Sweet Deal: Spilling the Beans on Jelly Belly Candy Company’s Adoption of Contract AI

June 1, 2022

Jelly Belly Candy Company has been making its world-famous jelly beans and other delectable treats for more than a century. Everyone from kids to the young at heart can enjoy their colorful creations in more than 100 flavors.

However, things weren’t always so sweet for the Jelly Belly legal team. With just three people on staff, it used to take at least a week to get one contract from review through execution. With several new contracts coming their way every day, manual contract review simply wasn’t tenable.

The Jelly Belly team knew that they needed to make a change. While the rest of the company scaled up, employees from the legal, finance, procurement, and sales teams were still bogged down by manual contracting processes. To make matters worse, those manual processes put the business in a tight spot when they made the team miss contract expiration dates or other key data.

Jelly Belly invested in a document management system, but it took the better part of a year just to get it up and running with all of the company’s contracts. Worse yet, that system didn’t enable the team to search or track the data contained in the documents they’d spent so much time uploading.

That’s when they turned to Evisort.
