Vendors in Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM)

Contract Management, or Contract Lifecycle management (CLM) solution providers, including the automation of the authoring, collaboration, signature, storage, re-use/reference, and analytics related to B2B buy-side contracts (even though providers may have sell-side and B2C functionality). CLM is a core application within larger application suites in source-to-pay, procure-to-pay, ERP, etc. It includes not just management of a contract document repository, but also the terms and conditions libraries (and underlying commercial obligations and risks buried in the contract provisions) that are defined and managed to “build up” the contract at a more granular data level based on an increasingly complex set of business rules.
