Improve productivity with contract authoring tools

Both Coupa software and PandaDoc help create contracts in one click from templates so you can reduce the manual process of contracts. Avoid errors with data pre-populated from contact directories and deal details. PandaDoc offers unlimited custom templates, a content (clause) library, and content-locking capabilities to manage the contract authoring process and prevent unauthorized edits.

Speed up negotiations with contract collaboration

Both Coupa software and PandaDoc shorten internal and external reviews of proposed contracts but only with PandaDoc can you redline or comment on documents to move negotiations forward without endless email threads. The Coupa spend management platform contract collaboration module is only available as an add-on, costing you more.

Keep contracts organized with a single integrated repository

Save time and money with easy contract retrieval. You can keep track of every contract in a single digital repository and even give users controlled access. PandaDoc takes it one step further by giving you unlimited storage and allowing admins to control access at the user and workspace levels.

Reduce risk with automated approval workflows

Ensure your contracts are reviewed by the appropriate internal stakeholders with smart approval routing. PandaDoc condition-based approvals allow legal and executive teams to review contracts to set pricing or approve discounts before they are sent to clients and customers.

Reduce frictions with seamless integrations

Integrate contract management tools with other solutions like your CRM, expense management, supplier management, business spend management, and spend analysis tools to improve contract processes. Sales leaders and sales operations will love the fact that customer and deal data can flow seamlessly from your CRM to your contracts for fast contract creation. PandaDoc integrates with the most popular CRMs and provides this functionality out-of-the-box.

Why you should switch from Coupa to PandaDoc

Fast to start

Start with a PandaDoc free trial and take our software for a test drive. Coupa software is expensive and designed for large enterprise clients. It often takes months and costly professional services to deploy and customize the solution to your contract workflow. PandaDoc customers start seeing value on day one and don’t have to spend a lot to see a huge return.

Built-in eSignatures with every plan

The Coupa software contract management module is a paid add-on in addition to the enterprise Spend Management subscription which isn’t great for an SMB’s budget. You’ll also need to buy a separate subscription from DocuSign to enable eSignature functionality. Every PandaDoc subscription includes legally-binding eSignatures at no extra cost.


Cost effective for small and medium businesses

Coupa Contract Management from Coupa software Inc. is only available as a part of a more expensive enterprise solution. Some functionality, like contract collaboration, will cost more. Get every essential feature for contract generation, approval workflows, eSignatures, and contract management with any PandaDoc subscription.
