This past year was particularly special, given the fact that more companies chose to implement the award-winning platform in 2019 than in any previous year. But what puts Contract Insight leagues above the rest? Read on to learn about some of the features that make CobbleStone the leader in contract management, procurement, and eSourcing software for a variety of industries!
#1 AI-Based Contract Creation
Contract record initiation and creation are vitally important aspects of contract management. Organizations of a variety of industries and sizes benefit significantly from a contract creation process that sets the stage for a streamlined contract lifecycle. AI-integration makes this easy.
Contract Insight’s VISDOM® AI allows users to leverage simple drag and drop record importation for file types such as MS Word and PDF documents. VISDOM’s data pre-processing engine extracts and fills key pieces of information in an easy-to-digest set of tables. Clauses can be detected and displayed using natural language processing (NLP), and users can easily compare them to clauses in their library.
