Bitrise is a global mobile DevOps platform

Bitrise serves more than 100,000 developers at over 6,000 mobile organizations worldwide. Their mobile DevOps platform helps organizations from small open source developer teams to global financial institutions and tech unicorns to develop apps faster, better, and more efficiently.

The company tripled its headcount in the past two years, opened several new offices around the globe, and announced in November 2021 that it had secured $60 million in Series C funding. That kind of meteoric growth comes with its own set of challenges.

Early-stage processes were in need of upgrade or replacement for the Bitrise legal team to support the needs of the growing company

With Bitrise doubling its revenue year over year, the need for strategic legal support across every facet of the company—and the means to manage an exploding volume of contracts—has never been greater.

Bitrise’s in-house legal team determined that to provide responsive, strategic support, the company required a streamlined contract management system to solve for several key pain points, including:

  1. Tedious administrative tasks like manually saving signed contracts to a separate drive after execution and data entry in spreadsheets were eating up valuable time that could be better spent on more strategic work;
  2. Lack of a centralized repository unnecessarily increased the time it took to fulfill contract requests, such as managing renewals and reporting on risk; and 
  3. Poor search capabilities across contracts meant contracts had to be reviewed manually.

Lexion significantly improved the Bitrise legal team’s speed and efficiency

Bitrise wanted a contract management system with fast and accurate AI to file and organize its high volume of contracts automatically, an intuitive platform for organization and reporting, and integrations with the company’s existing systems and workflows.

Check, check, and check.

With Lexion’s AI-powered Repository, Bitrise saw almost instant results:

  • Cutting-edge AI quickly parses and files agreements automatically, eliminating tedious manual work.
  • Full-text search makes finding key contract language and other information a breeze.
  • Powerful insights and reporting help Bitrise know what’s in their contracts in minutes, not days or weeks. 

Lexion’s simple integrations with key business systems improve coordination and collaboration with other teams.

  • Integration with DocuSign means new contracts are ingested and filed within minutes of signing, so Bitrise always has an accurate view of the company’s total legal picture.
  • Integration with Salesforce lets sales keep working in the systems they know best while also interfacing seamlessly with legal.
“A very high priority for our department is to provide proactive support to close deals and propel further growth. With Lexion dramatically reducing the administrative load of day-to-day legal operations, our team is empowered to be the agile, strategic and data-driven business partner we want to be.”

Bitrise does more valuable work in less time with Lexion

With Lexion as a key system, the Bitrise legal team meets the challenges associated with its rapid growth, including handling ever-multiplying volumes of contract-related requests while also decreasing time spent fielding and answering contract-related requests.

“We’re able to respond quickly while maintaining focus on helping teams across the organization to think through both business and legal issues to structure the organization for long-term growth.”
– Timothy Higginson, VP of Legal at Bitrise

This has meant the ability to plan for the future of the department, too. In 2022 and 2023, Bitrise is expanding its in-house legal team with multiple new positions across two continents.
