Yousign is a prominent European provider in the eSignature space, mainly active in France, Germany, and Italy, enabling companies to skip printing and scanning contracts and go straight to an efficient, digital process. 

However, legal and business teams at high-growth companies often need more robust, end-to-end contract workflows to help them close deals quickly and manage increasing volumes of contracts. Yousign lacks the collaborative features, as well as the powerful search and data analytics capabilities, that companies need to remain competitive and fast-moving as they scale.

Key issues users struggle with when using Yousign include:

  • A reliance on locked PDFs. Users must upload PDFs to Yousign for signature. Any revisions to contracts or discussions about revisions must occur elsewhere. This breaks your audit trail, causing you to lose negotiation data. It also costs precious time and effort as any change requires parties to restart the entire signature process.
  • No way to locate or analyse contract information. Contracts remain difficult to search within, and you have to manually discover and track dates and obligations or purchase additional contract review software.
  • Limited functionality. Independent reviewers express frustration about limitations including 1) the lack of integrations, 2) the inability to track pending signatures, 3) the lack of useful templates, and 4) the inability to add specific fields to their contracts or templates.
  • Costly. Even with its limited capabilities, Yousign pricing plans closely compare to more well-established contract lifecycle management players that offer more collaborative and automated functionalities throughout the entire contract workflow. 

For an extensive set of features that help visionary legal counsel and the business teams they enable to efficiently manage contracts in one unified workspace, consider the many benefits of an all-in-one contract automation platform.

Yousign's pricing is fairly accessible for small teams who only need limited features. However, for companies that start to scale, pricing quickly becomes bespoke, with hidden charges for all premium integrations and for single sign-on via SAML. Yousign's lowest-cost paid plan still limits users to just 10 signature requests a month, compared to unlimited signatures in Juro.

If you need more than just eSignature, Juro offers transparent pricing plans centered around serving all of your complete contract needs. Juro works for legal teams and business users across the company, automating contract creation, negotiation, signature, management and renewal functions to keep you in control of all your contracts at all times.

“Everything goes much faster, templates are easily set up and the whole contracting process is streamlined and efficient beyond expectation.”
