Some of our top recognised Docusign CLM strengths include:

  • Salesforce integrations: Docusign is investing, alongside the Salesforce product team,  in building deeper integrations between CLM and Salesforce products. This goes beyond traditional CRM integrations. 
  • AI and contract analytics: Docusign has one of the most mature contract review and analysis solutions on the market.
  • Innovation: Docusign has made significant investments into cutting edge solutions, which drive significant advantages in understanding and defining the future of CLM.

Gartner defines contract life cycle management (CLM) software as “an application that proactively manages contracts from the initiation stage through the award, compliance and renewal stages.“

According to Gartner, “CLM appeals to companies of all sizes in all industries. Implementing it can lead to significant improvements in revenue management, cost savings and efficiency. Understanding and automating CLM can also limit an organisation’s liability and increase its compliance with legal requirements.”

Gartner recommends “the most progressive approach to CLM is to adopt it as part of an enterprisewide strategy that considers the interdependencies among contracts, business processes, operational and financial results, and that indicates a high level of maturity.” 1
