Contract Review and Approval

Accelerate contract workflows

Simplify and automate the contract review and approval process

From finance to legal, nearly every line of business touches contracts with clients, vendors and other stakeholders. However, legacy contract review and approval systems at many organizations limit productivity and have insufficient security. Not to mention they make it hard for teams to find, share and retain contracts. Using Box, contract collaborators can work out of a secure, centralized repository, which allows them to accelerate contract lifecycles, protect content security and meet compliance standards. Because you shouldn't have to worry about where your contract is or if it's secure — you should already be looking ahead to the next one.
