Digital first with JCT Online

JCT Online,

JCT has been adopting a ‘digital first’ approach for customers using the JCT Online Store to make it easier for those who have been working with construction contracts during the lockdown period, and to assist construction professionals in their return to work as the lockdown eases

JCT Digital provides a range of options for instant online access to any construction contract within the JCT 2016 Edition, enabling users to conveniently fill in and, depending on the service chosen, edit their contract in a safe and secure online environment.

Under the umbrella of JCT Digital is included two services – JCT On Demand and JCT Construct.

JCT On Demand

JCT On Demand is the digital equivalent of the JCT hardcopy contract. Users can purchase any JCT 2016 document via the JCT Online Store and access the document instantly via their account. JCT On Demand enables users to fill in their contract using an intuitive Q&A process to make sure their contract is completed comprehensively.

Currently, JCT On Demand is the default option (where available) for products purchased via the JCT Online Store, although customers can still order hardcopy contracts for delivery if they prefer by selecting the ‘hardcopy’ option from the format box on the product page.

The benefits of JCT On Demand:

  • Contracts are completed using an intuitive Q&A process, which makes filling in the contracts easy and makes sure that the document is completed comprehensively. Questions change depending on the answers given, so users only complete what is relevant to their project.
  • A split Q&A and preview screen enables answers to be seen in context and updated in real time.
  • Improved design features, such as easy to access document actions, interactive progress bar, and an easy to navigate folder structure, help to make finding and progressing through contracts a breeze.
  • Printing DRAFT watermarked copies during the process enables documents to be reviewed.
  • Comparison documents can be viewed and printed, showing all changes against the published JCT text, ensuring full transparency.
  • Finalise and print: When ready, documents can be finalised, the draft watermark is removed, and final copies can be printed for signing.
  • All documents within the JCT 2016 Edition of Contracts are available.

JCT Construct

JCT Construct is a subscription service with advanced editing features, enabling users to add their own bespoke clauses, amendments, or other text.

The document updates in line with user-added content and elements such as clause numbers and table of contents are updated automatically.  The system supports guest sharing for collaborative working, so all those involved in the drafting can share drafts, make edits and view changes.

A range of subscription options support single and multiple users and, as with JCT On Demand, the full range of JCT 2016 documents is available.

The benefits of JCT Construct:

  • Easy to use, flexible, and secure online contract drafting.
  • Contract text can be edited, with auto-updating of clause numbers, cross-references in the JCT text, and table of contents.
  • Guest sharing supports collaborative working amongst those involved in the contract drafting to share drafts, to edit and to see all the changes.
  • Version-to-version comparison enables any changes between draft versions and against the published JCT text to be seen, ensuring full transparency between the parties to the contract at all times.
  • Boilerplates can be created so that standard sets of changes can be reused.
  • Printing DRAFT watermarked copies during the process enables documents to be reviewed.
  • Finalise and print – when ready, documents can be finalised, the draft watermark is removed, and final copies can be printed for signing.
  • Flexible subscription options – for the full range, or a more limited range of contracts within the JCT 2016 Edition, plus options for single or multi-user subscribers are available.
