Use Coda to Save Time Drafting Templatized Agreements

Our Coda template is designed to streamline the process of creating standard contracts by allowing employees to generate them as Word files without legal department involvement. This self-serve tool frees up legal team members to focus on more complex legal matters while ensuring all necessary legal requirements are met.
