A Worldwide, Multibillion-Dollar Company Facing Increasing Contract Complexity
CobbleStone Software was approached by one of the leading airplane manufacturers, referred to as Company B (for confidentiality purposes), to help them better manage their contract compliance. The worldwide, multi-billion-dollar company has been managing contracts for decades, but their size, number of contracts, and contract complexity called for a modern contract management software solution.

By 2021, companies are estimated to be spending $12.7 billion on these solutions, leaving those relying on traditional methods to plummet. By investing in BPA, your business can begin focusing on the research, strategy, and development that will position your business as a leader in any industry.
