Background Challenges

Lost revenue, limited visibility

As an innovative SaaS company, JourneyApps grew rapidly soon after its founding. However, their clunky contract management was hampering business. Audits took months to complete, and costly billing errors were constant. 

Because employees couldn’t find or access the documents they needed, they missed opportunities to cancel or renegotiate contracts before they expired.

JourneyApps’ CFO Pieter-Francois Theron had had enough.

“Engineers often didn’t have access to the final versions of contracts, which meant they often worked with the wrong scope,” Theron said. “Due diligence was a nightmare because we could not make reliable lists of contracts by type. 

If JourneyApps wanted to continue scaling, they had to fix their contract management.

Choosing ContractSafe

User-friendly interface and contract reviewing

Theron considered numerous solutions, but ContractSafe’s easy-to-use design and contract-reviewing functionality were exactly what he needed. He was optimistic these features would improve collaboration and help institute a systematic approach to contract storage. 

ContractSafe also offered volume-based pricing, which meant JourneyApps could pay based on the number of contracts rather than by the number of users. 

Implementing new software can be tricky, but ContractSafe’s Customer Success team helped JourneyApps systematize how they created unique contract IDs, making storage and retrieval straightforward for everyone.

Uploading documents is a simple process and the search feature is a lifesaver. Everything is organized and easy to find, and the renewal reminders help us keep on top of any upcoming expiring contracts. Their customer support is excellent.
