Powered by Kira Systems, Apttus has introduced the world’s most advanced solution for managing agreements on third-party paper

SAN MATEO, CA – May 15, 2018 – Apttus, the global leader in Quote-to-Cash and Contract Lifecycle Management solutions utilizing artificial intelligence (AI), today revealed a new solution combining its Contract Lifecycle Management offering with advanced machine learning text analytics from Kira Systems. The resulting capability enables Apttus customers to use intelligent identification and extraction of data, reducing risk and accelerating contracting processes involving third-party agreements.

As the recognized leader in machine learning contract analysis, Kira has been proven to reduce the time to review third party contracts for standard business provisions by 30–90%. In order to meet corporate client demand for contract analysis, Kira Systems has built up a robust certified partner network who leverage Kira to help with projects including major diligence exercises, post-merger integration, regulatory reviews, and contract lifecycle management solution implementations. Together, Apttus and Kira Systems have partnered to create a unique set of capabilities for contract administrators and business managers to create and manage agreements using third-party paper.

Capabilities include:

  • Intelligent identification and extraction of data to reduce risk and accelerate contracting processes involving third-party agreements.
  • Built-for-purpose machine learning text analytics for contracts provides administrators, legal operations professionals, and contract managers with high-speed, hands-free ability that streamlines contract processes.
  • State-of-the-art capabilities for the end-to-end contract management process from creation, redlining and negotiation, to execution and activation, and the stages beyond.
  • Machine learning analysis tailored to specific corporate needs can be used interchangeably between Apttus and Kira platforms. Kira for legacy contract and bulk import projects; Apttus for third party contract review and negotiation.

“Enterprises have tons of contracts filled with valuable but hard-to-access information. Kira helps users extract better answers from contracts in much less time. We believe Kira should be available anywhere contracts reside, and so we dedicated resources last year to expanding our APIs. When we started speaking with the team at Apttus about this potential enhancement, we knew it was a great opportunity to help meet the increased demand by our corporate customers, both to use Kira for their large scale contract metadata extraction projects and on an on-going basis within Apttus as part of their existing workflow,” explains Noah Waisberg, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Kira Systems.

“This solution is a landmark achievement, borne of two industry leaders combining their advanced capabilities,” said Neehar Giri, co-founder and Chief Solutions Architect at Apttus. “By combining the machine intelligence of Kira Systems with the contract lifecycle management expertise of Apttus, together we can deliver savings and risk reduction to our customers. These new capabilities can create this value by lowering operational cost, accelerating contract cycle times, reducing errors and enabling reporting on the contents of third-party agreements. We are extremely excited about this new capability. It is a game changer for law departments and their business partners."
