Onit and London-based BT Group plc have been named joint finalists for the Legalweek Leaders in Tech Law Awards 2021 in the category of Legal Operations. The awards recognize innovation in the legal technology sector and precedent-setting, game-changing projects and initiatives.
Scroll down to hear David Griffin, Head of Legal Technology and Change at BT, talk about the company’s award-winning transformation in the Onit podcast.
This news is even more exciting since BT earned a significant win with the Legal Innovation Awards in June. The team took home the prize in the category of Future of Legal Services Innovation – In-House Legal Operations. This is the second year in a row an Onit customer has won this award.
BT replaced manual and disconnected process and management tools and helped the department manage workload and matters across the teams from inception to closure. Onit’s business automation and workflow platform Apptitude played a pivotal role in BT’s transformation, helping manage their matters and documents. The system was live for matter management and real-time reporting within three months, enabling trend analysis and analytics across work done by the enterprise team.
The BT legal department plans to build and deploy new custom solutions on Onit Apptitude to automate legal operations and compliance processes and better collaborate with business users outside of legal.
BT’s technology implementation results speak for themselves. For every hour automation returns to their lawyers, they can reinvest that time back into something more productive for their company.
Congratulations to BT on this additional recognition from the Legalweek Leaders in Tech Law Awards! Onit is excited to partner with them to support their innovative vision.
