Is Concord easy to implement?
Concord's contract lifecycle management software has become a common choice for business teams looking for ways to handle contracts in one platform. Does its user experience deliver on the promise of its feature set for legal teams?
This page explores the features, limitations and pricing of Concord in comparison to Juro’s all-in-one contract automation platform.
Concord has a wide range of functionality, with lots of features available in-browser within a single tool.
But while Concord can deliver lots of value on paper, its users often run into trouble when it comes to its lengthy implementations, with UX issues and formatting causing problems for commercial teams.
This can make wide adoption difficult to achieve, with end-users falling back on manual processes in Word to plug gaps in the workflow.
Key pain points that users encounter with Concord typically include:
- Formatting: when copying and pasting or moving from Word into Concord, formatting often breaks and makes documents look messy
- Difficult set-up: implementations are typically long, and user experience when setting up templates isn't intuitive, meaning it can take months to get to value - particularly if integrations are involved
- User access levels: setting the right access levels for teams and users, particularly for large deployments, can be cumbersome and difficult
- Lightweight reporting: for teams looking for a true system of record for contracts, with the rich contracts data to go with it, Concord's reporting and analytics stack struggle to offer enough depth
For an intuitive experience that enables 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 like Juro.
✍️ Flexible editor custom-built for contracts
Juro's browser-native editor was custom-built for contracts, delivering beautiful documents that your colleagues can create from templates in seconds.
Juro's contracts are built on structured data, enabling powerful search, tagging and collaborative features - but if you really want to export to and import from Word or PDF, of course you can do that too.
⭐ The top-rated solution for ease of setup
Once you've decided to automate your contract workflow, the last thing you need is a lengthy, difficult implementation, with business colleagues struggling to adopt your solution.
Juro is the top-rated contract solution on G2 Crowd for ease of setup, with new customers typically getting to value within a few weeks, rather than the long implementation processes on offer with other platforms, like Concord.
Similarly, Juro's support is market-leading, offering unrivalled customer enablement that leads to lightning-quick adoption.
💡A contract data layer that gives deep insights
Key business teams should be capturing their data and acting on its insights, and contracts are no different.
Juro's browser-native solution gives you a contract data layer, capturing everything from your audit trails and negotiation data to your usage patterns and critical bottlenecks.
Use Juro's analytics stack and custom dashboards to unblock your contract workflow and enable the business to close deals faster.
💚 Intuitive UI that drives wide adoption
A contracts platform loved by legal is pointless if stakeholders around the business find it too difficult to use.
Juro's intuitive, simple user interface enables wide and growing adoption with key teams across the business and beyond. Features like our simple Kanban board make sure that anyone can use Juro successfully.
⚙️ Integrations with key business systems
There's more to having an integrated solution than just offering a Salesforce integration. For starters, Juro's Salesforce integration is two-way, with live data-sync, meaning contracts and their data are updated in real time in both platforms, so sales and legal are always on the same page.
But what about other key business systems? Concord offers some shared drives, but Juro integrates with Slack for collaboration, Greenhouse and Workday for HR teams, and Zapier to enable integrations on demand.
If your colleagues in other teams don't want to leave their systems of record to work with contracts, then don't make them.
Concord offers a range of pricing, starting with a free plan, albeit with limited features. This scales up to enterprise-level pricing if you want to access features like custom branding, user access levels or a dedicated customer success manager.
By comparison, Juro offers flexible plans to suit any business. Head over to our pricing page to select a plan that's right for your business.
