NEW YORK, NY — (MARKETWIRE) — 01/30/12 — Onit, a leading provider of business productivity and process management apps, today unveiled new apps at LegalTech New York 2012® for Legal and Governance, Risk & Compliance departments. Designed to help business and legal teams become more efficient at what they do, Onit Apps streamline operations, automate processes, drive control costs and help reduce company risk.
Onit Apps bring consumer-like application simplicity to the business enterprise. Process is inherent in everything a company does. Onit Apps are designed for business managers that need more than email and spreadsheets to automate, manage and track business-critical processes.
“Onit Apps are different than other business process tools in the market today,” commented Eric M. Elfman, CEO of Onit. “They are built to deliver real value to the business user and designed to simplify business processes like contract review and approval, NDA requests, ethics violations, whistleblower reports, IP infringement, etc. Onit Apps are unique in that they let business users consume and interact with data in a way that is familiar to them, similar to the way they engage with Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.”
Onit Legal Apps
Processes are integral in every department and legal is no exception. Onit’s Legal Apps can be tailored for any legal process and are designed specifically for the business user — not IT. Some of the compelling features include real-time notifications, custom templates, flexible workflow, easy-to-use checklists and collaboration features. Today, Onit has Apps for the following processes:
- Contract Review & Approval
- Service Mark or Trademark Registration
- IP Infringement
- E-billing & Spend Management
- Matter Management
- Matter Intake
- Invention Disclosure
Onit Governance, Risk & Compliance Apps
Ethics and compliance policies are necessary to minimize a company’s risk and exposure. As companies struggle to do “more” with fewer resources, Onit’s Apps can bridge the gap to make compliance easier, more consistent and effective. Unfortunately, human-driven processes leave an organization exposed to risk and potential lawsuits. Onit’s Apps were designed to mitigate these claims by simplifying and automating the process. Onit’s Governance, Risk & Compliance Apps include:
- Ethics Violations
- Whistleblower Reports
- E&O Claims
- SAS-70/SSAE-16 Compliance
- Incident/Accident Reports
Pricing & Availability
Onit’s Legal and Governance, Risk & Compliance Apps are available immediately and pricing is based on a monthly subscription. Onit Apps are cloud-based so there is no software to install or expensive upfront investment. Demos of all the apps will be shown during the LegalTech New York 2012 tradeshow in the Cyber Café Monday, January 30 – Wednesday, February 1.
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 Onit 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.
