Why choose SpotDraft over IronClad or DocuSign CLM?

When Ani Bhat, General Counsel at HealthEC, described SpotDraft as the Ironman Suit for the In-house counsel, he was referring to how the SpotDraft platform allows him to automate routine tasks - thereby allowing him to focus on higher leverage activities.

SpotDraft vs Ironclad vs DocuSign

SpotDraft
SpotDraft allows companies to scale legal throughput without adding more headcount. Teams can configure custom workflows and collaborate internally to process contracts faster and more accurately.
IronClad
IronClad, a once modern digital contracting platform, has now become prohibitively expensive and still does not offer native support for a vital part of the contracting flow - signing.
DocuSign
DocuSign CLM suffers from a nightmarishly long implementation cycle, poor support, and a clunky user experience, as reported by several customers.

Top reasons to choose SpotDraft over IronClad and DocuSign CLM

Instant ROI

The IronClad team takes a minimum of two months to operationalize your first workflow. With DocuSign CLM, you will be working with an outside vendor for the implementation, often leading to unplanned costs and unpredictable timelines. With SpotDraft, you will get up and running in the first few weeks - a far more immediate ROI.

Deep Insights into your Contract Workflow

Unlike our competitors, SpotDraft provides deep insights into the contracting workflow via its flagship contract-specific analytics solution - SpotInsights. You will be able to answer questions like “How long was a contract with the counterparty vs. my team?”. These insights will improve the contracting process and make the entire business more efficient.

Competitively Priced

SpotDraft is the frontrunner when it comes to value for money. We believe in enabling your entire business at a fraction of the cost that other competing solutions charge.

Increasing legal capacity without increasing headcount

Onboarding a modern CLM solution will streamline and operationalize the routine work - thereby allowing you to do more with less. With SpotDraft, our customer success team will help you drive adoption across your organization, thereby enabling you to focus on the highest leverage activities.

Better adoption by integrating with your company’s Tech stack

Most CLM implementations by companies like IronClad and DocuSign CLM fail because the business stakeholders often do not adopt the new solution. SpotDraft solves this problem by integrating with your business teams’ tools, which, in turn, leads to faster adoption and greater efficiency across the entire organization.

"Great product and great team!"

I've really enjoyed work with the Spotdraft team. We switched to SpotDraft as other CLM's functionality were clunky and not intuitive.
Leslie Ann L, Associate Counsel, Commercial | Buoy Health

Industry-leading Customer Support across all Plans

Our competition, IronClad and DocuSign CLM, provides white-gloved customer support - but at a cost. We believe that exceptional customer support is critical to the success of any new software rollout - and we offer this at no cost. We set up shared chat channels (Slack, Teams, Whatsapp) with our customers to collaborate and solve their problems in near real-time.

Flexible Hosting across Geographies

SpotDraft is the ONLY modern contract management solution in the market that allows the customer to pick the region where they want their data hosted. With IronClad and DocuSign CLM, your data (by default) is hosted in the US, which may or may not meet the regulatory requirements where your company is based.

The specific problem we were looking to Spotdraft to solve was to provide a single, secure and easily searchable repository of all our contracts. Spotdraft has solved that problem for us. But it has also brought significant additional benefits, particularly around the execution of template contracts.
