Contract management systems do not adequately handle the intake, review, and negotiation of third-party contracts.

PDFs

Legal functions struggle to efficiently convert and redline PDF contracts.

Access to examples

Practitioners struggle with finding information whileworking remote, and team members are not readily available (e.g., sharing best practices).
