Software to help handle contracts – recent references [metapost contract software II 12]
The ubiquity of commercial contract work in legal departments matches the prolixity of software that can help. I have previously collected posts about technology and contracts, but more have accumulated since then (See my post of Nov. 22, 2008: contract management software with 11 references; and June 1, 2010: contract management and software to assist with 10 references.).
Databases and drafting systems predominate in the references but there are also portals, email transfers and analytic tools (See my post of Sept. 21, 2009: offshore database to coordinate contracts; Jan. 7, 2010: clients request contracts through portal (Catholic Healthcare West); Jan. 10, 2010: legal department has contract assembly database; Feb. 19, 2010: automated drafting system at Latham & Watkins; April 20, 2010: software to match contract terms against other parties’; June 29, 2010: Codean’s Visualizer software; Sept. 6, 2010: lessons learned about contract management software; Dec. 17, 2010: Ladbrokes law department licenses its contract management system; April 11, 2011: automatic linkage between contracts and email; April 19, 2011: Fenwick & West offers corporate contracts and documents online; April 25, 2011 #1: law firm provides document creation tools online; and April 29, 2011: Lecorpio offers contract management software.).
