LOS ANGELES, CA — (MARKETWIRE) — 05/20/13 — Onit, a leading provider of business productivity and process management Apps, today announced that Jennifer Billingsley, General Counsel for ZS Associates and Paul Zengilowski, customer development executive for Onit will be presenting on the importance of business process Apps at LegalTech West Coast in Los Angeles.

The discussion, titled “A New Era: Business Apps are Re-Inventing How High-Performing Law Departments Operate,” is scheduled for May 21 at 2:45 pm PT during the conference’s Emerging Technology track. LegalTech West Coast is one of the leading conferences for law firms and legal departments that provides practical information for improving law practice management.

Despite an almost universal focus by corporate law departments on managing risk, improving responsiveness and increasing productivity, most law departments find gaps in their ability to achieve great transparency and insight around their portfolio of work. According to surveys, the gaps relate specifically to the ability to manage workflow, collaboration and transaction review and approval.

However, more and more high-performing law departments are turning to a new category of business process Apps to address these issues and deliver new capabilities to attorneys and the business units they support. During the presentation, Billingsley and Zengilowski will discuss:

  • How a diverse range of companies like ZS Associates, Johnson Controls, and The Home Depot are deploying Onit Apps to support contract review and approval, self-service NDAs, LPO transaction workflow, document assembly and compliance activities
  • How law departments can leverage best practices to improve responsiveness, increase productivity and develop greater insight to their portfolio of work
  • How Apps that augment existing technology including email, matter management, document management and other enterprise systems, can extend and enable the enterprise-wide collaboration necessary to support businesses across organizational and geographic boundaries
