A press release from Exari Group announces that Linde, Inc., a member of The Linde Group, has licensed Exari to automate North American sales contracts for three of its business units. Those units use approximately 20 different documents covering the different products and geographies and will use the document assembly software to handle them.
As the press release put it, “Using Exari will allow our sales people to be more responsive to our customers,” said Mark Weller, Linde’s North America General Counsel. “Once the legal department sets up the smart templates in Exari, sales people will be able to create their own contracts and close deals in less time either avoiding tying up our in-house legal resources or certainly using less of their time.” That quote puts very nicely several of the benefits to law departments of document assembly (See my post of Feb. 26, 2008: document assembly with 16 references.).
