Why I Joined Onit?

Hello. I first wanted to introduce myself as a new Onit team member. My name is Jill Black and I have been doing marketing and communication in the legal market for a little more than 10 years. In fact, I was the director of marketing for DataCert, an e-billing and legal spend management company, and was responsible for the company’s global marketing initiatives including tradeshow and seminar management, internal and external communication, media relations, advertising and collateral and website development.

Enough about me. I am hear to tell you about Onit. I decided to join the Onit team for two reasons. First, I just couldn’t stand to be away from the legal technology market. I left for a short hiatus and took a position with a software company in Austin. I know it sounds crazy but I actually missed my colleagues and the long booth hours at the legal tradeshows. What was I thinking!! I also have the pleasure of working with Eric Elfman and Eric Smith again and I just couldn’t say no, especially after spending so much time with them at DataCert.

The second reason I joined Onit was simple. There are no other products in the legal market that does what Onit offers. Okay, I am going to “borrow” a quote from Eric Elfman now. “Lawyers manage projects for a living but aren’t trained in the discipline of project management.” Enough said. There is a huge market opportunity for a lightweight tool that lawyers and people that work with lawyers could use. Onit is the answer …And it’s a catchy name!!

Okay, so now you know who I am and why I joined Onit. Now, I want to tell you that I’m here to help make your Onit user experience the best that it can possibly be. I will be lurking in the community site and posting community updates so I would love to hear your thoughts, comments and ideas for new features. I will also periodically post new blogs about new features or enhancements in Onit.
