"Apptus Contract Management Review"

What do you like best?

Out of the box templates for different functionalities such as initial agreement, change order, proposals and other supporting documents covering various clauses is such an outstanding feature.The ability to configure the package according to our requirements by using doc assembly rule sets is good as well; It is a mature product in the CPQ space and scalable for any required integrations as well

What do you dislike?

The license cost is at a premium but considering the wide variety of features available, it might be justified to a certain extent. There are a few navigational improvements that can be done to improve the overall user experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to streamline the contract approval process with the relevant stakeholders first before configuring it in the package to avoid issues later

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Apptus CLM package addresses the gap where the sales reps have to follow a manual process to close the deals and there could be deals at a critical phase and it helps both the Sales and Legal team to collaborate seamlessly. Helps to adhere to all the amendments that the company could be bringing into practice

"Apttus CLM Successful Outcomes"

What do you like best?

The product is extremely mature and well constructed. The fact that Apttus has the most robust total Quote-to-Cash offering ranging from Configure-Price-Quote (CPQ) to Contract Lifecycle Management (CLM), Incentive Compensation Management (ICM) and Revenue Recognition capabilities, makes their Contract Management capability that much more scalable into an even bigger, more valuable business solution.

I also had a phenomenal experience with their Professional Services team that embedded with our team, got to know our business, challenges, processes and desired outcomes and worked tirelessly to deliver a winning solution. As a result, we transformed our contract management operation from a highly disconnected, manual and e-mail driven approach to a completely automated process within the Salesforce ecosystem. We were able to leverage pre-approved legal language to more easily construct our contracts. Approvals were automatically generated, disseminated, escalated and captured within the system. Contracts were easily e-signed by customers and countersigned by our legal team with a single click. Ultimately all contract language including terms, conditions and even specific clauses were stored as searchable data.

What do you dislike?

There is little to dislike about the Apttus CLM product or in their ability to deliver a winning solution. As with many Salesforce applications, use of the interface could sometimes be more efficient with less whitespace and fewer page turns. But this is a minor consideration given the awesome results and great success we have experienced with this Apttus solution.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider Apttus very highly for three reasons:

1. Their broader Quote-to-Cash vision and scalability

2. Their exceptional Professional Services

3. The strength of their organization and their dominant standing in the marketplace

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a result of our Apttus CLM implementation, we reduced our manual process by 40% of the redundant or unnecessary process steps. We reduced our contract processing costs by 25%. And we experienced a 60% increase in the speed at which contracts were signed. So, we were able to reduce the lag between close of an opportunity and the point at which we were able to start recognizing revenue.

Sales Reps love it. Legal relies on it. And the Operations team can't live without it. In 25 years, this was one of the smoothest, most successful projects I have had the pleasure of overseeing.

"Excellent CLM for use in an integrated Quote to Cash system"

What do you like best?

We use Apttus CLM in combination with their CPQ product, and then integrate to our back-end systems and ERP. I find the Apttus CLM to be well-designed out of the box, and it was relatively easy to configure during our deployment. Our Legal and Contracts team also benefit from the X-Author functionality that allows us to use our Office suite to manipulate and edit documents seamlessly within the CLM.

What do you dislike?

We have a very complex agreement structure, with a lot of variable clauses, use-dependent templates, etc. Configuring Apttus CLM to handle that complexity took a lot of effort. Also, the presentment limitations for line items in the quote/agreement record could be more dynamic.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Apttus CLM to unify our previous patchwork of contracting systems and processes. Doing so allowed us to present a single, coherent contract to our customers. We no longer have to manually enter in customer, opportunity or approval information into our contracts, resulting in time savings and tighter revenue assurance controls. Making changes to our templates is swift and efficient. The changes we have made to our customer contracts, both individually and globally, is now highly reportable.

"Robust Suite of Contract Management Features"

What do you like best?

Overall I do enjoy how the Apttus CLM tool can handle countless variations of contract use cases. Using the XAuthor technology makes it easy to tie variables from Salesforce and inject clauses, addendums, and terms dynamically into an already familiar word template. The fact that the tool was built on the Salesforce.com platform makes it very familiar to a SysAdmin/Dev to enhance to tool further with simple configuration or more complex development.

What do you dislike?

Generating documents seems to take an eternity at 5 seconds, which is rough in today's I want it now digital world. But, the output results make up for the snooze fest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get your business process down and document it. Understand your Approval process flows. Run this through your business owners multiple times and finalise every aspect required to answer your KPI reporting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Contract Visibility. Ease of Access. Verizon Control. Scalability.

"Using CLM has been very impressive and awesome"

What do you like best?

what I like best with CLM: CLM not doubt has made the contract process at my Hospital much more smoother, faster cleaner than what it used to be. Our approval process has been modified using CLM workflows, process builder and Approval process. I was impressed when I saw the MAX demo for CPQ and I look forward to having such functionality in CLM because that would be very cool awesome for my Hospital legal department and other users.

What do you dislike?

In my organization our Approval flow is very complicated and I think we are still looking for a way to streamline the process without changing too much on our traditional workflow

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Contract request process, workflows and approvals
