Seal Software Awarded Patent for Non-Standard Clause Detection Technology Featured in Contract Analytics Platform

Patented Technology Drives Contract Visibility and Analytics for Complete Contract Management

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Software, the leading provider of Contract Discovery and Contract Analytics solutions, today announced that it has received patent approval for its "Non-Standard Clauses Detection" technology from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The patented technology plays a key role in helping customers quickly identify non-standard contractual terms, and is currently available via Seal Software's Contract Analytics platform.

This patent approval is an important milestone for Seal Software as it expands its leadership position in the growing contract discovery and analytics market. Seal Software's Contract Analytics platform allows customers to gain better visibility and control of their contract portfolios; enabling organizations to select and/or customize policies for search and extraction based on several levels, while continually learning and creating reusable content for forward-moving analytics.

"While locating standard terms and conditions using machine learning algorithms or methods can be simple, identifying non-standard clause definitions has historically been more difficult, until now," said Kevin Gidney, founder and CTO, Seal Software. "We created the non-standard clause detection technology using our experience with differing detection methods and technologies to create a simplified process, utilizing many advanced functions and learning algorithms. Our goal with this advanced technology was to place more power in customer's hands in a simplistic, user-friendly way."

With the ability to quickly and easily detect non-standard clauses, general counsel, legal process outsourcing providers (LPOs) and legal firms are able to focus search and extraction efforts on critical, non-standard items, providing faster, more effective service to partners, clients and vendors. Without this advanced technology, identifying non-standard clause definitions presents a significant challenge, requiring lawyers to ascertain the relevance of contractual terms subjectively, and review all clauses or randomly selected samples, regardless of if they are well known, low risk or standard. Additionally, with companies deploying Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM) systems and clause libraries, a majority of these items could be excluded. Seal's non-standard clause detection technology performs this automatically, allowing end users to focus efforts on non-standard language for a significantly expedited search and analysis process and lower overall cost.
