CobbleStone announces its newest release of our leading contract management software, Version 17.2. Building upon the success of Version 17, we have included new features throughout multiple modules in the system, along with improving overall capabilities and improving usability. Additionally, clients have the option to update select user accounts without compromising the settings of other user systems.
Highlighted below are some of the major new features rolled out in this release:
Module: Contract Management Software
Workflow Manager – Workflow Visualizer
This new feature provides a quick visual view of the components of a specific workflow which could include the conditions, tasks, and each task's action. Workflows can be complex, but with the Workflow Visualizer, users can quickly access a snapshot of the high priority items that exist within the workflow without slowing down.
SMS/MMS Text Messaging Integration
Always stay connected to what’s happening with your contracts. You may not always get the chance to access your email, but with SMS integration, clients can set up and receive the same alerts as they're used to. Set up is easy and begins with making an account with Twilio, a leader in SMS/MMS messaging services.
Page Level Indexing & OCR Crawler
We’ve expanded upon our existing OCR functionality to enable the system to crawl through all uploaded PDF files. Each text file page will get OCR’d making it that much easier to search text and store all information to the file. This means a decrease in the amount of time it takes for you to filter through the many documents in your system, and pull important information quicker. OCR'd documents no longer require a second step.
Surveys & Questionnaires
Collect the information you need from potential vendors through customizable surveys and questionnaires. This new feature enables a more fluent dialogue among users and respondents through limitless questions and a variety of response types.
Module: E-Sourcing/Procurement Management Software
E-Sourcing Change Notification
Notifications can now reach more potential respondents as well as vendors or customers who match the specified product codes. Quickly assimilate information to multiple groups of people.
Module: Purchase Order Management

• Partial fill of an individual line item
