Concord has a wide range of functionality, with lots of features available in-browser within a single tool. But while Concord can deliver lots of value on paper, its users often run into trouble when it comes to its lengthy implementations, with UX issues and formatting causing problems for commercial teams. This can make wide adoption difficult to achieve, with end-users falling back on manual processes in Word to plug gaps in the workflow.

Key pain points that users encounter with Concord typically include:

  • Formatting: when copying and pasting or moving from Word into Concord, formatting often breaks and makes documents look messy
  • Difficult set-up: implementations are typically long, and user experience when setting up templates isn't intuitive, meaning it can take months to get to value - particularly if integrations are involved
  • User access levels: setting the right access levels for teams and users, particularly for large deployments, can be cumbersome and difficult
  • Lightweight reporting: for teams looking for a true system of record for contracts, with the rich contracts data to go with it, Concord's reporting and analytics stack struggle to offer enough depth 

These issues are all validated in the independent user reviews below.

For an intuitive experience that help visionary legal counsel and the teams they enable to agree and manage contracts in one unified workspace, it's worth considering the benefits of an all-in-one contract automation platform designed to be usable by anyone.

Juro's browser-native editor was custom-built for contracts, delivering beautiful documents that your colleagues can create from templates in seconds. Juro's contracts are built on structured data, enabling powerful search, tagging and collaborative features - but if you really want to export to and import from Word or PDF, of course you can do that too.

⚙️ Integrations with key business systems

There's more to having an integrated solution than just offering a Salesforce integration. For starters, Juro's Salesforce integration is two-way, with live data-sync, meaning contracts and their data are updated in real time in both platforms, so sales and legal are always on the same page.

But what about other key business systems? Concord offers some shared drives, but Juro integrates with Slack for collaboration, Greenhouse and Workday for HR teams, and Zapier to enable integrations on demand. If your colleagues in other teams don't want to leave their systems of record to work with contracts, then don't make them.

Concord alternatives: all-in-one contract automation

If you're struggling to adopt or get value from Concord, there are lots of solutions on the market that might be right for your business.

  • Sales proposal software: if what you really need is for sales teams to be able to create and send out PDF proposals for signing, then there are a range of solutions, including PandaDoc and Qwilr, that could meet this part of your solution gap.
