Why do we call our solution “smart”? Integral to the Matrix Enterprise architecture is a core rules engine that “makes decisions” on how to navigate through a business process and how to construct the necessary contract, given its described characteristics. Companies have long needed a way to guarantee each legal agreement is composed correctly according to business policy, is complete, and includes no conflicting statements. Usually this desire is met by managing policy across departmental personnel, with periodic, follow-on audits. Using creative techniques, CLM Matrix has mastered the ability for process/policy administrators to enter such business policy into the “brain” whereby it is then guaranteed to be fully adhered to and governed. With this, it is easy to understand why our solution is called the “Matrix”: The rules engine implements business policy by controlling and driving business process, document creation, clause insertion, routing/approval, notifications, alerts, assignments, and escalations.
