Why companies look for Conga alternatives

“It felt outdated and slow.”
“The support and sales teams leave a lot to be desired! Very hard to get someone on the phone.”
“Its pricing can be prohibitive for smaller businesses. Additionally, the search functionality could be improved to make it easier to find specific contracts.”
“Not always user friendly, duplicates.”
“Conga templates are not easy to design. They require an extensive amount of knowledge in HTML.”
“You need separate licenses to send documents for electronic signatures. Conga does offer Conga Sign, however, it is an application built for another sales platform.”
“DocuSign integration is clunky.”
“Generating documents seems to take an eternity.”
“Getting support from Conga to assess and improve our CLM was painful and everything was expensive.”
“You need to embrace the entire Conga suite to really make the most of your products.”
“Time taken to correct errors caused by system updates is not great.”
“Makes us feel like our issue is not big enough for them to address.”

Why you should choose SpotDraft as your Conga alternative

“SpotDraft has helped cut our contract review and extraction time in half.”
“I was most impressed by their incredibly professional and organized implementation process.”
“I can never go back to editing templates in Word.”

“The editor feature is definitely a differentiator that our legal team enjoys the most.”
“SpotDraft's focus on being the best CLM tool in the market is very apparent in the care and thoughtfulness of the solution's design.”
“The best part with SpotDraft has been the level of customization the tool offers. Our agreements get kinda complicated yet we have them all well set within the platform.”

Why do companies choose SpotDraft over Conga?

Conga isn’t an all-in-one solution.

Conga provides CLM automation through a suite of products, such as Conga Sign and Conga CLM. This can not only get confusing but also add on to costs as each product solves specific aspects of the contracting process. With SpotDraft, you get an end-to-end solution that powers your entire contract lifecycle from one platform.

I wish we'd found SpotDraft sooner! It has been a game-changer for our workflows and contract management processes.

SpotDraft offers competitive pricing, even as you scale.

Unlike Conga’s volume-based and individual solution-based pricing, SpotDraft provides simple and transparent pricing that remains fair even as your company grows and the legal function scales. We also provide free implementation and support for all our customers, unlike our competitors who charge for these services.
“SpotDraft has the best mix of functionality and reasonable pricing. We've been using SpotDraft for most of our contract flow and signing. It has made getting agreements out for signature much easier.”

We’ll get you set up in as early as 2 weeks.

With Conga, you’ll have to pay to get an external vendor to implement your CLM, and it could take 6 months or even longer. SpotDraft, however, has an in-house implementation program that’s included in every license and ensures adoption through unlimited training sessions and a dedicated success manager.
“I love working directly with their customer success/onboarding team. They have been incredible partners and so easy to work with.”

Conga still uses Word as its editor.

Word’s great, but modern legal teams need more. With Conga, you’ll need to use Word as your contract editor and switch apps for the rest of the process. On the other hand, while SpotDraft is 100% Word compatible, our purpose-built contract editor stands out for its flexibility in enabling contract creation, collaboration, and more.

“SpotDraft has massively reduced our turnaround time for creating and approving contracts. The ability to go from template contracts to a fully-functional Editor really helps manage our end-to-end contracting workflow.”

Using SpotDraft doesn’t require technical expertise.

Conga users have mentioned the software’s complexity leading to confusion — which can be disastrous in terms of adoption and seeing ROI on your CLM. Unlike our competitors, we’ve built our CLM solution to enable teams regardless of technical expertise, from easy to set up self-serve templates to an intuitive repository and search module.
“SpotDraft’s system is straightforward, intuitive, and easy to use, both for administrators and users, who have adapted to it very quickly.”

Industry-leading support for every customer.

Users of Conga have reported difficulty in getting support and lack of sufficient response. Unlike Conga and our other competitors, we strive to maintain high standards of customer support and offer hands-on, dedicated customer service to help resolve issues as swiftly as possible.
“The easy-to-use functionalities added with SUPERB customer support and implementation made the transition to SpotDraft a smooth process.”
