DocuX vs Spotdraft

You need more than a contract
workflow to #getworkdone

DocuX

A purpose-built platform to create, collaborate, control,
eSign, and manage all your docs/contracts in one place.

Spotdraft

Internal contract workflow solution for legal teams-
not for all docs/contracts and not for all teams.

Create

Full feature online document editor for drafting,
editing and formatting of all your docs/contracts.

MS Word / Google Docs
like online editor

Limited feature online editor.
Relies on MS Word plug-in for contract creations.

Collaborate

Complete collaboration suite. Purpose built,
Real-time, contextual and 100% on-doc.

On-doc comments, suggestions,
chat, attachments, etc.

Only internal collaboration. Its a workflow tool with non-live,
non-concurrent document access to external parties.

Controls

Control view, download, edit, forward, etc. rights.
Unprecedented, total platform control with you.

Docs and platform controls
for secure sharing

No document controls as contracts are shared
via email with third party. Decent platform controls.

Approvals

No-code, user configurable
workflows for internal approvals.

Internal approval
workflows

Fixed, pre-defined workflows for each type of contracts.
Modification requires change management via Spotdraft Support.

eSign

Easy to use, lightening fast, and legally
binding eSign. Unlimited and FREE.

Legally binding native
electronic signature

Complex, legally binding eSign
with reasonable feature sets.

Workspace

AI powered, purpose-built workspace
that manages half of your work.

AI powered
docs/contracts repository

Basic contracts listing with search.

Security

Top of the class, bank grade security with
data encryption at rest and in transit.

Platform, document, data
security and certification

Weak document security (contracts are shared via email)
and confidentiality. Decent platform security.

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!

The editor is a little tricky sometimes. Making edits or changes to the contract can edit up being a huge task - as it messes up the alignment of the content. Apart from that, everything else is pretty good.

Spotdraft TAT for setting up a new template is slightly disappointing as it may take 4 - 5 business days which is not great if you have only one contract management tool to rely on!

Admin functionality is pretty native and it's difficult to manage counterparties and their details. The ability to create manage and create templates would be a huge plus to the platform which is missing currently.

Templatization and process mapping were a little challenging. Solutions were effort and time-intensive for both of the parties involved. A self-serve platform where we can customize the templates and fields would be very helpful.

Sometimes editing contracts, is full of bugs and lags, over the editor tool

T

I do not like the fact that it is not integrated with google. A lot of things would be resolved if all the agreements can be tracked in one particular trail and the tracking of it becomes difficult on different mail trails

E

Too many bugs. Even after automation and thorough checks, there might be product bugs that can take time to resolve.
