Icertis and Microsoft partnership
Microsoft and Icertis have a long-standing 360-degree partnership right from its inception in 2009. Microsoft was the first customer and strategic partner of Icertis. Since then, Icertis and Microsoft have continued to strengthen their engagement by digitally transforming contracts from static documents into strategic business assets for leading companies all over the world. Working at the foundational technology, business strategy, and customer commercial levels, the joint goal is to drive innovation and help customers transform their businesses.
“The Icertis platform’s ease of use and intelligent insights will help us optimize the value of our commercial relationships, increase contracting efficiencies, and help reduce contractual risk.”

- Dr. Stephan Stathel, Operations Lead for New Procurement System and Team Lead for the Build2Run Team at Daimler AG
“The ICI platform and ICI Sourcing application will allow us to digitally transform our commercial foundation in the supply chain, ensuring best-in-class supplier evaluation, selection, contracting and collaboration – all while reducing supply chain risk.”

Microsoft runs on ICI
Microsoft is driving simplicity and internal alignment on a massive scale by:
Digitizing 1,200,000+ contracts with ICI
Microsoft’s legacy contracting system was not meeting their needs, leaving them with no way to unify contracts across the organization and gain the insights needed to manage risk.
By choosing the ICI solution, Microsoft was able to simplify and digitize their contract-management process. The implementation was completed in under 7 months—a task that the legacy system was unable to accomplish in three years.
1,200,000+ contracts migrated in 7 months
Microsoft now can create new contracts at scale 100,000+ per year
Reduced contract-creation time by ~50%
Reduced contract issue resolution time by 25%

Respond quickly to a global pandemic
When the COVID-19 situation began to unfold, Icertis began rapidly planning for their entire global workforce to transition to remote work. While the company had a robust business continuity plan in place, the entire workforce suddenly needing to work from home added a few complications that needed to be addressed:
Secure connections - Icertis was able to implement site-to-site and point-to-site VPN to secure remote access to resources and deliver a seamless end-user experience in less than one day.
Virtual computing - Azure Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) enabled high-bandwidth users to stay productive while home without connectivity or hardware limitations.
Seamless collaboration – The company fully transitioned to Microsoft Teams for all chats, meetings, calling, and collaboration. Icertis is reporting improvement in productivity, and most importantly, a seamless transition during challenging times.
