|WHEN:||Monday June 5, 2:30 – 3:30 p.m.|
|SESSION:||A Better Way to Run Legal Operations: The Enterprise Legal Management Paradigm Shift is Now (Session 601)|
For nearly two decades, enterprise legal management (ELM) has focused on matter management and spend management. It’s fair to say that effective ELM platforms were, and still are, good at what they do best – only matter and spend management.
There has been a distinct paradigm shift and evolutionary branching off from those older ELM systems. Today, the most effective ELM platforms facilitate engagement, are focused on “process,” offer an environment where the user experience is crucial and can be augmented to manage other legal processes. Today’s definition of ELM includes all of the following tasks — contract management, legal service requests, NDAs, and legal holds (to name a few).
This session will highlight how innovative legal departments have acknowledged the evolutionary ELM paradigm shift and have implemented solutions to get ahead of the curve.
- The importance of process, workflow, and collaboration
- How a business automation tool solves needs beyond e-billing and matter management
- Key benchmarks and metrics that drive innovation and transformation in legal operations
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 2011, Onit deploys Onit Apps to simplify business process automation and improve business productivity across all departments and industries. 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.
