Does Your Company Use Contract-Lifecycle-Management Software?

Years ago a wrote briefly about contract-lifecycle-management (CLM) software, which is software that allows an organization to keep track of its contracts and key contract information, such as deadlines. See for example this 2007 post. Apttus and Emptoris are just two examples of CLM software.

But I’ve never had any direct experience with CLM software, and I’ve had only brief conversations with companies about how they use CLM software. I’d be interested to hear from people at companies who use or have used CLM software, successfully or unsuccessfully. In particular, I’d like to hear from people who have used it not only to track contracts but also to create contracts.
