Contract Insight is a contract lifecycle management solution developed by CobbleStone Systems. It can be deployed either on the customer’s premises (with perpetual licensing) or in the cloud (with monthly subscription licensing).
Contract Insight also offers standard named user licensing or concurrent user licensing for larger organizations. There are three editions of the solution with different pricing tiers and levels of functionality.
Contract Insight offers core contract management functionality, such as a centralized contract database with role-based access to documents and actions, a contract workflow approval engine, e-signature, budget tracking, audit tracking and contact management for vendors and/or customers.
The system can also track regulatory compliance and identify legal conflicts of interest. Templates are available for authoring contracts, and users can negotiate contracts with vendors and customers online.
Contract Insight provides unlimited email and calendar alerts based on user-configured rules. Additionally, users can define an unlimited number of custom fields, including contract types, tracking fields and workflow processes.

Its the biggest cost saver for any procurement department and contract management!
Contract Insight is flexible in design and definitely meets the indivudal needs of our company. As a contract management tool it is scalable, as the software is flexibile. Its functionality is easy to use for both supplier and client.
Perhaps some new users need extra support until they are fluent using it, however the aftercare support is great.

The software itself is half the appeal, and the other half is the customer service. Our rep, goes above and beyond. The level of attention and responsiveness is to such a degree that we feel we're their only customer - we truly appreciate it.
We have the Express version. Fully customizable, down to the contract entry fields/formatting. Ad hoc reports. An abundance of features and ways to organize documents. I highly recommend the 1-month free trial to really get a sense of whether the system will suit your needs.
Opens a new tab with almost every selection; I end up with several opened tabs after just 10-15 minutes of activity. Need to manually delete items one by one; no group-delete functionality (i.e. the pre-populated "Contract Categories" list).

This has been a great experience learning the system and working with the Cobblestone staff. We are adding modules as we discover additional ways to organize a very large agency's needs in this area.
This software is excellent tool for our organization. It has provided a organized method to keep all the contract and contracting actions in one software providing us the opportunity to have an organized structure. The staff are awesome and always ready to help.
Nothing that I have found yet. I have worked with Cobblestone for about 8 months and it is able to do anything I have ask for so far.

I have worked with many software companies and Contract Insight have invested almost as mush as we have with ideas and modifications. A true partner.
Easy to customize each user experience, but still robust enough to deal with complexity of a state agency. User can easily export data without System Administration help.
Nothing at this time do I like least of the CLM system

Time saved and better tracking of our contracts with our clientele.
Easy to use with a short learning curve. Customer support was very helpful in guiding us through the initial install. Questions were followed up quickly from their support staff.
The only downside I can see was there wasn't a mobile app but they have listened to our feedback and added this within the past few months. The initial experience with it has been positive.
Marie from Self
Great program with a lot of possible customization. It is also fairly simple to learn how to navigate.
Takes some time to learn how to use it, but once you do it is very simple and customizable. Would highly recommend.

All IT Contracts are stored in one central place
Ever since Cobblestone has been rolled out at my company, IT now has visibility of its contract inventory. Contract owners receive the automated email alerts informing them of their contract expiration's which has prompted action on their behalf and are able to avoid lapse in support, or reinstatement penalties. I am able to distribute 90 day rolling contracts to all CIO's to make them aware of their respective areas. Emailing contracts from the systems to the contract owners makes it extremely convenient. The ability to customize the fields of a contract record, ease of adding contracts, vendors, employees has been very simple. As the administrator of the system, I have alot of flexibility to modify the configurations without assistance from Cobblestone. There are very helpful tutorials in case I require additional assistance. The Cobblestone staff is extremely efficient and friendly. The Help Desk portal to place tickets for technical assistance is great! You receive assistance immediately. Matt Hughes my account rep has been fantastic! Very helpful and always available. The ability to add an unlimited amount of attachments to a contract record and Ad Hoc reporting mechanism has been very beneficial. The ability to report on all the metadata is quick and simple when I have been tasked with providing contractual data. I would highly recommend Contract Insight as a contract management tool.
Everything is out of the box. For special configuration needs to be customized which is not a problem. The hourly rates are affordable for custom configuration.
Alec from The Bernstein Companies

We are more efficient (everything lives in one space) and we have been able to leverage cost savings by renegotiating contracts for the same services at different properties.
Cobblestone is a fantastic system. From its ease of use when adding a contract (couple step process) to uploading the contract, it has allowed our organization to streamline our contract management process. Notes/key contacts/status are all kept updated in one place. Renewals/upcoming contract expiration's are never missed, as auto-reminders are sent from the software. The system has made our company more efficient as well as has allowed us to realize true cost savings (properties may have been on different vendor agreements for the same service, which have now been streamlined).
Cobblestone is a ready to go system. While there is some customization, there are a lot of options/fields. Not all options/fields are required, however, since they are presented to the user, some users feel they have to fill out all fields. As a result, this may make adding each contract very timely. However, this is also a benefit, as filling out all fields make every entry as detailed as possible.
Shanon from Medicines360
I like the fact that you can customize just about everything yourself within the program so you rarely need assistance with configuration once it's all set up.
How users can only be assigned to one department at a time and solely individual contracts can be assigned to people.

