CobbleStone’s 2019 has encompassed new product advancements, awards, streamlined purchasing and implementation options, training opportunities, global expansion, and credible thought leadership. Take a moment to celebrate where we’ve been and to look forward to 2020 and beyond with your trusted leader in contract management software.
This year has been monumental for CobbleStone. We’ve fully settled into our new east coast location.

An Efficient Contract Software Purchase Process
CobbleStone Software continued our partnership with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA). GSA makes it easy for government agencies to use a schedule to purchase contract management software without the need for negotiations or contracts, increasing value.
Many agencies and government organizations can improve pre-award to post-award contract management with our comprehensive contract lifecycle management platform that includes key date notifications and budget alerts, compliance monitoring, DBE tracking, Dun & Bradstreet integration, FOIA inquiries, intelligent workflows, contracting transparency, and more.

CobbleStone Awarded Again
In 2018, Capterra recognized CobbleStone as one of the top twenty most popular contract management software providers. In 2019, CobbleStone was recognized again, being ranked by Capterra as a top 5 contract management software - with Contract Insight awarded an overall perfect rating due to our easy-to-use system and superior customer service.
Since 1995, thousands of legal, contract, procurement, risk, and compliance leaders have entrusted CobbleStone with their contract, vendor, sourcing, and procurement management needs.
CobbleStone Software Expands Footprint
We began 2019 in a brand-new east coast office that continues to attract loyal employees with contract management expertise and a never-ending commitment to client service excellence. Later this year, we augmented our footprint and opened a new international office in Melbourne, Australia, to meet global demand for Contract Insight.
We look forward to serving our clients down under and for new opportunities in 2020 to serve our international user base in leading markets.
Contract Management Conferences & Training

CobbleStone User Conference
In 2018 we hosted our user conference in Philadelphia with great success. We took some time in 2019 to survey our users to identify the most crucial contract management topics that we should cover in 2020. The consensus was intelligent workflows and approvals, searching and reporting, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and contract authoring with templates and clauses. Stay tuned for details on CobbleStone’s 2020 user conference coming to Austin, Texas!
CobbleStone at ACC's Annual Meeting
In late October, we exhibited and presented in Phoenix at ACC’s Annual Meeting - “the world’s largest gathering of in-house counsel.” CobbleStone session attendees learned how to connect legal processes with technology that automates data review and mitigation, streamlines legal document assembly with templates and clauses, centralizes contract storage, tracking, reporting, and more!
Invest in Human Resources for Contract Management ROI
Contract management conferences and training events present an excellent opportunity for beginners to benefit from learning and networking with advanced contract management and procurement professionals. Seasoned contract administrators benefit from learning about new contract management software features and get tips on how to incorporate them into their current contract process.
CobbleStone offers remote and on-site training opportunities. While training isn’t necessary to use Contract Insight, our experts can help organizations follow contract management best practices, increase efficiency, reduce time spent on contract administration and technical questions, and more!
