LONDON, UK  – March 2, 2023 — ContractPodAi, the award-winning provider of the AI-powered, contract lifecycle management (CLM) product and ‘One Legal Platform,’ has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023. 

“We are very humbled and honored to be ranked as number 7 in the Europe, Middle East, and Africa category,” said Sarvarth Misra, CEO, and Co-Founder at ContractPodAi. “We’re proud to be recognized for our innovation on a global scale, and are excited about future innovations we have planned to further help customers achieve operational excellence, and accelerate legal’s time-to-value.”  

ContractPodAi is recognized for releasing several product features and updates over the last year to help customers maximize automation, efficiency and compliance, minimize risk, and help customers manage contractual obligations and activities after execution. These new features consist of its: 

  • Legal Intake application to connect users across an enterprise with the legal department to route and allocate requests efficiently and take requests through their lifecycle. 
  • Built-in contract compliance program that helps clients start with compliance playbooks within the system out of the box and from day one of using the platform. 
  • Visual Snapshot feature to allow for easier consumption of information related to a record in order to quickly review and take action on legal requests. 
  • Next-Generation Smart Repository to give legal teams an enhanced, user-friendly, and actionable repository, fully governed by roles and permissions, to increase the efficiency of finding information. 

The enhancements made to ContractPodAi’s platform in 2022 help in-house legal teams do more with less amid the tight labor market and economic downturn while reducing burnout that impacts society as a whole. Through its no-code applications and AI, ContractPodAi enables legal teams to invest more in higher-value work while breaking silos between legal teams and the rest of the organization. 

ContractPodAi is uniquely positioned to help customers and their organizations navigate ever-changing internal, industry, and regulatory changes with configurable, scalable technology, and earning a spot on the World’s Most Innovative Companies List validates this. 

Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the companies making the biggest strides around the globe. They also judged nominations received through their application process. 

The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides a firsthand look at the inspiring and innovative efforts of companies across all sectors of the economy. 

 “What a strange and thrilling year it has been to honor this year’s Most Innovative Companies. This year’s list compiles some of the most cutting-edge groundbreakers who are changing our world every single day, from legacy organizations like McDonald’s to upstarts like MrBeast and institutions such as NASA. Everyone on this list does something completely, uniquely different, yet, they all have one thing in common: innovation,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. 

 Fast Company will host its third annual Most Innovative Companies Summit on April 19 and 20. The virtual summit celebrates the Most Innovative Companies in business, and provides an inside look at cutting-edge business trends and what it takes to innovate in 2023. Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March/April 2023) is available online here, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 14. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.
