In every aspectβ€”be it drafting and editing, collaboration, eSign, document controlsβ€”everything, DocuX scores better than every point solution available. It's super easy, intuitive, and fast. It works!

Top reasons Contractbook usersΒ 
look for alternatives


Basic features and functionalities- difficult for actual use


Unstable and non-intuitive UI/UX and features


Not for sophisticated or enterprise users and for all use cases


Nicolai N.


The cost for been a paying customer is to big. We are a small company and for us the cost doesn't add up. We would like to be able to use the API at a less cost, and also the possibility to have contracts expire and renew them

Sometimes it is difficult to find some buttons and features. It is a minor thing but still frustrates me sometimes. Apart from that I don't see many cons.

It is not possible to bulk export documents.

The layout options for contracts, it's not that user-friendly to edit. The fact that we cannot update contracts across users in the organization without sending new versions could also be something that could be improved.

The editor is somewhat limited in functionality (like styling of headings, dynamic table of contents etc.)

It's pretty expensive, especially if you need more seats or features like automation's. So it might not be suitable for startups or smaller SMBs. There are other tools with similar features that are cheaper.

Why choose DocuX
over Contractbook

Comprehensive, easy and intuitive

DocuX is the most comprehensive yet easy and intuitive platform for all your docs/contracts. It is mature and secure not an MVP stage level and unsecure.

Built for everyone

Admittedly, Contractbook is built for SMBs and does not have capabilities needed by complex businesses, enterprises and other users. DocuX is built for everyone- from individuals to enterprises.

Built for all use cases

Contractbook is only a basic contract workflow. DocuX is all purpose platform for all your documents including contracts management.

Workspace makes you more productive

Automate all the noise that passes for work. Docs/contracts are segregated, prioritized, sorted, and controlled for you. It is your new-age Virtual Assistant.

Get single source of truth

Say goodbye to docs/contracts scattered across versions, devices, tools, and users. With DocuX, every doc/contract is a reliable, single source of truth.

Ditch the back-and-forth

Move all collaboration and reviews out of mailbox and scattered tools onto the doc. With DocuX, 100% of the internal and external collaboration happens on-the-doc.
