Introducing internal/public mode

By Concord Editorial   Nov 9, 2020

Contract negotiations can be frustrating. Redlining, emailing back-and-forth, getting internal approvals — all of this takes time away from growing your business.

There’s a better way

Negotiations don’t have to be painful. Concord’s strong negotiation tools streamline the whole process, saving you time and energy. And now, those tools just got better.

Introducing internal/public mode from Concord — the first and only contract management platform to enable private, internal-only redlining and collaboration during negotiations.

Unlike other contract management platforms, Concord lets you create an internal version of your contract even after it’s been shared with a counterparty. The result is better collaboration and seamless negotiation.

Work privately on your documents

Let’s say you are negotiating with a customer on a Master Service Agreement. You need your Finance and Sales Ops teams to review the pricing, your Legal team to review the liability cap, and your Product team to review the Statement of Work.

With Concord’s new internal mode, you can “lock” the contract from any external changes while you collaborate with your internal teams. Redline, make comments, and finalize your version right on Concord, without alerting your customer.

Public mode

When you’re ready for your customer to review the updated version, Concord makes it easy to “unlock” and share your contract. No need to email an updated version. Concord’s new public mode lets you publish and alert your customer in just one click.

Total version control

Concord automatically keeps track of every change — both in internal and public modes — so you can always look back to see what has changed and who made the changes.
