There are not a lot of competitors to compare this product with, but ActiveDocs holds its own as a very useful software for the need. I recommend doing a demo to see how the process works, but it's rather streamlined and easy to create a template and produce a document from it.

Agiloft Contract Lifecycle Management

It is very well suited to companies that really want to customize their CLM to suite their needs. Agiloft is very flexible and has the ability to do whatever you need. We have been able to categorize our contracts based on industry standards which makes it very easy to search. Single sign-on has made user creation super easy and has allowed us to deploy quickly to over 500 users. There is no additional charge for end users to view which has saved us when compared to other vendors.

Pros

ActiveDocs

  • Easy to use for basic users, extremely configurable for advanced users.
  • Deep Microsoft Word integration ensuring consistent document output.

Agiloft Contract Lifecycle Management

  • Customization of print template request forms: The customization of the request forms that are used to fill the blank fields in our contract templates is simply amazing. They don't only pull simple information like dates or financials but can be built in the back end to operate around rules. For example, We have a rule set up that a territory can't be selected for a given agreement if that territory is already in use. Before this we would have to manually search a list of all territories and whether they are exclusively used.
  • Tracking Function: This system allows us to track our contracts using any data we deem necessary. We can track by expiry, contract amount, contract type, territory, contract requester, etc. We can also create saved searches for particular contract data sets that we use frequently. These can also be very easily used to generate charts or graphs which allow us to see our rate of compliance and much more. This a functionality that we did not have when we tracked everything using one big excel spreadsheet, which had to be updated manually.
  • Employee/User Management: Agiloft allows us to manage our employees' ability to interact with the system. In our organization, some groups need more access than others. Some need to be able to view our contracts, and some need to participate in negotiations, approvals, signing, etc. This allows us to create groups which we can organize our employees into and restrict or enable access where necessary. Before Agiloft we would have to send contracts to employees via email upon request. Now they can search for themselves, which is much more efficient.

Cons

ActiveDocs

  • The built-in template designs are a bit lackluster. While there are numerous, they all have the same blase style and formatting
  • The built-in template designs are not very diverse and could be expanded upon.
Derek Schroeder | TrustRadius Reviewer

Agiloft Contract Lifecycle Management

  • Reporting ( I would love to see Power BI integration).
  • Easier to design End User Portal.

Very good usability overall. Any user can pick this up and run with it. HotDocs, the closest competitor, has similar end-user usability, but from a designer of templates perspective, ActiveDocs definitely has the edge in this regard. I would recommend this for any company that mass produces documents from templates as deliverables.

The software overall is very excellent. It responds quickly and produces documents well. The integration with systems makes data input easy. Questions can be designed to allow further expansion of template creation/customization. The rules section is very useful for complicated If/Than/Else style templates. Although experience and training help, the software is very user-friendly out of the box.

ActiveDocs can be a considerably complex product because your use cases can be potentially endless. In our experience, when we have come across a problem or issue with the product ActiveDoc's support has always responded to our queries within 24 hours. Support is only provided via email in 95% of cases. Each year your support and maintenance includes support hours. These are used when you contact support and your issue is not found to be a bug or problem with the product (completely fair and understandable). When we've identified or discovered bugs (mainly with the latest version of Word) it is patched by the next release. They typically release about 4-5 updates per year.

Alternatives Considered

ActiveDocs and HotDocs are very similar. HotDocs requires training or a technically savvy mind to pick up and run with. ActiveDocs seems much more user-friendly and easy to use. HotDocs, however, can produce some very intricate documents based on the templates. Both use rules and question-based information intake. Another benefit of ActiveDocs is its integration with numerous systems including Office 365.

Agiloft Contract Lifecycle Management

Prior to implementing Agiloft, we used ProLaw. ProLaw acts as an electronic library for all contracts across the company. We were able to get this to work for us but it was limited in what functionality it provided. Agiloft is far superior when it comes to tracking and contract generation. Both systems store the agreements; however, Agiloft does a lot of the work for us. It creates the agreements with the click of a button, manages user permissions, sends automated reminders without requiring setup. These are all things ProLaw either didn't have or had but required manual entry. I was not the one who selected Agiloft as our new system, but after using it I can see why it was chosen.

Return on Investment

ActiveDocs

  • Repeatable, consistent output ensures document generation isn't where time can be wasted.
  • Stringent logic ensures compliance and removes the opportunity for user error.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Agiloft Contract Lifecycle Management

  • Increased employee efficiency is by far the most noticeable impact. Contract generation time has been cut in half, if not more because the required fields on the request form eliminate the endless back and forth vial email.
  • Increased Compliance Rate: Departments can now only obtain legal approval through Agiloft, which drastically reduces the number of contracts signed without legal review.
  • One short term negative impact is training all employees on the system. This is time-consuming and sometimes met with hesitation by staff. But long term this increases efficiency across the board.
