Does Conga work for legal?
Sales teams often turn to Conga CLM for document automation, finding value in both its native eSignature and Salesforce integration.
But how does it measure up for teams outside of sales that also handle contracts on a regular basis - such as legal? How intuitive is the platform? And, if you’re part of a high-velocity business looking to automate contracts as soon as possible, how long does implementation take?
This page explores the features, limitations and pricing of Conga's document management system compared to Juro’s all-in-one contract automation platform.
Conga is a popular solution for sales teams, and has a strong Salesforce integration to help sales streamline their contracts. But it may struggle to meet the needs of legal teams at high-growth businesses, and can require heavy implementation.
The key pain points users encounter with Conga include:
- Costly implementation: implementation requires heavy investment, and may require the input of a developer - which can get costly, especially at a SaaS business
- Lack of flexibility: the contract process still lives in Word, which makes it really difficult to design engaging contracts and change the formatting of the document
- Confusing UI/UX: According to independent reviews (see below), Conga’s template building feature is confusing. Users also claimed the process was clumsy, and required technical expertise
- Time-consuming process: document automation takes up a lot of time, which slows down the entire workflow, having a negative impact on time to value and ease of setup
For a deep set of features that 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.
⏱️ Getting to value in weeks - not months
Users claim that implementing Conga involves the time and efforts of a developer - which doesn’t cut it, especially if you’re at a scaling SaaS business, where developer time is precious.
At Juro, we aim to get you creating contracts in days, and self-serving on templates without waiting on a developer.
With an average time-to-value of 21 days from our customer success and legal engineering teams, Juro enables the end user to take advantage of collaborative workflows, data-rich contract repositories and much more - at a fraction of the time of other contracts tools.
✨ A dynamic editor built for contracts
Juro’s editor keeps the end-user of contracts in mind and allows users to create beautiful, accessible, and engaging legal documents. The rich media features in Juro allow users to brand their contracts, add images, tables, and even GIFs - without compromising on legal security.
🤗 A contracts platform anyone can use
Unlike Conga, Juro was designed to be easy to use and understand. The interface is user-friendly and intuitive - not just for legal teams, but for colleagues in the wider business. Sales teams, HR teams, finance teams, and others can self-serve on contracts from Juro’s beautiful, simplistic UI. Juro’s features, such as a native editor and natural language Q&A flow, make it easy for legal teams to ensure widespread adoption in the business.
⚡ Generate contracts at scale
As your business scales, so do your contract volumes - and the last thing you want is a contracts platform that can’t keep up. Juro is built to scale with your business, so you can create a contract in seconds, without ever leaving the browser.
Juro’s other features enable you to easily create, negotiate, agree, and manage contracts. For instance, Juro's Contract Reader means that static PDF documents live in the same repository as Juro contracts, and are automatically tagged and searchable.
Additionally, Juro's mass signing functionality enables signatories can eSign contracts on the go, without feeling inundated by volume.
These contracts live in a unified workspace, and are easily accessible through Juro's Kanban board, making it easy to manage contracts in large volumes.
With many more features designed to help you agree more, and faster, we’re here to ensure that contracts are never a blocker when you’re at a scaling business.
Whilst Conga does not have public information about its pricing, users do report a high implementation fee.
Taking Conga’s offering into account, the platform is often received well by sales teams looking to automate their sales contracts. However, contracts often impact various teams in the business - from legal to HR, to finance, and so on.
That's why Juro's all-in-one contract automation software is often deemed to be better value for money, with flexible plans to suit any business. Head over to our pricing page to select the perfect plan for your needs.
