system had to provide a simple interface for entering and viewing OneAdvent's contractual records with an emphasis on ease of use.

We began developing Agreements Manager, a bespoke application with a central location to easily view the full list of contracts and highlight any that require attention. This also included a search function with various filters for quickly refining the results.

Our Values

  • At Gather

    Our values guide our decision-making and underpin our culture. They inspire the solutions we produce, the services we provide and the people we employ.

  • Positivity

    We’re passionate about what we do, and pride ourselves on knowing our market inside out. We bring a can-do attitude and an open mind to every project.

  • Humility

    We’re committed to continual improvement. That means admitting to our mistakes, learning from our experiences and taking the time to appreciate one other.

  • Responsibility

    We’re accountable for our actions and focused on finding solutions. Whatever the challenge, we’ll tackle it head on.

  • Integrity

    ​We mean what we say, and say what we mean. Straight talking and straightforward, we keep things simple so we can focus on the job in hand.

Inputting information was condensed into simplified dropdown fields, enabling their team to swiftly choose from a list of options. With editable areas to add manual notes and attachments, it is straightforward to update existing records and remove invalidated information. Everything is timestamped with the username, making all transactions easily accessible for OneAdvent's team.

We set up prompts to automatically remind OneAdvent's team of any lapsing contracts and upcoming agreement dates. With a selection of choices for setting reminders, their renewal processes retained versatility and gave OneAdvent increased control over individual agreements.

Our Agreements Manager application vastly reduced their administrative processes and quickly streamlined their contract renewal procedures. As customised software, it has flexibility for OneAdvent's inevitable, and exciting, future growth.

We've developed a great partnership with the team at Gather. Everyone was professional, hard-working and friendly. The bespoke software provided has saved us a lot of time and energy by centralising our contract management procedures. With its customisable features, our Agreements Manager has scope for growth and flexibility in the future.
