I use this daily for the management of my company's corporate contracts, MSA's, SLA's, etc. I am the admin for the system and train end users as well. This module has some good customization fields that help to report functions, but there are many small functionalities not available that should be.
Storage of contracts, notifications for end dates.
Not as simple as it should be for the end user. Should be easier to create a contract using the wizard.

Sci Quest is easy to use. However there are not many contracts to choose from.
User friendly and easy to navigate

It is fairly easy to administer for non-technical staff. It provides very comprehensive information related to the terms of the actual contract and integrates very will into the rules of the SciQuest e-procurement application.
Some of the data was manually tedious to enter. For example, the roles of central staff on each contract was almost identical and that information had to be entered manually with each new contract.
Understand the global needs of your organization, the needs of end users, and needs of staff administering Contract Director.

My company utilizes most of the JAGGAER indirect modules and the Contract Management module isn't the best of them but it is still very good and we have been very happy with the upgrade that JAGGAER brought to our organization.
Easy to navigate. Clear and concise organization of information. Easy to maintain access controls. Very customizable as far as workflow and dashboards are concerned. The workflow is easy to understand and most aspects of it can be modified and configured by our JAGGAER system administrator. Permissions are easily managed. Users can configure their own dashboards with summarized information of their choosing. Document templates can be configured to automatically pull in fields and information from the contract record.
Needs more granular access controls so we can give certain users access to view a contract and its final attachments without the ability to modify them.

Centralized contract management, plenty of information. No more lost time searching for various contract information.
The many search filter features are excellent for narrowing down a search for a particular type of contract. You can pull reports & export reports based on a variety of contract specs which is very helpful as well. I also like the status banners that let you know if a contract is expired or its current status.
Steep learning curve, many fields that seem unnecessary (possibly just for our organization). The most difficult thing is customizing this software. Change integrations are difficult and costly to implement.
