In Real Estate sales and property management, Dotloop will be your best friend. When you need clients or tenants to sign a lease or a contract, sending through dotloop is extremely easygoing and keeps everything organized pertaining to what you name the loop. I think I speak for my whole office when I say that without dotloop, our lives would be a disorderly mess, and we would find ourselves losing papers and becoming confused. Dotloop really helps our office like no other and has great support along the way!

Sage
Sage is not at all well suited for small companies who want an agile, nimble setup for quick moving situations and mobile use. These type of companies should look elsewhere such as a SaaS offering from another vendor. In addition Sage is very expensive both in its initial outlay and ongoing support. Medium and larger sized companies benefit from a Sage install much more than the smaller constructor. Having the modules all work in unison is important when a company is of a certain size as is having the long tenured support structure. In addition Sage requires the terminals services setup to use it remotely and the larger companies are more likely to have the infrastructure and support for that type of setup

Pros
Zillow
  • Dotloop has a great user interface. The features that seem small but are a huge help such as automatically scrolling to where the person needs to review and sign is very creative.
  • It has been great to be able to pull documents from the app on a mobile device to a web browser on a desktop.
  • It is very easy to organize documents (add, remove, arrange, edit, etc.)

  • There are a lot of ways to drill down into information. The ability to run inquiries that can be easily exported into Excel is incredibly useful.
  • The help desk is very helpful. There are multiple ways to get a hold of someone and it is extremely useful.
  • The knowledgebase articles are very helpful and provide a lot of great detail.

Cons
Zillow
  • The viewing could be a bit more user friendly when opening from different types of devices.
  • It would be nice if there was an alert that clients don't need to try to login when opening a document since they don't have an account.

Sage
  • Lack of data validation and controls
  • Extremely limited report configuration without significant customization
  • Too many arbitrary limits like vendor name that forced partial names into the address
  • Very outdated UI
  • Very siloed forcing users to open different applications for different functions

Usability
Zillow
While the admin and setup involve a learning curve, the ease of use for clients, even for complete novices to online document signing, makes Dotloop perfect as far as usability goes. We almost never have issues with clients signing documents or issues with lost/misplaced documents. It is made for people who have never signed an online document before.

Sage is somewhat easy to use as far as its simplicity, however, when I first started using it I really wished there were more training materials available. As I did research to figure out what resources were there to learn how to use the paid software, all I found were courses you have to pay for. In my personal opinion, I don't think you should have to pay to learn how to use a software you bought.

Whenever I have any issues with a loop or a document or signatures disappearing, I'm able to reach out to Dotloop and they answer promptly and appropriately. They've always been able to help me with whatever issues I have, in a timely fashion.

They have a very quick, responsive team that assists. They also have great higher-level engineers who assist in more complicated matters and all in all, you need a support team that is quick to respond when you are in the middle of business crises.

I personally feel that Dotloop is much more organized and easier to use. It feels more efficient to use and I have noticed the majority of the people I work with are more aware of Dotloop and trust it more

We currently have Sage in place which handles the majority of our business needs on the back end, but compared to some others that are on the market like Builder Trend, it does lack the client facing side of the house. To make it a better product, a client facing portal would be best so they can be up to date.

Sage
  • The accounting functions (AP, AR, GL) are mature so it does a great job with core financials. The reports are flexible so it does a good job of providing flexibility in report writing. The application is written for a workgroup so multiple people can use it at the same time. The transaction detail is strong so that a transaction can be rolled back if necessary.
