Sales and legal need a contract solution that doesn't hold up deals

Legacy contract management tools are stuck with code-based workflows, bugs, and failed implementations. With Conga:

  • The tool is sold as separate products that solve pieces of the contract lifecycle and stall collaboration
  • Sales and legal want to move fast, but outdated contract management systems can’t keep up

Ironclad: the Conga Alternative

Sign contracts without bottlenecks

Create workflows and launch new contracts in minutes

Revenue Operations and Legal teams use the drag-and-drop Workflow Designer to create contract generation and approval processes in minutes. With new workflows in place, business teams can easily deploy new contracts from anywhere, including Salesforce.

"The user interface and UX design are top-notch. It has made the user adoption journey as easy as possible which has made all the difference in identifying immediate impact on the business."

Frequently Asked Questions

I am currently with Conga, is it difficult to switch to Ironclad?

Absolutely not. Ironclad strives to deliver a smooth customer experience and assists your business with Legal Engineers during the migration and onboarding process.

  • Easily migrate your Conga contracts using Smart Import, one of the automation tools powered by Ironclad AI that enables you to upload up to 2,000 historical documents at a time into a single repository.
  • Get 1-1 sessions with legal experts to set up and customize your contract lifecycle management system, and build your first workflow.
  • Get free access to the Ironclad Academy, a platform with helpful learning and training resources for you to get started and automate your contracting process.
Do I need to buy other software along with Ironclad?

No, Ironclad has all the tools your business needs in one single software. You only have to purchase one license and it will unlock the features you need for each stage of your contract processes, from document creation to electronic signatures and clickwrap.

Conga, on the contrary, offers multiple products that you have to buy separately (like Conga Composer, Contracts, and Collaborate), making the buying process confusing and costly.

How long does implementation take with Ironclad?

It usually takes companies just a few days to implement Ironclad, depending on the complexity of their legal operation. We know that CLM implementations can be difficult. That’s why we provide in-house assistance from day 1 to understand your business critical needs, and help you extract maximum value from our service. 

Unlike other alternatives in the market, Ironclad has a no-code, flexible tool that facilitates document generation and approval processes in minutes (instead of months), without any technical guidance.

Does Ironclad integrate with Salesforce?

Yes. Ironclad does support a Salesforce integration, which is AppExchange approved. With this integration, sales users have the ability to automate contract creation and launch a legal-approved contract in seconds.

Is there a free trial for Ironclad?

Yes, you can request a 30-day free trial. Get in touch and see for yourself if Ironclad is the best solution for your company.
