By automating and connecting your contract processes, DocuSign can reduce transit times, reduce costs and improve your customer experience. “We originally used Salesforce in a minimal way for email marketing automation, and they convinced us to update on Pardot, their marketing platform. Naively, we signed a three-year contract on Pardot for a package of about $12,000 a year. The problem is that we also had to sign up for additional user agreements. And that`s where they really get you in the whole process, because now you`re stuck in those seats. Our business is a bit seasonal, so we need five or ten extra users during the summer months, but doesn`t need much in the other months. In other words, if you get stuck in a deal and you find out you need fewer features or users than you were originally sold, you`ll still pay for it.
