THOUGHTRIVER | NETWORKING SPONSOR

ThoughtRiver’s automated contract review technology addresses a fundamental problem for lawyers (in-house and private practice): you simply don’t know which part of a contract to focus on without reading it all. In doing so we also address a key problem for CEOs and sales leaders: “how do I increase my deal velocity?” Our automated contract review technology speeds up the contracting process by pre-screening the contract, answering key legal questions, and then serving up detailed advice and then guiding users through remediation within Microsoft Word. The end result is an increase in deal velocity allowing companies to sign more deals and pull revenue forward. We call this process intelligent contract pre-screening.
