We use ContractZen to manage the contracts with our clients. This ranges from the history of the accounts, contract expiration and renewals as well as the value of each contract. Prior to using ContractZen, this was all done in an Excel spreadsheet.
  • Contract renewal notification
  • Tracking history of contracts
  • Knowing key client personnel
  • I would like one view of entire client history.
  • It would be nice to put the client information in once and then simply add on contract extensions in the same folder.
This is a big step up from our use of an Excel spreadsheet to manage hundreds of clients. There is more functionality in the product than we are currently using. It would be useful to learn from others how they are using the tool as we might discover some improved efficiency that we haven't considered.
They have always been very responsive to our needs, especially considering the time difference between us and customer support.

Like most organizations, we had several old, long-term contract, NDAs, proposals etc. stored on shared, protected network. This was unstructured data. Each time we wanted to know when a contract was ending, we had to open the contract. This led to us creating a spreadsheet. We thought there had to be a better way for us to get alerts when contracts are expiring and to store amendments to contracts in one spot. We reviewed several software and chose ContractZen. We migrated all of our contracts into ContractZen within a couple hours and are getting alerts as we desired. It's a cloud-based product, so no installation is needed. ContractZen is being used by Finance, IT and Legal staff right now and we are very pleased with it. ContractZen does full text search on PDFs and metadata we type in ContractZen, which makes searching for certain words a breeze.
  • Right features for SMB.
  • Affordable.
  • Easy to use.
  • Low maintenance as it is cloud-based.
  • No contract lifecycle management.
  • Governance may not be adequate for large organizations.
  • Sign-in with SSO or without SSO can be improved; it's a bit confusing for new users.
ContractZen is perfect for small and medium business where the use case is to manage contracts, get alerts, and track details about contract. ContractZen has other features such as meeting management, eSignatures etc. We focus primarily on contract management and are pleased with it. ContractZen has a lot of competition and many competitors have a full contract lifecycle, which is desirable in large companies.

ContractZen does not have a full contract lifecycle process. Full contract lifecycle will have request for comments/proposals, NDA, quotes, implementation proposals etc. go through multiple people, multiple layers of approval etc. and different triggers in the contract would generate different tasks for staff to manage the contract till the contract expires. Large and complex companies have needs that ContractZen may not be suitable for.
The best part about ContractZen is that I needed no support. I had a couple questions in the last 2 years which were answered accurately within hours. Everything has worked as expected.

The centralized management and repository for contract housing and management of ContractZen helps make me more efficient. Reminders for contract expiration and quick download of all contracts for fast view is key to the desirability of the product. [ContractZen] has considerably cut down the amount of time needed to find key contracts when questions arise day to day.
  • Download of all entries
  • Reminders
  • Searchability indexes
  • Customability
Affordability is key.
Have not needed much but available when I do have questions

ContractZen is being used by our corporate, administrative and sales functions. The main use cases of the system are the secure storage of contracts, the retrieval of contract data for invoicing, the alerts of pending critical dates of contracts and electronic signing of contracts both with clients and with subcontractors.
  • The easy storage of contracts is important. Easier than a shared hard drive folder or a jointly administered Excel sheet, both of which we tried to use in the past.
  • The alerts of key contract dates is crucial. Knowing what needs to be terminated or at least considered has saved us money.
  • Simple signing of contracts electronically has saved us money in getting from an agreed to contract to a signed one in minutes.
  • The iPhone application is underpowered, I suggest using the web version also on mobile devices.
ContractZen is perfect for a team or SMB use case. We use it to store all contracts: HR, services bought, subcontractors and sales. The benefits are somewhat different for different types of contracts, but having all in the same place is a benefit in and of itself.
The issues we've had have been solved quickly via standard email support.

I found ContractZen extremely useful and handy in managing all documentation in relation to my property investment activities. Bids and agreements are always one click away and easy to distribute between parties. ContractZen has both a mobile and desktop version, this is very important from a user experience point of view.
  • Intuitive and easy to use.
  • Good metadata structure.
  • Also has a desktop (browser) version.
  • Sharing and collaborative working with documents is one of the handiest I've seen in comparable systems.
  • ContractZen is almost as good as heavy duty doc management system, it can be mistaken to be one.
  • Admin interface [not intuitive] - needs some practice.
  • Sharing and working with documents added with e-signature functionality is very good and easy to use.
  • If one is looking for departmental doc mgmt/project room system only - go for something else.
