Problem Faced by Client

Cipla Medpro had an urgent need to organize thousands of their most critical buy side and sell side agreements related addendums. In addition, to get meaningful insight, they needed to mine tens of thousands of data elements from these documents, all within a short timeframe. Managing this challenging task with their own team of skilled attorneys was not a viable option for them. It would have meant highly skilled staff spending a significant amount of time performing tedious manual searching, cutting, and pasting. On the other hand, they were apprehensive about choosing an external vendor due to security concerns and the in-house skills required for management and oversight of the project. Cipla Medpro embarked on an extensive market study for a solution provider with a proven track record and found Brightleaf Solutions.
