CIO Bulletin highlighted Ecteon’s standout ability to create industry and company specialized software, detailing the easy-to-use administrative support enhancements included in the 2019 release of Contraxx Version 9.0.  The magazine also noted the latest artificial intelligence (AI) functionality released in 2020, Exxtractor, and its ability to assist contract managers in a variety of decision making with business use-cases.

“Our AI feature greatly facilitates a company’s policy adherence and oversight to risk elements during the contracting process,” said Eckerstrom, describing how the module tracks and alerts the negotiating principal of company policy preferred, acceptable and unacceptable contract language.
