Cruise Control for Contracts

Get your basic legal agreements sorted with our intuitive chat function (no more messing around in Word documents). Our platform integrates with DocuSign, so once your agreements are sent out for signature and signed, they automatically return and sit as structured data sets on your stakeholder map and due diligence report. Welcome to the new reality for startup legals.
