Eversign allows companies to acquire remote signatures on contracts, but can eversign also address all your end-to-end contract needs?
Eversign is a popular cloud-based eSignature tool used to obtain electronic signatures on contracts and forms. The simplicity of using eversign (styled with a small e) has helped many freelancers and companies switch to remote signing during the pandemic. But does eversign offer the comprehensive feature set that growing companies need to support the entire contract lifecycle, from creation all the way through to renewal?
Let’s explore the features, pricing and limitations of eversign in comparison to Juro’s all-in-one contract automation platform. Use the menu below to navigate this page.

Ready to try an all-in-one contract automation platform? 👇
eversign is well liked for its simplicity and ease as an eSignature tool. Users simply upload a PDF document to eversign and select where to insert a signature field. Parties no longer have to manually print, sign, fax, scan, or email contracts for signature. Professionals find eversign fast and easy to use with minimal instruction.
But fast-growing businesses often need more extensive features to handle the specific needs of creating, reviewing, managing and negotiating contracts, beyond simply signing them. Legal teams today look for ways to capture contract data and act on its insights, not just eSign documents.
Key issues users struggle with when using eversign are:
- No real-time editing: Parties are unable to collaboratively edit contracts in real time. Revisions must be made in the original software where the contract was created, and parties must restart the eSignature process once those edits are made.
- Inflexible: eversign users feel restricted and express the desire to do things like 1) add more field types to contracts, 2) add placeholders for initials on every page, 3) customise the messages signers receive, and 4) change who receives email notifications of signatures.
- Unintuitive design: eversign may be easy to use, but users say its outdated interface is limited in its design and the document editor doesn’t offer enough features.
- Inability to report on contract data: Contracts contain critical business data concerning renewal dates, revenue amounts, and potential liabilities that eversign users are unable to automatically locate, track, or report on.
Today’s visionary legal counsel and the business teams they enable need to collaborate in one unified workspace when creating, negotiating, approving, signing and managing contracts. An all-in-one contract automation platform offers extensive features that deliver many advantages beyond just eSignature. Let's look at the benefits of using Juro to handle contracts and agreements.
🌐 Real-time collaboration
eversign does nothing to eliminate the manual processes involved when parties use Word and PDF to create multiple parallel versions of contracts and save them locally. By way of comparison, Juro provides a dynamic, all-in-one digital workspace where all parties can engage in real-time remote collaboration. Parties create, review, negotiate, edit, approve and sign contracts without ever leaving Juro.
Collaborate on contracts in real time without leaving the browser.
💨 Frictionless end-to-end automation
Unlike eversign, Juro allows you to automate processes throughout the end-to-end contract lifecycle. You can build automated approval workflows that include routing, tracking and notifications to ensure parties know when action is needed. Power up your templates by adding sophisticated elements such as conditional logic and formatting. Enable business users to ‘self-serve’ new contracts on a case-by-case basis, only changing a few key fields each time through an automated Q&A format.
Use a natural language Q&A to generate contracts from templates.
📝 Advanced editing made easy
Juro’s native in-browser editor offers a modern, design-led interface purpose-built for contracts. You can add an unlimited number of custom fields to contracts to meet the diverse needs of legal and business teams. Comment in the sidebar to highlight areas that merit discussion, need approval, or require negotiation. Tag individuals and link comments to specific clauses. Hide internal comments from outside parties, control which edits and comments counterparties see, and lock contracts to prevent specific users from changing text.
Tag internal stakeholders to flag key clauses.
🔎 Analyse and query your contract data
Juro’s powerful data analytics capabilities provide you with a continual 360-degree view of the end-to-end contract workflow and your entire contract portfolio at all times. Contract dates, terms and obligations are searchable and digitally trackable. Collect, query and report on aggregated data to proactively identify opportunities to improve outcomes. Custom dashboards with table views and data visualisations ensure you never miss a renewal again.
Track key dates and fields in your own custom table views.
eversign pricing vs Juro pricing
eversign offers a 5-tier pricing plan. Its free plan offers extremely limited functionalities. The “Basic” plan supports only one user for $9.99 per month. You must move to eversign’s “Professional” plan to allow up to five users to use eversign for $39.99 per month. The “Professional Plus” plan supports 15 users for $79.99.
Growing companies may quickly feel confined by eversign’s plans. As one reviewer describes it, “We are only allowed to access an extremely limited number of users on the features we find most useful without having to upgrade our subscription.”
With Juro, you don’t need to overcommit to a plan that’s too expensive just to access the useful features you need. For example, the number of templates remains restricted in each eversign plan, while Juro offers an unlimited number of templates from its basic “Lite” plan forward.
Juro offers transparent, flexible pricing plans starting at free. Pick the plan that’s right for you and scale on your terms.
