client lifecycle management
for law firms, lawyers and notaries
PACTA turns your law firm into a legal tech provider and enables new business models and passive income. Provide your clients with automated legal services on demand or manage their legal processes remotely (Legal as a Service).
Time is money. This principle is particularly relevant in legal consulting, but no longer only in the context of hourly-based billing of lawyers. Today's clients no longer want to wait days or weeks for legal bureaucracy. Through legal tech providers, they are getting used to receiving the legal service they want within minutes. Law firms are being forced to catch up in order to remain competitive in the long run.This is exactly where PACTA comes in.
Central Knowledge Management
Recurring text modules are distributed over many different Word documents of various editors, which you have to search for and update individually.
With PACTA, you can develop automated forms for the entire office based on your own templates and drafts. You enter your text modules once into the PACTA forms or the PACTA clause database and then continuously create perfectly formatted drafts of your contracts, lawsuits and other pleadings within a few minutes. Update these text modules centrally in the clause database and it will automatically update all forms with the changed text modules (Streamlining).
Thus, you increase your productivity as well as the processing volume of your employees by an average of 41%.
Optimization of your client communication
You coordinate with your colleagues, clients and the opposing side by endless e-mail sequences and hundreds of comments, and edit Word documents in markup mode and by circulation.
With PACTA you offer your clients a repertoire of modern digital legal services. In the PACTA collaboration room, you negotiate and edit your documents together with all parties in real time. This halves both the number of negotiation steps and the time needed to coordinate with your clients.
In addition, PACTA records all processing procedures, approvals and signatures in an audit-proof manner and makes them available to you in a complete audit trail.
Modern business models and passive income
As an attorney, you must actively generate revenue for your firm by charging for hours worked or state-regulated billing rates. The possibility to generate passive income is thus denied to you.
PACTA can be integrated into your law firm website as a white label solution with the look and feel of your brand. By using PACTA forms and workflows to retrieve data, facts and documents from your clients and to automatically create, approve and sign your legal documents, your law firm becomes a "legal tech provider".
Your clients can flexibly access an on-demand offer at any time without loss of quality and you generate passive income. In addition, PACTA enables you to remotely manage all legal processes and full compliance for your clients.
Virtual assistance for analysis and monitoring
Manually searching through legal documents and finding contract data, risks and deadlines is tedious and time-consuming.
Monitor the topicality, correctness and plausibility of your clients' contract content with the help of metadata and deadline extraction including a reminder function through our artificial intelligence "Themis". This allows you to prepare legal opinions 31% faster on average than before.
Client satisfaction and protection against loss of market share
Legal processes are perceived by many participants in the business market as slow and disproportionately expensive. While more and more automated processes are becoming established among clients, the legal profession often remains stuck in the old tried and tested way of working. This is the reason why the predicted market share of alternative legal service providers (legal tech platforms) will increase to more than 20% by 2025.
Protect your law firm from losing market share and position yourself even better against competing law firms. Provide your legal services to your clients in the most modern way. Thus, client satisfaction increases by an average of 80% through PACTA.
Resource and cost savings
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.
In so doing you can also 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.
Digitisation of your paper documents
We understand that not all companies and law firms are yet using digital documents or electronic files. The step to digitization is not always easy and often requires good change management..
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.
Client Lifecycle Management
Collaboratively create, negotiate, digitally sign and update legal documents as well as analyse processes in a data-driven manner and make them available across organisations. Offer your clients a complete Legal as Service package from initial advice to ongoing compliance activities.

What exactly is meant by document automation?
Senior Sales Professional
With PACTA, you can automate more than just the creation of contracts. Rather, with PACTA you can automate all your legal operations holistically. From upload to draft, approval, signature, data extraction and deadline management - with PACTA you automate the entire lifecycle of legal documents.
How does document analysis work?
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?
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.
