Weagree’s contract repository will be extended for storing emails along contracts. As a result, all email communications related to a contract will be saved alongside the Weagree contract entry (in that contract’s repository, both precontractual and post-signing in the CLM). If a dispute arises or otherwise clarity is needed, the emails for the related contract will then be accessible in Weagree within the contract properties (contract creation contract entry) and on a CLM contract sheet (of a managed contract).
Because there is also in-app collaboration (so communications among users in a questionnaire or contract, the communications so collected will consist of (a) contract-related emails, (b) in-app communications involving external parties (so the supplier, customer or partner), (c) in-app internal deliberations (so any discussions or clarifications among Weagree users involved in the transaction), and (d) all approval-related communications (so any soft conditions imposed in connection with an internal approval, or a clarification why a submitted request was rejected). The repository-inbox will show the email details as are also visible in Outlook.
In connection with a SharePoint-integration, the above feature will prove to be particularly powerful, as it is the last step to match the features available in generic DMS applications. To further accelerate saving from Outlook on SharePoint, an Outlook-embedded application such as Harmon.ie could be implemented.
