New York, NY (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Shake, the mobile-centric legal technology platform for creating, signing and sending legal agreements, announces today its movement into the small business marketplace. Building on Shake’s base of hundreds of thousands of individual users, Shake Pro offers new, premium features designed to help growing companies close deals faster.
Shake Pro is the only low-cost, comprehensive mobile solution for every aspect of creating and managing legal agreements. It enables users to close deals faster by creating, sending and accessing documents on-the-go via phone, tablet or computer. Businesses can upload their own forms, add company branding, share documents with their team, sync with Box and DropBox, and receive smart notifications about payment dates and other key provisions extracted from contracts. With 3.6 billion agreements entered into each year in the United States, Shake is providing a much needed alternative to incurring excessive legal fees for document creation and management, or avoiding legal agreements altogether.
“All too often, businesses do deals on a handshake because proper contracting is too cumbersome,” said Abe Geiger, Founder and CEO of Shake. “Shake Pro combines the convenience of a handshake with the protection of a legal contract. We aren’t replicating the paper contract experience -- we’re surpassing it by making it simpler for businesses to access, sign and send documents. With our smart notifications, we’re also making contracts more actionable by giving users the options to be reminded of key deadlines and other information. Though accessible across devices, we designed the entire Shake platform with a mobile first approach, which we believe is where business technology is headed. Every aspect of Shake is focused on helping businesses get deals done better.”
Shake Pro pilot users include Twitter, VICE Media, General Assembly, Betterment and Wieden + Kennedy.
“At Twitter, we often need photo releases in order to use footage for commercial purposes,” said Amanda McCroskery, Global Creative Producer at Twitter. “The process of printing out paper releases, carrying them around for signatures and organizing is unnecessarily time-consuming. With Shake, we are able to have people quickly sign photo releases on the spot, adding ease and efficiency in exactly the way we need. We look forward to our continued work with the company.”
Shake Pro pricing begins at $10 per month.
