SignRequest provides an easy way to send and receive documents that require an electronic signature. It is one of the most affordable business solutions for getting documents signed electronically, and users find it fairly easy to use without a lot of training.

However, SignRequest is an eSignature tool, so may not be suitable for legal and business teams seeking a system with end-to-end contract workflow functionalities that enable them to create, review, negotiate, manage, and renew business agreements at scale, all in one place. 

According to reviews, key issues experienced by SignRequest users include:

  • Inefficient document prep process. Adding a signature field is a tedious and time-consuming process. It involves identifying the location to sign, identifying the field as a signature field, selecting who should sign, and then manually re-sizing the field.
  • Inadequate templates. Customers have limited access to a template function and it is difficult to use. Without the ability to customize and automate your contract templates, you can’t avoid the tiring document preparation process.
  • Inability to edit during processing. If you notice any mistakes, you cannot revise and resend your current document in SignRequest. Users have to abandon the progress made, fix the error, and start afresh.
  • No clarity or insight into contract portfolios. SignRequest lacks a useful way to organize and understand contract portfolios, unlike some software that provides a clear and informative dashboard.

In scaling businesses, visionary legal counsel and the business teams they support require an extensive set of features to efficiently manage, collaborate on and sign contracts. With an all-in-one contract automation platform, they can do all of these things in one unified workspace.  Let’s consider the many benefits of an all-in-one contract automation platform.

 

Juro benefits

🛠 Automated workflows and contract templates

Unlike SignRequest, Juro is custom-built to accommodate all stages of the contract lifecycle - not just the eSignature. With automated contract routing and tracking, users can ensure that reviews, approvals, and signatures go according to plan. Juro users can also set up alerts to ensure workflows progress on time and in the sequences decided by the contract owner. Juro’s automated workflow even includes an easy Q&A process that enables business colleagues to self-serve on standard contracts, using the templates provided by legal.

🌐 A unified contract workspace

 Juro provides a single workspace in which to unify all your contracts and your contract processes. Legal teams and business users can create, review, negotiate, sign, manage, and renew contracts without ever leaving Juro. What's more, contract owners, internal stakeholders, and external parties can all collaborate on a contract in real-time on one, browser-based platform. Juro's unified workspace provides your company with the structure, transparency, and flexibility you need to manage an ever-growing number of contracts.

✍️  Convenient, real-time editing

While SignRequest doesn’t offer contract negotiation or review features, Juro is designed specifically to allow parties to collaborate on and make instant edits to a live contract. Juro’s custom-built editor allows internal and external parties to leave comments in the sidebar to flag friction points, clauses that are awaiting approval, or ones that require further negotiation. Juro users can even tag additional stakeholders to request their insights on specific issues, and legal teams can retain control by restricting certain text edits and determining who can see what comments.

📊 Up-to-date dashboards and data analytics 

In contrast to SignRequest, Juro captures critical data from your contracts, including but not limited to the status of a contract, the owner, renewal dates and cost per transaction. You can query Juro’s structured, data-rich repository in multiple, intuitive ways to instantly locate and audit all your contract information. Juro uses have access to data-driven dashboards that allow teams to stay up to date and access, evaluate, and share the contract metrics that matter most. Keeping track of your contract data means you'll never miss another contract renewal again.

SignRequest pricing vs Juro pricing 

SignRequest offers a free plan with limited options for a single user. Its Professional plan starts at $7 per month for each user, and its Business plan starts at $12 per month for each user. This low-level pricing is in line with other products and software that lacks additional capabilities beyond simple eSignature functionality.

Juro offers transparent, flexible, all-in-one pricing plans that suit any business, including a free plan. Pick the plan that’s right for you.

SignRequest may offer a good price for a basic eSignature solution, however, their product is restricted to basic eSignature functionalities and lacks the useful functions that fast-growing business and legal teams need to streamline and quickly agree on the increasing numbers of contracts they deal with. 

Juro is an all-in-one workspace that goes beyond eSignature and automates your contract workflows from creation right through to post-signature analytics. As a result, scaling businesses that use Juro benefit from more accurate, efficient, and reliable contract processes that are optimized for value.

SignRequest is rated on G2 with ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.6/5), with thirty-five 1-3 star reviews, and on Capterra with ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (4.7/5) with twelve 1-3 star reviews.

The below are from verified SignRequest reviews from 2021, available on G2 and Capterra:

“It is time consuming every time I have to set up a document. I should be able to drag and drop signature spots, and also have a template that locates signatures in the same place on future documents."

“I am not fond of the prep time it takes to get the paperwork ready. Especially when there is a lot of paperwork to sign.”

“You cannot edit an email once it has been sent. for example if you have typed an incorrect email address, you have to start a whole new document, you cannot resend and edit the detail. This can be quite frustrating when you have a complex document with lots of signature fields and people who require signing.”

“The dashboard of documents is not remarkable, should be a way to organise the documents I have complete and the ones pending signature.”

“We've cut down the time taken to create a contract by 96% and also made tracking of signatures much more visible.

"Easy to learn, intuitive user interface, anyone can use it without training. The Q&A function is amazing and lets me as a legal person focus on contracts which actually require my expertise in drafting and negotiating. The future is here!"
