ContractExpress DealBuilder is an enterprise class, web-based document assembly platform optimized for the efficient creation of legal documents from automated templates. Capable of scaling from simple forms and letters to the most complex legal documents, it is proven to meet the exacting needs of premium global law firms and corporations.

ContractExpress DealBuilder enables organizations to automate a wide range of their model documents, precedents or forms to reduce the time it takes for lawyers and non-lawyers to generate the first draft of a document. A user friendly template design tool ensures that unlike any other document assembly platform, lawyers and business users can create templates in Microsoft Word rather than relying on specialist document assembly programmers. ContractExpress DealBuilder enables templates of any complexity to be automated more easily and more quickly than with any other document assembly software. The ContractExpress DealBuilder system is built on technology standards including Microsoft .Net, Microsoft Office, Open XML, JavaScript and REST.

The ContractExpress DealBuilder difference

ContractExpress DealBuilder has a world-class and patented rules engine which determines which relevant questions need to be asked to create a complete and trusted document. ContractExpress questionnaires are created automatically from your ContractExpress templates, eliminating the need to create complex scripted dialogs and forms as with other document assembly solutions.

    Intelligent Interactive questionnaire content

    ContractExpress DealBuilder automatically produces the web based questionnaire forms for each template.

The unique approach dramatically speeds up the creation of templates and enables the automation of complex document sets that traditional systems can’t manage.

  • icn_document_view


    In DocumentView, users can see updates to the document as they are made in real time. The ability to visually associate changes made in the questionnaire with their effects in the document makes drafting a more fluid and efficient process. DocumentView also simplifies training for new users and allows for greater document ownership.
