BenchPrep Uses LinkSquares to Successfully Scale Their Legal Function

Chicago, IL


My name is Kristen Shaheen and I’m the GC of Benchprep. When I first started at Benchprep, understanding the population of the agreements was critical. I needed a tool that would allow me to scale as the organization continues to grow. LinkSquares has been a fantastic tool because I can search for terms that are critical to me. That’s been a tremendous time savings, which affords greater time that you can devote to other aspects of the department. The onboarding process with LinkSquares was a matter of weeks. We didn’t need any IT support. It’s just very intuitive to use. Other platforms I’ve worked with in the past, the integrations have been months, even six to seven months. One of the things that drew me to the tool is that cross-functionally across my organization, we can leverage LinkSquares, which from a collaboration perspective has been great. For example, with the Events insights, our Finance Department is alerted of upcoming renewals which allows our organization to be more proactive because we know what’s in those contracts, we know what we need to mitigate and we’re not forced to renew because we missed that term in the contract. We’re able to pull from the Dashboards, all of that information for risk mitigation, for forecasting. You’re able to have that snapshot at a glance. In addition, through the Finalize tool, our Sales folks can self-serve their own contracts. It frees me up to not walk them through every form that gets generated, which allows as the organization grows to scale very easily and very quickly. I highly recommend LinkSquares for all of your contracting needs. I would not discount how valuable it can be to other stakeholders, not just the legal department. It de-risks the legal function, it’s time savings and it’s highly scalable.
