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.

Penneo is really well suited if you want to handle all contracts online. Reducing process time and reducing "waste" of paper being printed. It can speed up the process for all. To my knowledge, it's not possible to fraud the system, and the files being signed are always verified correctly.

  • For Danish users, it would be nice if Penneo offered the ability to sign and verify using MitID.
  • For signees, it would be nice to have a feature to add comments for documents, not just personal but also for the client.
  • As company the software solution is really great. There is not much negative points to highlight.

Usability
ActiveDocs
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
ActiveDocs
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.

Support Rating
ActiveDocs
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.

In relation to other software that have a functionality similar to ActiveDocs, they don't even compare in relation to the interface, I didn't use all the software available on the market, but the ones I used and I can compare, ActiveDocs is without a doubt the best among them. We really likes the interface.

  • As stated earlier Penneo has made a really positive impact on reducing our process time when signing contracts. Now we are able to complete a process with two or three sign-offs within a day. Before this process usually took a week.
  • We reduce a lot of physical storage by having all files electronically. Files are saved as PDFs and stored securely on a server. Earlier these were printed files stored in a physical folder.
  • As a large company we really want to reduce of environmental impact, and reducing a lot of physical prints is also a key measure for us. Penneo has had a positive impact on us in this regard.
