Success Story

HEUKING EVB-IT contract

Use case

The Supplementary Contract Terms for the Procurement of Information Technology are the public sector's purchasing terms for IT services in Germany. With this and the two still valid Special Terms and Conditions of Contract for the Procurement of IT Systems and Equipment, almost the entire application spectrum of IT procurement in the public sector is covered.

The past

The use of the contract template has so far been very time-consuming and error-prone. The procurement contracts were compiled manually from the template by the person responsible (copy and paste). In some cases, a checklist was used with a lot of painstaking work.

The new approach

Dr. Schellenberg's team has automated the complete contract template. The user is guided through a catalogue of questions. He is only asked the questions which are relevant or become relevant based on his answers. Have a look at an early first version here:

Impact

Today, the contents of the template can easily be put together with just a few clicks. The user can keep track of the effects of the input. He guides himself through the answers to the appropriate contract with the relevant clauses. There is no need to work with separate checklists. The user benefits from an average time saving of 50% and more. The simple handling of the question-answer catalogue also ensures the quality of the contract design. Legal certainty in the use of the template is also increased

"We automated this template as one of the first automation products. For our clients, this means that in the future they will be able to generate the appropriate procurement contract themselves by answering the questionnaire. This is done quickly, reliably, individually and with the quality you have come to expect from us. The service is important to us and we are pleased when LAWLIFT enables us to make a big leap forward with our Legal Tech offers."
