Digitize Legacy Contracts

Physical Legacy Contracts are a major issue for every enterprise around the globe. These physical documents are hard to keep track of and are spread across multiple repositories. Managing milestones, obligations & risks of all these contracts is a laborious manual task that can often lead to missed renewals or penalties. Digitize contracts for smooth contract management.

These days, most companies understand the need to transform these static agreements into digitized contracts, however, they are often overwhelmed by the digitization process. Traditionally, contracts were digitized by extracting all key metadata and manually importing all the data points present in the agreement. Nowadays, we have dedicated companies that assist you with the digitization process by having their teams manually go through all your contracts and transform them into digital format. However, this task can be extremely time-consuming and can cost thousands of dollars.

Volody’s AI smart digitization tool can help you import all your physical legacy contracts with a click of a button. Developed by our in-house data scientists, our smart tool lets you “bulk upload” all your documents with all your key meta-data and obligations.

In this blog below we will list out how you can digitize your contracts with “Volody’s smart digitize tool” or by professional legal services

Digitize agreements with Volody’s Digitization tool

1. Scan Agreements

Gather all your contracts together and scan them in a PDF format. It would be advisable to separate your agreements based on category or department by naming them accurately. Bring them all together and scan them in a clear visible format, making sure that all key texts in the agreement are legible. Scanning all your documents together in PDF format will allow you to bulk upload all your agreements in one go.

2. Store on a single system

Once you have scanned all your agreements and given the appropriate nomenclature, store them all on a single computing system or cloud file. Saving all your contracts on a single system lets you upload all these documents onto our system with ease without having to switch systems.

3. Upload documents

Our smart AI tool with Optical character recognition(OCR), digitizes all your agreements and pre-fills the appropriate data points and meta-data. Our tool has an accuracy of 90% so you might have to fill in some meta-data for contracts that our tool was unable to capture due to poor image quality.

4. Assign Responsibility

Once you have uploaded all contracts and accurately confirmed all the meta-data, the only step left is to assign each contract to the person responsible for all terms and obligations. You also have the option to map out the reminders each individual receives for their contracts. This feature ensures that you never miss out on any renewals or obligations and helps you maintain organization-wide compliance
