Think about the last time you were presented with a terms of service form, or any other type of online legal agreement. Now answer this question: did you actually read through the whole thing? We're guessing you didn't, and you're not alone. NPR recently conducted a study to look more in depth at typical human behavior when it comes to lengthy legal documents, and found that those who don't read through the full policies aren't the exception, they are the rule.
Gone are the days of mailing and remailing contracts, and we could not be more thrilled. Written contracts can often be time-consuming and complex, and honestly just a big pain. Luckily, eSignatures have come to save the day! Contracts don’t necessarily need the typical ink-to-paper form of signing anymore, yet some companies have not taken advantage of all that eSignatures and clickwraps have to offer. In this blog we will outline some contract-signing practices that have yet to completely fall to the wayside (but hopefully will soon).
There’s a big difference between a good landing page and a great landing page, and you know it when you see it. No matter what a company is selling or what type of consumer they are targeting, a great landing page can make all of the difference. The most effective landing pages will be the ones that are designed to convert or warm up potential customers before sending them through into the next stage of the buying journey.

A couple of weeks ago, we unveiled a completely new and unique solution to the world called the Contract Execution Platform. We got an amazing response—we also had great attendance on our webinar focused on providing 3 ways businesses like Mopro, CDW, and SwervePay are sending automated, frictionless contracts, and how you can reimagine the contract experience within your business. That tells me one thing: There’s an appetite for a better way to execute contracts.
But what does a Contract Execution Platform do? We’re going to be writing a blog series providing you with some thoughtful posts around how to re-envision your business relationships to drive faster, more seamless experiences at every level. My goal is to get you thinking about your roadmap internally to help reduce your people-driven processes and to use the power of technology to simplify. A contract should be a living, breathing, connected cross-section of data that drives action in your business—it shouldn’t weigh you down with overhead or cost like what you typically see in contract management.
Rarely do I get excited about building out a new integration. It’s not that I’m not up to the challenge, (because let’s be honest what self-respecting developer doesn’t get amped at building out a new feature!?), but the idea of having to dig through outdated documentation for an overly complex API that then requires three methods of authentication just to get in, well that just doesn’t sound like a fun afternoon.
I've attended quite a few legal tech/operations related conferences and trade shows over the past 10 years - both as a practicing attorney and as the CEO of PactSafe. Most of the them have a heavily vendor-driven agenda geared toward law firms. I'm often left with very little hope that the legal profession is on the right track to evolve and embrace efficiency and technology. Last week, though, I had the privilege to attend the 2017 CLOC (Corporate Legal Operations Consortium) Institute in Las Vegas, and I left with a much different outlook.
Yesterday our Co-Founder & COO Eric Prugh hosted a webinar breaking down three ways PactSafe is reimagining contracts in the "right-now" economy. During the webinar, he shared three examples of how current PactSafe customers use the contract execution platform. (Spoiler alert: it's revolutionary)
We're thrilled to announce that we've built Approvals into the Contract Execution Platform. Now, when sending Requests, users can designate an order of internal folks at their company who need to approve it before it goes out to prospects, employees, or partners. Users can setup approvers really easily:
Then, when users who require approval are sending contracts, they can submit for approval based upon a designated Approval Order:

It's a pretty exciting week for our team at PactSafe as we officially launch some significant, and game changing, upgrades to our platform. Tech companies are always evolving, adding new features, and more, however the story behind this particular evolution in our platform and our business is one we feel needs to be shared.
