Worth it for small law departments

2019-12-02

Highly efficient and once heavy lifting on automation was complete, easy to implement with users as very user friendly.

Pros

I can spend my time doing actual drafting work vs. more administrative customization work.

Cons

Wish there were more contract management features for organizing and managing existing executed agreements.

Contract Express - Best Document Automation Out There

2019-11-26

We're capable of generating estate planning document packages that can contain up to 15 documents and total more than 200 pages, and they're all driven by a single questionnaire within Contract Express.

Pros

Contract Express makes it very easy to automate documents. You can program small, simple documents in a very short amount of time.

Cons

This is a minor quibble, but the documentation at the time (back in 2016) was somewhat lacking.

Great software!

2019-11-22

This tool has helped us and our sales team more easily, efficiently, and quickly generate their own contracts, with all of the right reviews and approvals to ensure full compliance.

Pros

The ability to (1) easily generate complex contracts; (2) the negotiation feature to ensure all changes are caught and accounted for; (3) the manner in which generated contracts are able to be routed for approval to different individuals/teams, if/when it is required; and (4) the great help and support from their customer service team.

Cons

It is a little difficult to learn how to create contract templates without some training.

Can't live without it!

2019-11-27

Our overall experience has been hugely valuable to our department. It has saved our team hundreds and hundreds of hours over the years and we can't imagine going back to the way we worked before.

Pros

Utilizing business rules for different templates allows us to calibrate and spot higher-risk legal issues and ensure we are spending our time on higher business value programs.

Cons

There are also some limitations in the design/flow/customization of the questionnaire but it's things that would be more "nice to have" and are not a requirement to using this software successfully.
