Agiloft Ranked a Top Vendor in 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Contract Life Cycle Management (CLM)

Agiloft positioned in top three across all four use cases for CLM by Gartner in its 2021 Critical Capabilities report

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., June 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Agiloft, the global standard in no-code contract lifecycle management (CLM), today announced its recognition as a top vendor for the second year in a row in the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Contract Life Cycle Management.* This year, 13 vendors were evaluated by research and advisory firm Gartner and Agiloft once again ranked among the top across all four use cases identified in the CLM analysis: Procurement, Sales, Legal, and Enterprise.

As the second Critical Capabilities report for contract life cycle management produced by Gartner, this is an essential companion to the 2021 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contract Life Cycle Management, in which Agiloft was recognized as a Leader. The 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities report provides deeper analysis into each provider’s products and service offerings to determine which are a best fit for the most common contract management use cases.

Based on research that includes product demonstrations, vendor surveys, verified customer feedback from Gartner Peer Insights, and interacting with key industry contacts as well as end users, Gartner rigorously analyzed the leading usage scenarios for the products or services in the market, then identified and compared the most critical capabilities to help create a vendor shortlist for evaluation.

For its analysis of CLM, Gartner identified four use cases—Procurement, Sales, Legal, and Enterprise—with 12 critical capabilities. Agiloft scored consistently well across all use cases, receiving highest scores for requesting a contract, running standard reports, and enabling sales workflows.

As stated in the Gartner report, “Contract life cycle management (CLM) continues to be a high priority technology investment for midsize and large enterprise organizations. Gartner experienced a 40% increase in CLM inquiry volume in 2020 in the midst of a global pandemic.” The report also states, “Application leaders responsible for CLM can use this research to differentiate between vendor capabilities and shortlist vendors most suitable for their organizational needs.”

“We are thrilled to be ranked again as one of the top vendors in the Gartner Critical Capabilities report,” said Eric Laughlin, Agiloft CEO. “CLM is increasingly being viewed as pivotal in helping businesses across industries increase sales, drive efficiencies, and reduce security and compliance risk. We believe the unmatched configurability of our user-friendly platform is the differentiator for businesses dedicated to digitizing contracts, while our continuous product development and commitment to implementation success ensure long-lasting satisfaction for our customers.”

As the only no-code CLM platform that also provides open AI capabilities, Agiloft integrates with enterprise systems and is easily extensible to the commercial processes adjacent to contracts, allowing organizations to simplify the intake and organization of existing contracts and to customize the most complex workflows—all without writing a single line of code.
