My business is HR consulting. Best benefits: organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

Suitable:- Simple contract management, especially bulk contract management. Less Appropriate:- Larger entities. Though, based on their price + features, I don't think they're focusing on the > 500 employee organizations.

Pros

  • Great for task administration.
  • Customer service is friendly, pragmatic and always available.
  • Organize freelance consultants by projects and tasks.

  • Automated templates are incredibly easy to implement. Concord also does, for the most part, very well at keeping formatting when uploading documents in Word. The only downside is if you use formulas (naming convention for contracts), if you do not copy + paste as values before uploading then it will give the contract the name of the formula.

Cons

  • Need to improve in the way it shows project development in time: Gantt chart, schedules, etc.

  • User management has been and still is, a pain point for us. We operate over a dozen entities and for the most part, anyone with access to Concord on our team has the same permissions across all entities. We must manage users one-by-one so onboarding + offboarding can be tedious.
  • The analytics are basic. I wish we could slice and dice and say "Show me only contracts tagged with X tag".

Alternatives Considered

Better features for project development follow up than Asana and Wrike (previous choices)

Return on Investment

  • Positive: Internal Communication and Collaboration

  • Since our implementation, I am saving a few hours a month in managing our IC contracts.
  • When people have questions about contracts, now it's clear "Hey, look in Concord" versus "Hey, does John or Sally have this contract?".
