Indispensable productivity tools for your contracts and legal users
Corporate lawyers and Contract administrators browse through their Outlook inbox many times over the course of a workday. Many of these email message are contracts related todos such as review of the third-party contract clause, updated contract document version sent by an external lawyer, information request on a payment obligation, request to share a renewal report, sometimes with large document attachments. These activities can be mind-boggling if one has to navigate between contract files, word documents, alerts and report builders.
eContracts Outlook app provides easy access to the contract repository from the Outlook email interface to search and retrieve contract information snippets for quick sharing, milestones, and tasks while postback documents, contact information and correspondence back to the contract record.
Of all the software applications for corporate legal use, Word ranks at the top of the list. It is the most widely used tool for contract drafting, reviews, negotiation and all legal documentation. With regards to contract drafting, authors have a personal chronicle of favorite and frequently used language along with some loosely agreed ‘house rules’ of admissible, tolerable, negotiable, alternate and unacceptable terms that are gathered over a period of time, again in the word.
eContracts Author Addon for Microsoft Word syncs up with a standard legal clause library in the eContracts application and makes adding and modifying clauses in a contract document effortless while staying compliant. Rules and conditions assigned to each individual clause prevent authors from using inappropriate or conflicting language.
