What is Contract Management?

Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) is the process of strategically managing and leveraging the entire lifespan of legally binding agreements between two or more parties within a business context. CLM tools are evolving rapidly. Not long ago, CLM software described a relatively simple system for document management and e-signature. Today, mature CLM solutions employ AI/ML data capture capabilities to turn the contract management process into an intelligent, real-time system of record.
