Paperless.io is a European alternative to Ironclad, used by HR, Operations & Legal teams who love security and ease of use. How does it compare?
No credit card required
IronClad is great for in-house lawyers, but users in HR, operations & sales will find it hard to use. It takes too long and isn't efficient. However, if you want an easy-to-use European Ironclad alternative with a flat learning curve, Paperless is the way to go.
IronClad is the first choice for lawyers in companies with complex needs. New users in IronClad have a hard time figuring out how the platform works. If you need self-service document automation and eSignature, Paperless can get you up and running quickly.
Paperless is made and hosted in Germany and fully DSGVO and eIDAS compliant. Protecting your data, information and documents is a top priority for us, and we consider this for every strategic and operational decision we take.

Ironclad doesn't mention its pricing on its website. They don't have a free trial or a free plan. Nevertheless, Ironclad's customers include MasterCard, Intercom, and L'Oreal. Paperless.io, by comparison, has unlimited documents and templates for €24 a month. It’s best suited for small to medium-sized businesses. The pricing is transparent, and you can cancel at any time.
Ironclad makes it hard to change documents and templates. The template has to be downloaded, edited in Word, and then uploaded again, making it unnecessarily complex. Paperless.io makes it easy to create and edit documents with web-based templates.
With Paperless, you get the same level of support you’d expect from enterprise solutions like DocuSign. Further, you can call us or chat with us via our website - whether you're using Paperless for the first time or hundredth time.
