San Francisco, CA – July 9 2013 – Seal Software Group, a provider of solutions to discover, capture, extract and manage contracts, today announced a new partnership with Novatus Contract Management, industry leaders in contract lifecycle management. The partnership will enable Novatus to enhance the solutions they provide their clients via their new Novatus DNA tool by ensuring that full contract visibility is attained by utilizing the unique Contract Discovery capabilities of Seal Software.
“Novatus DNA is a remarkable tool for our clients and significantly increases the flexibility and breadth of our CLM solution,” said Jeffrey Bosworth, senior vice president of sales and marketing with Novatus. “With it, you can ‘Discover’ existing contractual documents stored on your network in any file type (doc, PDF, jpg); ‘Navigate’ the document for key metadata; and ‘Analyze’ for essential, relevant info. All in one.”
Organizations recognize the need to better manage buy and sell side contract and supply chain management. The use of technology solutions to address challenges such as obligation management, renewals, pricing and other key milestones has long been at the center of the Novatus offering. A critical factor in the effectiveness and adoption of such solutions has long been the challenge of populating such systems with the current contract corpus, including contractual documents and metadata. Traditional methods of manual contract abstraction are slow, costly and cannot be repeated without further delay and cost.
Seal Contract Discovery and Analytics is the only automated Contract Discovery solution that identifies which documents are contractual, extracting an extendible core set of key contract metadata, as well as creating fully text searchable versions of contract image files. The contract documents, fully searchable PDFs and metadata can then easily be uploaded to Novatus Contract Management, more quickly and more cost effectively than has been previously possible. Furthermore, the process can be repeated at any time to extract additional metadata, process acquired business entities, additional departments etc.
“Novatus has years of experience in providing their customers with innovative contract and supplier management solutions. This partnership will help Novatus ensure that their customers have all of their contracts under control, with full contract metadata visibility, helping customers to better manage risk and cost,” said Dan Daehler, VP Global Services & Channels, Seal Software.
