Customer and Market Momentum
Amid the commercial turbulence typified by COVID-19 and continuous change in the regulatory landscape, CLM has emerged as a must-have technology for companies of all sizes. CLM is no longer confined to siloed processes within the legal, procurement, or sales functions, but now informs decisions made by the entire C-suite. CLM is today the core system of intelligence to manage customer, supplier, partner, R&D, and employee contracts across the enterprise.
The ICI platform brings a new level of intelligence and transparency through innovative technologies such as AI and Blockchain which enable businesses to ensure accuracy and compliance across the entire contract lifecycle. That is why a growing list of iconic brands and disruptive innovators trust Icertis. On this momentum the Forrester report noted, “Rated as a leader in our 2019 CLM Forrester Wave, Icertis has attracted a long list of more than 200 high-profile clients, including Airbus, Cognizant, Daimler, Johnson & Johnson, and Microsoft.” In the last twelve months alone Icertis has announced significant wins, expansions, and implementations with incredible organizations from startups to global leaders including companies like Aldi, Auth0, Best Buy, Boeing, DATEV, Elkem, Humana, L’Oréal, Porsche, Regeneron, ServiceNow, and more.
