Document automation

Contract Express features

Quickly build complete and accurate documents with Thomson Reuters Contract Express document automation software

Automate your document creation

Contract Express has the features you need to streamline your process and build complete, accurate legal documents.

Contract Express Author

Create common clauses and terms that can be instantly shared across all templates. This proprietary authoring tool is designed for attorneys, as opposed to programmers or coding experts, eliminating the need to hire third-party template vendors.

Self service document creation

Our intuitive, web-based forms are created from templates, called questionnaires. They make self-service, signature-ready document creation easy for both internal and external users.

Customizable approval workflow in sequence or in parallel

Leverage a flexible approval process so multiple departments can review simultaneously or in sequence. Notifications and status alerts are automatically sent via email and are accessible from the task inbox in Contract Express.

Negotiator Word® add-on

Create a streamlined negotiation process and a safe and easy way to compare documents received from a counterparty.

Searchable document repository

Filter customizable data points and system-generated data to quickly locate relevant documents. Query the body of the document using our Boolean search box. Create custom datasheets organized within specific templates for quick visibility, and then download data into Microsoft® Excel.

Data analytics

Quickly grasp business insights with our analytics dashboard. Capture key usage data to assist your team in monitoring approval deadlines, analyzing template usage, and knowing where contracts are potentially stalling.

What our customers are saying

Contract Express was so fast, easy, and user friendly. That’s why we fell in love with it and abandoned HotDocs immediately.
The benefits are clear. Document automation allows us to quicken the pace at which we produce documents while maintaining quality and mitigating risk.
We wanted to imaginatively and smartly meet our clients’ needs by bringing together people, process, and technology. Document automation is a key enabling technology to do this.
