Getting in the Contracting Driver’s Seat With Workflow Designer & Ironclad CTO Cai GoGwilt

Contracts technology has traditionally focused solely on the problem of management to the exclusion of process innovation.

It’s the only contracting solution that lets legal teams and business users design, deploy and make changes to contracting processes on their own, in a matter of minutes. Offering unprecedented self-serve control, this new-found autonomy lets them:...
