Integration Can Make or Break Your CLM Solution's Success
Modern Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) solutions offer a host of stunning features that can revolutionize the productivity and strategic contributions of your legal team -- assuming they can integrate with other software tools effectively. Nothing undermines the potential of a CLM suite as badly as poor software integration options.
If the pandemic taught us anything, it's that every legal team needs a robust e-signature tool for executing agreements outside office spaces and office hours. But many of us also learned that manually moving legal agreements out of your contract drafting and online document storage apps, then into an e-signature tool, and then into an email message leads to lost time, lost files, and -- in the worst cases -- lost deals.
Don't Interrupt Workflows
If you've adopted a CLM suite to make sure contracts aren't lost or neglected in between the drafting, reviewing, finalizing, executing, and managing stages, the worst thing you can do is adopt an e-signature tool that interrupts that seamless workflow. Just like your CLM solution needs to connect to mission-critical apps like Microsoft Word, Dropbox, and Salesforce, your e-signature tool needs to integrate natively with your CLM suite, as well.
