The multinational information technology government contractor was facing the challenges of managing a critical legal process (Non-Disclosure Agreements with partners) through a completely manual process. Because the process was not automated and it dealt with multiple companies each with its own requirements, the company’s process was inconsistent and difficult to manage. The main objectives were to automate the process wherever possible, provide task tracking through emails and task lists, provide legal document comment tracking, and provide a consistent process that could be better managed.
After reviewing the customer’s manual process, i3solutions recommended it use the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Intranet for its foundation system. The NDAS system took a manual business process and automated it through the basic SharePoint Intranet functionality, InfoPath forms, and workflow services. The system handles the NDAS process from the initial contact, through contract negotiations, to the final signed contract. By leveraging the Microsoft SharePoint Server technology, the customer has an application built on a stable, proven technology which can be used for potential growth and increased functionality.
The NDAS system developed by i3solutions provides the company with the means to manage its non-disclosure agreement process through an automated and consistent process. In addition, this application has enhanced the company’s communication with its partners and improved its tracking capabilities.
