A Platform Power Play: Why Workflow is Critical

One of the key areas where law department operation professionals are seeking operational wins is by automating legal and business processes. Legal teams today are being asked to do more with less resources but they need software to augment this challenge. A powerful platform can not only meet their growing workflow and business needs but it can help with collaboration, transaction management (i.e. contracts, matters, invoices, etc.) and reporting capabilities.

Learn why a platform approach is the right decision for today’s legal team. The speakers discussed how to drive change with process efficiencies to manage their legal operations. The presentation highlights the following:

  • The rational of a platform versus point solutions
  • How automating workflows gives a better view of all on-going business transactions
  • Lessons learned from the selection and implementation process
  • Early results from gaining visibility into their legal operations
