I would definitely recommend using Basware Purchase to Pay in your organization, it handles high amounts of invoices efficiently and you can perform your work with ease. I am acting as a Basware superuser in my team so I know this software thoroughly and it rarely gives any issues, even errors are described in a clear way so the user knows what needs to be resolved/what is missing.

CLM is best suited for Medium to Large size corporations, in my opinion. Organizations need to be informed in order to be successful; they must have a team prepared to own and manage the CLM tool once implementation is complete. Great for B2B and B2C. Highly recommend it to those in question about purchasing for their organization.

Pros
Basware
  • It's easy to process invoices in a very short amount of time due to the fact that you can save your frequently used fields as favorites
  • The system is extremely easy to use as there are only a few steps required for complete processing of invoices
  • The ability to create and save templates of commonly used coding makes coding of invoices is fast and easy
  • Often times no interaction is even needed for invoice processing as received items and POs will match up on the back end with no intervention

  • You don't have to worry about different clauses. You can just create them and bundle them based on your Contract.
  • Conga contracts come with great redline and true-up features which makes the negotiation process way easy.
  • You can integrate it with Conga composer to generate the Contract document and also can integrate it with Conga sign to send the generated contract for signature.

Cons
Basware
  • Once you cancel the document in "cancellation queue" it cannot be restored or viewed.
  • Sometimes but relatively rarely the program opens slowly.
  • In rare instances the program freezes and needs to be restarted.

  • X-author for Word can be improved as it does not maintain a stable connection and the org gets disconnected frequently.
  • It does not support grandparent relationship for merge field population.
  • A separate package needs to be installed for the integration of CPQ and CLM tools from Conga.

We will continue using product and continue renewing as it is widely used product and it has been well adapted by users in our organization. The product is expensive but we will use it. Hopefully the product bugs will be fixed in future and they will provide more HA architecture feather for Basware.

Simple and easy to use for the legal team to creates contracts in Salesforce and with the help of conga contract attaches the different clauses through the bundle and sends them for negotiation and for signature. This is the primary work they do from Conga contracts. We had solution which is build using conga contracts, conga composer and conga sign

Very very difficult to get support. The support team is great for simple, general questions. If we ran into anything complex, we usually would figure it out before they could help us. We often were bounced around from rep to rep

Basware was not my selection as I was not with the company at the time. It was easy to learn and we have maintained a good working relationship with Basware. It is a very good way to process the workflow of invoices from start to finish

  • We really never saw a great ROI. We installed and then were left alone for many years despite many calls for help.
  • We were able to get out of a spreadsheet.
  • We did have an approval flow that allowed us to view where in the process each contract was, but the approval flow was also very difficult to manage and was not able to handle complex approval flows.
