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

Ironclad

Specific scenarios that we use Ironclad for are: Request for NDAs, request for contract review, insurance request such as Certificates of Insurance, proof of E&O and also for any general legal requests. These requests are then assigned to the appropriate person best suited to handle the request. The entire process from initiation to finalization happens in the Ironclad workflow

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.

Ironclad

  • Ironclad is extremely easy to use, without providing much specific direction to new users.
  • It's wonderful to be able to capture the progress of contracts and requests as well as the notes regarding the status.
  • It's easy to tag another colleague into a workflow for their input and approvals as necessary.

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.

Ironclad

  • Once you add someone into a workflow there is no way to remove them. It would be nice to be able to get out of a workflow or remove someone.
  • The "assignment" function could be more clear for those individuals who don't regularly use Ironclad. Perhaps prompting them on how to upload a signed agreement if they are not the owner of the workflow.

Ironclad is the best tool I have used to date, to manage workflow and tickets. It was very easy to use and navigate from the very first time I used it. My time is very valuable and I don't have time to sit in training sessions, simply to use a new product. I'm happy to say that I was never formally trained on Ironclad as it simply wasn't necessary.

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 have only had to use the support function one time and after calling the support team, they immediately made the fix on their side and we were back in business.

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.

Return on Investment

ContractZen

  • Easier to manage contracts.
  • More contracts are being renewed on a timely basis.
Michael Gardner | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ironclad

  • Positive - Increased efficiency, as all work into the legal department flows into Ironclad. We can see where resources are being spent and which internal business partners are utilizing the legal department the most.
  • Positing - Better internal business partner service. We are able to communicate directly with our internal partners as to the status of their request and keep them apprised where we are in the negotiation process, etc.
