NEW YORK and HOUSTON – September 26, 2019 – Onit, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise workflow solutions including enterprise legal management and business process automation, today announced the official launch of its contract lifecycle management (CLM) software. Onit CLM empowers legal and business teams to streamline the entire contract process, drastically reduce processing time, thereby achieving higher contract compliance rates, and compressed revenue cycles.

Onit CLM is available immediately and can be offered as a standalone product or as part of a broader offering that includes enterprise legal management (ELM), legal service requests (LSR), legal holds, and more than 200+ other operations, risk and compliance workflow solutions.

“The unveiling of our new contract lifecycle management software is a natural extension of our existing portfolio of products and services,” commented Eric M. Elfman, Onit CEO and co-founder. “We built our best-in-class CLM technology based on nearly a decade of building contract workflow solutions for our customers and learning from their needs. We’ve also adapted our best practices for implementing these solutions into the new Onit CLM software. Our commitment to serving Fortune 500 companies and the largest global companies is foundational to our company and we are passionate about building a workflow automation platform that helps drive operational and process improvements across the enterprise – not just in legal. By expanding our footprint in contract lifecycle management, we can offer a comprehensive solution that addresses the growing needs of legal operation departments of all sizes and geographies.”

Market Assessment

As corporate legal operations departments gain more responsibility and oversight of the contract process, they need a technology partner that can grow with them. According to the 2019 Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Benchmarking Survey, contract management tools can dramatically shorten cycle times. In billion-dollar companies, legal departments that employ contract management technology reduce their average contract cycle time 33% (from 30 days to 20 days). The profound impact of technology on CLM is gaining momentum globally as more companies are realizing its extensive benefits as a business value driver.
