Opportunities don’t last forever. To take advantage of them it’s essential to keep conversations moving and everyone on your team on the same page. Sales, partnership, and even M&A conversations break down is during the NDA process. First, time gets lost in an interaction that looks like this:


Without PlainVanilla

PERSON A: I think we’re on to something, but we need an NDA in place before we can have a more detailed conversation.

PERSON B: We’ve been in the same industry for a long time. Do we already have an NDA in place?

PERSON A: No idea. Let me ask our counsel.

A week goes by.

PERSON B: We can’t find an existing NDA. Let’s start with a new one.



Someone at Company A now pulls up their form, enters in all of the information by hand, and emails the contract off. Problems compound because the NDA Company A sends isn’t neutral. Company B’s lawyer reviews it and sends it back with lots of comments leading to several rounds of negotiation. The business people don’t see all of the emails going back and forth and they’re constantly asking their legal team “what’s the status of the NDA?” Now everyone is frustrated and relationships have soured before anyone even knows if there’s a deal to be had.


After the NDA is signed the problems don’t end. Most companies have their NDAs stored in email boxes, locally on laptops, and even on paper in filing cabinets. The one thing that’s consistent across all of these methods is they’re difficult to find for an individual and impossible for an organization.



With PlainVanilla

PERSON A: I think we’re on to something, but we need an NDA in place before we can have a more detailed conversation.

PERSON B: I don’t see an NDA between our two companies. Let me send you one.

PERSON A: Got it. I’ve signed.

PERSON B: Me too. Ok, let’s continue...

They’re done in under a minute!



One of the important pieces of the PlainVanilla platform is our finely tuned user controls make it so that the right people in the organization have the right authority to make decisions, which minimizes the need for the legal team to be across every single agreement. In this case, the legal team doesn’t need to read the NDA because they’ve already approved the PlainVanilla NDA and approved the person signing it. PlainVanilla allows companies to control which users send, negotiate, or sign contracts which maximizes speed while reducing risk.


Getting started takes moments. Your legal team creates a legal entity with the appropriate information and then users request access and permissions making set up fast and easy to administer.
