Contract Terms Analysis and Benchmark

People and companies want to buy from businesses that make it simple and easy and sellers want to close deals fast. Contract documents affect both of these areas – the perception of being easy to work with and the speed it takes to execute a contract.

Many organizations are now looking to undertake competitive analysis of their terms and conditions. World Commerce & Contracting is at the leading edge of mass data analytics, an area that is transforming the field of contracting.

As a non-partisan, independent global organization, we can help you gain an objective insight into the balance, fairness and competitiveness of your contract terms.

Contract Terms Analysis and Benchmark

How we can help

By using the latest technology and collaborating with world-class experts in contract analytics, we can deliver an effective, efficient, and trustworthy analysis. Insights on best practices will help you reduce your negotiation efforts and increase deal velocity.

Benchmark against competitors

We undertake a comparative analysis of the terms currently in use by your organization and its identified competitors*. We then generate a report highlighting the extent and nature of variations, for example:


Differences of intent


Differences of structure(e.g. cross-references and links to external sources)


Differences of content (e.g. wording, positioning, additions, omissions)


Comparisons on ease of use and readability scores

* Comparisons are undertaken against competitor terms and conditions that are publicly available or already in our database.

Analyze your contract portfolio

We can leverage software to create a searchable repository of your contracts and clauses, combined with visualization tools, to quickly understand your contract corpus. For example, you will be able to see at a glance:


What you agreed to in the past


What clauses your agreements contain


How frequently do you secure your preferred positions


How you diverge from your standard terms


Your typical fallback positions


How your agreements are organized


The standard language of each clause


All deal-specific variations
