Implementing Legal Technology Solutions for Maximum ROI

icon-contractLegal departments will automate over 50% of their work by the end of the year, according to Gartner’s predictions. While there’s no doubt that legal technology solutions can offer many competitive advantages for teams that are pressured to do more with less, there is some confusion over where in the contracting process they can fit in to help businesses drive the most value. Let’s clear that up by taking a look at the different types of legal technology solutions, where in the contracting process they can maximize ROI, and why contract review and negotiation solutions offer the greatest value.

What are the Different Types of Legal Technology Solutions?

“Legal tech” is a very broad blanket term that encompasses:

    • Searchable (often cloud-based) storage repositories

    • Drafting software that includes templates, checklists, and clause libraries

    • Artificial intelligence (AI) that can streamline data management and eliminate repetitive tasks

    • Cybersecurity tools to bolster security and encrypt file transfer data

    • Workflow automation and auto-reminders that increase transparency and productivity

    • E-signature tools to expedite final approvals

    • Contract review, redlining, and negotiation platforms to increase efficiency

Each type of solution can help legal teams overcome various pain points of inefficient contract management. But many departments haven’t adopted them yet simply because they don’t understand the benefits of doing so or where in the contracting process to implement them.

Where Legal Technology Solutions Can Help Maximize ROI

While all of these tools are nice to have, contract review and negotiation solutions in particular offer the greatest potential time and cost savings. They can perform lawyer-quality work in a fraction of the time it takes an actual law professional. With weeks’ worth of routine work eliminated, businesses free up their top talent’s time to focus on duties that add significantly more value to the organization, like strategic positioning and building relationships with clients. This type of work is also more interesting and rewarding to employees who are often saddled with menial tasks and turning over at record-high rates. As new employees come in, contract review technology bolsters training processes by acclimating them to the company’s standardized negotiation positions, clauses, and best practices.
