Legal as a Service Platform
for Venture Capital Investments
PACTA enables you to automate your legal processes with the help of artificial intelligence and monitor them in a data-driven way. Create intelligent legal communication channels on demand for your lawyers and investment targets and control your startups' contracts remotely.
Time is money. Especially in the context of venture capital investments this principle is decisive. You cannot and do not want to spend days or weeks dealing with legal bureaucracy. This is exactly where we come in.
Risk Minimisation & Growth Hack
Start-ups usually draw up and conclude contracts without legal advice or need a lot of time and money to manage the legal tasks. Investors, on the other hand, often only have access to these legal documents upon request.
With PACTA, your employees or lawyers can manage all the contractual processes of your start-ups on the fly. You define a legal framework in which your start-ups can move freely and enter these clauses once into the PACTA forms or the PACTA clause database. Your start-ups then access legally compliant contracts on demand and create them continuously within a few minutes.
In PACTA Analytics, your portfolio managers can also create reports within seconds, filter out specific contract values or clauses and check deadlines.
This eliminates an average of 75% of your startups' error sources and provides them with a legal toolbox to scale their business faster and more effectively than ever before.
Central legal management of your investments
Usually, you communicate with your start-ups and lawyers independently of each other.
PACTA brings your analysts, investors, lawyers and start-ups together on one platform and maps the right workflows for each internal and external stakeholder.
Thus, you create a uniform solution for all parties involved and optimise the entire life cycle of your investments from letter of intent to due diligence and exit.
Legal Knowledge Management
Your own text modules for LoI, NDAs and shareholder agreements are scattered across many different Word documents, which you search for and update individually.
With PACTA you develop automated forms for your entire company 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 and other pleadings within a few minutes. Update these text modules centrally in the clause database and our artificial intelligence "Themis" will automatically update all forms with the changed text modules (streamlining).
This way you increase your productivity as well as the processing volume of your employees by an average of 41%.
Optimising your collaboration and negotiations
You coordinate with your colleagues, lawyers and start-ups via endless email chains and hundreds of comments and negotiate Word or PDF documents in mark-up mode and circulation.
In 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 the contracting parties and consultants.
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.
All metadata and deadlines at a glance
Your legal analyses involve numerous trivial processes. Especially in due diligence, manually searching through legal documents and finding metadata, risks and deadlines is tedious and time-consuming. In addition, filtering your investment documents by specific properties or market segments is extremely time-consuming.
PACTA Analytics extracts all your contract data for you, presents it to you automatically in a searchable and customisable table and reminds you of contractual deadlines. This means you can produce audit reports on average 31% faster than before and never miss a deadline again.
Resource and cost savings
Concluding contracts by hand-signing, mailing and returning paper documents is not only time-consuming but also resource-intensive.
With PACTA, you can have your own and your start-ups' contracts digitally approved and signed within seconds, instead of waiting an average of two weeks for the documents 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.
Collaboratively create, negotiate, digitally sign and update legal documents, and analyse processes in a data-driven manner and make them available across organisations. Offer your employees, advisors and start-ups a complete Legal as Service package from due diligence to exit.

What exactly is meant by document automation?
Senior Sales Professional

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.
