Pagetech Partners with LegalSifter to Provide Artificial Intelligence Contract Review Solution to Clients in South Africa

August 18, 2020


Pagetech has partnered with LegalSifter to provide Pagetech's managed legal services clients with time efficient, quality legal advice and services. The Pagetech LegalSifter product brings the “combined intelligence” of LegalSifter’s artificial intelligence and Pagetech’s legal expertise together to offer a software-as-a-service subscription to attorneys and business professionals in the region.

Pagetech's legal team is exceptionally experienced in the commercial legal space across numerous industries including mining and engineering, facilities management and related services, market data, banking and many others. Clients stand to benefit significantly by accelerating the review of business-as-usual contracts, increasing compliance to corporate standards, and minimizing contractual risk. Pagetech has adapted LegalSifter to the South African jurisdiction and plans to adapt the software to other markets as well to meet the demands of their international client base.

With Pagetech LegalSifter, users simply upload a draft contract into the software. Sifters—software trained to read text and look for specific concepts—review the document in just a few seconds to a minute or two. In-context advice is offered, including alerts to the user to missing terms and conditions as well as existing provisions which are key to the negotiation. The product is available out-of-the-box with local requirements, legal best practices, and suggested language to support negotiations with the counterparty, all curated by Pagetech. Pagetech also offers a professional version of the product that is fully configurable to the specific negotiating position or corporate guidelines of the business. 

Clients will save 20-80% of the time that they normally spend reviewing draft contracts, freeing up time work on other activities to drive business growth.

“LegalSifter - It’s the type of disruptive technology that the Legal World has been waiting for and we are excited to be a part of it,” said Marco Ortelee, Director of Pagetech.

“As a first-mover in South Africa, Pagetech is ahead of the long-term transformative trend that is the combination of AI and people in legal services. We are lucky to have Marco and the team as partners and thank them for their leadership,” said Kevin Miller, CEO of LegalSifter.
