Why automate Legal Operations workflows?
We don’t want to automate the human, everyday tasks that feel good or require the work of a particular person with particular skills. But when it comes to triaging questions, approving requests, and signing and archiving documents, an automated Legal Operations workflow is often the best way to go.
The “repeatable” aspect of manual Legal Operations workflows is what often inflates costs, frustrations, and dire consequences for an organization. Simple human error inevitably produces hiccups in repetitive processes, whether it’s a misrouted document, an incorrectly completed form, an un-archived contract, or another such snafu.
Once you understand your business requirements, your next task is to find the right way to automate the process. By deploying an effective solution, you’ll save time, money, and stop waking up in the middle of the night, wondering whether you should have followed up on a request. It’s time for some restful sleep!
