Business growth and scalability come from being able to identify and capitalize on each and every revenue opportunity. But when neither legal nor sales teams have a comprehensive, accurate understanding of all existing contracts or obligations, the potential is high to disappoint customers and miss contract renewals.

Finding key information manually to understand overall account health and details like upcoming obligations or renewal dates is a time-consuming process with uncertain results. However, contract AI is changing the landscape for legal teams across the board.

Contract management challenges teams face today
Many businesses have evolved from traditional file cabinets to some kind of digital repository for housing and managing contracts. But these tools are only glorified storage systems and haven’t freed legal and other teams from manual organization, categorization, and search. It remains difficult to see the full extent of the organization’s obligations and terms or answer critical business questions.

Without an automated process for extracting date-related terms, manual contract annotation typically falls through the cracks or remains in a perpetually in-progress workflow status, making your critical contract data forever an incomplete dataset. With this limited visibility into existing contracts, it’s much harder for sales to manage the renewal process effectively. If your legal team is still in a state of manual contract annotation, then it’s much less likely that your CRM is programmed to notify sales of an upcoming renewal. Reaching out to the customer proactively becomes an afterthought, as it’s too easy to miss expiration dates—and to subsequently miss out on recurring revenue.

A manual contract data management process and inaccurate contract categorization leads to other downstream reactive processes creating sudden and unpredictable urgency for the legal team. Legal has to drop what they’re doing to help sales find contracts, update terms, answer questions, or rewrite the contract from the ground up. This makes it difficult for legal teams to work efficiently on a high volume of contracts or have enough time to focus on other critical demands, like developing proactive policies to protect the business.
