Contract Lifecycle Management


First, you must manage all the inbound Contract requests, and set the life cycle process for each one in motion.


Then there’s tracking the negotiations with a markup and approval process for managing the tasks related to this contract.


Once the contract is signed the final phase is managing all the obligations throughout the contract’s life.

Stage 1 – Contract Request

  • Responsible parties are identified for routing and additional questions appear on the form.
  • By identifying the counterparty the system can later require their approval.
  • Any supporting documents can be uploaded to the web form and can be automatically profiled in iManage.

Stage 2 – Contract Mark-up and Approval Workflow

Once the form is submitted, an automated workflow is initiated.

This workflow will move the contract through the life cycle, collecting information and automatically notifying the proper people when their part of the project becomes active.

If you are ready to collect signatures; DocMinder® can automatically start a DocuSign process.

  • Multiple or any number of the contracts can be sent at the same time;
  • DocuSign will then notify the responsible person, via email, to collect the required signatures;
  • DocMinder® will then file the signed contracts into the corresponding iManage Workspace and folder;
