Contract Request

  • Organizations typically have a large variety of contracts which makes it difficult for employees to be consistent when requesting contracts. They may struggle with a lack of a formal request processes and request contracts via word of mouth, email, or by phone.

Having a formal request process in place eliminates the chance for requests to fall through the cracks.

Authoring- Pains

  • Depending on your organization, attorneys have to start drafting contracts from scratch or start from a prior agreement. You can now store all approved contract templates in a single repository, eliminating manual tasks like filing, retrieving, etc.
