ContractZen

ContractZen is perfect for a team or SMB use case. We use it to store all contracts: HR, services bought, subcontractors and sales. The benefits are somewhat different for different types of contracts, but having all in the same place is a benefit in and of itself.

MS SharePoint

It is the appropriate tool for document repositories that have many people as public, also for documents where a work team of any size can work simultaneously and the document's membership remains joint (unlike OneDrive). Also to keep the versions of the documents secured at each change. Regarding the distribution and organization of documents, it is perfect to segment by libraries, teams, among others, the documents according to the required audience.

Pros

ContractZen

  • Intuitive and easy to use.
  • Good metadata structure.
  • Also has a desktop (browser) version.
  • Sharing and collaborative working with documents is one of the handiest I've seen in comparable systems.

MS SharePoint

  • Document sharing - it works really well for this. documents can be included in libraries and organized in folders. Documents can be uploaded as files or links to files stored anywhere that is accessible by URL.
  • Team discussion boards - It does discussion format very well and presents discussion sin a familiar format that all users will recognize. it can also do Wikis.

Cons

ContractZen

  • The iPhone application is underpowered, I suggest using the web version also on mobile devices.
Petri Aukia | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

  • If you are going to implement its intranet system, you may have some problems, Microsoft actually discourages that from happening.
  • Sometime if you need to search, it requires a lot of internal customization.
  • Social networking is separated from the rest of the intranet.
  • Sometimes when you need to upload a great number of files, it becomes slow, and even some files do not upload, so you need to upload them manually.

We have too much invested at this point to do anything different and there are too many reasons as a company our size to keep it. We are heavily licensed out for Microsoft and have 12 years of SharePoint development baked into who we are. Extracting that as a tool at this point would be dumb and devastating. There are no like-kind competitors to it at an enterprise level that scale and integrate as well.

The data is stored and presented in a logical fashion. The main screens are straightforward and simple. The email to sign -functionality with the signing directly on a mobile device is easy enough to get some real traction.

A lot of users can give you many great ideas how to cleverly use SharePoint's core functionality to implement almost any process you need. It is very sturdy, never crashes. Many applications and third party solutions are built for SharePoint so even customization without Microsoft programming skills is rather easy and low cost.

Support varies by tech and by vendor. I've used Microsoft's support channel and for the most part have been successful to get my questions answered. I've also used third party vendors and have gotten some answers resolved as well, though sometimes getting them on the phone is difficult. It all depends!

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.

Planning to the last detail would be advised. SharePoint is a very large application that takes a lot of finesse to get operational

ContractZen is true value for the money and far more simpler than more advanced systems
Petri Vuorinen | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

While SharePoint isn't as easy to use as Igloo or Squarespace, it comes bundled with Office 365 and drives the backend of those tools. I don't see SharePoint as a place people want to go and see stuff, but rather as a glue that supports all the other Office Products. If we get more in house expertise, then it could be a place that people manage work, but it's not used that way right now
Matthew Deakyne | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

ContractZen

  • I have saved 50% of my time when managing and sharing bids and agreements.
  • I'll never miss a contract end date - ContractZen has already saved 15% of my total annual contract value.
Petri Vuorinen | TrustRadius Reviewer

MS SharePoint

  • We moved from DocuShare to MS SharePoint and it's been proven very effective.
  • Using MS SharePoint has provided immediate access to documents to staff where in the past, they would have to wait for an admin staff to forward to them.
  • It has been a positive impact for our organization - our newer staff has really benefited from MS SharePoint.
