Contract Life Cycle

Contract Life Cycle Management

A single, central location to streamline the management and oversight of contracts.

Contract processes are often disconnected, and information is stored in multiple locations. Without visibility into your contracts, it’s practically impossible to manage every contract at every stage of the life cycle.

With DocMinder®Contract Life Cycle Management you can automate the complete contracting life cycle by simplifying, automating and streamlining the processes that surround your contracts.

Stage One – Contract Request

Request Form

When you create a new request you're presented with an electronic webform that requires you to identify information, such as:

  1. Responsible individual(s) and/or counter-party(s)
  2. Upload supporting files and/or documentation
  3. Automatically profile in iManage (or similar document management systems);

When new request is submitted an approval workflow is started.

Stage Two – Markup and Approval

Approval Workflow

The approval workflow is an automated process that controls the tasks involved in submitting, reviewing, collaborating on and, ultimately, approving new document requests.

The workflow is routed through the process and collects information at each step. Automatic notifications are sent to the assigned individual(s) when their step is active in the process.
