FormSwift

FormSwift is well suited for legal and accounting firms that need to quickly create form documents. It is easier to navigate than Nolo.

HotDocs

If you are doing transactional documents, HotDocs is a game-changer. If there are only a few select variables that change while the remainder of the work mostly consists of form language, this is a program that will dramatically increase efficiency. Even the most technical and dense documents can be turned into a template, as long as you are willing to take the time to invest in future time saving.However, if the majority of the work that you are doing is not constantly repeating, this may not be the software for you.

Pros

FormSwift

  • The "Document Creator" is an excellent tool. Very easy to work with.
  • The "My Documents " area is a helpful storage area for completed docs.
  • The "Document Library" is an extremely valuable resource.
Gil Parrish | TrustRadius Reviewer

HotDocs

  • It allows you to fill a form OR to use the Q&A approach.
  • It takes a particular fact pattern and applies it over several forms.

Cons

FormSwift

  • The "Fillable Fields" area could use some additional customizable fields.
Gil Parrish | TrustRadius Reviewer

HotDocs

  • HotDocs is difficult to develop new documents as it's as complicated as programming at times. I often have to call for assistance.
  • The tables can be frustrating. It makes it hard to insert between items as you have to make sure it doesn't offset other areas.

Could be more intuitive - could even "suggest" fill-ins with the option to take or not take the suggestion.

I haven't had to contact HotDocs very often for support. I suppose I rated them mid-level simply because I would like to see more online training options or white papers to view to assist with learning. I want to understand how to do something versus having it done for me.

Alternatives Considered

FormSwift

Much better than Rocket Lawyer.

HotDocs

I haven't evaluated other products. We are so used to HotDocs that it would be difficult for us to switch to something else. We continue to use HotDocs because switching cost is high once you have already started. Be careful before beginning to use this program, as it is hard to breakaway.

HotDocs
