Microsoft Envision and Ignite, Orlando, FL -- September 25, 2017 -- Icertis, the leading provider of enterprise contract management in the cloud, today introduced the Icertis Experience for Microsoft Teams, an innovative approach that transforms how organizations interact with their contracts from within Microsoft's hub for Teamwork in Office 365. The launch expands the portfolio of enterprise applications that can surface contract data, tasks, and insights from the Icertis Contact Management (ICM) platform through Icertis Experiences.
Icertis Experiences empower users to create, view, approve, manage and collaborate on contracts in the tools and applications they use every day. Icertis Experiences go beyond simple data integration between enterprise applications, and express the power of the ICM platform within the end user's application of choice including in leading CRM, ERP, sourcing, procurement, pricing, productivity and collaboration applications.
"The additional capabilities that Icertis Experiences brings to Microsoft Teams transforms collaboration on contracts, taking contract management to the next level," said Nagi Prabhu, Chief Product Officer at Icertis. "The combination of the ICM platform and Teams reimagines how everyone who touches a contract within a company can collaborate, negotiate, execute, and manage agreements to optimize the value of their commercial relationships."
"Our goal at Microsoft is to empower every person and organization with technology to be more productive as individuals and in groups," said Bhrighu Sareen, General Manager, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Corp. "Microsoft Teams hub for teamwork in Microsoft Office 365, combined with the Icertis platform, will help foster better collaboration and allow users to manage tasks in their preferred application, eliminating the friction of having to toggle between enterprise applications to perform a single task."
Icertis Experiences Boost Productivity, Improve Decision Making
The proliferation of enterprise applications within a company forces end users to constantly switch between user interfaces to complete even simple tasks. According to the American Psychological Association, such context switching can cost as much as 40 percent of a user's productive time.
Leveraging ICM's artificial intelligence and natural language processing, Icertis Experiences enables users to interact with the ICM platform in the applications where they spend the majority of their time. This gives them better access to critical information enabling better business decisions, without switching applications.
"As users look to keep pace with the increasing speed of business, they want to accomplish all their tasks in the enterprise application most applicable to their role," said Samir Bodas, Co-founder and CEO of Icertis. "By surfacing insight and enabling action on all aspects of contracting, including drafting, negotiations, and managing entitlements and obligations in their enterprise application of choice, Icertis Experiences enable individuals and teams to improve their decision making and thread contract management into their day-to-day job as appropriate."
