AI Transforming Contracts from Remote History to Modern Metrics

Contracts form the foundation of all business relationships. In fact, 60-80% of business transactions are governed by written contractual agreements and a typical Fortune 1000 company maintains 20,000-40,000 active contracts at any given point of time. Despite the large scale and criticality of contracts, once signed, they are often stored away in file cabinets and storage systems. With no concrete way to look them up or monitor their performance, they become dormant and remote history. This could have significant implications for companies including financial and reputational losses due to non-compliance, substandard delivery, auto-renewals, missed payments, penalties etc.

Purchase Orders for Resource Contracts?

Hello - We have a very large contingent work force and are continually renewing short term rate cards due to the dynamics of business needs. I am sure you can imagine that this take a lot of legwork with regard to processing renewals and keeping up with Master Agency Agreements on a regular basis. I also work closely with the Accounts Payable group and what we also find a challenge is the back end processing to get those vendors/agencies paid. We currently use purchase orders (really contract numbers from our CLM system) but these tend to be time consuming as well, I just wanted to see what everyone else was doing out there?

NDA vs. CA

I recently had a vendor say they could not sign and NDA but was authorized to sign a CA. In my experience this title is used loosely. I understand an NDA is usually used more for specialized business opportunities, but we have sign CA's in this instance also. To me it is more of the body of the agreement versus the title. This has me wondering what is truly the difference and when to use one versus the other?
