Malbek Announces Name Change to Merlot Amid a Shift in Global Taste

CLM solution seeks to rebottle the future of contract management in response to an evolving palate

Princeton, NJ, April 1, 2022– Malbek, an award-winning contract lifecycle management (CLM) solution, has announced its name change to Merlot in reaction to a shift in global wine preferences.

In recent years, the demand for full-bodied yet easy-to-drink wines has increased. Coupled with the shift to a plant-based diet, Malbek has decided to rebrand to Merlot: a wine that pairs well with the umami of mushrooms and roasted vegetables instead of grilled meats.

“Easy to drink, easy to use: that’s the motto that has guided the decision to rebrand,” says VP of Products Ben Willis. “Merlot is widely viewed as an exceptionally drinkable wine. Our new name really reflects one of our core differentiators: the easy consumption of our system.”

Merlot the CLM solution formerly known as Malbek will keep its iconic purple branding despite its name change. The new name will be rolled out over the next three months.

“The tastes of contract management professionals are always changing,” says CEO and co-founder Hemanth Puttaswamy, “and their hunger for a progressive CLM solution that caters to the whole enterprise, regardless of wine preference, is critical to our success. We believe our name change signals our dedication to our customers’ happiness and success.”

Oh yeah, and Happy April Fools  :)
