But how does it measure up for teams outside of sales that also handle contracts on a regular basis - such as legal? How intuitive is the platform? And, if you’re part of a high-velocity business looking to automate contracts as soon as possible, how long does implementation take?

Conga is a popular solution for sales teams, and has a strong Salesforce integration to help sales streamline their contracts. But it may struggle to meet the needs of legal teams at high-growth businesses, and can require heavy implementation.

The key pain points users encounter with Conga include:

  • Costly implementation: implementation requires heavy investment, and may require the input of a developer - which can get costly, especially at a SaaS business

  • Lack of flexibility: the contract process still lives in Word, which makes it really difficult to design engaging contracts and change the formatting of the document

  • Confusing UI/UX: According to independent reviews (see below), Conga’s template building feature is confusing. Users also claimed the process was clumsy, and required technical expertise

  • Time-consuming process: document generation takes up a lot of time, which slows down the entire workflow, having a negative impact on time to value and ease of setup

For a deep set of features 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.

Conga alternatives: all-in-one contract automation

If Conga isn’t working for you and you need a solution that is both easier and faster to implement and understand, there are alternatives out there that might be perfect for you.

  • eSignature and email: if you need a solution that covers signing only, then there are many electronic signature solutions you can implement and integrate with email, which limits the automation of contracts to signing only. If you are only interested in eSignature, it might be worth checking out some DocuSign alternatives. 

  • Document generation alternatives: there are plenty of document generation platforms out there for sales teams at SMEs and enterprise businesses. These include: PandaDoc, DealHub, DocuSign CLM, Qwilr, Proposify and more. Browse through the full list on G2.

  • All-in-one contract automation: Juro’s all-in-one platform enables you to create, negotiate, agree and manage contracts without ever leaving the browser. If you’re looking for a unified workspace for contracts, that’s easy to implement and use by both legal and the teams they enable, get in touch. Implementation time is 21 days on average - and you can try Juro for free.
