Part 1: What contract formats do you use at Lynden?

Top companies worldwide have contracts in all formats, including DOC, PNG, JPG, PDFs, and yes, even physical paper copies. You might even have the same contract in different formats. Having your contracts spread across so many varying formats can lead to things potentially falling between the cracks.

Here, Kevin will explain how Lyden benefits from Zendoc bringing some much-needed order to their contract management system.

Part 2: What pain points did Zendoc solve for you?

One of the critical issues with improper contract management is having large numbers of contracts scattered across various departments and having each department working with the same third party. This issue can easily lead to miscommunication or things being inadvertently overlooked.

In this video, Kevin talks about how Lynden now stores all of their contracts in a centralized location using Zendoc and improved interdepartmental work.

Part 3: Will Artificial Intelligence replace contract managers?

People should view AI as a means to an end, not an end itself. Zendoc’s AI is here to help your team do their jobs better, not do their jobs for them.
