JCT Digital – are you making the most of our latest online services?

JCT is committed not only to following best practices in the creation of its suite of contracts, but also in their delivery, including adopting the latest online services to support the drafting process and facilitate access to JCT contracts.

Flexible options to buy and work with your JCT contracts.

Two years ago we launched our current digital services, JCT On Demand and JCT Construct, unaware of the unprecedented set of challenges the construction industry was about to face due to the Covid pandemic -19. However, JCT Digital has revolutionized the process of writing contracts online, allowing many professionals to continue to be able to access the contracts they need and support flexible working through the latest online services.

The latter two online services maximize best practices and transparency by producing comparison documents highlighting the full set of all changes and modifications against the standard JCT text.

Through our digital approach and as we continue to adapt and refine our services, JCT will play its part in supporting the industry’s drive to modernize, be agile, flexible and embrace innovative technologies and latest online services.