We now have the capability of being reminded when contract are going to
User friendly and powerful. I'm glad we chose this software. The implementation was easy, and they imported all our contracts from excel into the database. We now have total control over our contracts at our fingertips. I would definitely recommend Contract Insight to my peers.
Kelly from Magellan Health, Inc
We have used Cobblestone contract management system for almost 3 years now to help us manage our vendor contracts. It has been a huge success in keeping track of our pending contracts as well as active and expiring contracts. We use to track down expiration dates, renewals and other reminders for any contracts. The system is extremely user friendly with training new employees, keeps excellent data of important data for our contracts as well as upcoming reminders that will need to be sent out. We have many features that have helped us manage our contracts by personalizing them by our managers so they can easily use the system and reports. Any questions/concerns/issues have been promptly answered by our rep and the customer service team.
Very user friendly, easy to move through the system to use and very useful for managing our many contracts.
There are a couple of things we wish we can personalize for our company but the IT team is looking into it for us.
Sue from Chiesi USA, Inc.
You cannot do better than this product for economy, user friendliness, flexibility and customer service!
Mishal from Lincoln Child Center
The software is easy to use. I was able to begin using the system even before my first official training due to their on-line training videos. The customer service is wonderful and I received excellent live training from my instructor Richard. Brad has also been available from the very beginning of our business relationship. I inherited the contracts management for my company. I refused to manage contracts using tons of spreadsheets. Now I don't have too. I am very pleased with this system.
Nancy from Vertical Screen, Inc.
Vertical Screen, Inc. has used CobbleStone's Contract Insight as our contract management system for over four years. The implementation was quick and seamless. The system is easy to use and has been easy to customize for our needs. The email notifications and reporting are extremely useful.
Whenever a new need arises, Brad Jones and the tech support at Cobblestone are very responsive and helpful.
I highly recommend Cobblestone's Contract Insight. It is an outstanding product and it has been an absolute pleasure to work with everyone at Cobblestone.
Christian from Health Republic Insurance of New York
I just wanted to thank Brad Jones and the team at CobbleStone Systems for all of their continued help/support. Whenever I have administrative questions, they have always been very helpful. I find the tool easy to use, as I would guess most users here would agree.
Thanks again Brad!
Kelly from Smithfield Foods, Inc.
We have had an amazing experience with the Cobblestone program and system administrators. Cobblestone is a very user friendly program to introduce to your employees, very customizable to your workflow and daily operations.
The tech support and administrative team are very helpful, friendly and responsive to your needs.
We are very pleased with the cost effective product and hope to be a long time customer.
Caroline from James Madison University
Cobblestone serves our contract database needs at James Madison University in a very user friendly platform. We have made easy customizations to better fit our particular needs and methods. The team at Cobblestone has been a pleasure to work with over the years. They are very responsive to any concerns or questions we have and always follow up to ensure satisfaction.
Albert from Radford University
Contract insight has allowed us to consolidate all of our contract records and give us the ability for contract officers and contract administrators to view their contracts without having to go find a physical file or contract notebook.
The system provides e-mail notifications for upcoming tasks or contract expirations and virtually eliminates things dropping through the cracks or getting lost in the shuffle.
The staff at Cobblestone are knowledgeable and make the implementation as painless as humanly possible. After implementation they are only a phone call or e-mail away and are more than willing to assist with any questions or problems that may come up.
Without a doubt I give them my highest recommendation.
We reviewed other contract management software for months before selecting CobbleStone. We mad the right choice. Their software is flexible to meet our specific needs.
Easy to set up fields, contract types, reports and workflow approvals.
Haven't found one yet, but I will update this review if something comes up.
Steph from Penn State University
CobbleStone contract management software has met all of our needs. Initially, we used the software as a repository for contracts with email alerts for expirations/renewals, but the system has evolved to manage the full lifecycle with approvals, workflow, spend tracking and compliance reports. It was so easy to set up and administer. After quite a bit of research, we know that we made the correct choice by selecting CobbleStone.
Ruth from Montage Financial Group, Inc.
Our insurance business required a software that would not only generate contracts, but help us manage our cases, store related supportive documents and report on the many data elements we were trying to capture. So far, I am very pleased with the ability and function of the software. Although robust, the software is very easy to learn. I had a lot of data and many state specific templates and specialty forms to transfer into the software and the team was very helpful and patient in helping me to accomplish my goals. They are willing to set up quick meetings to get stuff done and swiftly call me back when I have a product question. For the product and service level, I felt the price was very competitive. I would purchase again.
