Webinar Content

Pre-screening contracts is traditionally a high volume, manual process that can be time-consuming for general counsels. This practice can prevent them from contributing to the wider strategic objectives of the business, while workload pressures and time constraints can lead to human error.

This webinar provides insights into pre-screening technology as a secure solution and explores how Artificial Intelligence (AI) tech can help save time on screening contracts and provide a report with potential risks and recommendations. It also covers how a general counsel’s team can benefit from such software to focus more on business performance.

This webinar covers
• existing working conditions of the general counsel’s team and impact this has on business performance,
• risks of legal delays,
• the AI technology to ease the workload,
• how the whole business can benefit from pre-screening technology.

By watching this webinar, you will gain
• a better understanding of contract pre-screening technology,
• awareness of how the general counsel’s team and wider organisations can benefit from these technologies.
