AODocs Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) is a tool that lets you streamline and automate your processes throughout the entire lifecycle of your contract: creation, approval, negotiation, signature, ongoing management and renewals.

Internal entities correspond to the entities within your organization, such as parent companies and subsidiaries.

External entities correspond to the contracting parties you interact with outside your organization, such as customers, suppliers, or individual people.
