Each contract includes comprehensive information about job details such as job title, job level and job location etc. This contract can then be emailed to the candidate or employee via a 'mail merge' functionality thereby ensuring both the company terms and conditions and the employees uniques contract terms and sent.  "Finalised' contract documents are stored for future reference.
