Contract management for banks

With PACTA, you scale the distribution of your loans and investment products even faster, more efficiently and more sustainably.

BENEFITS

Time is money. This principle is particularly important in banking. Neither your employees nor your customers can or want to spend days or weeks dealing with legal bureaucracy. This is exactly where PACTA comes in.

1

One central core system for legal processes

A contract requires at least two people. However, there are many more people who have a point of contact in the lifecycle of legal documents. The parties involved usually communicate independently of each other by e-mail or even by exchanges of letters. Individual processes thus have to be forwarded, correlated, discussed and released many times.

With PACTA, you bring your departments and customers together on one platform and map the right workflows for each internal and external stakeholder. PACTA allows you to have all legal processes managed on a single platform by subject matter experts and the legal department and implemented by your customer service representatives.

This way, you create a unified solution for all stakeholders and optimize the entire lifecycle of your customer relationships, from the first inquiry until termination.

2

Automation of recurring processes

The prevailing contract processes in banking involve numerous manual operations. With PACTA, you can automate the digitization of paper documents, document creation, releases and approvals, extraction of contract data and deadline management. You can individualize your standardized customer contracts and any confidentiality agreements in less than 5 minutes. As a result, you save an average of 44% of the working time spent over the entire lifecycle of your customer relationships.

3

Scalable contract processes on demand

Commercial loan agreements are currently concluded within 70 days on average. However, the time required to coordinate individual contract parameters with the contractual partner is often only a few hours. The devourers of time are administrative activities and inefficient document creation and processing. With PACTA you solve exactly this problem. Only once, business and legal departments define the required contract forms and legal processes. The client advisers can then access these workflows permanently on demand and initiate the closing process immediately, independently and directly. Reduce your absolute negotiation time by 52% and increase your average contract volume by 25%.

4

Legal security with maximum agility

In order to shorten the conclusion of loans and investment products without contract management, client advisers often individualize customer contracts themselves and without legal counsel. This often results in legal errors or ambiguous clauses. With PACTA, your legal department manages the entire legal sales process without being overloaded with simple recurring tasks. As a result, you create more legal certainty and eliminate an average of 75% of the sources of errors in your documents. Department heads and the legal department can determine in advance a legal framework within which your client advisory service can operate without further coordination. If individual contract clauses exceed this framework, an automated release and approval process starts. You and your legal team stay in control of your documents at all times, while ensuring maximum agility in your customer relationships.

5

Optimization of your contract negotiations

If contract negotiations become necessary, they usually consist of endless e-mail chains and editing word documents in markup mode as well as hundreds of comments.  With PACTA, you negotiate and edit contracts together with all parties in real time. As a result, you halve both the number of your negotiation steps and your absolute negotiation time.

6

Digitalization of their paper contracts

We understand that not all banks and companies work with digital documents yet. The step to digitization is not always easy and often requires good change management. We have approached this problem and came up with a solution as easy as possible for you. PACTA comes with automated text recognition (OCR) software that automatically turns simple scans into readable PDF documents. This way digitization reaches you sooner and easier than you expected.

7

Sustainability and customer satisfaction

Concluding contracts by handwritten signatures, mailing and returning paper documents is not only time-consuming but also resource-intensive. With PACTA Signature, you sign your documents within seconds instead of waiting an average of two weeks for a contract to be returned. This increases customer satisfaction by an average of 80%. Protect the environment and save costs. For example, a medium-sized company would save an average of almost 300,000 pages of paper, 4.3 tons of wood and 1.5 tons of CO2 per year.

FAQ

What exactly is meant by document automation?

Michael Czapla

Senior Sales Professional

How does document analysis work?

Arthur Gogohia

Data Scientist

For our automated extraction of relevant information from documents, we rely on state-of-the-art deep learning architectures. In the first step, a specially trained neural network recognizes important parts within a document. In the second step, our algorithms process this information into insightful findings. In the third step, the data is sorted and clearly presented on the platform.

How does automatic text recognition work for documents?

Jeffry Cacho

Data Scientist

We achieve automated extraction of text from scans in two steps. First we use image processing algorithms to optimize the quality of the scans. Our customized deep learning model then detects existing text in the image with pixel precision and converts it into digital text. This makes scans searchable and eliminates the need to manually type out the text.
