McDonald’s law department and document assembly

The law department of McDonald’s Corp. uses its matter management system, TeamConnect from Mitratech, as a document assembly tool (Mitratech, McDonald’s Case Study, Aug. 1, 2005 at 4. The example given is technology agreements, which are “usually standard consulting agreements and work orders, with only a few variables.”

The benefits from using document assembly are as easy to state as its implementation seems difficult (See my post of March 24, 2005 doubting the spread of such software and Aug. 31, 2005 about Schering-Plough Canada and its use.): greater productivity in producing similar agreements, centralized maintenance of standard forms of agreements, and easier training and quality control. And one more advantage for McDonald’s: “once contracts are completed, TeamConnect promotes compliance by advising key team members of agreement deadlines.”
