Certa
Our brief experience with Certa was great overall. We liked the many options it provided, and saw how easily it could help manage our company's needs. However, the app was not as intuitive to work our way through, especially for those in our company that are not tech savvy. The onboarding function was what I was most excited about while using it. The dashboard made it super easy to see the overview of a project and know the next steps that need to be taken, and help get everyone on the same page without having to send emails, calls or texts to give updates. However, when deciding whether to continue with Certa or go a different route, the choice was hard, but he had enough employees struggling and unsure on the app that made the end decision

CMW has less integration capabilities, this is something that can definitely be improved in the future. On a side note, the MS Outlook integration option is excellent. The UI is decent for its purpose and the platform is well suited for a range of business requirements - customer order management, document tracking and approval management. You name it, they have it.

Cons
Certa
  • Because it is fully customizable, we felt like there were too many options. Having more of a basic template for like-minded industries would be helpful.
  • Maneuvering around the app was not as easy as I'd hoped. We have several employees that aren't tech savvy, and it was hard getting them to use the app.

You don't have to be from IT to get started and working on it. They have made it really simple from almost everybody to work on it. You get comfortable real quick as it is similar to Outlook. Max to max you won't take more than 2 weeks to get a hang of it

It's more of drag and drop functionality. It is quite easy to set up. Creation of form is very easy. Support Team of Comindware Tracker is good and very friendly. It is efficient in terms of task management, project management, team management, vendor/client tracking.

We actually ended up picking JobNimbus over Certa only because we had employees that were already familier with JN and felt comfortable navigating and assisting other coworkers. It came down to JN and Certa and that was the only reason we didn't go with Certa. They were very comparable, but the few employees that are not tech savvy were having difficulties navigating Certa. I would not be opposed to using Certa in the future or recommending it to other companies.

Other than trying Comindware Tracker it is newer to me, I have used Adobe software multiple times and are familiar with their products. I won't stack Comindware Tracker against them because they both are amazing. I like using Comindware tracker because it is easy to use and is great for me, it helps optimize and maintain my workflows.

Return on Investment
Certa
  • The contract software was great. We were spending money each month to have certified contracts signed and drawn up. Certa did a great job at including this feature, saving money overall.
  • Once all documents and contacts are inputted, so much time and effort would be saved. We would no longer need to call, email or follow up with each other to verify that tasks were completed.
