About the partner 

As a DocuSign user, you can add Smart Clauses into your documents to automate certain actions. Smart Clauses turn parts of your agreements into running code, code that can listen to events in the environment, pull in information from external systems or databases, perform calculations, or kick off downstream actions based on logic. Smart Clauses can help you save significant time in validating document information and performing actions after signature, while also enabling you to prevent value leakage by automatically enforcing key contract provisions such discounts, charge-backs, credits, and more.

Clause is the leading provider of Connected Contracting® technology, enabling contracts to natively integrate with enterprise software and blockchain networks. Companies in industries as diverse as manufacturing, telecom, financial services, retail, and others can use Clause to automate compliance with legally binding obligations, reducing operating costs and minimizing revenue leakage. The Clause platform provides real-time visibility about contract performance. Clause can be accessed via a web application or API.
