Today’s client story comes from a mid-sized engineering company that develops and constructs global oil and gas projects. As their legal department grew in size, they were experiencing several pain points: inability to measure and track spend, an ever-increasing workload for legal staff, and a lack of communication across global legal offices. It became apparent that they needed a system focused on the legal department and its needs.
This is a story we hear time and again, particularly from companies who have no legal management system in place. The client chose Lawtrac, our single, integrated out-of-the-box legal management platform, as it is not only easy to use and implement, but will easily grow with the company. It has the e-Billing capabilities they needed to track spend, as well as robust matter management for more effective communication. This customer now experiences much more efficiency, better global collaboration, and the ability to measure the health of the business. They can report on both workload and spend, and have a more streamlined legal department.
If you have never had an enterprise legal management system before, it can feel daunting to take the plunge. However, our clients are experiencing reduced costs and more proactive decision-making because they chose to implement matter management and spend management. If you are currently using spreadsheets or the same document management system as the rest of the company to cobble together a legal process, I encourage you to reach out to us. We’d love to show you how we’ve been able to help clients like the one discussed here.
