Legal Contract Abstraction And Analytics With Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning

We can’t imagine survival of any modern organization without legal contracts. Very existence of modern organizations stems from contracts they get into. Be it external contracts or internal contracts or any other obligatory contracts, they all affect functioning of organization in present and in future. Astonishingly, more than 80% business transactions in organizations are bounded by contracts. All relations in organization are dictated by contracts organization and other parties get into.

Why It Is Vital To Supervise Organization’s Legal Contracts? 

When was the last time you checked your organizations contract document? It would be hard to recall! Do you have system in place trough which you get to know which contracts are up for negotiation? Answer would be NO! It is a common observation that most organizations do not manage and supervise contracts during their operational life, even though it is vital to monitor key aspects of contract.

As per EY report on contract optimization, managing contracts through their operation life can save 5% to 15% to organizations on contract cost itself. Moreover, failing on legal and regulatory compliance due to mediocre contract management system, can have far severe consequences.

Imagine that, after renewal of your critical service contract yesterday, you realized that you could have negotiated some price factors, saving huge cost. You could have done it easily, if you had some system in place to manage and supervise contract during its lifetime. Same way, you  may not have any clue about 100s of such contracts your organizations has got into! Hence, it is vital to manage and supervise legal contracts!

Legal Contract Mismanagement

Why Organizations  Fail To Manage And Supervise Their Legal Contracts? 

There are several reasons for organizations failing to establish sound contract management system.   But most significant ones are as below:

a. ‘Sign And Forget’

This attitude is prevalent across most of the stakeholders. Once signed, contracts become just another documents in store room. In case of emergency or renewal they are open

b. Lack of Dedicated And Internal Legal Team

In today’s economy where conserving cash and reducing cost are the priority, legal team for managing contracts can be an unnecessary overhead.

c. Manual Contract Management

Even if organizations are managing contracts, the process is manual and laborious. Manual process is highly prone to errors, creating risk in long term.

d. Lack of  RobustTech Based Legal Contract Management Solution

Though, organizations want to look for tech based alternative for this, they don’t know how and where to begin. There are not many option available.

And this is how contracts become most neglected documents in organization!
