Keep CALM and Contract

Keep CALM and Contract On™, Says Cimplifi: Contract Management Best Practices

I usually change up my titles for the blog posts I cover of others, but this one is so good, I had to use it as is. The latest post from Cimplifi tells us to Keep CALM and Contract On™.

What does that even mean? Well, you may know that, in the 1930’s, the British government created the now ubiquitous poster that reads, “Keep Calm and Carry On,” as a motivational message for the people of Great Britain as they were preparing to enter World War II.  Today, you can find riffs of that original poster in every tourist stop and shopping mall across the world.

When Cimplifi launched its contract analytics and lifecycle management practice, they abbreviated the words to an acronym they used internally at Cimplifi, called CALM™. Naturally, it didn’t take very long for our team to start using the phrase, Keep CALM and Contract On™. Heck, they even trademarked both terms!


As they discuss in their post, “the market is really coming around to acknowledging that contract analytics and lifecycle management are two halves of a full circle, and we formed the CALM practice because of this market opportunity.”

With so many events impacting an organization’s contracts these days, contract analytics and lifecycle management technology has become a critical need for those organizations to address those events quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively. And it might even enable their legal departments to keep calm (lower case, so no trademark needed… 😉 ).

So, what does CALM™ entail? And how can you get a great report that discusses the market need and desire to automate contracting and how the process can be accelerated through the similarities to eDiscovery?
