NOT THAT

Wait until you find money in your budget to invest in a CLM solution.

WHY?

As Wolters Kluwer suggests manual systems are inefficient and contribute to:

  • Lack of audit trail necessary for compliance evidence

  • Configurable, rule-based workflow engine automating compliance policy
  • Automated capture of contract metadata
