Trusted Self-service Contract Creation
By combining automated contract drafting with approval workflows, Contract Express contract automation software enables business users to initiate contract requests and receive signature-ready, locked PDFs when their request is complete and compliant. We call this trusted self-service contract creation, or “PDF or Lawyer”. Business users complete an intuitive, business-oriented online questionnaire. The PDF-or-lawyer approval workflow enforces compliance by only allowing a business user to access a signature-ready and locked PDF version of the agreement when their answers are complete and compliant, as established by Legal. Incomplete or non-compliant requests are automatically routed to the appropriate lawyer for review.
