"AI contract reviewer for sales teams"
Docsum is an AI contract reviewer for sales teams. With Docsum, sales teams don't have to wait for their lawyer to respond to redlines on a contract, they can do it themselves.
Founded by Shaunak Turaga & Alex Leonov. Shaunak has experience as a developer and product manager at Pacaso, OpenTrack, and Capital One. Alex has experience as a developer and architect at Pacaso and Fidelity. They worked on growth and global expansion while at Pacaso. The team is focused on building an eco-system of tooling which includes an app, native Word + Google plugins, and email integrations where legal and sales teams work.
Reviewing sales contracts and responding to customer redlines is expensive, time-consuming, and hard to manage. Smaller organizations don’t have the budget for external legal spend, and larger teams are bottlenecked by complex workflows. The team have experienced the challenges with sales contracting as previous founders, and are on a mission to help sales teams close deals faster and save money on their legal spend.

🟥 Sales teams often own the contracting process from reviewing NDAs to sending out MSAs. Sales teams are motivated to respond to clients quickly and reduce their time to close but their ability to review and respond to contract redlines is contingent on collaboration with their legal counsel. This process can be expensive, time consuming, and hard to manage.
🟥 For smaller teams, basic contract review and contract negotiation services with external counsel can be incredibly expensive and time consuming.
🟥 For larger organizations, in-house counsels are burdened by high matter volumes that often position them as bottlenecks within sales cycles.
