Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

It is well suited in the organisations which deals with lots of paper work like legal, teaching, research, etc as they need similar kind of documents again and again. In a typical office set up it is of great use by human resource, marketing and legal department. Hot docs is not suitable if you have a proprietary or solo business as it do not caters to them.

Using HotDocs is a good idea for any firm that produces a significant number of documents, especially if the bulk of those documents are template-based. Employees become significantly more productive by reducing the amount of time they spend developing papers using templates rather than creating documents from scratch.

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.

HodDocs definitely has a place where it helps with efficiency. For instance, when drafting documents, HotDocs can make it a quick process by simply answering questions. The challenge though is developing the questions and basic shell. I would probably use it more if it was easier to build new documents. But for existing documents, it's easier to modify (depending on the level of modifications).

It is well suited for a "medium" user -- it is too hard to set up for a typical paralegal and too limited for someone with advanced and complicated needs. If you are the "Goldilocks" user, it is just right. If you are on either end, there could be other programs that might be a better fit.

HotDocs is useful for any company that generates a large number of documents, especially when a majority of the documents are template-based. The time used for creating documents from templates without document generation makes employees much more efficient.

HotDocs is a MUST for a law firm or any company that uses forms, contracts or similar documents. Generation of documents with HotDocs (after the program is configured) takes a couple mouse clicks, vs find/replace, saving the same document over and over (no no for law firms due to metadata, but many do it anyway).
