Kira is a great due diligence tool and can be well utilised on both large and small transactions. It also has good application if you are looking to compare multiple documents against a model form document or market standard templates. Kira is less useful if you are looking to review emails (e.g. as part of a disclosure exercise); or if your review involves non-Latin based script languages.

SignNow is well suited for any situation where you need to send a document to an individual or group of people for signatures. When sending documents to groups, you can send them to everyone all at once or dictate the signing order, making it easy to customize the signing process to your unique needs.
Read full review Pros UI/UX - tagging and naming feels much easier than you'd expect machine learning to feel Accuracy - Kira's built-in models perform well out of the box Assistance - Kira's support team gets back to me same day if I have a question Read full review Ease of setting up documents that require eSignatures Ability to manage the order in which the document needs to be eSigned Tracking the status of who has signed and who hasn't Ability to 're-send' invites to team members who might have missed the original invite Ability to download the eSigned documents for internal record keeping Read full review Cons Inability to relabel smart fields to suit the review process means it is hard to align it to particular projects (e.g. it would be useful to relabel the "Assignment" smart field as "Is the contract assignable?") Not enough non-English smart fields. Needs the ability to resell user-trained smart fields in a marketplace. Output is not customizable enough. Built-in analysis tools are useful but a little basic. Read full review I was very confused at first between creating a document and creating a template. When I try to customize my message on a template I can't edit all the parts I want to on the sending message. Many of the users I've sent this don't see this right away. Often it goes into a spam folder. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
The features are too limited. The biggest issue though is the flexibility for editing existing forms without having to create a whole new form. The other issues are its payment partner options, lack of automation, and logic flow. We plan to quit this software and use other software in its place.
Read full review Usability
If our firm had more contracts in English, the usability of Kira would be rated higher. However, since we have to train clauses in Portuguese in order to use Kira, it makes its usability lower. We still are not able to fully use Kira for reading contracts in Portuguese. It takes a long time and many associate hours to make Kira usable in other languages.

In terms of core functionality - adding options for signatures, text, dates, check boxes, etc., as well as customising the body of the request, the title of the request, follow-ups / reminders for signature, etc., SignNow is great. It's really easy to navigate and use in this regard. SignNow loses points when it comes to the end-user who needs to sign. There's an option for them to either use the app (which is most prominent in the page that shows when they open the request) or to sign using their browser (which is much smaller). I had my assistant create this step by step guide for our clients, so they can complete the request the way we need them to:
As far as I'm aware, you can't make it mandatory for them to draw their signature, and there's no option to remove the prompt for them to download the app when signing on their mobile device. I really wish these were options, but they don't take away from the fact it does what it is intended to do, and it does it well.

SignNow is always available when I need it. It seems that most updates occur outside of business hours so I have full functionality when I need it most between the hours of 8am-6pm EST. There has only been I time when I experience application errors when I need to use the system but it did not last long and the issue was resolved within a few hours.

Customer Support is excellent. The online help portal is probably the best I have ever seen. Great videos with content easily found. The HelpLine is staffed by knowledgeable people. The videos have saved us providing a lot of in-house training, which we would struggle to resource. The account managers really know the product and their law firm clients and share best practices and trends.

I only used SignNow support when setting up. I uploaded a bunch of documents in the wrong place and needed assistance in moving them. Unfortunately they were not able to move the documents and I needed to upload into a different place. This is where I feel the system itself could benefit from some flexibility for their customers.

It was nice to be shown the basics of the system and be able to see or understand the specific functions our company would need to use, such as the template creation, document grouping and document group templates. Being taught on how to use these functions, made learning them much easier.
Read full review Implementation Rating
Make sure you know exactly what you need before implementation and be sure to ask how to use the most important functions of the system that you will be using.

Kira offers a lot more out of the box than other providers and is also more flexible around integrations. This, plus the clear pricing structure, is why we went for it instead of (or as well as) others. Diligen, RAVN, Leverton, Della, Seal not in list.

We looked at several different offerings such as
, but SignNow offered the same basic options for a lot less money. It was easy to implement and very user friendly. We didn't need a lot of bells and whistles which the other guys offered which honestly just complicated things.

SignNow performs all the tasks that the more expensive competition does. SignNow does not require my clients to set up an account with a user name and password. Read full review ScreenShots
