Superior tool, compared to others I have used in the past.
Automated process; everything in a single application (i.e. repository, eSignatures, internal reviews/approvals); reduction in contracting cycle time; great reporting tool.
It automates a number of steps within the contract process, thus reducing the strain on resources to move a contract through a manual process. In addition, you can track Projects, budgets, and send out automated notifications, based on criteria determined by business needs.
The only thing that is challenging is the need for a separate licenses for sending documents for electronic signatures ("eSignatures"). Conga does offer Conga Sign, however, it is an application built for another sales platform.
Game Changing Solution
I’ve been a Novtaus/Conga Administrator and developer for more than 4 years now, for multiple companies. Conga Contracts’ ease of implementation, ability to automate and track processes, and report to a granular scale has been life changing.
Conga Contracts has been able to drastically increase the efficiency of Nimbus’ processes for requesting, approving, negotiating, executing, and storing and tracking agreements. What used to take 6-8 people about a week to execute a simple NDA now takes 1-3 people a day or two, sometimes less.
Not really a con, but the system doesn’t automatically integrate with other systems or repositories, but Conga’s API and integration add-ons will easily solve that.
Cumbersome to set up
Once things are setup, it is very easy to use. Easy to turn on licenses for users. Documents look very consistent.
The support and sales teams leave a lot to be desired! Very hard to get someone on the phone, if you need an additional license, it is like pulling teeth to get it activated!
Awesome Automated Contract Management Tool
It's been pretty good minus the pain points listed above. I greatly appreciate the time I get back by using automated templates, which allows me to spend my time on more complex agreements with specialized language.
The ability to generate agreements based on customized templates using a generation wizard.
The lack of support with implementation, the length of time to correct new errors caused by system updates, the amount of time required to customize templates and workflows.
Conga Advocate of Change
The full CLM software capabilities. The ability to have full transparency into our Contract Data. I also enjoy how we are able to customize almost all of our fields to accommodate the constantly changing regulatory environment.
The downtime if there is an issue. Support works well on the cases but support can be improved.
CLM Power House
great, we love it!
user friendly from the admin side
messaging integration and auto pulling into the system
removal of features that are being used with the not ability retain
the design of the toolbar
response and time it takes for enhancement requests
Constant Account rep changes and limited communication
This application is a great way to store and track your contracts through its entire review lifecycle. Able to build in automatic status changes with Flow and Workflow.
Ability to report on all fields, but would be great if Flow reports did not require the add-on. I miss Analytics but hear BI Intelligence may be a good option.
getting more views of contracts; being involved the process more.
storage place for documents
ability to run reports on documents
uniformity of info and documents in company
Ability to give multiple users different access
lack of access to training materials; response time of support when there are system errors
Contracts made easy
Great contract software
Increased efficiency with better customer customization!
We are looking to solve the problems we have with nationwide contracts that are negotiated annually with 60% returning business and 40% new. Contracts would allow us to move from an individually crafted-from-scratch version of excel/word docs to a more cohesive and professional arrangement.
The ability to visualize the contracts with the higherarchy taken into co side ration saves vast amount of time. From the intuitive layouts to the customization, contracts are easy to assemble and user friendly.
There is a learning curve for new users and a need to embrace the entire Conga suite to really make the most of your products, but with patience and by utilizing their resources, it is all manageable.
Easy to use and intuitive contract management tool.
I love how customizable Conga Contracts is. We are able to easily and rapidly adjust the system to meet our ever changing business needs.
I wish system enhancements would come more quickly. Customer's regularly identify system enhancements that would improve system functionality and usefulness but Conga's decision on whether to implement those enhancement requests tends to take awhile.
We use Conga to produce temporary cards for members
Conga allows us to produce temporary cards for members with personalized information on each card. This has allowed us to alleviate stress while members cards typically take about 2 weeks to arrive.
Sometimes it does take some time to load and locate now that we use Box. Prior to using Box it was a breeze.
has been awesome
I have loved them from day one. was recommended by a developer and I have been happy since day one. A little difficult at first if you are not used to embedding fields in a word doc but once you get that, it is cake.
Very fast, customizable, efficient.
a little difficult on the front end but then, no worries. VERY good customer service
It is a great tool that allows my company to manage our contracts, find documents and complete the end to end process. The support team is amazing and the ability to use where ever you have an internet connection is very helpful.
It is easy to use, easy to configure and is constantly being updated to bring more functionality to allow users to work smarter.
The reporting needs to be a bit more flexible and easy to use. It is being updated but it still could be better.
Simplified workflow and negotiation process for organization
Great, configurable application for organizations of all sizes
I've enjoyed it so far, especially as a end user....looking forward to developing it further and to seeing what all is ahead for us with AI Advance!
It is configurable! It has a "newer" look and feel and is user friendly. During the configuration, we found out that it is customizable for our lines of business, which is a huge plus.
We would like to see increased capabilities around security and permissions for specific contracts and documents (and the capability to change and modify those roles on the end user side when we can).

Conga Contracts = Ease of Use and Administration
Overall, the experience has been amazing. The support and deployment of the product was seamless. From there, it was easy to maintain and grow. We are looking to expand it across more of the business and use Orchestrate to do so.
Ease of contract generation, customization, and process management.
One key aspect that our teams love is that the Conga Contracts redlining functionality works regardless if the client/user has Word track changes enabled. Contracts will still catch any and all changes. This is a life saver!
I would love to see the capabilities increased! I understand that with Orchestrate, you can code in more automation. It would be great to see these bundled!
We needed a friendly, easy to install, and maintain Vendor Management tool. It had to be a time saver, adaptable, repeatable, and workflow driven product in order to accomodate the on-boarding process for both of our IT and Indirect business models.
With Novatus, all of the requirements were met. Actually, we were able to take advantage of and introduce more of the products functional capabilities during the install than we had initially anticipated.
Using the tool now for the past 4-5 years, we have come to realize that without it, we would still be paying potential late fee penalties for late renewals; we would still have some compliancey issues with some of our vendors; we would still be bringing in vendors whose contracts contained very risky language, and so on.
The use of the Novatus has basically provided or avoided cost to us that fall way into the six figure range. In terms of Support, its second to none. If a problem arises, its typically resolved in less than 15 minutes and at this point I can only remember 1 instance where that occured over the years.
At this point Novatus is not just a vendor, they are a true partner and will be here for a long time.
Conga Contracts Rocks - Digitial Trasnsformastion in Action
Just starting out but it looks great!
The support you get is amazing. Their teams stand behind every aspect of the product and are continually listening to user feedback to improve it.
There is so much functionality in the basic license and it only grows with every add on. Everything can be configured for your exact procedures.
There is a lot of set up work needed to get the full benefit of the product. Take the time needed to set it up and keep auditing your usage to be sure it’s being used to the design.
