In 2017, BlaBlaCar, an international carpooling platform, and Gatekeeper, the leading company in content management solutions entered a partnership. Its main objective is to help BlaBlaCar’s in-house legal team stay on top of key documentation, crucial dates and streamline their processes. Contract management used to involve a lot of unnecessary administration and organizational work, essentially grunt work that eats up a lot of the company’s resources.
Upon the implementation of this partnership, GatekeeperHQ focused on training BlaBlaCar’s employees on how to use the new system and used Gatekeeper, its flagship contract management software, to bulk upload the company’s existing contract documents and metadata, as well as configure its workflows.
Gatekeeper’s easy-to-learn interface made the transition from annual contract management into a fully automated and digital contract management quick and easy. In fact, Anastasiia Sergeeva, the Legal Operations Manager of BlaBlaCar, noted that “Before Gatekeeper, contracts were everywhere and nowhere.” A testament to how Gatekeeper improved BlaBlaCar’s operations.
As expected, GatekeeperHQ’s partnership with BlaBlaCar has been nothing but successful. All objectives agreed upon at the beginning of the partnership have been met. Soon after using Gatekeeper, BlaBlaCar has seen:
- Ease in monitoring contracts through clear, user-friendly dashboards
- Increased efficiency in renegotiating, renewing and terminating existing contracts
- More savings and benefits leading to lowered overhead costs
- Streamlined processes
- Clearer communication between the legal and business teams
- Better budget allocation
- Organized, accessible and comprehensive contract repositories
And now, three years in, the partnership between GatekeeperHQ and BlaBlaCar has only become much stronger. The specifics are discussed in detail in this partnership case study conducted by GatekeeperHQ.
Ian Bryce, the Head of Marketing of GatekeeperHQ, states that “Gatekeeper has been widely adopted throughout the business, with new employees receiving dedicated training and has helped put contract management much higher on the agenda across multiple departments and teams.”
Supporting this claim, Sergeeva adds, “We didn’t do it alone. The Gatekeeper team worked closely with us the whole way through helping to cement the relationship and reinforce that we made the right choice. This is our investment in a successful future.”
