    Welcome to the exciting world of AI-based contract management - where the strength of natural language processing (NLP) can transform your organization into an efficient, well-structured, and risk-averse powerhouse. Long gone are the days of manual contract analysis and review; cutting-edge NLP technology is here to save you time, money, resources, and sanity.

    So, strap in and get ready to explore how NLP-driven contract management is positively transforming the legal operations landscape!


    NLP Explained: What's the Buzz?

    Natural language processing is a fascinating aspect of artificial intelligence (AI) with machine learning (ML) – especially as it applies to contract management.

    NLP technology can understand, interpret, and even recommend contract language. With its ability to extract and process contract data, clauses, and legal text at lightning speed, NLP is perfect for supporting the complex task of contract lifecycle management (CLM). From drafting contracts to identifying risks and potential red flags in human language, NLP is your legal department’s new best friend.

    Let’s explore five ways NLP – together with CLM solutions – can help you confidently manage thousands of contracts in the age of legal ops digital transformation.

    #1 - Say Goodbye to Manual Contract Review!

    Sifting through numerous agreements – something like 40,000 active contracts or more - can be a tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone process. Thankfully, NLP within contract management software can swiftly analyze your contracts, identify key terms and clauses, and flag potential risks with accuracy and efficiency that will leave you wondering why you ever did it the old-fashioned way.

    In order to reap the benefits of NLP, one simply needs to easily set up an NLP taxonomy within CLM software to fit their organization’s needs. A taxonomy is a means of classifying key information and legal language. Once this task is performed and NLP is leveraged, your legal team can be freed up to focus on growing your business while performing more strategic aspects of contract management.


    #2 - Minimize Contract Risk & Maximize Efficiency

    NLP-driven contract management can help identify inconsistencies, potential legal risks, and contract clauses that may be detrimental to your business with fuzzy logic matching and structured data recognition.

    By automating the processes of intelligent contract data extraction, text recognition, and contract review, NLP can help you avoid costly legal disputes and ensure your contracts are airtight. As such, your organization can be more protected from the pitfalls of human error.

    We hate to shill for the robots here – but human error is common and costly. It’s good to have real-time legal ops allies at your corner with NLP.

    #3 - Streamline Negotiations with Smarter Contract Drafting

    With NLP's advanced text recognition capabilities, you can draft contracts faster and more accurately than ever before.

    By analyzing existing contracts and understanding the nuances of contract language, NLP can recommend common clauses and language positioning to keep contracts consistent and accurate. This exciting functionality can help your team confidently generate contract drafts that are tailored to your business's specific needs - streamlining the negotiation process and getting deals done more quickly with favorable terms and outcomes.

    Think of NLP as your contract writing assistant. It essentially says…” Regarding that clause, you said it this way before and it resulted in favorable contract terms…don’t you want to say it the way you did before to repeat that success?” What a good friend!


    #4 - Stay Organized with Your NLP-Powered Contract Repository

    Wave goodbye to the days of searching through endless files and folders for that elusive contract!

    NLP-driven contract management systems can help you quickly name, categorize, tag, and store your contracts with a unique numerical ID. Quick contract searching and advanced drill-down filtering options can make contracts extremely searchable and accessible. This ease-of-search also applies to those pesky contract clauses that NLP by now has helped you make uniform and accurate.

    With an organized and rule-based contract repository at your fingertips, you'll never waste time hopelessly sifting through contracts again.

    #5 - Embrace Continuous Improvement With Analytics & Insights

    By leveraging data-driven contract analytics, you can make informed decisions to optimize your contract management processes, negotiate better deals, and improve your overall business performance. Easily examine contracts with a trusty magnifying glass in the form of NLP, reports, and more.
