-- Strong Investment in Research and Development has Enabled Disruptive Software Company to Emerge at the Forefront of Contract Intelligence Management
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 25, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Seal Software, the leading provider of Contract Discovery and Analytics solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as the Gold winner in the "Most Innovative Company of the Year (Small)" category by the 2015 Best in Biz Awards International, the only independent global business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. Seal Software, based in San Francisco, with offices in New York, London and Gothenburg, Sweden, has more than doubled its revenues and headcount each year since it was founded in 2010.
"Seal Software was founded on a philosophy of innovation, and we've maintained heavy investment in research and development in order to provide a unique solution to the growing contract discovery and intelligence market," said Ulf Zetterberg, CEO of Seal Software. "Receiving this award just a month shy of our fifth anniversary is a testament to our commitment to R&D, as well as the dedication of our employees, leadership team and advisors to exceed customer expectations. Our focus remains on providing our customers with a platform that allows them to dramatically change how they meet regulatory requirement mandates, manage their risk, and fully understand what terms, obligations and incentives are contained in their contracts."
As an example of its aggressive investment in innovation, Seal Software recently received patent approval for its "Non-Standard Clauses Detection" technology from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The patented technology plays a key role in helping customers quickly identify non-standard contractual terms based on customer-defined boundaries.
Seal Software uses document structuration and machine learning models and methods, combined with natural language processing technology to automatically discover, analyse and report on the upwards of tens of thousands of contracts that can exist throughout an organization. The software provides the contractual insights that would normally take expert legal teams hours of tedious work to unearth, reducing months and weeks of manual processes to just hours or minutes.
As the Gold winner in the "Most Innovative Company of the Year (Small)" category, Seal Software was recognized for its work in enabling companies to maximize revenue opportunities, reduce operational expenditures, address costly compliance issues and facilitate smoother M&A.
More than 250 public and private companies from more than 30 countries competed in the third annual Best in Biz Awards International program, which honors companies in a wide range of categories and industry sectors. Inclusion is considered a high honor because only members of the press and industry analysts are invited to serve as judges and determine the award winners.
