PandaDoc
It is very well suited for proposal/quotation/contract writing, including adding lots of marketing-type content and sales copy. It also works well for employment contracts. However, it struggles with having more than one user looking at the same document, which hinders collaboration. If you want something very flashy, it may not be the best fit, as the layouts are more simple.

Cons
PandaDoc
  • I would like to see the ability to LOCK a field instead of locking an entire block or document.
  • I would like to see more standard features that need to be part of the service instead of add-ons.
  • Would like to see an option to allow different levels of users than just the two standard options.

  • User Interface Complexity:
  • Some users find the user interface to be complex, particularly for new users. Simplifying the interface and providing more user-friendly navigation could enhance the overall user experience.
  • Customization Challenges:
  • Customizing certain aspects of the system, such as reports or templates, can be challenging. A more intuitive customization process would empower users to tailor the system to their specific needs more easily.
  • Learning Curve:
  • The platform has a steeper learning curve for some users, especially those less familiar with advanced procurement tools. Improved onboarding resources and training materials could help users get up to speed more quickly.

The reason I gave it a rating of 7 is because it's probable, but not for sure. This is because there are a few little things we don't love about pandadoc. Mostly that there is not conditional logic such as: they must either fill this field out OR this one. Also it's a little pricey. But we'll probably stay because it's good enough and a pain to switch to something new

Usability
PandaDoc
Once you get the hang of it, it's very easy to use. There can be a slightly steep learning curve to get fully in on the system. The new editor v2 has really improved usability and allows us to collaborate on documents simultaneously. Once the templates and library items are set up, a new document, whether it be a sales or HR document, takes very little time to complete.

UI is good from tech perspective Customisations and personalisations are very intuitive and allows user to make the maximum usaage of the dashboard. Integrations with existing systems matters a lot for large enterprises. Training and support is very crucial. Mobile availability enhances the overall customer experience. Feedback is underrated but comapnies take it very seriously now a days.

Performance
PandaDoc
The documents load quickly for the most part but sometimes if there are larger documents with a high number of variables it could take a bit longer to get the document to show up. Most of the time the document comes on the screen relatively quickly allowing for quick access to documents to be edited and sent out.

Support Rating

Recently I could not upload a pdf to a contract - support was very responsive and easy to work with. They got back to me the next day with an apparent fix - however when I opened the document nothing had changed. I then could not respond to the rep who was helping me because it was a "no-reply address", the problem still has not been solved and we had to make alternate arrangements to get this to the client. Never had it happen before and was only with this one contract.

Return on Investment
PandaDoc
  • Saves a ton of time of handwriting proposals.
  • It's valuable to see when a prospect or an existing client views their proposal.
  • If you have a good designer to create the templates, the proposals will look professional. The existing templates Pandadoc provides are nearly worthless and very difficult to customize.

  • We saved nearly 10% of planned costs due to the large database of vendors we created within the company as a whole.
  • Saving in time due to shortening of procurement cycles. Procurement activities were never on the critical path and were accomplished with less Supply Chain resources than originally planned.
  • In the process we created a huge database of Vendors and Pricing which well be beneficial in our future projects.
  • It is an excellent tool and just what are business required and could afford.
