Enterprise contract lifecycle management software (or “ECLM”) is used to support cradle-to-grave management of contracts. LegalShift understands the best use of these tools to aid in contract request, authoring, negotiation, approval, automated signature, obligations management, amendment, audit and reporting and renewal. As importantly, LegalShift has the unique ability to bring together different constituencies, e.g. Procurement and Sales functions, in development of a shared vision and a united plan for execution and adoption of technology and process change.
