When labour is your biggest cost, you need to make it your biggest asset


Drive home your competitive advantage through robust contract management at scale.

Draft, modify, sign, and store the most important documents in your business – without wasting time on manual processes and risking human error in repetitive tasks. Our automated contract workflows will help you find efficiencies and maximise the value in your people.

Industry-wide connections

With more than 30+ years of experience, we’ve developed long-standing and trusting relationships with our suppliers. Having utilised their expertise time and time again – as well as continually testing brand new product releases – we’ve got a thorough understanding of many market leading solutions.

Collaborate, create, consult

Our consultative, commercial approach means you’ll never get anything ‘off the shelf’. Working closely with you and your teams, we’ll build a bespoke system that takes into account the specific nuances of your business, and the objectives you’re trying to hit. As your partner, we’ll take aim with you.


Signed, sealed, delivered – and much more

Contract management goes far beyond protecting the interest of each party.

From drafting your terms to modifying with version control, and extensive signing options with flexibility built in – our workflows provide a robust audit trail and are protected by permissions throughout. Storing and automatically deleting in line with compliance, backed up with records and evidence, your contract workflow will quite literally take care of itself.

Five common challenges of contract management:


Manual document processes, and unmanaged ‘to-and-fro’ cycles for review and follow-up actions, mean that the contracting process can be frustrating and time consuming.

Access to information

Organisations often have information such as pre-agreed terms and previous contracts stored in multiple locations. A lack of access and structure can make them difficult to find.


Many organisations are using cloud-based technologies such as Microsoft365 or Google Workspace. A lack of integration inhibits the contracting process and increases both time and complexity.

Visibility and control

It is difficult to track the status of a contract as it develops, understand which milestones have been met, raise alerts and escalations or provide audit reporting.

Reviews and Approvals

Although electronic approvals and signatures have been in use for several years, contract documents are still often printed and sent by post for multiple reviews and wet signatures.

Innovation and insights

Document digitisation is driving businesses forward

The importance and use of print and paper is declining, as digitisation powers a hybrid world.

What’s more, increasing use of cloud sharing and storage is eliminating paper-based challenges like version control, providing a single source of truth rather than countless variants.

And while artificial intelligence (AI) & machine learning (ML) brings greater use of predictive technology and templating, reducing the human element in drafting contracts, digitisation is simultaneously making collaboration more straightforward.

It’s common for processes to involve groups of documents which need to be kept together – whether for legal or medical cases, or recruitment onboarding and HR. Intelligent document processing and digital contract management is creating higher visibility and more teamwork between various interested parties.

Don’t just take
our word for it…

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
