How it all began
Our story began in 2015 when three friends decided to team up and build a world-class product based on Artificial Intelligence. Building on the team’s experience, we started working on a contract management solution - one that would stand out from the competition thanks to its efficiency and ease of use.
The result was Zefort, a zero-effort contract management solution. We developed (and continue to develop) our product in close cooperation with our customers. By understanding our customers, we are able to best solve the challenges in their everyday work.
Today, Zefort’s international team has grown, the product keeps evolving and we have reached a point where we are expanding to new markets. We warmly welcome you to join us on our journey!
