Integrating matter management, legal management, and workflow automation
Legal departments are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and depend on complex softwares to stay on top of their ever growing list of responsibilities. When a legal department purchases a new technology, they must ensure that it works with their current systems.
Integrations take priority, and often, a legal department looks for software applications that have more integrations than they need because we don’t know what the future holds. Why buy a piece of equipment that can only respond to one command? How does that prepare you for a future that is still full of undiscovered opportunities?
It is for these reasons that our Director of Product Management for TeamConnect for Team Connect, Kim Howard, has been focusing on synergies and symbiosis in the latest product releases. Howard explains that symbiosis is necessary when we look to the demands of growing legal departments:
“The evolution of sophisticated workflow needs within legal departments has driven us to continue to deepen the capabilities, and the complementary capabilities between a legal department’s system of record and workflow engine provide endless possibilities.”
We have always placed importance on the close relationship between our enterprise legal management software and our workflow engines, but now more than ever, we have brought them together. She explains, “Each one of the applications stands alone magnificently, but together they create endless possibilities to support the evolution of legal department needs.”
When adopted in tandem, their native integrations give them all the capability of a single platform. For all intents and purposes, the two become one. The line blurs to the point of invisibility and indivisibility: the platform doesn’t simply connect technologies but in fact expands them.
