PandaDoc was made for sales teams to send proposals

And they’re great at that! But if you’re using PandaDoc outside sales proposals and electronic signature, you’ll struggle with:

  • Manually updating templates that still require legal approval, creating bottlenecks.
  • Collaborating and negotiating on documents with different teams and counterparties.
  • Getting insights into your contract data and identifying which ones are at risk.

Speed up contract reviews up to 60% with AI

Ironclad’s AI extracts contract data automatically and jumps to the parts you care about, instead of reviewing everything line-by-line. Highlight risk areas and see suggestions to replace non-standard clauses.

"If we didn’t have Ironclad, could we extend a day to have 48 hours instead of 24 hours? Because that might be what we’d need. It would’ve been difficult without tools like Ironclad."

Frequently Asked Questions

What implementation support does Ironclad offer?

Implementation always depends on the complexity of your legal operation. You have the option to fully migrate your contracts onto Ironclad, with help from our Legal Engineers.

Learn more about our implementation services.

Is Ironclad easy to learn for new users?

It’s easy to get started with Ironclad, for both legal and business users. Most of our clients manage to adopt Ironclad on their own in a matter of days.

Legal can set up powerful workflows that match your business processes, using Ironclad’s drag-and-drop workflow designer. Your sales team and other business users can launch new documents in minutes from these legal-approved workflows.

If you have questions at any point, you can also get in touch with our support team or get help from the Ironclad Academy or community.

Can my sales team work with Ironclad on their own?

Yes! Ironclad was built by legal pros but it’s for everyone. Whether you work in legal, sales, marketing, or any other department. Anyone can create, review, and collaborate on contracts with ease. Your sales reps can even launch contracts from within Salesforce without having to open Ironclad.

Does Ironclad come with templates?

Templates come with limited logic and you have to edit them manually. This is hard to scale because you end up doing all the edits one-by-one. With Ironclad, you can create infinite contract variations using a visual workflow designer. Legal sets up the conditions (e.g. “if country is X, remove Y clause”) and instead of using templates, Ironclad builds the right contract for you, automatically. This method is much more time-efficient and easier to scale than templates.

Is Ironclad a secure platform to store my contracts?

Absolutely. Security is critical for Ironclad while your documents are being created, edited, stored, and processed.

Enhance document security with encryption and cloud-based deployment. Encryption of all data in transit (using TLS 1.2 or higher) and at rest (through AES-256). Cloud-based deployment. Ironclad uses the US-hosted Google Cloud Platform for production servers and operates in multiple zones to create robustness against outages.

Is there a free trial for Ironclad?

Yes, you can request a 14-day free trial. Get in touch and see for yourself if Ironclad is the best solution for your company.
