Icertis
Chose Icertis
Ariba contracts is still slightly easier to use, better interface and easier to manage as an administrator than Icertis. Ariba allows administrators the capabilities to make changes and updates with less reliance on support, allowing for independence.
Chose Icertis
The UI/UX could use some updating compared to the other systems mentioned. I was not a part of the selection process so I cannot speak about that process.

Coupa Software
I am new to customer-supplier portals in my career. I use several different ones in my current role, including Ariba and Tipalti. To be honest, I don't really enjoy the user experience of any of them. I can see how larger companies may benefit from their services but for my current role submitting invoices on them and filling out vendor information requests seems somewhat clunky to me. When I'm in Coupa, the easiest, most non-clunky process for me is when I'm successfully connected with a customer who has successfully created their purchase order and I can easily upload my invoice to said PO. To me, emailing customer invoices directly to the customer from our invoicing system seems like the easier route of delivering an invoice. I suppose it is helpful and reassuring to know that an invoice has been successfully uploaded into a company's system rather than waiting to find out if your emailed invoice made it to the correct department for payment processing.

Icertis
Icertis is well suited for organizations that have a large number of contracts to manage and need a centralized platform to manage them. It is particularly useful for organizations that need to track and manage contract expiration dates, renewals, and other important dates. It is also well suited for organizations that need to comply with regulatory requirements and need a platform to help with compliance.In terms of scenarios where Icertis may be less appropriate, it may not be the best fit for organizations with a small number of contracts to manage. It may also not be the best fit for organizations that need a high degree of customization, as the platform does have some limitations in terms of customization options. Additionally, Icertis may not be the best fit for organizations that want a platform that is focused on specific industries, such as construction or real estate, as it's more generic in nature.It's worth noting that Icertis is a powerful and flexible tool, and its suitability for a particular organization depends on the specific needs and requirements of that organization.

Pros
Coupa Software
  • Coupa is easy to use, however, we had to teach our end users about procurement. They are not used to conducting an RFP, onboarding a supplier, or preparing a PO. This is the change management that our employees had to be prepared to understand. The Shelby Group helped us with the implementation.
  • The hardest part was the integration between NetSuite and Coupa. We wanted to have a dynamic tight integration between the two solutions. If we adjusted the chart of accounts or added a new supplier we wanted it to be able to done in both systems and be available immediately in both systems. We used a partner called SuiteSkies to accomplish this dynamic integration.
  • We’ve been able to manage the implementation and maintenance with a very lean IT group.

  • Contract Creation and Management: Icertis excels at streamlining the contract creation process. It allows users to easily create and manage contracts using pre-approved templates, which can be customized as needed. The platform also includes built-in e-signature capabilities, making it easy for all parties to sign and execute contracts electronically. This has greatly reduced the time and resources needed for contract management, and has enabled our organization to be more efficient in the contract creation process.
  • Contract Compliance: Icertis helps organizations stay compliant with regulatory requirements by providing real-time tracking and alerts for contract expiration dates, renewal dates, and other important dates. This feature has been particularly useful for our organization, allowing us to avoid costly contract renewals and stay compliant with legal requirements.
  • Analytics and Reporting: Icertis provides powerful analytics and reporting capabilities that allow organizations to gain valuable insights into their contract portfolio. These analytics and reports can be used to identify trends, track performance, and make more informed business decisions. This has been particularly beneficial for our organization, allowing us to better understand the performance of our contracts and make more strategic decisions.

Cons
Coupa Software
  • Support Team - A little slow in responding. I think the tool is so configurable that they struggle with figuring out what is causing certain issues that are being submitted on the portal.
  • I'd love for the Sourcing Module to be able to support larger events. There seems to be a limit on the number of lines each event can support and as a growing retailer, our store count dictates we have room to grow and that each store is represented in the bid process.
  • Would like to see the ability to issue multiple POs for a single item to multiple locations. The tool may do this but I know I can't and it may be due to how we interface with our ERP.

Icertis
  • Some features are unnecessarily limiting. For example, the inability to delete records or change fields later if it turns out there has been a mistake in how the contract was entered or the term was described. The Icertis form fields are NOT the contract record that is required to be kept. If someone makes an error, they should be able to fix it. The contract itself doesn't change, and that is the business record.
  • Too much is built on the assumption that the person requesting the contract is the one with the control or ownership of the contract. It would be better if the person to whom the contract is submitted for review was the owner in the system.
  • Not all requests will in fact end with a contract. Sometimes requests are started and the project is abandoned or put on hold for a period of time. More status fields that reflect the reality of contracting would be helpful.

super dependent on how much money you want to pay. The general regular support can usually take around one to two weeks to get an answer and sometimes that issue is fixed but the underlying issue is not addressed even if you call out that it is a repeated issue. It appears that sometimes support is not really trained in how your instance is set up so there can be a bit of back and forth just to be able to get the appropriate support.

Coupa Software
Concur was a lot easier and more user friendly for employees doing expense reports on their phone. That is not the case with Coupa. You must use your laptop to do expenses and our managers don't always have enough time to do that while out in the field working. This has caused some issues.

Icertis
In our organization, we chose Icertis over Ariba Contracts because of its comprehensive feature set and its advanced contract analytics capabilities. We found that Icertis provided us with more flexibility and customization options, which was important for our organization's specific needs. Additionally, the AI-driven contract insights provided by Icertis have been extremely helpful in helping us optimize business decisions and realize the full potential of our contracts.Another important factor is that Icertis is industry agnostic, while Ariba Contracts has a stronger presence in specific industries. Icertis is more suitable for a wider range of organizations and that's why in our fictional organization we selected it.Overall, both Icertis and Ariba Contracts are powerful contract management software solutions, but Icertis's advanced contract analytics and its flexibility and industry agnostic approach make it a better fit for our fictional organization.

  • Since implementing the platform, we have seen a significant reduction in the time and resources spent on contract management. This has allowed us to reallocate these resources to other areas of the business, resulting in increased revenue.
  • Additionally, Icertis has helped us to improve our entitlement and obligations management, allowing us to better track and manage our contract expiration dates, renewals, and other important dates. This has helped us to avoid costly contract renewals and stay compliant with regulatory requirements, thereby protecting us against noncompliance and penalties.
  • The platform's built-in analytics and reporting capabilities have also been valuable in helping us to gain valuable insights into our contract portfolio, allowing us to make more informed business decisions. Additionally, the platform's contract intelligence has helped us to shorten our sales cycles, which has enabled us to close more deals in less time.
