Symfact Overview

What is Symfact?

Symfact is a contract and compliance management solution for users in any line of business involved in compliance and risk management, including organizational governance and entity controls. The solution serves organizations of all sizes, from departmental to enterprise implementations, and helps users actively manage contractual terms and risks. The platform enables users to manage documentation, budgets, deadlines, commitments, workflow, including secure access and analytic tools for contract management and compliance.

Symfact’s contract and document creation module enables users to create new contracts and agreements from standard clause and template libraries, including NDAs, BAAs, CDAs and more. It helps handle the entire contract life cycle for all partners and contract types, as well as optimize all contractual relationships. Contract activation features allow for contracts to be captured and stored manually, semi-automatically, or automatically within the system. The compliance module addresses compliance demands, and provides users with transparency of risks, conditions and obligations.

The platform's secure repository includes integrated archiving functionality that can be configured to unique user requirements. The reporting feature provides 15 standard default reports which can also be configured as required. Users are able to import or export files in various formats including pdf, docx, xlsx, rtf, and xml. Automatic alerts and notifications can be sent via email or via the system, to warn users of specific events such as a change of contract status or threshold breach.

Symfact enables users to track and trace an audit trail in cases when several users have the permissions to modify a contract. All tracked data can be searched and sorted by activity, user, date or time. Users are able to define data and relationships, typically between the contract and its relevant partners. Workflows and approval guidelines can be defined and managed, based on the responsibilities of the authorized users. The platform supports multi-party/language/currency features with mouse-over currency conversions.

Very positive as we could customize it exactly to our needs


Vaclav P.

Legal Entity Management (LEM)

Overall experience with Symfact was simply fantastic.

We knew and defined clearly what we want and why.
We defined our "Minimum global standards" (we kept and focus on a simple master data).
We received a great support from Symfact by the dedicated consultant [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]. He was a true partner and not a typical consultant. He acted promptly, challenged our solutions and requests, but did not force us into his solutions or ideas.

He was always looking for a sustainable solution and he passed all experiences to the project team.

Our implementation was under strong project management and our mottos were:
"Keep it simple" / "Less is more" / "Quality and completeness first".

THANK YOU [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]!

Symfact is a solid system with great features, but there is a learning curve to go through.

Elimination of many paper files and records. Closed loop view into contract creation and completion. Ability to store information, including email, related to contracts on contract records.


Elizabeth F.

User friendly software, but far the best demo we experiences when looking for a system.

Ability to customize our process and fields. The implementation (workbook) was more detailed than I imagined, but that was a benefit because it allowed to think through processes not initially on our radar. Our project lead provided exceptional service before and after the implementation.


Chris B.

Very capable contract management software with custom options

We received a quality, customizable contract management software that is able to integrate with our internal systems and send critical information to project managers that in the past may have been completely unaware of non-standard terms of engagement - allowing us to better abide by our long-standing contracts.

Pros

- I like the flexibility the tool provides as it can be customized to your needs;
- Symfact is determined to understand their customer needs and the business they are in and are not just selling a product.
- Fast access to key decision makers in the company, very responsive team

Cons

- Pricing (not the total cost) was at the beginning a challenge due to the pricing metrics they first came up with but after a few meetings and Symfact understanding our challenges we found a good solution.

Elimination of many paper files and records. Closed loop view into contract creation and completion. Ability to store information, including email, related to contracts on contract records.

Pros

The ability to create and store contracts along with electronic documents relating to each contract. Symfact is also able to act as an electronic file system, which eliminated the majority of my paper files.

Cons

Customizing the software lead to a protracted testing period that included using our team as a primary testing team during development.

Pros

User capabilities is self explanatory. The system and functionality is very clear and simple to administer. Quick response to portal inquiries.

Cons

It's not a "least" issue about the software, maybe a suggestion for something new in the feature. I'd like to see more default reports and dashboards available vs. the option to self create.

Pros

Good combination of fields and tabs for data input, searchability, and various reporting options. We use the reporting in various ways which has been quite valuable to enable us to notify others working on future projects of any unique arrangements we may have agreed to in a master contract.

Cons

It's been challenging to make updates and improvements as our business grows and we make more use of the product. A large part of this has been a lack of consistency and QA in programming. Another factor could be that the initial people who worked with us passed along the work to others, who do not have the same background/understanding of our needs and uses.
