HOUSTON, TX — (MARKETWIRE) — 10/02/13 — Onit, a leading provider of Smart Process Apps, today announced a new series of East coast seminars focused on illustrating how Smart Process Apps can improve legal services. The seminars kick off on Oct. 8 in Atlanta and include stops in Washington D.C. (Oct. 9) and Boston (Oct. 10) and feature presentations from leading global organizations including The Home Depot and APCO Worldwide.
No matter what industry, products, services or customers, all businesses need flexible processes that can scale with demand and the right tools to support it. Fortune® 500 and AmLaw 100 legal organizations are no different. Despite practicing law from different perspectives, the success of their organizations depends on their dexterity to respond to the demand for services as well as the ability to provide enhanced legal services.
Smart Process Apps are quickly emerging as a forerunner for enabling efficient and cost-effective processes. The featured organizations will share how they rely on Smart Process Apps to manage risk, increase responsiveness to clients, improve the productivity of attorneys and drive greater transparency around their portfolio of work.
The first meeting — scheduled for Tuesday, October 8 in Atlanta — features Libby Troughton, Senior Manager in The Home Depot’s Legal IT department, who will discuss the company’s legal department business challenges, the need for the Onit Contract Review & Approval App to improve performance, the strategy they developed to implement it and the business results they’ve achieved.
The roadshow continues on Wednesday, October 9 in Washington, D.C., as Jonathan Friedman, Assistant General Counsel APCO Worldwide, will share the reasons his legal department selected Smart Business Process Apps from Onit, how they were implemented and the results the legal team has seen to date.
On Tuesday, October 10, the roadshow continues to Boston. There, a local law firm will review the firm’s Alternative Fee Arrangement (AFA) processes and how Onit’s AFA Submission and Approval App helps the firm work towards its clients’ interests and supports the forecasting and budgeting processes critical to making the issue of pricing transparent so clients aren’t surprised about their legal bills.
All in-house counsel and technology professionals are invited to attend.

Onit was formed by legal software industry experts Eric M. Elfman and Eric A. Smith, co-founders of Datacert, a leading provider of enterprise spend management software. Launched in early 2010, Onit deploys Smart Process Apps to simplify business process automation and improve business productivity across all departments and industries. The Onit App Builder allows business users to drive efficiency and productivity by combining business process management, project management, and information management into one easy to use tool so the user can create their own Onit Apps without having to rely on IT for support.
Businesses have processes for everything — whether it’s hiring a vendor or law firm, terminating an employee, submitting a contract for review, requesting a trademark request, obtaining an NDA, etc. Most of these processes are manual, paper intensive and cumbersome. With Onit Apps, processes are automated in a few clicks, responsible parties are notified immediately, and data collection is centralized. Onit doesn’t require any software to download or resources from IT. For more information, visit www.onit.com or contact 1-800-281-1330.
