Cloud-based software provides digital front door to legal department
MANCHESTER, Feb. 7, 2022: Summize, the Manchester-based digital contracting company, has announced the first generation of industry-leading integrations for its digital contract solution after achieving a 900% growth in annual recurring revenue (ARR) over the past two years.
As one of the first legal tech providers to venture into native integrations, Summize has bolstered its existing Microsoft Word Add-In, providing a frictionless experience for business user and legal team collaboration.
The newly announced Microsoft Teams and Slack integrations provide a Q&A-style bot experience within these familiar platforms to automate workflows and accelerate the contract process.
With Summize, the entire contract lifecycle, including contract review, is simplified and streamlined, without replacing ways of working or existing tech stacks. For business users, requesting and managing contracts is now completely frictionless via Teams and Slack, ensuring faster revenue generation and improved collaboration with the legal department without introducing risk.
The Microsoft Teams integration has been released to Summize’s global customer base (which includes businesses such as Vodafone, Everton FC, and Fujifilm) and is already helping to maximise adoption of its software across business units such as Sales, HR, and Finance.
This launch is part of a planned line of integrations to be released over the next 12 months as the company enters its next phase of growth.
Tom Dunlop, CEO at Summize commented: “By integrating into Microsoft Teams and Slack, Summize is pioneering game-changing digital contracting. We are doing it differently, uniting both legal teams and business users without replacing the tech stack or legal experience of the organisations we work with. We’ve had fantastic feedback from clients and prospects and we’re confident that the future of digital contracting software lies in complementing existing technology, not replacing it.”
Andrew Leaitherland, Founder of arch.law and non-Executive Director at Summize added: “As a lawyer, I understand the pain points that in-house legal face every day. Summize’s integrations with collaboration tools are invaluable in a world where remote working is the new normal. You’re empowering users to self-service; but still managing and reducing legal risk. It’s a win-win for both the legal team and the rest of the business.”
