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

Vanta seems excellent for startups, but I expect that they would be even more useful at bigger companies. I think it really helps people that haven't done SOC2 before. I also think it would help in monitoring compliance across teams with many users. If the budget is extremely tight, I think it would be possible to save money by not using it.

Vanta
  • API driven capabilities offer a very easy way to connect your systems to their application.
  • It was mostly intuitive to figure out what needed to be configured.
  • I like how responsive they have been and how they have been able to outline the entire process for us from the start to the end.

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.

  • In my opinion, they make it very hard to contact them when you need something.
  • In my experience, they write their contracts to make it difficult to cancel service.
  • In my experience, they have no policy for refunds in addition to their [...] contacts.

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.

Vanta's reporting was far superior, the price was competitive but my engineers running the project said that working with vanta would save them significant amount of time. Secondly vanta had more integrations so they could plug directly into the systems we use!

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.

  • We were able to close contracts because we had our SOCII compliance in place
  • SOCII certification process was reduced by at least 80%
