What is CLM software? closed-icon open-icon

Contract lifecycle management software (also known as CLM software) helps companies manage contracts and agreements at every stage of the contract lifecycle, from drafting and execution to performance audits and termination. CLM software helps establish a proactive contract management process while automating routine work to free up time and resources. Some CLM solutions solve each stage of the contract lifecycle, while other solutions provide the ability to impact a specific stage quickly and affordably.

How does a CLM work? closed-icon open-icon

CLM software is a lifecycle management solution that automates legal templates and streamlines contract workflows for key contract lifecycle stages. Some solutions address all contract lifecycle stages and provide 360 degrees of visibility into an organization’s contracts. Other solutions specialize in solving one critical contract management pain point. The end goal of all CLM software solutions is to speed up bureaucratic legal processes and get rid of lengthy contract lifecycles.

Why do I need a CLM? closed-icon open-icon

Advanced CLM software provides full visibility into agreements, establishes a clear process, reduces the risk of mistakes, saves time and money, maximizes the value of legal work, and generates a positive ROI. CLM software is also capable of tracking and showing the Legal department’s material impact in a data-driven, transparent manner so that all departments can become aware of and recognize the value of Legal.

How do I learn if I need a different CLM? closed-icon open-icon

To determine if a specific CLM is the right fit, you need to ask yourself several questions:

  • Does it provide end-to-end lifecycle process coverage?
  • Does it offer a centralized repository that can be easily searched?
  • Can it be used by everyone in the company?
  • Does it cover your business needs?
  • Is my system a difficult CLM software?
  • Which agreements does my CLM process?

You can also use our CLM risk scorecard to guide your evaluation of your existing software.

Yes, you can migrate from your current CLM system to ContractWorks CLM. We’ll take appropriate steps to ensure your data is preserved, and we’ll set everything up for you (including all drafting and approval workflows) at no extra cost. All you have to do is let our team know.

What is contract lifecycle management? closed-icon open-icon

Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) is the process of monitoring and managing all elements of a contract through a specific series of steps, oftentimes known as ‘stages’. CLM includes tracking associated factors like a contract’s performance, compliance, and other success indicators. CLM typically starts the moment a contract is requested or proposed, and it covers all steps from initiation to its termination or renewal. To simplify the workload, CLM software and specialized CLM tools provide special features that automate and ease the requirements of each CLM stage.

What is a CLM tool? closed-icon open-icon

A CLM tool is an example of CLM software. It provides users with specialized functions and features that enable more efficient contract management. Many types of CLM software exist. Some CLM software is comprised of just one or two core functions, like approval and reporting workflows. More advanced, powerful CLM software like ContractWorks CLM is capable of end-to-end contract management. In addition to contract drafting workflows, end-to-end CLM software also possesses features like e-signatures, alerts, notifications, obligations tracking, renewals management, redlining workflows, review workflows, and more. 

How much does CLM cost? closed-icon open-icon

Every CLM solution vendor charges their own price for their service. In the case of ContractWorks CLM, we provide three affordable, transparent plans that can fit the budget of legal teams of any size. All three plans are billed annually and come with unlimited users, as well as a certain number of documents and e-signature licenses.

How much can I save by using ContractWorks CLM? closed-icon open-icon

The amount you can save by switching to ContractWorks CLM software depends greatly on your company’s current contracting processes and related costs. However, on average, for every 1,200 contracts processed each year, ContractWorks CLM software helps companies save up to 2,500 hours and $224,000. For growth-minded companies, this is a considerable amount of time and money that can be reinvested back into the company. For value-minded companies, the time can be repurposed for additional projects, while the money could be redistributed to shareholders as dividends or allocated for other endeavors.
