Document automation means creating automated templates, using software, for legal documents (such as contracts).
Once the templates are created, users of the software usually answer questionnaires. Once it has this information, the software can instantly generate the contract, and you’re done.
The purpose is to automate the repetitive process of building a document from scratch each time you need a new contract.
In practice, many contracts are extremely similar, with just a few variations. So, for example, once you create an NDA template, the next time you need an NDA, you can generate the template much more quickly using the questionnaire.
