Disrupting Digital Dealmaking



Paqt – the agreement platform. We’ve redefined digital dealmaking with a professional chat and a set of tools, which make it efficient and legally powerful. Digital ID, in-chat digital signatures, micro-agreements and contract generation – all is collected in a ready to use tool. How it works? Identified parties will negotiate the terms in a group chat, formalize and put them in an agreement template, sign it, execute the contract, manage their on-going relationships and archive the entire thing, which they can then use in case of a dispute. Paqt is making the digital agreement process enjoyable without compromising the speed and legal security. Strike deals with Paqt today –
