Welcome & Keynote: The Evolution of Contracting

Contract management has continued to evolve over the years and is now entering a new era of intelligence. Join Paul Branch, an industry expert with over 34 years of experience, and Jerry Ting, Evisort CEO, as they discuss how industry and the roles of contracting professionals have changed and what contract intelligence means for organizations today.  

Speakers: Jerry Ting, CEO at Evisort

Paul Branch, Chief Networking Officer at WorldCC

9:35am - 9:55am

Product Showcase: The Future of Contract Intelligence

Join our vision of contract intelligence as we shift the perception of contracts from obligations to objective data points. When every contract is datatized™, lean, agile teams can quickly perform like legal heavyweights that have carefully extracted data for years. Discover the power of contract intelligence today, as well as our visions of contract intelligence in the not-so-distant future. Join our vision as we continue to challenge the status quo.  

Speakers: Amine Anoun, CTO at Evisort

Jake Sussman, COO at Evisort

10:05am - 10:50am

The Next Generation of Contract Management

Introducing modern solutions within any company requires a lot of trust and cross-functional support, but when a modern solution can empower the entire organization, it’s worth the time and effort. We join industry experts from healthcare, real estate, and manufacturing to understand why they championed the next generation of contract management and why they’d never go back to legacy solutions. 

Speakers: Abhay Nadipuram, VP & General Counsel at Care Initiatives

Travis Somerville, VP of Procurement at Keller Williams

Abhay Nadipuram, VP & General Counsel at Care Initiatives

The Future of Contract Review

Delays during contracting due to poor visibility, missed emails, siloed teams, and unclear processes plague the industry and often result in legal teams being seen as business blockers. Visibility into contract data provides the foundational understanding to streamline contract reviews, and create the best first draft that’s likely to be signed faster with less friction - so you can finally contract at the speed of business.
