Contract Clarity Out of Chaos
Providing a cost-effective way to gain insight into contracts
A top 10 hedge fund had a shared hard drive with over 40,000 active and expired vendor-side agreements and kept a manually updated spreadsheet for tracking the agreements. The contracts were difficult to search and did not provide any insights into contractual obligations. The company needed a cost-effective way to gain insight into their contracts, archive expired and terminated agreements and capture relevant contract metadata to load into a new contract life cycle management (CLM) software solution.
- Leveraged technology and a blend of onshore and offshore legal resources to review the 40,000 files, extracting contractually relevant documents from email, approval cover sheets and financial forecasts.
- Threaded 22,000 documents into contract families by relating master agreements with associated amendments and statements of work.
- Captured relevant metadata from each document, including legal obligations and the client’s customized attributes fields.
- Configured a CLM solution that provided a structured repository with advanced search capabilities, dynamic reporting and custom notifications.
- Created a load file of all the relevant documents’ metadata for ingestion into the new CLM solution.
