You love to redline contracts in Microsoft Word.
You’re not alone, and no, we’re not reading the stars—just the results of an online poll of 750+ contracts professionals from contract redlining star Nada Alnajafi, founder of Contract Nerds and author of Contract Redlining Etiquette.
91% of contracting named Microsoft Word as their preferred redlining tool for negotiating contracts.
And the other 9%? They’re probably just too proud to admit it.
In either case, when your favorite tool works, why should you have to change it? As the age-old saying goes, “If it ain’t unenforceable, don’t fix it.”
…that’s how it goes, right?
Our new Lexion for Word add-in makes your favorite contract redlining tool even better.
Redlining and Word go together like peanut butter and jelly. Lexion for Word makes that peanut butter super smooth. Unless you’re into chunky peanut butter, of course; then we’ll make yours extra crunchy.
Going from reviewing in Lexion to redlining in Word is as simple as the click of a button. Lexion for Word will automatically open a copy of the contract in Microsoft Word—mac, Windows, and even if you prefer to use Word in your browser.
Simply make your changes and click “Save as new version.” Lexion takes care of the rest.
Just managing multiple drafts and versions of contracts inside your CLM can be a headache in itself: Download it. Revise it. Rename it. Re-save it. Relocate it. Re-upload it. And do it over and over until you and your counterparty (or counterparties) are happy with it.
It can be a headache, but it doesn’t have to be.
Lexion for Word makes it easy to manage drafts by handling the versioning for you. When you save a contract draft in Word, Lexion for Word automatically uploads your document as a new version in Lexion, where the rest of your team can find the latest draft with ease.
Speaking of teamwork, Lexion for Word makes collaborating with your team to accelerate contracting simple. Lexion can alert stakeholders automatically whenever a new draft is uploaded to keep contracts moving.
Better still, you can always click to jump from Word back to Lexion for task status, message history, activity logs and more. With Lexion for Word, everybody knows what’s happening with a contract or task.
Need to get multiple eyes on a draft? Lexion for Word lets you know when other members of your team are reviewing the contract, too, so nobody steps on toes.
