In reality, most Legal teams are understaffed for the volume, complexity and criticality of their workload.
Administrative overhead, contract reviews and legacy toolsets drains valuable resource from impactful work.
Responsibility for protecting the company belongs ultimately to the Legal Team.
However the era of corporate climate change can make this difficult. Ever changing regulations, an explosion of data and remote working all increase the challenge of maintaining compliance.
The best-laid plans have to be abandoned when new, priority work arrives or via irregular interruption by colleagues.
When other teams are over-reliant on Legal, their time is often spent on non-specialist, administrative tasks.
Generate contracts via unlimited Microsoft Word Templates in Gatekeeper. Whether it’s MSAs, NDAs or SOWs, you can reduce repetitive work and focus on strategic matters.
Create an approved boilerplate clause library, with multiple legal approved clauses, so contracts can also be generated via self-service. These agreements are compliant and pre-approved, giving time back to Legal.
Push responsibility for raising new contract requests onto business stakeholders by giving them access to a centrally-controlled portal. Set the parameters and data requirements (inc mandatory fields) to ensure data validity. Receive and process only complete, compliant records for review.
Use the portal to allow stakeholders to check on the progress of their requests, thereby reducing interruption and maximising time spent on strategic, specialist activities.
Gatekeeper digitises your processes, while boosting compliance, by incorporating both redlining and electronic signatures.
Use your favoured redline solution, whether that’s MS Word®, Office for the Web or the native GK Editor before progressing to e-signature.
The final, flawless document, along with all previous versions, is recorded against the contract record.
