All contract management software is designed to streamline the contracting process while reducing costs, but a good CMS is not one-size-fits-all. Certain CMS features, such as a digitized repository or automated tracking and alerts, are useful virtually across all industries, while other bells and whistles may not be worth what they cost (or even necessary at all).Read More
Top concerns for today’s business leaders continue to include the storage, management, and safety of data. That’s not surprising, given that every time we pick up a newspaper (o.k., every time we open an electronic device and click on a news story), there seems to be a headline about hackers, ransomware, or another data breach. Heck, even the government is not immune, with investigations into election interference resulting in federal indictments against Russian nationals.Read More
Technological innovation seems to be making everything smarter these days. From smartphones to talking speakers, one can’t help but sometimes wonder what the future holds. Perhaps even more amazing is the mind-boggling pace at which things are changing.Read More

The Information Technology industry has enjoyed explosive growth for a number of years. According to research cited by CompTIA, the IT industry exceeded $4.5 trillion globally in 2017 and will exceed $4.8 trillion in 2018. Yearly growth of 5 percent is expected, but could be as high as 7 percent. The United States accounts for 31 percent of this total, representing the world’s largest technology market, in which the majority of tech spending occurs at the governmental and corporate level.Read More
Formal education is something to which all Americans are exposed from a very young age. Yet the enormity of the industry is often overlooked. Traditionally, we think of education in terms of mandatory elementary and secondary education, whether public or private, followed by optional public or private education at the college or university level. Some students choose optional vocational paths. All of this learning occurred at specific physical locations to which we were physically transported.
It’s an unfortunate fact that we can have regrettable periods of boredom in both our business and personal lives. Perhaps this is due, at least in part, to the fact that in the grand scheme of things, relatively few people ever know the real pleasures associated with finding the perfect contract management software. In fact, according to an unscientific ContractSafe survey (conducted with employees in our offices), those who incorporate the best contract management software into their daily routines are happier, sleep better, and often appear more attractive to others!Read More
Woodrow Wilson once said, “If you want to make enemies, try to change something.” While we don’t want you making enemies, we all know that without change, there cannot be meaningful growth. In fact, business enterprises constantly spend precious financial and human resources in the search for improved processes designed to accomplish the company’s objectives.
There’s no way around it – hard working, conscientious professionals despise mistakes. But there’s also no way around the fact that mistakes are a part of the human experience, both personal and professional. In fact, quotation dictionaries are full of great sayings from famous scientists, coaches, philosophers, and regular Joes, explaining that failure is a great teacher and that success often includes a series of failings. But while it may be true that mistakes cannot be totally avoided, it’s just as important to learn from them, and hopefully not to repeat our mistakes.
