    PRINCETON, NJ (CobbleStone Software – a recognized Leader in contract lifecycle management (CLM) according to the SPARK Matrix™ 2022 report – has released a comprehensive guide detailing the different stages of the contract lifecycle and how they help pave the way for efficient contracting.

    Contracts are legally binding and leave a lot of room for error. As such, it is important to make sure that they are executed properly.

    The contract “lifecycle” is an archetype used to compartmentalize and understand a contract’s complex evolution. The lifecycle begins with requests and ends with the possibility of renewal. The 8 stages are as follows:

    • Contract Requests
    • Contract Authoring
    • Contract Negotiations
    • Contract Approvals
    • Contract Signatures
    • Contract Obligations
    • Contract Compliance
    • Contract Renewals

    Centralizing all 8 stages efficiently makes for a cohesive and streamlined contract management process.

    “This immersive guide serves to inform contract professionals how contract management can be compartmentalized in 8 distinct stages for contract success.”
