Need a contract tool that’s easy to implement?
ContractPodAi is a contract lifecycle management software powered by AI and marketed to in-house legal counsel. The company promises greater visibility and control over your contracts, as well as features that are useful throughout the entire contract lifecycle, much like Juro.
However, due to reportedly high costs and a complex user experience, ContractPodAI often isn’t the favoured option for businesses seeking to scale and self-serve on contracts.
This comparison page explores why that is, and how ContractPodAi compares to Juro’s contract automation software. Find out more about ContractPodAi’s features, limitations and pricing below.
Although ContractPodAi is positioned as an end-to-end contract lifecycle management software, users will have to pay for and rely on a separate piece of software to sign contracts online. This is distinct from Juro which truly does allow users to manage contracts from creation, through collaboration, negotiation, signature and beyond, in one secure platform.
Additionally, ContractPodAi has been criticised for being challenging to use and overly complex, which makes it difficult for business and legal teams to understand and use the platform. This can subsequently result in a lack of business-wide adoption, meaning that ContractPodAi might not be a good return on investment for your business.
ContractPodAi’s key limitations include:
- Difficult to use: numerous reviews describe ContractPodAi as complex and confusing, making it difficult for the solution to be implemented and adopted across the business - unlike Juro which is rated the #1 contract platform globally for ease of setup
- Limited search functionality: Some ContractPodAi customers report finding the search functionality difficult to navigate and confusing to use
- No native eSignature: unlike Juro which has native eSignature functionality, ContractPodAi needs to be integrated with a separate eSigning tool, which means extra costs are incurred
- Limited set of integrations: ContractPodAi integrates with Salesforce, DocuSign, Adobe Sign and some Microsoft tools, but doesn’t integrate with some of the most popular platforms, like Zapier, Slack, Greenhouse, Workday and Gmail
Visionary legal counsels in fast growing companies need a contract solution that empowers business teams to self-serve on contracts with ease.
Unlike ContractPodAi which can be too complex for widespread business adoption, Juro’s contract automation software makes it quick and easy for business and legal teams to collaborate on contracts in one unified workspace.
Let’s explore the various benefits of using Juro for your contracts, and how Juro’s browser-native editor makes the end-to-end contracting process frictionless for users - no matter how experienced they are.
✍️ Rich-text contract editor
Juro’s rich text editor makes it quick and easy to create, edit and amend contracts, with the ability to add rich media like images, tables and GIFs and make legal agreements more human.
Juro users can choose to create beautifully designed contracts from scratch or use automated templates, conditional logic and natural language Q&A to build contracts in seconds - with or without legal expertise.
🌐 Collaborate on contracts in real-time
Juro eliminates the need to track changes across multiple files, as Juro’s contract negotiation functionality empowers legal and business teams to comment and collaborate on contracts securely in one unified workspace.
Juro users can leave externally facing comments and internal comments, which allows them to collaborate on contracts privately. Juro also enables users to set up approval workflows and control which edits are visible to external parties, putting your contracts in the best possible position for success.
📈 Capture valuable contract data
Unlike ContractPodAI which reportedly makes it challenging to search and query contract data, Juro allows users to capture critical contract data in seconds, with a data rich contract repository, real-time dashboard and powerful search functionality.
Since Juro creates contracts as structured data, business and legal teams can quickly search and query important contract details like renewal dates, cost per transaction and the status of certain contracts.
☝️ Replace several tools with one
Contract tools should reduce the number of tools you rely on and streamline your contract management process. Juro does just that.
Unlike ContractPodAi which relies on an external eSignature provider in order to sign contracts, Juro offers a contract automation solution that truly provides end-to-end functionality, with all of the features you need to create, edit, review, approve, sign, manage and audit contracts in one place, for one price.
ContractPodAi does not advertise any prices for their plans, nor do they discuss what is included in certain plans, or how they charge customers.
This lack of transparency makes it difficult to determine how affordable the solution is, and what is included. The software is, however, rumoured to be expensive - particularly as users must purchase a separate eSignature software package separately.
Not only that, but some users have also expressed concerns about additional costs that are incurred on top of the annual charge, like migration fees. This makes ContractPodAi a less attractive solution for scaling businesses, as it can mean that the price can increase dramatically as your business grows.
Juro offers flexible plans to suit in-house legal teams in companies of all sizes. Check out our pricing page to select a plan that’s right for your business.
