Selectica and Seal Software Group Partner to Provide Contract Discovery and Faster Legacy Load

Partnership Will Allow Customers to Upload Enterprise-Wide Contracts Into Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management Quickly and Accurately

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - Selectica (NASDAQ: SLTC), a provider of software that accelerates sales cycles and streamlines contract processes, today announced that it has partnered with Seal Software Group, a provider of solutions to discover, capture, extract and manage contracts. The partnership will provide customers with a faster, more efficient way to load their organization-wide contracts into Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) and drive immediate value following implementation.

"Companies come looking for contract management tools when such issues as a lack of contract visibility, controls, and compliance become a liability," said Dan Daehler, Vice President of Global Services and Channels for Seal Software. "Our partnership with Selectica gives customers what they need to fully leverage legacy contracts and the corresponding contractual terms, aiding risk management while enabling visibility and reporting."

Using Selectica and Seal Software, enterprises with thousands of contracts that span the course of their organization's history will now be able to upload, extract, and map contracts and contract data from a number of different file and image types, and quickly load them into the Selectica Contract Lifecycle Management repository where they can be tracked, maintained, analyzed, and reported on.

"With their deep domain experience in enterprise software and global reach to a number of industries we cater to, partnering with Seal Software made perfect sense for us," said Jason Stern, President and CEO of Selectica. "Customers will now have all the tools they need to smooth the legacy load process, and an effective ongoing way to populate their contract repositories."

Working in tandem, Selectica and Seal Software give businesses the ability to:

  • Quickly find contracts in shared folders and document storage systems and make them searchable documents in a contract repository
  • Significantly increase upload speed for contracts entering the CLM system
  • Automatically extract key contract data, including information in embedded images or image files
  • Gain complete visibility into contract milestones, deliverables, expirations, and renewals
  • Streamline contract processes, from request, authoring, negotiation, and approval through ongoing obligations management, analysis, reporting, and renewals.
