Emptoris

If you have a highly bureaucratic organization that is heavily focused on procurement, Emptoris can provide some value. It seemed to be very good at linking the contract information to procurement for better spend control. If you are trying to implement a standalone contract management solution that allows you to easily create contracts and store them in a central location, this isn't the tool for you. There doesn't appear to be a simplified implementation. In general, when a SaaS solution has a complicated and expensive implementation, I am very skeptical. This does not show that the vendor is trying to move customers forward on a single code base. If that many things need to be done during implementation, you are starting to customize the solution for every customer. This hurts the vendor's ability to scale and make improvements in the future.

Very easy to set up and fill contract templates with the dynamic fields. Easy to manage from a legal or business controller standpoint, and easy to use for the sales/legal/HR teams. The built-in theme editor makes it possible to design great templates by our design team. All in all a great solution for us. We're currently considering to move to the Enterprise offering to get more workspaces and then onboard our HR department.

Pros

Emptoris

  • Document protection - the Check Out contract feature is a great way to allow external parties to make modifications to contract language without the ability to accept those changes. Those redlines can then be imported back into Emptoris and reviewed or further modified as needed.
  • Notifications & reminders - you can trigger an email manually from within the system, or you can configure automated notifications andreminders to alert users when a new task is received or has aged a given amount of days, etc.
  • Interview wizard - there is a lot of value in the interview wizard. Administrators can configure screens with selecting options via check boxes, radio buttons, or typed-in values. Variables and conditions can be used to selectively populate fields within the contract or apply other options, making for a quick and convenient method to generate contracts conforming to corporate standards.
  • Field customization - administrators can customize a list of options for various fields including contract substatus, address type, and user created business term variables.
  • Approvals - many different options are available to configure approvals to trigger automatically upon presenting and/or executing the contract including specific individuals, one or more approver groups, or based upon various criteria including terms within the contract, type of contract, or the contract's owning organization.

  • PandaDoc has a user-friendly option for online quote acceptance. It takes the paperwork out of getting sign-off from busy CEO's!
  • PandaDoc notifies my entire team when a quote is accepted, in -real-time, which lets them get to work wherever they are in the world.

Cons

Emptoris

  • Reporting, Emptoris comes with standard reports which can not always can be fit into our business. This needs to be improved. I hope Emptoris is addressing this issue in their latest releases.
  • Though the feature of editing language in MS word is excellent, loading MS word takes time.

PandaDoc

  • The file management system is quite clunky. Proposals go into the root directory by default and we often find ourselves having to do a major cleanup of proposals into folders after-the-fact. Would be nice if folder selection could have a default defined for each user.
  • Lack of proper two-way data sync from Salesforce is a bit of a pain. In order to push data back into Salesforce when it's changed in a proposal, you have to set up a Zapier integration which isn't ideal.
  • PandaDoc's proposal structure isn't well-suited to multi-year proposals. We often have to create proposals with static tables instead of summary fields in order to provide pricing on a per-year basis. This is annoying and error-prone, but necessary until they enable us to create pricing table sections.
  • If you accidentally drag a module into the proposal, you have to manually delete every component in the erroneous section one-by-one. This is a HUGE pain, especially if you accidentally drag a multi-page appendix into your proposal by accident. This will almost assuredly happen at some point.

There are a lot of new, exciting products coming out in every field and I believe that there is always something better right over the horizon. If it was my choice, I would review my usage of Emptoris and other software periodically to make sure I'm using the most efficient software possible.

The above rating for the overall support from Emptoris is for their product / product support, roll out training and refresher training / ongoing training, which is not only good but superior. There is no major or reconizable bad review that can be given to Emptoris at this point in time, from where is stands.

They are quick at fixing any problems that we have had which mainly came about when we were setting up the system ready to use. They also ran through some training with the team at no additional charge and we now have a team member responsible for passing that knowledge on.

I am a fan of Ariba to be used for the entire lifecycle of Sourcing. From RFX's to cutting PO's. I feel Emptoris misses the boat on the idea of a "One Stop Shop" for all of your Sourcing/Purchasing needs
John Klucharits | TrustRadius Reviewer

PandaDoc

I have used DocuSign and HelloSign. I felt that they were too basic and even harder to set up new documents with. The formatting tools in PandaDoc are a bit clunky, but I got used to them after a few months, and am okay sacrificing a bit of usability for the versatility of the fields and tokens I can use in PandaDoc.I am sticking with PandaDoc mainly because of the templates and product catalog features. I haven't done an extensive review of other options, but these two features have saved us thousands of hours at this point, and PandaDoc's downsides are vastly outweighed by the benefits I get from it.
