Likelihood to Recommend

ActiveDocs

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.

Cons

  • 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.

  • Reporting functionality needs to be improved. Extraction of reports is sometimes difficult due to limited options for search criteria.
  • ContractRoom is new system so it is normal to get stuck sometimes but this will get resolved in their new release.
  • Sometimes its advanced search function doesn't work properly. But when we report it, it gets fixed in real time. So this is something that needs to be addressed. Otherwise the product is very useful.

Usability

ActiveDocs9.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

Performance

ActiveDocs8.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

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.
