It is with great pleasure that I am announcing we have successfully completed our open beta. During the twelve-month program, we secured a few thousand subscribers from a cross section of industries including, associations, consulting firms, corporation legal departments, government agencies, law firms, non-profit organizations, vendors, and universities. Nearly 41% of the participants were employed with corporate legal departments or law firms. Interesting enough, 8 of the top 20 highest grossing law firms, (AmLaw200), were participants.
When we officially launched the beta last February at LegalTech NY 2010, we couldn’t anticipate how many users would actually register. More than a year later and a couple thousand users, we would like to personally thank all of the legal and business professionals that participated. This enthusiasm tells us two things — 1. users are willing to embrace new technology and 2. legal project management is here to stay.
We believe that the legal industry is at a critical tipping point, especially related to the procurement of legal services. When legal project management tools like Onit are implemented effectively, legal and business professionals can not only yield better outcomes but they see significant cost savings. LPM tools can also significantly increase project transparency, simplify business collaboration and enhance overall team communication.
Even though the beta is officially over, all of the existing collaboration and project management functionality will remain FREE. If you still haven’t signed up for an account, register today. All you need to get started is an email address. Watch this short video tour to see a quick overview of the application.
