Contract Certainty: It’s What We Do

Ask most 7-year-olds what they want to be when they grow up and you’ll get the usual mix of astronauts, firemen, doctors, policemen and nurses. You won’t get too many that proclaim a desire to work with contracts, let alone in the Contract Lifecycle Management space.
At Exari we’re obsessed with contract certainty. While that often means our initial spiel in response to the dinner party classic, “What do you do?” may not be the most exciting,* it does mean that we live, breath and think about contracts. We know what the traps and risks are, we understand the quirks, exceptions and opportunities for improvement. Sound exciting? Maybe not, but we love solving large, ugly contract problems.
The sorts of problems we often see and tackle are:
  • Deep conditionality and complex business flows. Many of our clients think their contracts are in good shape and straightforward until they dig deeper and get better insight into how their documents are actually drafted, negotiated and approved.
  • General document quirks. When automating documents everything becomes a lot more dynamic. What was a simple list, cross-reference or numbering scheme now needs to handle a variety of different conditional possibilities.
  • Handling counter party paper. Even when you have your creation and management processes under control, eventually you’ll hit agreements that were not drafted your way or using your terms.

With the right tools these very tough problems disappear. And when they disappear, contracting and business processes improve and require less money and time making lawyers, business-people and clients alike very happy. Exari Hub gets you organised and on the road to understanding your contracts and negotiating processes. Exari Contracts takes the next step and allows you to control everything from creation right through to signature and archive. Come learn what we mean by contract certainty and why we’re pretty happy with what we became when we grew up.

*Editor’s note: This statement has some notable exceptions; automating contracts ultimately lowers the costs of legal work for clients making it more accessible. In a world where the average consumer or small business may struggle to afford necessary legal work, we believe that any measure that reduces the cost of access to the law is a noble pursuit. How’s that for a dinner party spiel?
