Draft Win-Win Clauses
Pleasant Contract Server with its co-authoring features improve the team's ability to draft favorable clauses. These special clauses that improve the chances of a rewarding relationship with the client are easy to draft with inputs from various internal departments. Expressing those departmental concerns is easier if the contract lifecycle management tool enables active discussion and followup on special terms of agreement.
- Co-authoring & SAML Single Sign On
- Template Authoring & Management
- Special Clauses, Timeline Alerts, and Advanced Filters
The 'Win-formula' is to pave the way to a long-term business relationship using clauses that guarantee success. To be able to do that in a competitive time-frame is what keeps you ahead of the competition. Using a tool that's less complex than most, increases your team's chances of interacting better. When the learning curve to adopt the new contract lifecycle management system is shorter, the legal team experiences positive and measurable performance improvements.
Win in Negotiation
Visibility into financial and operational aspects of the contract offers an enviable confidence to the bidding team. This confidence uplifts the team's ability to skillfully negotiate the terms of contract. The ability to easily view special clauses using advanced filters on the contract repository presents a broader picture on similar contracts. The team gets to negotiate deals in tandem with the set market goals and overall business objectives.
In order to get to the 'Win-formula' the legal team should have a complete snapshot of the target market and various contracts under negotiation. A consolidated view of current position of each contract informs the business leaders on possible partnerships recently acquired. These recently acquired advantages could influence the negotiation tactics employed to improve profit margins, or uproot competition.
Protect Clauses that Win Deals
Special clauses that play on your competitive advantage, need to be guarded against security breaches. Brand legacy is often built on protected clauses that are only accessible by special permission. Pleasant Contract Server comes with a military grade access and privilege management systems to store intellectual assets. The contract servers integration with Active Directory/ LDAP makes it easy to implement corporate security policies across and least privileged access rules on critical contracts. The ability to instantly revoke all systems access from compromised user accounts is critical for effective control over enterprise secrets.
- Lockout, Timeout, and IP Restrictions
- Scheduled Database Backups & Restore
- AD/LDAP Integration & Group Permissions
Highly contested markets create copy-cat companies that quickly replicate any advantage the pioneering company might have created. However, if the 'special clause' is protected, then the company enjoys lasting benefits. Profit margins increase with increase in the duration of the contract, and with the increase in the size of the deal. The 'Win-formula' is to not only innovate with the special clauses but to protect them from getting copied.
Hack Proof your Win
Many contractual advantages are compromised even before they are established because the partnership-winning special clauses were emulated by competing parties before they were signed. Pleasant Contract Server's on-premises nature eliminates the need to share sensitive documents as attachments over unsecured email platforms, and store sensitive data on a public cloud.
- Company-defined Security Policy
- On-Premises Contract Server
- DocuSign Integration, and Visual Workflow Editor
The 'Win-Formula' is to secure not just the contracts that are signed, but more so the ones that are pending negotiation/discussion with the client. The chances of losing a contract to competition is higher if the negotiations are hijacked by unscrupulous parties. The opportunity cost of not having a secure Contract Server far exceeds the investment required in deploying a secure contract lifecycle management system.
Win Market Exclusivity
Pleasant Contract Server's intelligent workflow management tool defines the rules of engagement among users & user-groups working on the contract. The customized dashboard for each user adds efficiency to the contract authoring and approval process. These product features along with the Clause Library and Contract Templates improve the teams ability to draft market-leading offers around early-payment benefits, timely contract renewal discounts, and more.
Strive for specificity on the terms of the contract to avoid cost overruns, encourage your client to never miss a payment due date using custom alerts from the contract server, create a provision for late payment penalties, identify your client’s requirements ahead of time to eliminate the need to renegotiation, and win deals with a 'Win-formula' that is just the right fit for your enterprise.

It has the ability to increase profitability, fortify cybersecurity, prevent missed opportunities for renewal and renegotiation, and significantly reduce the risk of error.
