8 reasons to consider Contract Express for your law firm

Contract Express delivers enterprise document automation for global law firms and corporations that seek more efficient contract drafting, management, and updates for agreements large and small.

Here are 8 reasons why your law firm should consider Contract Express.

1. Simple markup creation with fewer programming hours
At one time, using drafting software required extensive assistance from IT. Now, with the functionality of Contract Express and its dynamic engine, lawyers can more easily and quickly draft contracts using markup variables. The lawyer’s markup can be as sophisticated and complex as required by the customer’s needs.

2. Trust in process
Having trust in your software also means having trust in the process. Contract Express puts lawyers in control, reducing the fear of mistakes and the time needed for updates while increasing the cost savings against time spent. By reducing the number of people needed to create a contract, there’s less room for error and more peace of mind for trusting accuracy in the finished product.

3. Use a questionnaire to launch a contract
For those who draft 100+ pages of contracts on a consistent basis, details are cumbersome and critical to get right. Contract Express uses a patented questionnaire methodology to ensure the contract is drafted properly the first time. You can create approval flows, sign your generated contract, and report on the processes used at each drafting stage.

4. Saving hours for billable work
No one thinks about time savings with software programs because we all take software for granted. When you use Contract Express, however, you’re saving hours and hours daily by using the automated document assembly, questionnaire, and resulting template that help draft and maintain contracts. Your team is freed up for other billable work.

5. Cleaning the archives
Manual management of old files and archives requires someone in the know about file contents. Contract Express allows legal teams to schedule the deletion of inactive contracts themselves. Team members can set alerts as reminders of expiration dates, enhancing data management and security while eliminating the confusion of storing outdated versions of documents.

6. New search technology
Have you ever hunted through a contract seeking details or terms? Contract Express lets you use search connectors and target specific terms and phrases to pinpoint the document.

7. Solution for alternative fee agreements 
Law firms are always under the gun to reduce fees, especially for active clients with a higher demand for legal services. Contract Express features a contract drafting portal that lets clients add specific contract details themselves. Lawyers can then review the end product for accuracy and help as needed, saving clients’ billable time.

8. Win new business
With all the advantages already described, Contract Express also helps law firms attract and retain new clients. Firms are highlighting the greater efficiency and cost-savings they can achieve using this document automation software, in addition to offering basic documents on their website at no charge.
