HOUSTON, May 18, 2021 – Onit, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise workflow and artificial intelligence platforms and solutions, including enterprise legal management, contract lifecycle management and business process automation, today announced that it is celebrating its 10th anniversary and a decade of groundbreaking achievements. In 2011, four industry experts started the business with a mission to make it easier for in-house counsel to practice law. Now, it has grown to more than 400 employees and 10,550 customers and has product offerings including workflow automation, business intelligence and artificial intelligence.

The size of the legal technology market is predicted to reach more than $25 billion by 2025. Analysts also forecast that corporate legal departments will spend up to three times more on legal technology in 2025. Onit, with innovative platforms and products for corporate legal, high customer Net Promoter Scores and a focus on innovation, is well-positioned to maintain its market lead.

“Onit is 10, and I am extremely proud of what our company leaders, employees and customers have created,” commented Eric M. Elfman, Onit CEO and co-founder. “We’ve progressed significantly from 2011, when we had two employees and $25,000 in revenue, to a company processing more than $5 billion in legal invoices in one year. We started with one no-code platform and a goal to disrupt enterprise legal management and other legacy technologies for corporate legal. Now, we’ve extended that vision to contract lifecycle management, AI, legal holds, legal service requests and our second AI-powered business intelligence platform, Precedent.”
