Get To Value Faster
With Customizable Implementation

A great CLM is only as powerful as how widely it is adopted. And whether it’s self-serve or built out by a technical team, your CLM implementation serves as the cornerstone for successful adoption. A well-executed implementation will both streamline your current contract management needs and establish a strong foundation for them as your business scales. A poor one will only slow you down.

"Michi was fantastic—really on top of everything. The workflows we were trying to build were complex. Michi kept his patience with us throughout the whole thing, guiding us in the right direction when we were going the wrong way. Even with that ultra-condensed timeline, Michi was available for us."

"We didn’t have an efficient way to keep track of redlines, or have any real process for version control. So I didn’t have a choice but to get going as soon as I possibly could. The Ironclad team was fantastic to work with, and Self-Start was so easy to implement."

Shannon Davidson

VP of Corporate Affairs and General Counsel



Customize your implementation to meet your needs

Every business has different CLM requirements. Our Legal Engineers work closely with you to craft a deployment plan that meets your specific business objectives, including: 

  • Ensuring integrations with your existing tools are correctly set up
  • Advising on the most relevant best practices for your use case 

"The sky's the limit once you master Ironclad. It's very intuitive so it was easy to implement and learn."

Choose a partner, not just a vendor

At Ironclad, we understand that successful software implementation is about trust as much as it is about technology. That’s why we: 

  • Think about deployment as only the first step in our partnership with customers 
  • Aim for long-term outcomes while continuously improving processes with your feedback 

"The team at Ironclad has been such collaborative, amazing partners. They really listen to what our problems are and are so proactive in helping us solve these new challenges."

Ironclad Implementation Packages


CLM Self-Start

This activation experience enables you to self-launch quickly. You’ll leverage preloaded workflows in your instance,  in-product guides, self-serve education, and community resources during our streamlined implementation path. Self-start works best for a team with implementation experience that feels confident relying on guided materials.

CLM Guide

This basic package focuses on rapidly guiding you on how to configure Ironclad to launch a workflow. It works best for teams who have their contracting processes mapped out and are looking for a collaborative configuration approach to create a workflow foundation.

CLM Assist

This mid-tier implementation option allows the co-configuring of Ironclad with support from a dedicated legal engineer. It works best for teams that want hands-on guidance to build an advanced use case like a buy-side workflow that requires integration with Coupa or OneTrust or a sell-side workflow that requires integration with Salesforce/CPQ.

CLM Drive

This legal engineering-led effort deploys both basic and advanced use cases with support from a dedicated legal engineer and implementation manager. Drive works best for teams that want Ironclad as a strategic partner in setting up workflows, mapping processes, and defining specific CLM goals.
