Concord Review: "Great for SMB"

Previous to our implementation of Concord we did not have a CLM in place. We knew we didn't have incredibly big asks and we wanted to focus on finding a product that fit our core needs. Our core needs being: automated template creation, multi-entity support, and automated reporting/notification of upcoming events (i.e. notice of non-renewal deadlines, tactic agreement renewals, etc.).

Due to having contractors globally, we have a fair number of documents to send to each IC on a monthly basis. In the past, we were printing, signing and scanning back the documents. This process took hours every month and was an inefficient use of our team's time. We also wanted to make sure that we didn't miss an automatic renewal, which is what originally forced the conversation to start about implementing a CLM. Had we not missed the one automatic renewal that we didn't intend to renew, we would have saved nearly our entire first year's cost of Concord. Then again, maybe without having it automatically renew, we wouldn't have found Concord. There's always a silver lining.

  • Automated templates are incredibly easy to implement. Concord also does, for the most part, very well at keeping formatting when uploading documents in Word. The only downside is if you use formulas (naming convention for contracts), if you do not copy + paste as values before uploading then it will give the contract the name of the formula.
  • User management has been and still is, a pain point for us. We operate over a dozen entities and for the most part, anyone with access to Concord on our team has the same permissions across all entities. We must manage users one-by-one so onboarding + offboarding can be tedious.
  • The analytics are basic. I wish we could slice and dice and say "Show me only contracts tagged with X tag".
Suitable:
- Simple contract management, especially bulk contract management.
Less Appropriate:
- Larger entities. Though, based on their price + features, I don't think they're focusing on the > 500 employee organizations.

Concord Review: "Great Basic Contracting Tool"

We use Concord for Statement of Work templates through the e-signature process.

  • e-signatures (with notifications).
  • Templates (upload, create, change).
  • Secure storage.
  • For what we use, we do not see any areas that are in need of improvement.
Any business that needs document collaboration and e-signatures would love Concord. It is easy to use and the free version offers robust options. If you are a small business that needs the next step up (amendments management, bulk sending, reporting, etc.) there is no middle of the road pricing. You go from free to $100/user/month so that seems to be the only downfall that I see.
