Intake & Drafting


Contract lifecycle management software provides a simple contract request form for users to populate with basic data to begin the process.

With contract lifecycle management, there are also systematic tasks that can be used to populate a contract request. These systems have enough information where the contract lifecycle management software can look for triggers and automatically get the data to create a new contract request rather than a user manually creating the contract request. Below are a few examples of data that can be used to create a contract request.

  • OCR external contracts to capture data elements required for contract request.
  • A CRM system with a customer project or opportunity in a certain stage.
  • A new vendor in your ERP system that has a certain vendor type associated with it.

Negotiate - Redline - Approve


Users can review the contract draft, negotiate with involved parties, and approve the draft. The solution enables users to perform the negotiation within the contract lifecycle management software and to review and redline the contract externally with enterprise file sync and sharing.

eSignature technology within the solution or in conjunction with the solution (i.e. DocuSign or Adobe Sign integration) allows parties to securely and digitally sign documents which saves time compared to snail mail, scanning, email, or fax.

As documents are edited internally or externally, the system will store each revision as an audit trail. Major and minor revisions are kept so users can refer back to see what has been changed and at what stage in the process it was changed. A compare tool allows different revisions to be compared to show the differences between revisions.

Contract Request Workflow


Processes that control and traffic a contract request throughout its lifecycle can be simple or complex, defined or ad-hoc. You’ll be able to eliminate the need to manually track and facilitate each step, and workflows can differ by role, contract type, or data within a contract record.
