In seeking to implement a proven technology foundation for the legal department, Interstate Batteries’ goals were specifically to increase efficiency, establish improved processes, track key metrics within the team, and do a better job servicing their constituents within the corporation.
“Our internal business partners place a high value on the legal department’s ability to efficiently, effectively, and expeditiously provide first-class counsel. This necessarily involves the need to collaborate really well with internal customers, outside counsel and other legal department personnel on a host of matters – both litigation and transactional. As a fairly small legal department, there is a natural tension that exists between achieving those objectives and our actual capacity to do so,” noted Interstate Batteries’ Deputy General Counsel, Kelvin Sellers. “Lawtrac represents an opportunity for us to discard of our antiquated way of approaching collaboration and matter management, free up some capacity, and deliver excellently on our promises to the businesses.”
