Evisort, a San Mateo, CA-based artificial intelligence-powered contract intelligence system, closed a $15m Series A funding.
The round was led by Vertex Ventures and M12, Microsoft’s venture fund, with participation from Amity Ventures and Serra Ventures.
The company intends to use the new funds to grow its team, expand product offerings, enhance the customer experience, and launch a new research and development office in Montreal, Quebec. Evisort anticipates hiring 10 technical team members for the Montreal office.
Founded in 2016 by Harvard Law and MIT researchers and led by Jerry Ting, CEO and co-founder, Evisort provides a proprietary AI solution that can read and understand the meaning in legal documents like sales contracts and vendor paperwork. The solution allows businesses to automate the work of reviewing, assessing, approving, and tracking any legal documents that define a business action or relationships, such as contracts, statements of work, invoices, purchase orders, and SLA or rebate tables. It reads and visualizes 50 plus key data points, such as payment tables and contract expiration dates, and key legal clauses, allowing teams to focus on strategic decision making versus document processing. The system can also learn to read all types of unstructured documents.
Evisort has secured more than 100 enterprise customers this year, from high-growth startups to some of the largest Fortune 500 companies, including Brooks Brothers, Cox Automotive, Fujitsu, TravelZoo, and Sweetgreen.
