Pros: Clause library and contract management functionalities.

Cons: Nothing

Overall: Contract management gives clause library functionality which is very useful for saving all types of standard clauses. This can be dragged easily while authoring new contract. Also easily identify the changes made by other party, as it is integrated with MS word. Easy to track changes and saving your all types of contract at one place by defining folder structure. Best ERP to use.

Recommendations to other buyers: Always best if you integrate with existing ERP to automate your procurement process.

Ariba is a very good CLMS. It reduces time and effort. Its a user friendly system.

Pros: It is very customizable, allowing us to determine the fields we need filled out for every contract request, the process and point persons for approving every request and the contract drafting workflow process tailored to our needs. After customizing it, it is a very complete and useful work tool for requesting an drafting contracts.

Cons: It is not very user friendly. As a lawyer, it is the tool I use on a daily basis for the drafting and execution of contracts, but the business areas that request the contracts (which use it only for requesting the contracts they need) have a very hard time learning their way around the tool.

Overall: It is a very comprehensive and useful tool for controlling the requests of contracts by business users (Directors control), it allows for the distribution of the contract drafting workload among the legal department, it also allows to draft, negotiated, execute and backup agreements, following a process that involves the user, the other party and the lawyer. I highly recommend it.

Pros: Ariba is great in the sense that it combines so many features in the same spot - purchasing, vendor maintenance needs, accounts payable, travel and time sheets. Quick links are super convenient and it keeps great history of everything you did. Search function is very detailed as well.

Cons: Ariba is slow at times and it logs you out in the middle of something. And even though it saves what you were doing, it's annoying that you have to log in again.

It is been a delightfully working with Ariba application because of it's functionality.

Pros: I really like the way it has been designed to handle all contract documents and managing the different stages of the negotiations and contract approval process.

Cons: Searching something in Ariba is really difficult and painful. It is difficult to learn as to how to navigate through all its features to accomplish what you want to do. Its not very apparent.

Overall: It has helped me to grow in my job which involves a lot of contract management. It helps me search for old contract info and dig up information which otherwise isnt very easily available.

Has everything but you might need to be an expert to use it

Pros: It has a ton of auditing and reporting features but pretty unintuitive to use. I wouldn't recommend this again

Cons: I think it needs to be more intuitive and take a page out of design from mobile web pages or apps. A lot of the options are hidden and take too many clicks to get to.

Pros: It's cloud based system and end to end solution for contracts. Drafting and negotiation is never easy without using this software. Automated signatures makes it more easy to sign the contracts electronically. Linking SOW & Amendment with MSA is easy and assigning the contracts in bulk to facilitator is also very easy.

Overall: It helps us to create contracts with end to end process. Also simplify the process and helps to manage contracts easily.

Pros: As a supplier of professional services, Ariba Contract Management helps keeps our bidding organized and we use it to track orders, invoices and payments on jobs. It is also easy to use from a supplier perspective in that you can generate supplier registration questionnaires electronically, instead of having suppliers submit responses to questionnaires, RFPs, or statements of qualifications via paper.

Cons: If you want to retain or access your documents through the software, you need to pay an extra fee to do so. If you don't pay the fee, then after 18 months your documents are automatically deleted.
