HelloSign is a popular eSignature solution, and is even used by some contract management platforms to provide enable contract signing where native signature is lacking. But while HelloSign offers a cost-effective option for basic signature requirements, many of the essential features legal teams need are lacking. Similarly, many of the key features are only available on premium plans, meaning HelloSign can quickly become a costly proposition.

Key pain points that users encounter with HelloSign are:

  • Unexpected limitations: templates and recipients can be restricted in number, meaning users face barriers to getting business-critical documents signed. This can create bottlenecks, friction and unexpected costs
  • Unresponsive support: support is delivered via email, without dedicated customer success managers, and users have reported delays and long turnaround times when trying to resolve issues with their workflows
  • Lack of flexibility: HelloSign's PDF-based workflow makes changes and collaboration difficult, leading to clunky user experience
  • No data layer: key metadata isn't captured, making it hard to search and report on your contract data

For a deep set of features to 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.

Juro benefits

✍️ More than just eSignature

Signing contracts is a key part of growing your business, but it's just one part of the contract lifecycle. If HelloSign forms part of your contracts process, then you're probably also using Word, emails, PDFs and shared drives too - creating friction and delays as you switch between systems. Juro is an all-in-one contract automation platform that replaces all these tools with just one, enabling you to create, negotiate, sign, manage, track and renew contracts - all in one unified workspace.

💗 A platform that scales with your company

There's nothing worse than hitting an in-product limitation that blocks you from getting a deal over the line. If the numbers of templates you need to create and contracts you need to sign are increasing, that's great - it means your business is growing! That's why unlike HelloSign, Juro has no limit on templates, nor signatures - the platform is built to scale

along with your business, and we're here to help you make that happen. 

💬 Real-time chat support and a dedicated CSM

Fast-growing businesses don't have time to wait for an email response to a burning issue. That's why Juro offers real-time chat support, and a dedicated customer success manager to make sure you're never left alone with a bottleneck that's blocking your company's most important documents.

With an average response time of under five minutes, and category-leading ratings for quality of support (9.7/10) and ease of admin (9.8/10) from independent G2 reviews, you can feel confident that we're as committed to your success with Juro as you are.

🌐 A browser-native editor built for contracts

PDFs are useful but they have obvious limitations. As an offline file format, they don't capture metadata, they're inflexible, making collaboration difficult and rich analytics almost impossible. Juro's editor is custom-built on a JSON data layer, so that your contracts are born as structured data, making them truly dynamic digital documents. 

Juro's editor also allows for rich media, advanced features like conditional logic, and sidebar collaboration to get your contracts over the line faster - and help everyone agree more.

➕ A data-rich repository for your key documents

For fast-growth businesses approaching key milestones like M&A, funding rounds or huge partnership deals, it's not good enough to simply have a shared drive of PDFs. You need to quickly and accurately know what's actually in them. Juro contracts are searchable from day one, meaning you can query and manipulate contract data at scale easily, using custom table views and dashboards. Never miss a renewal deadline again, thanks to a data-rich repository that tells you a whole lot more than simply whether contracts are signed or not.

Flexible pricing for scaling businesses

Looking at HelloSign's offering as a whole, it's clearly a robust and powerful option when it comes to signatures, with advanced security features and strong integrations with shared drive solutions. But signing is just one part of the contract story for fast-growing businesses - and one that can become both expensive and limiting if you rely only on an eSignature solution like HelloSign to handle contracts end-to-end.

If you're considering your budget in the context of the entire contract lifecycle, rather than just signature, Juro's flexible plans start at free, and offer simple, user-based pricing that means you don't need to worry about any nasty surprises when contract volume increases as your business grows.

HelloSign is rated on G2 with ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.7/5), with 37 1-3 star reviews, and on Capterra with ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.6/5) with 18 1-3 star reviews.

The below are verified HelloSign reviews from 2021, available on G2:

There are unmentioned restrictions such as limits on people you can send it to, and how many documents you can send in 24 hours. Compound that with unavailable customer service. If you're providing such a critical enterprise solution, and you have customer service that doesn't respond in 24 hours, that is a significant killer

Configuring the signatures is clunky. It's not clear how I can fill in certain types of information

Lack of follow-through from the support team when I experienced issues with one of my templates

Some documents fail to upload, when I reached out to support, it took a month going back and forth to try to figure it out, the issue was never resolved and I have used my personal DocuSign account to send out the document since we needed to get things going
