Customer-business relationship building is an age-old, proven practice that sets one business apart from the next. Legal departments that understand their clients’ or customers’ goals and priorities can foster a positive relationship and assist them more profoundly. The team that is forward-thinking and informed, develops a professional bond that is nearly impenetrable. But to do that they need the appropriate tools and communication from the get-go. 

The initial customer experience is a crucial determinant of a long-term relationship. Organizations must balance a smooth contract sales process with protecting their sellers and buyers. Internal research has found that a positive customer experience is a vital predictor for sustained customer engagement, leading to upsell and cross-sell opportunities. And a key part of this customer experience is the initial contract negotiation process. 

Strong legal teams ensure that the customer has a positive experience throughout the contract negotiation process. We know that the two main pain points that customers commonly experience are time and misalignment. Using a digital contract management solution, you can leverage tools such as automation, conditional template generation, and clause libraries to reduce turnaround time and increase internal and external visibility.
