Contract negotiation: The Present Model and Future Outlook

Signing a contract is always preceded by negotiation. Parties go back and forth on terms related to their cooperation until both sides are satisfied and ready to seal the deal. The process of contract negotiation can be quick and painless or slow and full of misunderstanding. The evolution of digitized processes offers new ways and opportunities for us to work together from the first stage of negotiation to the final signing.

What does a manual contract negotiation process look like?

Contract negotiation as we know it involves multiple face-to-face meetings and over the phone conversations between businesses and their lawyers. But even if we take the simplest model, it’s easy to see the bottlenecks and inefficiencies. For example, company 1 meets with company 2. They agree on document provisions and company 1 sends company 2 a draft contract. Company 2 forwards the doc to their legal department and makes slight alterations. Company 2 calls company 1 and informs them of the amendments. Company 1 agrees to the changes by phone, but once they receive the amended document and consult with their lawyers, it requires some additional changes. This process can go on and on and sometimes companies 1 and 2 never come to an agreement. The traditional go around explained above is a massive waste of time. Why even do business, if simply talking about doing business is such a hassle?

Let us layout the most common issues with traditional contract negotiation:
  1. Low customer satisfaction – It’s 2020. No matter what part of the world you’re doing business in your customers and clients expect smooth and comfortable processes. If your business can’t handle dynamic document management, then the customer experience you deliver will be low.
  2. Poor compliance – Failure to keep track of each step and change in your negotiation process can lead to missed information, misunderstandings and possible compliance issues with state or federal regulations.
  3. Waste of time and resources – Every time either party introduces new amendments, new drafts need to be authored. Drafting new docs isn’t cheap nor is it fast.

How can software enhance contract negotiation?

As we already know the process of contract negotiation has an end goal of reaching a compromise between two or more parties. It usually incorporates two stages: negotiation between businesses followed by conversation between lawyers. While businesses focus on things that get them what they want, lawyers pursue the goal of diminishing risks and increasing benefits. The legal side is the most difficult and time-consuming and what calls for everyone to re-negotiate.

Doing all of this manually takes a lot of time, effort, and resources. Basically, inefficient. It’s the beginning of bottlenecks that lead to lost money, productivity, and in some cases reputation.

To speed everything up, many of the best companies introduce advanced software for automating mundane steps, sending notifications, and building more collaborative environments.

Implementing contract negotiation software:
  1. Accelerates negotiation – Slow processes quickly become a thing of the past. Good software speeds up how two parties work together.
  2. Enhances visibility – Poor visibility is number one for complaints connected to contract negotiations. People want to know what’s happening.
  3. Streamlines the approval process – Roles are set-up in a certain order. Bargaining becomes clear, smooth and fast. Every party involved is aware of their contribution in the document lifecycle.
  4. Improves accuracy – Automated processes reduce human-prone errors like misspellings, repeated info, missing info, etc.
  5. Strengthens compliance – Having an audit trail enables everyone to track every single step made during the process and by who.
