“I was glad that Contract Hound is on Amazon’s Cloud Server as it is secure and safe for our uses...”

The contact management system we wanted needed to be safe and secure. I was glad that Contract Hound is on Amazon’s Cloud Server as it is secure and safe for our uses.

Contract Hound saves us at least 10 hours per month, on average, and 20 hours in the audit month. I value that time at $100-$200 per hour with the people who work on contracts. So Contract Hound to us is worth in the thousands per month.

If Contract Hound didn’t exist, I’d be very disappointed to have to start over again with something that may not be the right fit.
