The Cost of Enterprise Contracts

Enterprise contracts can cost anywhere from 5 to 7 figures, depending on the complexity of the contract. While many businesses might think this is inevitable, it is actually a hold-over from traditional contracting, which has a narrower place in modern businesses.

Any contract process that is linear (i.e., dependent on a previous step to move on to another) will certainly hold up your business. As sales people have to move their focus to late stage opportunities in order to recover revenue, these manual contract processes are no longer ideal.

CLM, or Contract Lifecycle Management, can't help with the friction introduced by contracts. CLM also impedes sales velocity, the measurement of how quickly your business earns money.

Contract Simplification and Reduced Contract Costs

Modern contract processes can allow your businesses to move faster and give sales people the autonomy they need to close business as quickly as possible while still allowing legal to have control over the contracts. 

By standardizing contracts and presenting digitally native agreements (rather than Word doc- or PDF-based contracts), businesses can significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to complete a transaction with a prospective and existing buyer. This causes you to spend less time and money on contracts, and empowers you to be more strategic about revenue recovery.
