contract data & document management. Done Right.

Challenge

Enterprises hold large numbers of documents containing important data and contractual terms. These documents are typically unstructured, often originating from paper based scans and are spread across the organisation in various data stores. Getting accurate data from these documents is expensive and time consuming. Maintaining it in a usable manner is harder still.

OTC Derivatives

The Over The Counter (OTC) Derivatives market is underpinned by bespoke bilateral agreements that govern the terms of trading.

The importance of this market to the global economy came into sharp relief during the financial crisis when the complex web of interdependencies and in particular counterparty risk was exposed by the failure of Lehman Brothers and near failure of a number of other key banks.

One of the key aspects of this is in unlocking the contractual terms tied up in millions of paper-based contracts, terms which are designed to remove legal uncertainties and provide mechanisms to mitigate counterparty risk.

Financial Services

Trading environments require up-to-date, accurate information while regulation has forced financial institutions to provide better protection against counterparty risk and increase the transparency of their contracts.

Banking requirements vary widely from trading agreements through to orderly crisis resolution, client segregation and protection against proprietary trading.

Unreliable data continues to cost banks Millions in mis-priced trades, dispute resolution and ongoing operational effort.

Other Industries

All industry sectors rely on contract and document based data, tied up in image based scans.

The challenges of up-to-date, accurate data are the same for insurance and pharmaceuticals as for banking.

While technically possible, most organisations have not yet moved to a paper free world, with ‘wet-ink’ signatures still prevailing as the most common mechanism for contractual agreements.

Being able to use a single view across digital formal and image (paper) format is essential for operational efficiency.

No more filling out spreadsheets to tell you whether a document contains a particular data point. No more printing documents and highlighting what you need. No more duplication of effort, or blindly using inaccurate information. Just usable, reportable, integrated, trusted data. We thought of that world too, that’s why we created Lyncs.
