Overall Satisfaction with HotDocs

HotDocs is used as a document generation application, either stand-alone or with another information source. It is question-based and extremely powerful for creating documents in the proper format and with all necessary information.
  • User-friendly and quick for producing documents.
  • Customization for templates can be easy or extremely complicated.
  • Engine always functions and produces documents quickly and easily.
  • Can accept data from another system and force necessary questions to users.
  • Most HotDocs requires high-level coding in order to create templates. This includes complicated codes to insert into Word.
  • From the user perspective, using HotDocs is very simple and easy. Creating and maintaining templates requires nearly a programming background to perform.
  • Cost for software varies but is generally a sizable cost, especially Developer licenses.
  • New versions must be purchased to keep up with newer versions of Microsoft Office.
  • Time savings by employees when generating documents mean better ROI efficiency for labor.
  • Faster, more accurate turnaround for documents needing to be generated from templates.
  • Large capital expenditure depending on the number of users and developers.
HotDocs is the industry standard for document generation.
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.
