HOW DO YOU USE SHAKE?
As a design firm, we are expanding our network of contacts and work with various vendors in our area. In today’s world, everything is expected to go at a high speed, and Shake allows us to meet with clients and create their contracts in the blink of an eye. The best part is that our clients are always super impressed at how fast we move compared to other vendors in the area. Saying that Shake is a godsend would be an understatement, as it gives us competitive edge.
HOW DID YOU PREVIOUSLY CREATE CONTRACTS?
Before Shake, we would struggle to search the internet and find contracts that other individuals have created with or without any legal knowledge. For us, it seemed like we were playing a tricky game of Jenga, taking and putting pieces together that we didn’t need.
WHAT KIND OF IMPACT HAS SHAKE HAD ON YOUR PRODUCTIVITY?
Productivity increased tremendously with Shake. Our designers are able to meet with the clients and have a contract on their phone ready for signing thereby eliminating the everlasting pain of trying to write contracts from beginning to end.
WHAT ARE THE ELEMENTS YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT SHAKE?
Our favorite elements of Shake are its usability and design. Shake is extremely user friendly, and very easy on the eyes. An added bonus is the fact that Shake works in a logical pattern that is makes it simple for those who aren’t familiar with contract writing.
TO WHOM WOULD YOU RECOMMEND SHAKE?
We would recommend Shake to individuals who are looking to increase productivity in the creative world. As left brain thinkers, we tend to forget about the more traditional ways of doing things. Shake helps us tie both of those elements together.
