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.

SAP Ariba Contract Management

If you have or work for a company that needs to manage lots of contracts at once, keeping track of each of them, it's the perfect tool needed in your business. Ariba Contract Management allows you to have a complete control over all your procurement contracts in an easy going, friendly platform. Would totally recommend it for small or large business that manage lots of procurement or sales contracts

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.
Petri Vuorinen | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • SAP Ariba has Ariba Supply Chain Network that makes Suppliers/Vendors/Buyers onboarding very easy. Ariba Contract Management is very well integrated with Ariba network and hence sharing contractual documents and information are very easy.
  • SAP Ariba provide integration with SAP ERP which takes out the effort needed to integrate Ariba with SAP.
  • Ariba exposes API and ITK to do integration if your ERP is none SAP.

Cons

ContractZen

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

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • The only point I can think that Ariba can improve is the performance issue. Sometimes it is getting very slow. Other than that Ariba functions very well.
  • In Ariba, assigning facilitators and monitors needs to be simplified.
  • The customer support team should have more admin rights.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ContractZen

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

SAP Ariba Contract Management

Ariba Contract Management is more user friendly than SAP. It does not have all the interative functionalities that Ariba has, such as the approval flows, etc. It is easier to train users to use Ariba Contract Management than it is to use SAP. Ariba is more affordable than the SAP licenses.

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

SAP Ariba Contract Management

  • ROI is spread over a longer term than we originally expected
  • Implementation cost is high
  • Certainly improved efficiency overall and better vendor management and digital enablement
  • Eco system is growing and scalable
