Cons

  • I don't like that they anticipate an annual revenue based on one quarter. Our business is cyclic in nature. This costs us more money in fees than necessary.
  • I never know exactly who to talk to. I've had to figure it out.
  • Set up was a mess. I had several employees that each tried and only one is necessary and when they leave, I have a problem.

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

It has complete overall contracting life cycle steps from due diligence, drafting & negotiation, approvals and signature, performance and monitoring.

ContractRoom is a subscription base model which helps have access to this software without having any financial impact to our business. We can purchase the license that we want and pay accordingly.
