Automated contract negotiation saves time, money, and hassle

How Automated Contract Negotiation Works

From playbook development to training sample submission and contract uploading, LexCheck’s automated contract negotiation process prioritizes simplicity and efficiency. The three steps described below provide an overview of the entire process. 

Step 1: Set up your playbook.

LexCheck completes a one-time setup of your AI Digital Playbook to train the system in your contract review guidelines. Playbook guidelines may cover Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA), Software-as-a-Service Agreements (SaaS), Master Service Agreements (MSA), supply agreements, POs, and other types of commonly reviewed contracts. 

Step 2: Submit your contracts.

Less than 24 samples are required to align the AI with your specific playbook guidance. After training the AI, contract submission is as easy as sending an email or uploading contracts directly to the platform. 

Step 3: Receive a fully redlined contract.

LexCheck leverages natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning to make inferences from written content and adjust contract language to your preferred positions. A fully-redlined agreement, including context-based suggestions, can be delivered to your legal department within only three to five minutes of its submission.
