TeamConnect was the back-to-back champion of LegalTech News’ Most Innovative Award for Best Matter Management platform in the world in 2015 and 2016.
Organizations that select TeamConnect as their legal management solution typically have large legal teams with complex needs. These organizations often require integration of multiple internal systems across the enterprise, both domestically and globally. By consolidating all critical legal functions and integrating with daily technologies and legal department processes, TeamConnect provides a single source of truth for the legal department.
How TeamConnect solved similar challenges for our clients
With each new project, legal departments face increased workloads and shifting priorities. Often, the Office of the General Counsel must do so with only existing staff. At the same time, the legal department is also trying to manage budgets, reduce outside counsel costs, and gain insight into legal spend and staff workload across business units both domestically and globally.
TeamConnect serves as the hub of activity for the legal department, driving efficient collaboration with both internal stakeholders and outside firms, providing detailed legal data, and ensuring maximum value to the entire organization. Our clients consistently save their organizations 5-15% annually using a unified approach to streamline legal operations.
There is no other ELM platform for complex legal organizations that can offer a no compromises promise – legal departments can have robust, powerful functionality and flexibility while still having a system that is easy to implement, maintain, and upgrade. Our Upgrades Included Program offers something no other vendor is providing. Upgrading is an expensive, painful, and time-consuming process, but TeamConnect offers deep, powerful, and sophisticated functionality that can be efficiently and sustainably implemented, administered, and upgraded. While clients can still customize and extend TeamConnect to their own unique business needs, TeamConnect’s highly configurable architecture, new upgrade tools, and robust API layer ensure an ease of ownership for large legal departments that is unparalleled.
