How Does Onit Process Work?

Onit Process lets employees request legal services by using a series of process links. These links can live on a legal department’s home page, a shared drive like an intranet or SharePoint site or can be hosted by Onit. A process in Onit is a combination of a form or forms, a wizard for data entry and collection, and workflow that can be either fixed or variable. A homepage link to a process opens a custom, user-friendly form to collect the information that the legal department needs to begin addressing a legal request.
