There’s a change happening in the legal world. Increasingly, the corporate legal operations or general counsels’ offices are no longer being seen as just business necessities; they are being seen as business units. And while they aren’t necessarily being looked at to drive a profit, the expectation is that they will operate more strategically.
Automate daily processes so you can focus on strategy
Often, corporate counsel are mired in day-to-day support activity and cannot get free to be meaningfully involved in strategic business unit priorities. This leaves other processes in the legal department fractured. In an effort to get better control of these day-to-day operations, work migrates to email and spreadsheets. Processes get encapsulated in forms and flowcharts and Excel gets leaned on as a tool for tracking and reporting. And all of this may work for a while, but these aren’t solutions that can scale.
Onit’s Legal Department Operations solutions automate manual processes and pull those messages and spreadsheets out of someone’s inbox or off their desktop and places them into a system that facilitates better collaboration, increased efficiencies and improved visibility. And without the need to support day-to-day activity, you can focus on operating the department more strategically.
"The team has automated workflows and reporting supported by Onit’s business process management platform and uses DocuSign to support its contracting needs with law firm panel members. By employing competitive, market-driven tools, the LOC was able to realize reductions in hourly panel rates ranging from 2 to 32 percent. In all, the creation of the LOC and its innovative work has saved AIG more than $200 million in legal costs in 2014 alone."
