AI-enabled Contract Analysis for Legal Operations & Contract Management - How to Get it Right?

Do you know that the data in your contract management systems contain much more value than you are currently deciphering? In fact, daily procurement contract operations generate a lot of data with untapped potential, which lies in a variety of your system, and may be helpful for legal and vendor management teams.

Drive Excellence in Legal Operations with AI-enabled Contract Analysis

McKinsey & Company reports that 90 percent of annual revenue across industries is documented in contracts.

To get the total value of your contract data, you need proper AI-driven contract analytics that can extract insights and provide a digital view of your contract, including deep insights into your clauses. Legal and procurement professionals can achieve this with contract metadata extraction and verification, clause sentiment analysis, and semantic search that improve complex contract management workflows.

How Can Legal Teams Harness the Full Value of Contract Data

Legal teams in most organizations have come way far from maintaining records in a spreadsheet. Although legal tech adoption has only helped a little in automating the process, it has delivered the ability to organize, sort, and manipulate data to be extracted and collected manually.  

On the one hand, various process automation and contract management tools are undoubtedly earning good traction and catching the eyeballs of legal and procurement professionals. On the other hand, using technology to draft, store, review, and analyze contracts has continuously improved for a few decades. However, the pace has significantly scurried in the last 5-7 years. One of the significant observations is, the traditional tools are now focused more on automating mundane tasks like contract authoring and storing them in a centralized contract repository.

But, is that all we need? The need in the current scenario is way beyond this. Legal and procurement teams need more detailed and accurate insights at their fingertips, which many a time are hidden in complex contract language. In short, you need a mature AI-enabled contract management solution that provides contract analytics based on natural language processing (NLP).

What Role AI Can Play in Legal Services Delivery and Contract Management
