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

This is an excellent contract repository. I like the ability to upload a pdf, which is read by LinkSquares' OCR. The fidelity of the searchable documents is extraordinary. I really like the flexibility in terms of what contract language you want reporting on and the reporting capabilities are second to none.

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.

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.

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 had a ton of support needs, honestly. We have just a couple of users and we haven't needed much support. I do know that if I ever need anything, that I have an account manager there to help and they have always ben very responsive to my needs

Implementation Rating
ContractZen
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.
