Contract Vault GmbH

Transforming the way businesses handle documents and contracts. Focusing on user experience, practical innovation and AI-driven solutions.

Founded in 2017 by computer scientist Gordon Mickel and attorney Perica Grasarevic, Contract Vault GmbH embarked on a mission to revolutionize document and contract lifecycle management through an intuitive, end-to-end platform. In spring 2018, economist Claude Heinis joined the team, further strengthening the company's expertise. With invaluable support from pilot customers and IT law specialist firm Laux Lawyers AG, we launched DocIQ version 1.0 in autumn 2020 after rigorous development and refinement.

Major corporations like Swisscom, insurance companies, large law firms, boutique firms, notaries, tax advisors, accountants, associations, and various SMEs swiftly adopted our ground-breaking platform while we also explored applications in public sectors.

In spring 2021, we introduced one of the most advanced electronic signature solutions as a certified Swisscom partner supporting Qualified Electronic Signatures (QES) according to Swiss and EU standards.

The successful completion of a private seed round at the end of 2021 fueled further development towards an exciting milestone – the launch of DocIQ v2.0 slated for the end of 2023. This funding round assembled an esteemed advisory board of industry experts to guide us on strategic direction; market insights; business growth; technology trends; regulatory compliance; partnerships; mergers & acquisitions – ensuring our position at innovation's cutting edge.

DocIQ v2.0 unveils revolutionary AI features that boost efficiency and user experience across industries while providing a seamless experience for all users. Our state-of-the-art AI technology automates tasks such as converting static documents into dynamic SmartDocs; determining metadata; integrating semantic search engines; language translation; content generation; AI-powered contract reviews – delivering massive time savings for users.

The versatility of DocIQ v2 unlocks countless use cases across industries, from law firms to large enterprises to finance departments, equipping businesses with pioneering document and contract lifecycle management solutions that streamline creation, collaboration, and management processes. As we innovate and grow, our dedication to delivering exceptional features and enhancements propels us forward.
