ContractZen
ContractZen is perfect for small and medium business where the use case is to manage contracts, get alerts, and track details about contract. ContractZen has other features such as meeting management, eSignatures etc. We focus primarily on contract management and are pleased with it. ContractZen has a lot of competition and many competitors have a full contract lifecycle, which is desirable in large companies. ContractZen does not have a full contract lifecycle process. Full contract lifecycle will have request for comments/proposals, NDA, quotes, implementation proposals etc. go through multiple people, multiple layers of approval etc. and different triggers in the contract would generate different tasks for staff to manage the contract till the contract expires. Large and complex companies have needs that ContractZen may not be suitable for

DocSend works really great if you want to send out a doc to a prospect and want to track when they open it and what content they view. The reporting on this works really well and I've been happy with this functionality. Where it falls short is when you're trying to use it for a live demo utilizing the join.me integration. There are a lot of issues when you try to switch your screen and it only works 2/3s the time. I'd prefer an all-in-one solution instead of this Frankenstein model.

Pros
ContractZen
  • The easy storage of contracts is important. Easier than a shared hard drive folder or a jointly administered Excel sheet, both of which we tried to use in the past.
  • The alerts of key contract dates is crucial. Knowing what needs to be terminated or at least considered has saved us money.
  • Simple signing of contracts electronically has saved us money in getting from an agreed to contract to a signed one in minutes.

  • Password encryption if necessary.
  • Email verification for third-party download via email.
  • Add-ons with other platforms and applications, such as Outlook and Gmail.
  • Seal of documents by electronic signature

Cons
ContractZen
  • I would like one view of entire client history.
  • It would be nice to put the client information in once and then simply add on contract extensions in the same folder.

  • DocSend has a newer feature called Spaces, it lets you place multiple files into a single "deal room". Unfortunately for us, we need it to support nested file structures for larger content sets. Their support team says this is on the way.
  • I'd like to be able to change the icons for links add to Space, currently, they're a default icon.
  • Navigating the UI is just a bit laborious, it feels like it should be easier to get to link creation since that is what you're doing 90% of the time you go to the site.

The best part about ContractZen is that I needed no support. I had a couple questions in the last 2 years which were answered accurately within hours. Everything has worked as expected.

I haven’t used the support as our internal teams do a great job of fixing and supporting our DocSend use.

The capture of the new contracts is more important than the old contracts, somewhat counterintuitively. Once you start saving time using the electronic signing and retrieval, adding old material is easier. Old material additions fit our annual schedule as we've done them during periods of less administrative work.

ContractZen is true value for the money and far more simpler than more advanced systems

DocSend is more convenient than DocuSign if you are already using Dropbox, otherwise a lot of these solutions come down to pricing and preference on user interface. For us, DocSend was great until our needs changed to needing a more sophisticated contract management tool. With further integrations and API accesses in the future, I think it will be easier to have all systems communicating and working together .

  • For about $100 you can optimize all
  • Of your pipelines that rely on decks or documents - worth it!
  • The time you’d spend having to send each link to individual clients without tracking is well worth the $100 on the product
  • We’ve been able to close our fundraising round and increase partnerships by utilizing DocSend - would recommend!
